Everyday Grace, Having Hope, Finding Forgiveness, and Making Miracles
Marianne Williamson

1 "Building genuine connection and deep community among the peoples of the world is the historical task of our generation."

2 "Love is literally the power of God alive on earth. It is a transformative, alchemical, miraculous force."

3 "A God who created the world as one perceives it as one and loves it as one. That which is love cannot withhold love. His hand is in the tiniest details, whether they're a million miles away or right at the tip of my nose. His creation is a panoply of radiant genius reaching from the smallest wildflower to the mystery of quarks."

4 "Our hope is born of participation in hopeful solutions, for, ultimately, the only way to feel hope is to give hope to someone else. And then we see that it is all around us. The world should feel hopeful because YOU are here. You ARE the hope, because God is in you."

5 "It's the beginning of your day. You awake and look around you, finding perhaps a joyful expectation, or perhaps an awful dread. No matter which, remember this: God loves you with an infinite love."

6 "We must see with total clarity that what is not love is fear. And we must understand that every negative emotion therefore derives from fear."

7 "No matter what the circumstance, we can choose to infuse it with light."

8 "Each of us has an inner room where we can visit to be cleansed of fear-based thoughts and feelings. This room, the holy of holies, is a sanctuary of spiritual light."

9 "Compassion is not just emotion; it is force. It is an aspect of the infinite power of God. Humanity's next great leap in consciousness will be the realization that love is a power to be applied – no less than the power of steam, the power of electricity, or the power of the atom."

10 "Every single part of reality is an aspect of the greater glory of God."

11 "Essentially, our greatest hope has already been realized. Heaven is here and now, in our capacity to realize our oneness."

12 "The universe is holographic, which means the whole is present in every piece."

13 "'Dear God, please make me an instrument of your peace….' is one of the most famous lines of prayer. And there is good reason for that. We know it speaks to something profoundly practical and real that will, if we allow it to, overcome all the darkness and hatred in the world."

14 "Today, we know there is love in our hearts, but we have only begun to scratch the surface of how we can use it to restore and transform our world. It is the task of our generation to turn love into a social force. The most significant development of the twenty-first century will be the harnessing of the social potential of love."

15 "Fear melts away when we refuse to affirm its ultimate reality. When we see beyond fear, it dissolves."

16 "A life of magnitude does not just happen; it is consciously chosen. Living is an endlessly creative process in which we work on achieving the life we want through our willingness to be who we would like to be."

17 "I am always at choice: experience the miracles of life as they come to me or blind myself to them, with the audacity to believe that God ever, ever, ever did not know what He was doing."

18 "We must make love the center of all our enterprises – collective as well as individual. When harmlessness toward life becomes a personal, social, economic, and political imperative, we will be on our way at last to the restoration and regeneration of our civilization."

19 "The human race now stands on the brink of a historic transformation, with new eyes, new ears, new minds, and new hearts emerging from the cosmic drama of human evolution. As an embryo becomes a baby, we are becoming a new, more spiritualized version of ourselves."

20 "The world is a reflection of humanity's collective consciousness, and each of us has access to the collective through the auspices of our own mind."

21 "The resurrective tendency of the universe is always at work in our personal trials and in our collective challenges. God, in His awesomeness and infinitude, has provided a solution to every problem, the moment the problem occurs. The part that any of us can play in providing that solution is etched on our hearts."

22 "The moment a mistake – any deviation from love – occurs, a perfect, all-knowing God has already planned a correction. All we have to do is ask that it be revealed to us."

23 "Because all minds are joined, deep peace cultivated anywhere is a blessing on people everywhere."

24 "There is nothing and no one outside us, so much as there are mirrors everywhere. Every person is a part of us, and we are a part of every person."

25 "When you give love you will feel love. That is Law."
