[1: 1,558 of 10,000] The Law of Divine Compensation By Marianne Williamson

Law-of-Divine-Compensation

The best way to finish a book is when you have about 5 hours to spare at the bookstore and read for free. I am grateful that The Dubai Mall has Kinokuniya, which is my favourite place to read. For this post, I’ve also listened to the interview done by The Moore Show wherein the book was discussed.

My favourite take-away from the book may be summed up with the following beautiful quotes –

  1. Spiritual growth involves giving up the stories of your past so the universe can write a new one.
  2. Nothing binds you except your thoughts; nothing limits you except your fear; and nothing controls you except your beliefs.
  3. There are four rules for miraculous work creation: Be positive. Send love. Have fun. Kick ass. A miracle is a shift in perception from fear to love—from a belief in what is not real, to faith in that which is. That shift in perception changes everything.
  4. Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.
  5. You are loved, and your purpose is to love.
  6. To whatever extent your mind is aligned with love, you will receive divine compensation for any lack in your material existence. From spiritual substance will come material manifestation. This is not just a theory; it is a fact. It is a law by which the universe operates. I call it the Law of Divine Compensation.
  7. From a mind filled with infinite love comes the power to create infinite possibilities. We have the power to think in ways that reflect and attract all the love in the world. Such thinking is called enlightenment. Enlightenment is not a process we work toward, but a choice available to us in any instant.
  8. Love makes us wake up in the morning with a sense of purpose and a flow of creative ideas. Love floods our nervous system with positive energy, making us far more attractive to prospective employers, clients, and creative partners. Love fills us with powerful charisma, enabling us to produce new ideas and new projects, even within circumstances that seem to be limited. Love leads us to atone for our errors and clean up the mess when we’ve made mistakes. Love leads us to act with impeccability, integrity, and excellence. Love leads us to serve, to forgive, and to hope. Those things are the opposite of a poverty consciousness; they’re the stuff of spiritual wealth creation.
  9. We lack faith in *what* exists within us because we lack faith in *Who* exists within us.
  10. God has given you your identity, and that cannot be taken away. God has imbued you with infinite potential, and that cannot be taken away. God has provided you with the opportunity to change your thinking in an instant, and that cannot be taken away. God has given you the capacity to love, and that cannot be taken away. God has entrusted you with the power to live in the light of His abundance in any moment, and that cannot be taken away.

Selected quotes were taken from GoodReads.com.

It is beautiful to live in the world when we know we are highly involved in being part of the abundant miracles available to us. It takes having faith of God’s love, our capacity to love and be of service, exercise a positive attitude, and being able to have fun and kick ass.

[1: 1,437 of 10,000] Even Love Will Kill You!

In Article on April 15, 2015 at 9:04 AM

I was sitting at the mall’s food court and a man was talking to another person. I didn’t catch the whole conversation but the man was explaining that “Too much of anything is bad for you. Even love will kill you.” He said it like he meant it, there was no hesitation, it was a dead on statement.

I know too much of ‘things’ is bad for you but I couldn’t possibly categorise ‘love’ as a thing, it’s a term when we use to demonstrate a feeling that is beyond explanation but it definitely roots to something good, beautiful, and kind. We often misuse the word to describe what we feel about something or someone without comprehending the extend of what it essentially and truly means.

I thought my heart was just broken because I believed I have loved someone and yet unrequited. So I might not be truly romantically in love, because if I do, I shall not desire for attention, make false assumptions, daydream, and be jealous of what isn’t mine, I shall let people be and I shall be me.

“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.”
― Marianne Williamson

We are meant to love everybody but not romantically for everyone because romance includes lust and lifetime commitment. We can’t go shagging everybody if we won’t be responsible when someone gets pregnant and there’s actually an actual child to be raised.  As I type this part, complex things are start raging into my head but love should be peaceful and simple; as Cinderella 2015 taught, ‘have courage’ to cast all fears and ‘be kind’ for everything that we don’t necessary understand and continue to do good.

[1: 1,411 of 10,000] Grievances or Miracles But Not Both

In Journal, Prayer on March 12, 2015 at 8:52 PM

Mary Ann Williamson

I am amazed with the wisdom that Marianne Williamson shares to the world, I wish I would reach that state too.

She said in one of the interviews with Oprah Winfrey, it is either you have grievances or miracles but not both. She described that if we are open to love, when we truly forgive, when we don’t let hate and fear to remain in our lives, we are able to download all the blessings waiting for us.

I highly recommend if you have 2 hours and 40 minutes, listen to the audio book of “Return to Love” from YouTube. She explained what the elusive EGO (basically my fears that give all its efforts to sabotage my inner peace) is and she opens my heart to recognise GOD who is within me and is LOVE. Also, she shared various beautiful prayers that are authentically loving. Here’s one…

Dear God,

Please give my life some sense of purpose. Use me as an instrument of your peace. Use my talents and abilities to spread love. I surrender my job to you. Help me to remember that my real job is to love the world. Thank you.

Amen.

I love this line too – “With prayers we speak to God; with miracles HE responds.”

May your life be full of LOVE.
