Each week we feature one book from our Amazon store. The best of the best. The books that change lives.
“A Return to Love” is based on Marianne’s reflections on “A Course in Miracles” and her insights on love and inner peace. For those that couldn’t make it through the 699 page “A Course In Miracles”, Williamson’s book is a great Cliff Notes to that piece. Her writing makes the concepts easy grasp and she does a great job of simply explaining how the ego blocks our experience of love and happiness and that loving ourselves is just as important as loving others.
This book is in our top 5 of all-time ‘must read’ books. In fact, we’d go so far as to say it’s #2 on our list. People who love it return to it over and over again. If you hadn’t read it yet, it might just be that it wasn’t your time. Some say this book finds you.
Simply put, Return to Love is the ultimate “how to” improve your consciousness book. It’s a great read – and perhaps an even greater listen. I listened to this book driving up the coast to a retreat at Esalen, and the drive may have been as good as the retreat. Marianne’s voice is music.
A miracle-worker is an artist of the soul. There is no higher art than living a good life. An artist informs the world of what’s available behind the masks we all wear. That’s what we’re all here to do. The reason so many of us are obsessed with becoming stars is because we’re not starring in our own lives. The cosmic spotlight isn’t pointed at you; it radiates from within you. I used to feel like I was waiting for someone to discover me, to “produce me,” like Lana Turner at the drugstore. Ultimately I realized that the person I was waiting for was myself. If we wait for the world’s permission to shine, we will never receive it. The ego doesn’t give that permission. Only God does, and He has already done so. He has sent you here as His personal representative and is asking you to channel His love into the world. Are you waiting for a more important job? There isn’t one.
