Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

For more than 30 years, Williamson, a student and teacher of the spiritual “discipline” called A Course in Miracles, has been distilling the guide’s dense texts for a general audience. Her seminal piece, A Return to Love (1992), remains a classic of spirituality writing, and in subsequent books, she has used parts of that original volume to show how the Course can be applied to such diverse problems as reshaping America and even losing weight. Here the task is to explain how the Course’s core principles—everything but love is an illusion, and letting go of fear and shifting one’s trust into a loving state produce miracles—apply to people who are broke and broken. Williamson’s easy, caring writing style makes almost anything seem possible, and here it is used to best advantage to rethink issues about why people continue to have doubts even under the best of financial conditions. The take here is that while today’s circumstances make it easy to believe in scarcity rather than abundance, in spirit there is never a lack of possibility. The rest of the book goes on to “prove” this is true and offer ways to incorporate more positive thinking into one’s life. Fans will appreciate this approach; unbelievers will scoff; but those in the middle, given Williamson’s gentle power of persuasion, might say, “It can’t hurt.” HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Most of Williamson’s books have been best-sellers, and she’s a familiar media face who knows how to attract an audience. --Ilene Cooper

I am 59 years old and have just lost everything I own. I am starting again with such faith and confidence, which is very different to how I was before I read this book. She has literally saved me and set me on a new wondrous voyage. I have lived my life, brought up a daughter from a a very young age, had many long term relationships, been battered emotionally by life, yet I survived through sheer grit and determination never taking the time to look deep to heal wounds and to set boundries. The recession in South Africa over the last 3 years affected my business and I made some pretty stupid decisions and got involved with the wrong people. After a protracted court case which I won, the company went into voluntary liquidation which meant I lost everything. Because I know and believe that I am in exactly the right place at the right time, I looked very deeply at what caused this situation and why. It started with me and ends with me. What lessons I learned! I wake every morning with a prayer on my lips, energy to get through the day regardless of banks and creditors phoning me. Marianne, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for reminding me that God is my partner, that I am protected and that things can change in an instant when I ask. You have made it easy and also taught me how to pray. I believe in miracles. Elain Steinberg. South Africa

Format: Hardcover
In these difficult economic times Marianne Williamson's new book, "The Law of Divine Compensation: On Work, Money, and Miracles" is a refreshing reminder that God's love is the true source of our abundance.

"Finance is just one of many areas where an increasingly obsolete, materially based worldview is proving to be inadequate to the challenges of the times in which we live," Williamson writes in the preface of her book. The author's message of God's unconditional love trumping worldly possessions resonated with me. I found myself underlying passages in page after page for future reference (the most words I've highlighted in any book I've read this year).

Williamson is not preaching to us from the mountain top. Similar to her writing style in other books, she is very vulnerable with her own struggles - this time in the financial realm. In "Divine Compensation" she tells a story of how she lost $10,000 early in her speaking career due to poor event planning. "Oh Daddy," she recalls telling her father, "It was such a bomb!" Williamson describes how this personal misfortune taught her a lesson. After consoling words from her father, she relates how she chose to think about this incident was the key to transforming it to positive experience. She could either see it "as proof of utter failure and doom or as an opportunity to forgive myself and attract a miracle." Williamson, in being open with her own shortcomings, gives the reader a sense of being counseled by a friend, rather than being lectured at by a "know it all" spiritual guru.

I wasn't expecting to read about the value of forgiveness in a book about work and money, but according to Williamson a forgiving spirit is essential in attracting our own good.

Marianne's new book is very timely and will be inspirational to many. I've been a fan of hers since the early 90s and have read all of her books. I've liked some more than others but this new one is her best yet! I also really loved "The Gift of Change."

Surrender has been up for me in many ways this past year and as I opened her book I came to this prayer:

~ Dear God,
I surrender to You who I am,
what I have and what I do.
May my life and talents be used
in whatever way serves You best.

I surrender to You my failures
and any pain still in my heart.
I surrender to You my successes
and the hopes that they contain.

May the Light of Your Love
shine deep within my heart
and extend through me
to bless the world.
Amen. ~

~ from Marianne Williamson's new book:
The Law of Divine compensation

thank you Marianne

Over the course of reading this book (only a few days because I couldn't put it down!), I've witnessed not only a change in my thoughts and attitude, but also an improvement in my circumstances already! I've been out of work for 6 months, forced out due to debilitating depression and anxiety caused by an insane workload and toxic environment. I had to give up what I had once thought was the job of my dreams, with a great paycheck to boot, and have been deeply struggling to heal and get back on my feet. Finally feeling well enough now to jump back up on the work horse, the fear of not knowing where I'm going or what I'm supposed to do has been looming over my head. The tedious and grueling task of applying and interviewing for jobs, waiting for good news but only getting rejections, will make most people doubt themselves and feel like there's no light at the end of the tunnel. On top of it, I have a massive amount of debt that I cannot pay--it's a struggle just to get the rent paid and keep a roof over my head. The pressure and stress has been eating me alive. Thankfully, in doing much self-help reading to improve my illness as well as continue my ongoing spiritual development, I came across this book. After the first night of reading and applying the mindfulness strategies, I woke up to a voicemail from a prospective employer! I continued to read and apply--the next day I had more voicemails and a bunch of e-mails! I'm amazed at how quickly the universe responded to my diligent prayers and meditation--not because I didn't believe, just simply in awe of the miracles unfolding before me! I know that my life has so much potential, and I know that God directed me to this book. What a blessing!
