Marianne Willamson's "A Return to Love",
This review is from: A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles" (Paperback)
To be of love ...to feel it to the depth of your souls existence and be so absolutely passionate about it, enough to not only receive this love...but to have such a wonderful understanding of it,so much so that you can explain it to others and show others the way "to be of love" is a divine gift. I don't know you Marianne, or know much about you, but what I feel is that God needed someone strong with a personality just like yours, no, actually who he needed was you, because he knew about your determination and resolve to fight injustice as you saw it through your view, and that not only would you be able to be determined enough to understand this love for yourself but to explain it to others as well. God knew you would not only be so intriged by the ideas you "accidently" found but so intense and determined in your soul to understand them, that when things didn't seem right to you, you would be so incensed it would "tick you off" and you would definitely let everyone know about how you felt because the feelings raced through you like a wildfire. "Being you" was just the right "mix' for this, a person with such intense emotions that you would be able to accomplish this. I have some of your tapes and when I hear you pray the emotions I feel well up into my soul and spill out from my heart... because I feel your passion to this quest you have accepted.I feel the emotion in your heart that this gift brings you and appreciate your desire to share it. Maybe some people don't understand this love but it is divine and it is your gift to share it and I appreciate you for who you are...perfect in all ways...perfectly created by Gods love you are... Marianne. Love, Linda
I would like to share something very personal so that others may know that when Marianne writes about surrender she is accurate beyond imagining. She speaks of surrendering to God and that possibly we could agree to surrender things that are of no importance to begin with and so we trifle with God trying to ease our way in to the idea of surrender...but what she shares is true...the more important it is to us...the more we must surrender and let go...detaching without expectations of the outcome... and this is what happened when my son Jason, that I speak of so often with such love, was on his return journey to God. I cannot explain how this happened I just know it did. Events unfolded as they were supposed to and God took care of every detail to perfection and surrender brought us to this place of peace we accept as Gods gift to us for our faith. I feel that God wants us to share this story and He is making everything possible to accomplish His wish. By our faith we walked into the unknown and we were rewarded for it by Gods love. Share your story with the world is what I heard to give hope to everyone...and that is my deepest hearts desire to accomplish Gods vision...begin the love is what I heard...with Jesus always in my heart I share this now. May Gods blessings to us of unconditional love be felt in every heart as we begin the love.Amen. Love, Jason in Heaven and Linda on earth.
