As for those who try and insult her work just because she hasn't been married to 'Joe Schmoe' for 25 years with a whole troop of kids and grandkids...might I remind those that true love does not always take the traditional conventional route. Some of the greatest loves of my life have been men I never married and never would, the real point is that they were all still worthwhile and valid experiences that contributed to my growth and knowledge as a person. Also just because someone manages to stay married for 25 years in no way means that relationship is healthy, happy or worth emulating.
With that being said this book has to be one of her more underrated works yet in my opinion I found it to be the most poignant and moving. It has definitely deepened my emotional and spiritual capacity to feel and accept love into my life.
One of Ms. Wiliamson's earlier books, A Return to Love, explained some of the principles of A Course in Miracles as they relate to issues in daily life. A Return to Love was a very clear, well written book, that I have enjoyed reading at least five times over the past few years. Unfortunately I found Enchanted Love something of a disappointment. It lacks the organization around clear topics that one finds in A Return to Love. Enchanted Love contains some very good paragraphs, but the book often seems like a not very interesting assortment of preachy pronouncements. Although some of the author's statements are explained with examples, others are simply uttered, and one may well wonder "Is that really true?" or even "What does that mean?"
We are told, for example: "I once heard Pat Allen say that men produce into women's appetites. Men are by nature producers, and one of the things they produce into is female desire. From our sexual lives to our emotional lives, that is an archetypal pattern of great beauty and significance." I do not have the vaguest idea who Pat Allen is. I have never before heard the verb "produce" followed by the preposition "into." I cannot imagine what "produce into" means, but "producing into" certainly does not sound like a pattern of beauty to me. Perhap there are circles of people who know of Pat Allen and who speak of "producing into appetites." Who knows? I don't. One wonders what sort of editorial process the book went through.

Now, Marianne's work usually has me at hello, but she took an odd angle with Enchanted Love that had me cocking my head a bit. I remember thinking, "Ah...she must have been in love when she wrote this..." While Marianne is usually so forthright in her work, this one has that sticky-sweet flavor that none of her other offerings sport. I'd just completed The Law of Divine Compensation, quickly followed by A Return to Love, and desired a continuation of the same.
However, once I got over my insistence that she write the dang book my way - which, you know, is so very effective - I began to appreciate what Marianne envisioned as she wrote. As I let go of my resistance, I warmed to this softer version of her voice, and began to appreciate the profound wisdom of her words.
As such, the inner shift that had begun as I read Return to Love accelerated within my consciousness and became more polished. I began to see the soul of the man who I'd just met, and realized that the spiritual heart beating within his chest was also my own. I realized that, after decades of only seeing the "wrong" types of men cross my radar, while simultaneously refusing to allow God to express itself through me in the scope of my relationships, I had indeed let go and healed. I had emotionally and spiritually grown up. I could finally welcome God into my relationships...both with others and with myself.
God speaks with us in many forms, and Marianne is quintessentially the best at pulling us out of ourselves and showing us the Truth of who we are. Our only task is that we open and receive. I am so grateful that I have.
