Based on her book: “A Return to Love. Reflections on the Principles of A COURSE IN MIRACLES”
Hey there guys!
How’s your weekend going?
I’ve decide to start sharing with you who my teachers are and what they teach me. And here’s the first one in those series. We’ll take a break from time management for a little bit and I’ll make sure to come back to it and wrap up all the other important parts so you guys have ALL the info you need to be in charge of your time.
One of my teachers that is Marianne Williamson. She wrote this book called “A Return to Love” Reflections on the work of A Course in Miracles.
Here are a few of my favourite quotes from that book!
“We will always learn what we have chosen to teach”.
I love this quote because I experience this with a lot of things in my life, small things like by teaching kids to ski I master the sport myself at a deeper level, and big things like teaching all you guys about how amazing you all are: I learn how amazing we all are, more than I have ever imagined.
“Since no thoughts are neutral, every relationship takes us deeper into heaven or deeper in to hell”
Such a simple way to look at relationships!!
All relationships are – are our thoughts.
If those thoughts are loving then you are creating a loving relationship (heaven for yourself) or if the thoughts are unloving then you create an unloving relationship (or hell) for yourself.
“Forgiveness is the key to inner peace because it is the mental technique by which our thoughts are transformed from fear to love.”
Love thinking about forgiveness as a technique to transform our thoughts and feel better.
Whenever you are feeling bad that means your thoughts are fearful and you can use forgiveness to changes those thoughts to loving thoughts! Sounds easy right! But we all know it’s not always easy.
“We must reveal ourselves at the deepest level in order to find out how lovable we are.”
That one spoke to me so much as I am going through my initial stages of starting a business and opening up on my blog, creating videos and all of it is requiring me to dig deep and work with the painful experiences that I’ve had and use them to teach. It is so scary to open up! What if yo’all don’t like me ?!
But the opening up is so worth it as you gain such freedom in being exactly who you are, without hiding anything. Whatever you are ‘hiding’ from others, I encourage you to open up and love yourself with all that exposed. Do it!
“Partners are meant to have a priestly role in each other’s lives. They are meant to help each other access the highest parts within themselves.”
I’ve learned that to be true with my husband, the more we open up to each other and support each other the more growth we both experience.
It’s a beautiful thing if you can be as crazy as you can be with your partner and it’s all good, that’s when growth happens.
“We don’t get to the light through constant investigation of the darkness. The only way to the light is through entering the light.”
Wow, that is so true. Small things and big. We don’t get to mental health through constant investigation into what’s wrong with us, we imagine and strive and work towards the mental health we DO want.
“It often seems that our lives get worse rather than better when we begin to work deeply on ourselves. Life doesn’t actually get worse, it just that we feel our own transgressions more because we’re no longer anesthetiser by unconsciousness.”
Who here has found this to be true? I am raising my hand for this one.
“Your power is a result of your decision to reveal it.”
That is such an interesting way to describe it. Love it!
This next one I love because it can help anyone with promoting(in business and in life) themselves:
“If we think of selling – We’re afraid of either success or failure. If we make the switch from selling to service we can focus on love. The issue is the presence of fear, and it’s inevitability whenever love is absent.”
This worked like magic for me to be able to show up for my clients and serve them on the highest level. “I am here to serve.” – Is all I have to say to myself and the fear disappears.
“When our desire is to give instead of get, our core belief is that we have so much abundance, we can afford to give it away.”
And this quote is why I’m here to serve you guys! I truly feel this way and I’m so pumped to share with you everything I know and see how amazing your lives become!
If you are looking to really study the teachings of The Course in Miracles, this book is an excellent choice, I would highly recommend it.
Love you guys!
Have a great week everyone!
