Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of a Course in Miracles
We were born with a natural tendency to focus o love. Our imaginations were creative and flourishing, and we knew hot to use them. We were connected to a richer world, a world full of enchantment and sense of the miraculous.
So what happened? Why is it that we reached a certain age, looked around and the enchantment was gone?
Because we were taught to focus elsewhere, on fear instead of love. As Marianne Williamson explains in A Return To Love, we've been taught since we were children that we're separate from other people, that we have to compete to get ahead, that we're not quite good enough the way we are. We were taught to see the world the way that others had come to see it, full of fear, without gentleness or hope.
A Return To Love is a spiritual travel guide for our journey back to the truth we were born with. This journey is a process, psychologically and emotionally, in which we surrender all preconceived notions of how wee live our lives and why. As we let go the ego control that has ruled us for ages, we learn a different kind of knowing. Let Marianne Williamson take you on this journey, where we relinquish the fear that has been accumulating for years, and accept the back into our hearts the love we've been denying. The world cries out for a return to love, as we've all become people who are harder than we ca to be, and more tense than we can afford.
Based on the teachings of A Course In Miracles, a self-study program of spiritual psychotherapy which presents universal spiritual themes, A Return To Love is about the practical application of love. It is about the practice of love as a daily answer to the problems that confront us, whether our psychic pain is in the area of relationships, career, or health. Marianne Williamson examines the love that is a potent force, a source of miracles, the key to inner peace. Let us return to the world we knew as children, when we were still connected to our softness, our innocence, our spirit. It's actually the same world we see now, but informed by love, interpreted gently, with hope and faith and sense of wonder. This world is retrievable, because perception is a choice.
