Overview

What do your spiritual convictions have to do with traffic jams, job anxiety, reading the newspaper, or arguing with your spouse? Everything, according to Marianne Williamson. It is the way we live in our everyday world that determines the shape of who we are. So Buddhist or Muslim, Christian or Jew, it is the moment when our daughter doesn't make the basketball team, or our best friend lands our dream job, or our business instinct tells us to bury the guy across the boardroom table that tests and builds our living faith.

With an attitude of hope, a call to forgive, a celebration of miracles, and the promise of strength and grace, Williamson helps us find our sacred footing on ordinary ground.

No matter where we are or what we're doing, there is the opportunity to be happy, and to be holy. The large and small difficulties of our days challenge us to open our hearts and minds. And in this book of hours, Marianne Williamson teaches us to ride the currents that lurk in each of those moments of opening to a sea change of the soul.

I think that without it, we would not 'get it"! She has a remarkable way of 'putting' the truth into LIGHT! May she live a long life so we can learn more and more. God continue to brighten her heart with LOVE the greatest power in the Universe. Spelled G-O-D.

This is one of the rare good books that is truthful yet opens the readers eye in the opening pages. I benefited significantly and know many others will as well. An applicable book with solutions.

The truest path to peace is indeed grace and forgiveness. And in finding and creating the good in every day life experiences. Just plain being nice to people. Just plain dropping old grudges. Just plain losing the anger and replacing it with joy. Another book within the same genre as this book that I just have to recommend is called, I Talked To God And He Wants To Talk To You. I highly recommend you read this.

This book is an absolutely wonderful read. Gets you in touch with your real life every day situations and makes you see things in a different light. Gives you an entirely different perspective on life when you wake up each morning. I was an avid reader of Oprah's picks and she's giving this book for Christmas presents to all her friends. One of the best inspirational books I've ever read!

Everyday Grace is a book for every citizen in this country. No matter what your dogmatic beliefs are, Marianne brings it home to what really matters- LOVE. This book is a blessing to America in our current political and social climate. It is my hope that the wisdom shared in the book will help heal our society to truly be a beacon of hope unto the world.

Seeing the world from a spiritual perspective is a whole other world. This book uses the example of waiting in line. Instead of getting angry or discouraged we should see the other people in line as beautiful spiritual souls who need our prayers and blessings. It doesn't have to be the big things like tackling world issues all at once. It can be something as simple as giving the unhappy person at the checkout counter a smile. And if you do that the big things do get tackled. But this book isn't so much about tackling the world. In fact not at all. It's about tackling your personal world and the world of your neighbors on and everyday individual basis. In this lies inner peace and God. It's about gratitude for what you have and not dwelling on what you don't have.

Marianne does it again! She absolutely enlightens the soul and mind. In 'Everyday Grace,' Marianne brings us to an understanding that God lives in us, and we must accept Him as our light on our path through life. She reveals to us the truth of who we are. "Only the truth of who you are remains, to shine on everything. And that is your job, now and always: to shine and thus illumine the world." Marianne's words are magnificent and inspiring. After reading this book, you will know that grace is with us everyday. This is a must read!

This is such a beautiful book. For those who've read A Return to Love and Illuminata, it is a perfect combination of those two books. The material is fresh and new, but the writing still as inspiring as ever. What I really like about the book is that whenever I need a spiritual jolt, I can just pick it up and open it almost anywhere.

Inner peace is certainly something that today's busy, stressed out people today have trouble achieving. We have such a sense of powerlessness as we're buffeted about by one crisis after another. Crises are opportunities for change, I know, but peace and quiet is hard to settle into. I don't think our competitive society fosters much acceptance or affection for the strangers we meet every day. Changing our point of view really does change our inner reality. Whether we should regard ourselves as all-knowing divine beings with the power to change external reality is something I doubt the wisdom of-- a philosophy of universalism and New Age spiritualism. I guess religious or spiritual beliefs taken to extremes are like anything else: moderation is the key. What I worry about is people who believe that each person defines right and wrong for themselves, with traditional values going out the window as the individual does her 'own thing' to the detriment of the majority. I like the idea of women as 'goddesses' who are getting back in touch with their feminine natures, and perhaps away from the burdens of being feminist super women who burn out. It's good for those who are lacking in self-esteem, self-confidence, who are dominated by men. But let's not go to the other extreme and overestimate our importance. We need to be realistic about our inner powers, and beware of being too fascinated by the workings of our own minds and hearts. We might miss out on the reality that others are experiencing.

I'm glad to have been graced with this book. Today is a good day. And Tomorrow will be too if I live today to the fullest. Another book with equal insight is called I Talked God And He Wants To Talk To You. I highly recommend it.
