9780060585341: The Gift of Change: Spiritual Guidance for a Radically New Life

Marianne Williamson, author of the phenomenal million-copy bestseller A Return to Love, has written an honest and uplifting book, offering seven practical principles for guiding us through life's major changes.

Marianne Williamson delves deeply into the rule of change and transition in our lives in this inspirational book, reflecting on the paradoxes that inevitably pervade our experience as she helps us find our way. Williamson examines the paradox of what we gather on the path of life, as our most difficult times sometimes bring about the most wisdom. She then investigates our inherent resistance to change and our recklessness around it. Finally, she focuses at length on the paradox of existence – being firmly rooted yet flexible in our lives.

Providing seven practical principles to support us through the transitions and changes we experience in life, Williamson ensures that whatever change you are facing – whether it's a relationship ending, the loss of a loved one or embarking on a new career path – you can learn to stop resisting the change itself and move into the future gracefully. The Gift of Change also examines the roles of openness and letting go, grieving and forgiveness, and love and fear. Marianne Williamson delivers hope and healing as she brings us to a place where we can truly live in the freedom of love.

Review:

“In this elegant book Marianne Williamson shows us that activity without stillness is chaos and dynamism with stillness is creativity. Read this book and you will discover how you can dance with the luminous mystery of existence and co-create a new world with God.”–Deepak Chopra, author of Book of Secrets and Peace is the Way

“Marianne Williamson’s new book is incredibly important, as brilliant and fresh as Return to Love, yet written with the urgency demanded by our times. A truth teller, a seeker, a mother and a learned woman in this scary and strange new world, her voice is at once strong medicine for our woundedness, warmth, insistence, good humor, and a little light to see by.” — Anne Lamott, author of Traveling Mercies

“This book is indeed a gift. Marianne Williamson takes her readers seriously enough to ask serious attention of them and to offer them much in return.”—Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People
