Marianne Williamson

Spiritual author and lecturer Marianne Williamson says spirituality wakens when you become still and humble. "There are forces inside you—forces of fear and limitation and chaos—and they live inside us saying, 'You can't do that,'" she says. "Spirituality is where you lay claim to a ground of being within yourself where you say, 'I want to be that. I really do. I want to be that person that I'm capable of being.'"

Marianne says people aren't happy because of what they aren't giving. "The most important thing is that we learn how to forgive each other and that we learn how to love each other. How to live in the spirit of blessing and not blame," Marianne says. "The spiritual path doesn't mean always an easier path, but it means a choice. A choice that we're making to try our best to be as loving as we can be."
