I saw Marianne speak at Alternatives in London a couple days ago and wanted to record something here. At this time when there is so much conflict and stress in the world it’s good to have other voices. She does not ignore the problems but talks of us needing to come together to find a new way to unite good actions and have a positive impact. Marianne is wise, confident, charismatic and caring. I am amazed at how she can speak of God and not sound religious but spiritual. In the Q&A that followed she showed great empathy to those asking difficult questions, wanting guidance on working through their painful experiences. Very moving.
This is not so much a summary of what was said but noting the aspects that resonated:
- We find God through and in each other
- We can value the differences and separateness of our embodied selves but would do well to recognise ourselves as spiritual beings also
- Our assignment is to be our authentic selves and take responsibility for our lives 100% of the time
- We may already know what we feel called to do in life so now it’s about taking action
Do any of these ideas resonate with you?
