"As an expression of divine perfection, the universe is both self-organizing and self-correcting. To whatever extent your mind is aligned with love, you will receive divine compensation for any lack in your material existence."
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
The recent economic downturn had a major impact on millions of Americans in pragmatic terms--jobs, homes, investments, retirement--but it also affected us on a deeper level, leaving many anxious about their day-to-day lives and future prospects. In the wake of hardship and struggle often comes a new path, and according to Marianne Williamson, even miracles. In her new book, the #1 New York Times bestselling author provides a unique perspective on our financial condition through the lens of A Course in Miracles, and reveals a path to abundance by way of a powerful spiritual principle called the Law of Divine Compensation.
In response to the overwhelming requests for her wisdom on the subject of our financial lives, Marianne Williamson offers THE LAW OF DIVINE COMPENSATION: On Work, Money, and Miracles (HarperOne; November 27, 2012; Hardcover). A powerful spiritual principle, the Law of Divine Compensation says that when we lack faith in our higher selves and focus on the negative, we create and perpetuate our own negative circumstances; conversely, when we have faith in possibility and all that can go right in our lives, we open ourselves to receive the miracles the universe is holding for us.
While millions have suffered heartbreaking and seemingly intractable financial woes, every one of us possesses the power to believe that something else is possible, that our destinies can change, that a miracle can happen. And then it does. This simple shift in how we think can have a monumental effect on what happens next. The key is believing in alternative possibilities, which allows new realities to emerge and materialize, and recognizing that these miracles could not and would not have occurred had we not believed in them. This is THE LAW OF DIVINE COMPENSATION, the power of our thoughts to attract --or deflect -- miraculous breakthroughs in our lives.
For many, it is at the precise moment we realize that our current way of thinking isn’t working when we open our minds to consider that a new reality is possible. Finance is just one of many areas where an increasingly obsolete, materially-based worldview is proving inadequate to the challenges of the times in which we live, and more people are finding practical wisdom in spiritual understanding. Marianne Williamson writes:
“In a material sense, your situation might indeed be bleak. You might have been given a raw deal, or been betrayed by others. Despite these circumstances, all that matters is how you perceive what has transpired and what you think now: Are you lingering in the past or are you allowing for a miracle in the present? Are you blaming yourself and others or blessing yourself and others? Are you clinging to your faith in the reality of the disaster or opening your mind to the possibility of a miracle? Realign your thoughts with the thoughts of God, and in any given instant, the universe is ready to start over.”
THE LAW OF DIVINE COMPENSATION is not about hoping, dreaming, or wishing we’d win the lottery; rather it is about faith as a mental and emotional muscle we must exercise in order to benefit from. In our every thought, we either demonstrate faith in God and what can go right or doubt in ourselves and what can go wrong. Marianne Williamson demonstrates how to shift our focus to believe in what is possible, in what is a force of good in our lives, and to have the courage to realize all that the universe holds for us. Marianne Williamson writes: “The Law of Divine Compensation gives us the assurance that the universe will simply create a new route. What is lacking shall become abundant again, and what is wounded shall be healed.”
