Marianne Williamson Defines Spirituality

Also part of the November 13th Super Soul Sunday, Marianne Williamson defined spirituality, which I like very much:

the practice of spirituality is when you get very still and very humble. There are forces inside you, forces of fear and limitation and chaos and they live inside us saying you can’t do that. 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 am capable of being. We think we are not happy because of what we are not getting but really we are not happy because of what we are not giving. The most important thing is that we learn how to forgive each other, that we learn how to love each other, how to live in the spirit of blessing and not blame. What matters is when you are standing in front of a person, is your heart open or is your heart closed? Are you thinking a judgmental thought or are you trying to see the best in them? Are you showing the mercy towards other people that you would wish that they would show toward you? The spiritual path doesn’t mean always an easier path. But it means a choice, a choice that we are making to try our best to be as loving as we can be.
