Marianne Williamson is a bestselling writer, world-renowned instructor, and essentially the most vital non secular voices of our time. In Tears to Triumph, she argues that we—as a tradition and as individuals—have realized to prevent dealing with soreness. by way of doing so, we're neglecting the non secular paintings of healing.
Instead of permitting ourselves to embody our harm, we numb it, medicate it, push aside it, or in a different way divert our recognition in order that we by no means need to face it. In refusing to recognize our affliction, we really lengthen it and deny ourselves the chance for profound wisdom—ultimately restricting our own development and chance for enlightenment.

As Marianne makes transparent, actual therapeutic and transcendence can purely come once we ultimately face our discomfort and strive against with what it has to coach us. Written with hot compassion and profound knowledge, Tears to Triumph bargains us a strong means ahead during the discomfort, to a deeper wisdom of our emotions, our lives, and our actual selves.

Rather, it represents the most profound elucidation of how the mind operates and how it filters our experience. It recognizes the extraordinary depth of our most fundamental yearning—our yearning for love—and the extraordinary pain that we feel when we don’t find it. There is an epidemic of depression in our world today, and a myriad of options for how to treat it. Just as there are natural remedies for disease within the body, there are natural remedies for disease within the mind. And by a “natural remedy” for depression I do not mean herbs or homeopathic remedies; I mean the practical application of love and forgiveness as a medicine for the soul.
Since the thought system that dominates the world is one that repudiates love, it is a prison in which we are bound to suffer. The only way to escape our suffering is to rise above the thought system that creates it. The pain we experience while living in this world should not be denied, of course, but it can be transcended. Miracle-minded thinking does not suppress our emotions; rather, it brings them up so we can place them on a path to true healing. Healing occurs when we identify our painful feelings and then place them in His hands, praying that the thoughts which produced the feelings will be realigned with His.

While I wouldn’t say it sounded like she’d had anything near a wonderful childhood, she didn’t report having had any symptoms that seemed particularly outlandish.
