Shelves: religion , spirituality Illuminata is a beautiful book of what I would call secular prayers by one of the most acclaimed spiritual writers of our time, Marianne Williamson. There is no mention of a prophet or religious lingo, just God and the contemplation to reach him with these words. There are prayers for everything you could imagine, healing, love, children, money, failure, achievement and work, daily prayers and renewal prayers. The prayers are as powerful as those of the three monotheistic traditions, yet they are bare and simple, applicable to anyone. She also offers her own commentary to spirituality, written as a preface to her prayers.

Today, America once again is in turmoil. A spiritual cancer of fear threatens to undo the progress we have achieved. Discord and hatred are dissolving our communal bonds and undermining the spirit of social responsibility—the duty we feel toward one another.
In this powerful spiritual manifesto, Marianne Williamson offers a tonic for this cultural malignancy. She urges us to imitate the heroes of our past and live out our deepest spiritual commitment: where some have sown hatred, let us now sow love. Williamson argues that we must do more than respond to external political issues.
We must address the deeper, internal causes that have led to this current dysfunction. We need a new, whole-person politics of love that stems not just from the head but from the heart, not just from intellectual understanding but from a genuine affection for one another.
By committing to love, we will make a meaningful contribution to the joyful, fierce and disruptive energies that are rising at this critical point in time.

There is a promise that was bequeathed to us, which is ours to hold and then pass on to our children. It is a sacred promise. We are part of the American river of destiny, running through time and carrying with it the extraordinary gift of one great idea: that there can be a land where all are free to be and to become their essential selves.
