Day 344 Thoughtful paragraph from Marianne Williamson

"At a certain point, it doesn't really matter so much how we got to be a certain way. Until we admit our character defects and take responsibility for the fact that regardless of how we got them, they are ours now, God has no power to heal them. We can talk to a therapist for hours about how our relationship with Mom or Dad made us develop a certain behavioral characteristic, but that of itself will not make it go away. Naming it, surrendering it to God, and asking God to remove it, that's the miracle of personal transformation. It won't go away in a moment, necessarily, but its days are numbered. The medicine is in your psychic bloodstream." Marianne Williamson
