She also offers her own commentary to spirituality, written as a preface to her prayers. Meditation is just as important to her as prayer. Our brains hence emit different waves as we receive information more deeply than we do during normal waking consciousness.

It is a deep and profound silence, in which we allow ourselves to be still and know Him. In that silence, we are changed. During meditation, she says, we can speak soul to soul and hear the response.

Where we experience conflict, let us find the soul of the other in silence, in prayer. May 20, Helynne rated it really liked it.

Williamson’s overall premise is that life is all about love, and that a life without heart is a life without life force or chi, as the Chinese call it. She explains her choice of the book’s title in Chapter 2: It lifts us above the lies of the world by helping us to detach from them.
