Being in Light by Marianne Williamson

I really enjoyed this audiobook. I was able to listen to Marianne at the Health Club or while cooking/cleaning. It was a perfect audiobook because her ideas were clear and true and it didn't matter if I forgot where I left off -- all of it contained valuable insights that didn't have to be understood by what came before. So I was always starting fresh - not having to remember where it left off. Marianne is a dynamic and sincere seeker and it comes through clearly in her audio....

Excellent content let down by poor sound quality

Would you listen to Being in Light again? Why?

I will definitely be listening again despite the appalling old tape cassette sound quality. The content is practical, easy to relate to and Marianne's delivery is very personable and without monotonousness, preachiness nor dryness. The feminine touch brings a deeper and more empathetic connection to the material which I, as a male, appreciate tenfold over male speakers. Marianne brings an emotionally relatable connection to the course content. Her reflections upon the manner in which the course has its place in every day perception brings the course down to the level at which I feel it has the greatest potential to change minds and open hearts.

Any additional comments?

The sound quality of this recording is the cause of 2 stars for overall audiobook presentation. The recording here is intermittently of degraded clarity, and the recording is obviously provided 'as is' from an old tape cassette source. The change in sound quality is apparent when the tape sides are changed (roughly every 40 minutes) and the sound is considerably muffled for the whole side. <br/><br/>Listening whilst driving I had to set Treble to maximum, Bass to minimum and turn up the volume yet it was still difficult to understand what Marianne was saying. Many passages I couldn't understand at all.<br/><br/>The fact that at times you will receive a less than perfected audio quality product from Audible.com has at such incidents caused me to look elsewhere for a higher sound quality version, and I have found higher quality on other audiobook sites.<br/><br/>Still, this in no way stops me from encouraging that people purchase this audiobook. Marianne's approach, understanding and love for the Course In Miracles material is simply too valuable to miss.

Create peace in your life, easily!

If you could sum up Being in Light in three words, what would they be?

Clear, easy, soulmedicine.

What other book might you compare Being in Light to and why?

Return to Love. Similar in concepts. Enlightening, real for most people and the challenges we all face.

Which character – as performed by Marianne Williamson – was your favorite?

Herself

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No... You need to have time to give your full attention and focus. Baby steps for big, long lasting change and spiritual growth.

Any additional comments?

Marianne Williamson is for everyone! Those who may be wondering about spiritual awakening, inner peace and problem solving; and those who have been "on their path" for some time. She is real. Her messages are real. I recommend this book.

Excellent

Never dull. This is a very practical hands on spiritual summary of the Course in Miracles, a really amazing psychological review of Christian spiritual principles. When you listen to it, you know it's good, and right and works.

Medicine!

I love Marianne Williamson. I have been waiting for something that pertained exactly to what I have been going through lately. This hit the spot. I learned a long time ago that even though we are all individuals that on another level we are not so different that whatever it is that we are going through there is someone somewhere , even if we need to look at the stories of masters who are no longer bound by earths Karmas. I believed that but as usual the idea kept trying to pop up that my current challenges for growth might never be addressed explicitly and directly. Let me tell you what a joy it is to find this Lille book that in its entirety did all of that. Thank you Marianne what a marvelous teacher and roll model. I especially recommend her because it is evident that she is not into ego or preaching in what she says. Only a true leader and speaker of the true truth can come across letting everyone know that we are no one better than another. That takes the true energy of heartfelt love. Because her teachings radiate that for all very purely there is true healing for anyone who truly is looking. If it is something that you can't find specifically in this book I urge you to hear some of the other books which address many aspects of daily life and the struggles of humanity. This is a kind person. To me just that exceeds the 5 stars. It is the demonstration beyond the intellectual concepts.
