Book Description

Dec 6 2007
The need for change as we get older - an emotional pressure for one phase of our lives to transition into another - is a human phenomenon, neither male nor female. There simply comes a time in our lives - not fundamentally different from the way puberty separates childhood from adulthood - when it's time for one part of ourselves to die and for something new to be born.

The purpose of this book by best-selling author and lecturer Marianne Williamson is to psychologically and spiritually reframe this transition so that it leads to a wonderful sense of joy and awakening.

In our ability to rethink our lives lies our greatest power to change them. What we have called 'middle age' need not be seen as a turning point toward death. It can be viewed as a magical turning point toward life as we've never known it, if we allow ourselves the power of an independent imagination - thought-forms that don't flow in a perfunctory manner from ancient assumptions merely handed down to us, but rather flower into new archetypal images of a humanity just getting started at 45 or 50.

What we've learned by that time, from both our failures as well as our successes, tends to have humbled us into purity. When we were young, we had energy but we were clueless about what to do with it. Today, we have less energy, perhaps, but we have far more understanding of what each breath of life is for. And now at last, we have a destiny to fulfill - not a destiny of a life that's simply over, but rather a destiny of a life that is finally truly lived.

Midlife is not a crisis; it's a time of rebirth. It's not a time to accept your death; it's a time to accept your 'life' - and to finally, truly live it, as you and you alone know deep in your heart it was meant to be lived.

5.0 out of 5 stars Antidote to a Midlife Crises April 16 2008
Format:Hardcover
If you are in midlife and not wholly happy with your life, read this book. This book is meant to empower.

Marianne Williamson asks us: "How would we live were we not afraid of death? How would we live if we felt full permission from ourselves and others to give to life everything we've got?"

With those thoughts in mind, Williamson guides the reader to go after the life they want; to be proactive. Only when "we go for it" do we flourish.
Midlife is what you create. We are not too old to change, if anything, with age comes knowledge, Williamson counsels.

Williamson believes midlife is another stage of life and should be celebrated as such--not unlike the transition from childhood into teenager. She claims the bar or bat mitzvahs, the Jewish traditional rite of passage, is an ideal way to acknowledge the transition from childhood to adolescence, allowing the child to comes to terms with the change in life.

Likewise, we need to celebrate our transition into midlife. Williamson claims that if we don't, we risk a midlife crisis, most often manifested as depression in women.

She says, "Now is the time to burst forth into your greatness--a greatness you could never have achieved without going through exactly the things you've gone through."

It's our perception of middle age that counts --not the old stereotypes.
Midlife is like second chance. We learn who we are and know what we want. Midlife is the time to allow whatever it is into our lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Profound Message for This Day and Age April 7 2008
Format:Hardcover
There is one idea Marianne Williamson expresses in this book that I especially like. It's the idea that in this day and age we have added more years to our lives -- but those years are in the middle! What she means is that mid-life at this point in time is far more than just a transition from youth to old age. It has become a vibrant, powerful time that gives us the opportunity to leave our driven, desperate, ego-based lives behind, and truly heal ourselves -- and heal the world in the process. No matter what your age, Marianne's eloquence and passion will ignite a fire in your soul, filling you with a true desire to finally live your life the way it is supposed to be lived . . . with unconditional love, compassion, understanding, and forgiveness. I feel like I am living this book right now, and I highly recommend it.

It wasn't what I expected! I wanted more advice, not what I can get at church. It was more about finding yourself.
