9780062205445: Tears to Triumph: The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment

The internationally recognized teacher, speaker, and New York Times bestselling author of A Return to Love argues that our desire to avoid pain is actually detrimental to our lives, disconnecting us from our deepest emotions and preventing true healing and spiritual transcendence.

Marianne Williamson is a bestselling author, world-renowned teacher, and one of the most important spiritual voices of our time. In Tears to Triumph, she argues that we—as a culture and as individuals—have learned to avoid facing pain. By doing so, we are neglecting the spiritual work of healing.

Instead of allowing ourselves to embrace our hurt, we numb it, medicate it, dismiss it, or otherwise divert our attention so that we never have to face it. In refusing to acknowledge our suffering, we actually prolong it and deny ourselves the opportunity for profound wisdom—ultimately limiting our personal growth and opportunity for enlightenment. Frozen by denial, we are left standing in the breech. Whole industries profit from this immobility, and while they have grown rich, we have become spiritually poorer.

As Marianne makes clear, true healing and transcendence can only come when we finally face our pain and wrestle with what it has to teach us. Written with warm compassion and profound wisdom, Tears to Triumph offers us a powerful way forward through the pain, to a deeper awareness of our feelings, our lives, and our true selves.

From the Back Cover:

In each and every one of our lives, we will experience suffering. This is not a new problem. It is ageless.

Bestselling author, speaker, and activist Marianne Williamson helps us rediscover religious principles for dealing with and transcending our suffering. Many people today experience the emotional pain of depression, relational trauma, and grief without the knowledge of how to deal with them and find healing. As a culture and as individuals, we have neglected the spiritual work of facing and moving through our pain to find true healing. Instead, we numb our pain, medicate it, or deny it. As Williamson explains, in avoiding our pain, we avoid our growth. She offers an opportunity to transform our pain through spiritual healing. By turning to the wisdom of ancient spiritual teachers such as the Buddha, Moses, and Jesus, we can redirect our suffering so it becomes an opportunity for healing and enlightenment.

Miracles begin when we start the healing process of listening to what our pain has to teach us. Only in this way can we move from tears to triumph and become deeper, happier, and wiser as a result.
