Williamson, Marianne Marianne Williamson's most famous passage has some troubling implications. It suggests that we should stop trying to improve the world by changing individuals, and instead change individuals by changing the world.
That if we try to "save" people by taking them out of their environment and teaching them new behavior, we're wasting our time because they won't learn new behaviors; that instead we should just change the environment to be more rewarding so that they will want to learn new behaviors.
This idea has been called "behavioral modification" or "environmental manipulation".
It was written by Williamson, a self-help author and lecturer who became known for her work with celebrities including Russell Simmons and Michael Jackson.
Here is how she describes herself in her book A Return to Love: "I am a spiritual teacher named after an angel who was born in America and raised in England between 1945 and 1950. My father was an accountant and my mother was an editor. I have two brothers and one sister. I love books and music, dancing and poetry."
