Spiritual teacher, best-selling author, and congressional candidate, Marianne Williamson, drew hundreds of New Yorkers interested in her spiritual political conversation at the East Village Middle Collegiate Church this week.

Williamson’s lecture focused on “making love a global force”—not just something you share more privately with your significant other, besties, and family—as a transformation tool.

And if you don’t quite know what that means, she shared one really powerful step you can take right now to help create more love in the world.

Create a (small) daily spiritual practice. Personal and social transformation go hand in hand, and daily prayer and meditation connects us to the light on a darkened planet, says Williamson. We take a shower in the morning to wash off the dirt from the day before, but when we don’t wash the stress of the world off with a daily spiritual practice, we take it with us into our day, and then we wonder why we get depressed or overwhelmed and turn to self-destructive choices, she explains. (Oh, right.)

How to: Sit for five minutes in the morning with the intention and willingness of connecting with your inner source of light, so you can bring that light out into your jobs, your communities, and beyond, she says. For Williamson, “every thought we think is an extension of love or a projection of fear.” And this daily practice changes thoughts toward love, which has a powerful ripple effect when you act in the world. —Jennifer Kass
