Eat, Pray, Love

“…if you sit down with the pure intention to meditate, whatever happens next is none of your business. So why are you judging your experience?”

 

“Just as there exists in writing a literal truth and a poetic truth, there also exists in a human being a literal anatomy and a poetic anatomy. One you can see; one you cannot.  One is made of bones, teeth and flesh; the other is made of energy and memory and faith. But they are both equally true.”

 

“…the rules of transcendence insist that you will not advance even one inch closer to divinity as long as you cling to even one last seductive thread of blame. As smoking is to the lungs, so is resentment to the soul; even one puff of it is bad for you…”

    Oh i loved this book.
    Got it twice as a christmas gift, because i said too many times how glad i would have been with this book.
    And it was true… i really, really loved it.
    Put on one kilo just by reading the italian part…yummy.
    But got very sad and homesick by reading the indian part…it touched me so deep.
    and then i got so happy with the last part…
    A lot of spiritual women will recognise or remember their own steps by reading Elisabeth Gilbert.
    Did you like it?Did it move you too?
