Eat, Pray, Love

Il a un dicton populaire qui dit que ce n'est pas nous qui choisi les livres, mais plutôt les livres qui nous choisissent. Et bien j'ai été choisi fort (fort genre le coup de foudre) par le livre Eat, Pray, Love et je vie une histoire d'amour avec ce livre depuis. Son auteur est une réelle inspiration dans ma vie, je l'aime d'amour. Cette femme a eu le courage de faire ce que nous rêvons tous de faire un jour ou l'autre, laissé nos vies dernières pour aller se rencontrer.Elle a pris la décision de se découvrir à travers 3 cultures de 3 pays. L'Italie pour les Plaisirs  terrestres de la bonne bouffe, le vin, la bonne compagnie et la langue. L'Inde pour le côté dévotionnel, spirituel, méditation et Yoga. Et finalement en Indonésie pour l'équilibre des deux.
Chaque fois que je lis le livre ou que je regarde le film, il y a un ou des nouveaux éléments qui me parlent particulièrement. Je vais toujours chercher un élément profondément réconfortant dans ses réflexions et les magnifiques images. Je vous partage quelques-unes d'entre elles.

     


“I’m here. I love you. I don’t care if you need to stay up crying all night long, I will stay with you. There’s nothing you can ever do to lose my love. I will protect you until you die, and after your death I will still protect you. I am stronger than Depression and I am braver than Loneliness and nothing will ever exhaust me.” 
 Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love


“Americans. You work too hard, you get burned out. You come home and spend the whole weekend in your pajamas in front of the TV. “But you don’t know pleasure. You have to be told you’ve earned it. You see a commercial that says: ‘It’s Miller Time!’ And you say, That’s right, now I’m going to buy a six pack.And then drink the whole thing and wake up the next morning and you feel terrible.But an Italian doesn’t need to be told. He walks by a sign that says: You deserve a break today. And he says, Yes, I know. That’s why I’m planning on taking a break at noon to go over to your house and sleep…with your wife!We call it “dolce far niente”, the sweetness of doing nothing.”-Luca Spagetti

Eat Pray Love repose sur la personnalité attachante de Julia Roberts.<br />

“Then I went for a walk and ate some pistachio gelato. Which Italians consider a perfectly reasonable thing to be eating at 9:30 a.m. and frankly I could not agree with them more.”


"So the holy truth of the whole adventure here in India, is in one line: "God dwells within you...as you." God's not interested in watching a performance of how a spiritual person looks and behaves. The quiet girl who glides silently through the place with a gentle, ethereal smile...who is that person? It's Ingrid Bergman in "The Bells of St. Mary's" – not me. God dwells within me...as me."e.” 


“To find the balance you want, this is what you must become. You must keep your feet grounded so firmly on the earth that it's like you have 4 legs instead of 2. That way, you can stay in the world. But you must stop looking at the world through your head. You must look through your heart, instead. That way, you will know God.”
― Elizabeth GilbertEat, Pray, Love

“To lose balance sometimes for love is part of living a balanced
life.” 





I've come to believe that there exists in the universe something I call 'The Physics of The Quest' -- a force of nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity or momentum.  And the rule of Quest Physics maybe goes like this: 'If you are brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting (which can be anything from your house to your bitter old resentments) and set out on a truth-seeking journey (either externally or internally), and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue, and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher, and if you are prepared - most of all - to face (and forgive) some very difficult realities about yourself... then truth will not be withheld from you.'  Or so I've come to believe.  I can't help but believe it, given my experience."
