With all that's been happening I've had many moments of overwhelm. I turned to a movie that speaks to me and inspires me---Eat Pray Love. The book and movie Eat Pray Love chronicles the beginning of Liz Gilbert's inner journey. Eat is finding her appetite for life again (including for food) so she travels to Italy. Pray is to connect deeply with God and Spirit within when she goes to India. Love brings her to Bali where she's confronted by how to live in balance while opening her heart to love and being love.
I watched the movie for the first time a few years ago, twice around the time of my separation with my husband, and just the other day. Each time I've seen it I've been in a different place in my life so different nuisances emerge. This time, now that we're divorcing, I was touched in a different way, a deeper way. The Physics of the Quest (click to view) hit home and my heart in a whole new way. It's on my computer's Bookmark tab so I can view it when I need to come back to my knowingness. It is the journey of my life.
For my birthday my friend Leslie gave me a poem that she said spoke of my journey and she wanted me to have a copy of it. I've included it below for your reading.
