Eat, Pray, Love: good quotes

“I want to have a lasting experience with god.  Sometimes I feel like I understand the divinity of this world, but then I lose it because I get distracted by my petty desires and fears.  I want to be with God all the time.  But I don’t want to be a monk, or totally give up worldly pleasures.  I guess what I want to learn is how to live in this world and enjoy its delights, but also devote myself to God.”  (Elizabeth Gilbert: Eat, Love, Pray)

“To find the balance you want, you must keep your feet grounded so firmly on the earth that it’s like you have four legs instead of two.  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.”  (Ketut the Medicine Man: Eat, Love, Pray)
