I simply LOVE IT! .. All three together... The Book, The Movie, The Author!
A story never felt so real or as realistic as this one .. I know a lot may find it a depressing issue, but if anyone didn't benefit from such a book, he/she is definitely a hypocrite!
Then again, I don't want to be harsh .. Maybe, whoever doesn't relate to it, didn't have a real dilemma in his/her life, and we can only pray for that to be true ..
The fact that Elizabeth Gilbert tackles the issue of our "Passion" in life, personally means a great deal to me, and I think to everyone whose really in need of a real change in his/her life. She simply answered our only constant question, "Why do we exist?"
1- We EAT: Recalling the sense of TASTE, we have to search for the QUALITY, not the QUANTITY.
2- We PRAY: Realizing that FAITH is what really revives us, and not "The Secret." :D
3- We LOVE: Referring to the one and only feeling that manages to maintain our perseverance against all odds.
If you're open-minded enough to read through her lines, you'll definitely go somewhere magical ..
And, I can't help myself when I think that I could do this someday .. It's a huge gift to be perceptive, to make use and implement someone else's life lessons to make it happen as your own .. It takes a huge effort and whole amount of skills to be able to share what she presented to the world .. I can only hope that I would to have such focus and determination to pass what I have and positively transfer every beam of good energy inside my soul for whoever needs it .. God's willing :)
.. N.O.H.A ..
