Its been a full week since I finished reading, Eat, Pray, Love. I had not been familiar with the book until my friend Courtney suggested we go see the movie. Then I found out it was a book, and when I happened to run into her in the library and she told me I could find it in the biography section, I figured I would read it first.
The reason I have waited to blog about the book is because I wanted to be sure that I felt the same way about the book after I processed it. While reading the book I was enthralled! I wanted to jump inside the pages and yell "me too, me too!". I wanted to underline passages and mark additional comments in the margins, but it was a library book after all. So I went on Amazon and bought myself a copy! I think this clearly puts me in the nerdy category but hey, that's okay!
I am not a religious person, but I do consider myself a spiritual being. What I believe in depends on the day and my mood, but the underlying moral comes back to myself, and being my own guiding force. This book really got me to thinking about how does one go about finding God? I can't just pack up and spend three months in any one place, heck, I can't pack up and spend three days! Does the journey have to involve the travel or can I do so on my own, in my own world? I believe I could but truly understand that by removing myself from my daily life and responsibilities I would be able to focus just on myself. I just don't see that happening anytime soon.
So I must be patient, and understand that I will find God, when I am ready to.
Tonight we are going to see the movie, I hope its 1/8th as good as the book. It also helps that Julia Roberts is the star and I absolutely adore her!!!
