I have to stop reading this book and watching the movie. Yet when I feel myself floating, I panic and run to Elizabeth Gilbert. While it aids to bring myself back, however slowly, it likewise creates a vacuum, a hollowness.
With all these quotes from the book (and movie)… I think what I’m saying is… I miss God, Allah, Krishna, Jehovah, The Source, The Tao, Universe, Love, Shakti… whatever names are out there, doesn’t really matter to me. What matters is I miss the Prescence of someone Higher, someone who’s Divinity transcends over my heart. I keep following my heart, trying to… but perhaps it’s not that strong (yet) to lead me.
When I practice or teach yoga, I feel Him. Sort of. And of late, I have been feeling joyful with my classes, and I know and feel that it is because of me, yet it is not. I don’t even want to understand because I am happy with even Him passing over my heart. Or maybe He is there/here and I only don’t know how to… … … open (??) myself more??
“You take whatever works from wherever you can find it, and you keep moving toward the light.”
“So the holy truth of the whole adventure here in India, is in one line: God dwells within you… … God dwells within me…as me.”
“Om Namah Shivaya, meaning,
I honor the divinity that resides within me.”
But what when I am not dwelling in me, within me…??
“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.”
It’s that way then.
