Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. 
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. 
A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master...” 

 What can I say? I liked this book. Having read it I decided to learn Italian someday and to spend more time on yoga and meditation. It teaches us that every our thought has some weight in this world. Our prayers are heard, our goals will be reached if we try a little harder.

“To lose balance sometimes for love is part of living a balancedlife.” 

 This book is about a journey of one woman towards her happiness, towards God. And she found everything she needed. In fact, she even helps us all by writing this book alongside her journey.
“There’s a crack (or cracks) in everyone…that’s how the light of God gets in.” 

Would be interesting to read it for those chic lit lovers? Hm maybe, but more to no than yes. There are way too many spiritual inner monologues in it. But it would be interesting for those who are lost and want to be found. But in this case you find yourself not waiting for someone to come and take you by the hand. It is inspirational on so many levels but you need to let it touch your heart.
