December 10, 2010

I'm watching "Eat Pray Love". I've heard mixed reviews  - some hate, some love. But I guess that is the truth with most things in this world. Julia Roberts' cackle annoys some, her mouth is too big...blah. blah. bliggity. blah. I for one love any movie that has James Franco in it, especially if he cries. Have I ever told you I love when  a boy cries? I think it shows strength, maturity and confidence with one's self. In every movie or book for that matter, certain parts always shine a bit brighter. There are some powerful words spoken in this movie. I'm proud to say that each night I pray before I close my eyes to go to sleep. For my family, for Adam, for Adam's family, for my friends, for myself. Health. Happiness. Fulfillment. We cultivate our lives, our careers and our relationships in hope of finding 'the true meaning of life'. We're always on a journey to find ourselves. We just need to open our hearts, open our minds and accept how lucky we are.


 "Do not look at the world through your head; look at it through your heart."

"But you don't know pleasure. You have to be told you've earned it. You see a commercial that says: 'It's Miller Time!' And you say, That's right, now I'm going to buy a six pack. And then drink the whole thing and wake up the next morning and you feel terrible. But an Italian doesn't need to be told. He walks by a sign that says: You deserve a break today. And he says, Yes, I know. That's why I'm planning on taking a break at noon to go over to your house and sleep...with your wife!"

"A friend took me to the most amazing place the other day. It's called the Augusteum. Octavian Augustus built it to house his remains. When the barbarians came they trashed it a long with everything else. The great Augustus, Rome's first true great emperor. How could he have imagined that Rome, the whole world as far as he was concerned, would be in ruins. It's one of the quietest, loneliest places in Rome. The city has grown up around it over the centuries. It feels like a precious wound, a heartbreak you won't let go of because it hurts too good. We all want things to stay the same. Settle for living in misery because we're afraid of change, of things crumbling to ruins. Then I looked at around to this place, at the chaos it has endured - the way it has been adapted, burned, pillaged and found a way to build itself back up again. And I was reassured, maybe my life hasn't been so chaotic, it's just the world that is, and the real trap is getting attached to any of it. Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation."

"You're going to have to learn to select your thoughts the same way you select your clothes every day. Now that's a power that you can cultivate. You want to come here and you want to control your life so bad work on the mind, and I don't think you should be trying to control a thing because if you can't master your thoughts you are in trouble forever."
