When I first watched this movie – Eat, Pray, Love – some 6 years back, I simply couldn’t relate to it and dismissed it. The book was even worse and I couldn’t get past 4-5 pages. So that was that.
Cut to 2016, a lot of emotional upheavals later, I caught the tail end of this movie on one of the channels. What do you know? I could relate to it and suddenly I couldn’t wait to see it whole. So then I set out to do just that and it has become a sort of anthem kinda movie for me now. I found so many messages in this movie and could relate to such a lot of stuff, that I am amazed I hated it in the first place.
I have started seeing patterns in my day-to-day life which I have been trying to decipher. I have started to practice meditation on a daily basis and finding peace and balance in that time.
So it’s no wonder that when I read these lines today, they struck a chord with me – I just had to sit down and reflect on them:
“What you focus on, expands
What you resist, persists.”
It’s like I should set my daily intentions and focus my energies on making them happen. Issues which are not working, I need to give acceptance and let them go without kicking too much of a fuss. For why do things happen, is only revealed when the final picture emerges.
