LTI Recommends: Eat, Pray, Love

“You were given life; it is your duty (and also your entitlement as a human being) to find something beautiful within life, no matter how slight.”
~ Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love)

I recently finished reading ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ by Elizabeth Gilbert. I know there are numerous reviews out there on this book (the book only remained on the New York Times Best Seller list for 158 weeks), but I thought I would share with you my thoughts on it. Most simply, I would have to say it was one of the best books I have read. Elizabeth Gilbert, in this creation of genius, was so easy to read and relate to that I was able to finish this book in just a couple weeks (I’m a slow reader, and don’t get oodles of time to read, so that’s a good pace). It was funny, encouraging, and inspiring. I’m not sure how the male readers feel (so please weigh in if you are reading), but as a woman I loved how it showed the journey of one woman who was able to discover who she was by realizing who she didn’t want to be. It’s a story of love, in

Your Stance: Do Soul Mates Really Exist?

I received a really good article the other day from Bliss Tree (another blog) called “The Great Soulmate Debate”. I haven’t posted any writings on relationships yet, so when this article came to me I thought why not start with one of the more controversial theories of love.

The idea of a soul mate is one that is much debated. The “Hollywood” definition seems to be that there is only one person on this earth that will match you perfectly, where love and relationships are glorified into stories of great passion, infatuation, and excitement. But is that real? According to the Encarta Dictionary, the definition of a soul mate is “somebody with whom somebody else naturally shares deep feelings and attitudes.” Not exactly the same thing. In perusing the thesaurus I found something even more interesting in that the synonyms for soul mate included such words as friend, pal, companion, partner, chum. Those aren’t exactly the most passionate words out there, but are they more realistic?

You can read the whole Bliss Tree article here, but the main point this author shares is that soul mates do not exist. In fact, the author goes as far

Where is your faith?

Faith is defined in two ways -

1) Faith is belief that is not based on proof

Most people when they hear the word ‘faith’ automatically think of religion or God or spirituality. Having faith that a higher power exists in the world that no one on earth can see. There is no physical proof of this existence (although those who have this faith would argue that everything living thing you see is proof enough). Unfortunately, this faith seems to either bring people together or drive people apart. I believe Eckhart Tolle states it best when discussing the idea of spiritual faith:

“Religion can be an open door or a closed door. A closed door occurs when one believes there is only one way / one God for 6 billion people on earth. An open door occurs when one allows for others to believe in their own God, which then promotes harmonious spirituality among all people.”

Whether you have faith in a higher power or not, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you allow others to have faith in what they believe to be true without judgment.

2) Faith is confidence or trust in a person

Faith is love, which is based on
