characters Eat Pray Love Elizabeth Gilbert à 6 characters Read & Download ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB à Elizabeth Gilbert S Gilbert took a radical step In order to give herself the time and space to find out who she really was and what she really wanted she got rid of her belongings uit her job and undertook a yearlong journey around the world all alone Eat Pray Love is the absorbing chronicle of that year Her aim was to visit three places where she could examine one aspect of her own nature set against the backdrop of a culture that has traditionally done that one thing very well In Rome she studied the art of pleasure learning to speak Italian and gaining the twenty three happiest pounds of her life India was for the art of devotion and. This was one of those books I will read over and over again All those cynics out there who criticize Gilbert for writing a too cutesy memoir that seems beyond belief and who claim that she is selfish for leaving her responsibility are clearly missing the point First she did not write the book to inspire you She wrote it as her own memoir you can agree or disagree with how she went about her enlightenment but you cannot judge her for how she found happiness It is her memoir not yours You can achieve enlightement by whatever means you want Second to call her irresponsible for leaving responsibilities behind is absurd She was in an unhappy marriage You cannot force yourself to be happy I applaud her for doing something that many people are afraid to do She had no children and so the responsibilities she neglected were minimal I also suspect that those of you who didn t enjoy the book could not relate to it You have never suffered a life changing tragedy You have never felt paralyzed by fear anger or disappointment You have never had to go through a healing process that seems endless You have never felt lost That s great for you but unfortunately that makes it hard for you to relate to this memoir Finally those of you who found her story too unbelievable have probably never felt the joy of traveling the world There is no better way to discover yourself than getting out of your comfort zone and immersing yourself in someone else s Traveling the world is not self indulgent If doing what we want to or enjoy doing is self indulgent then we are all guilty If you are enjoying an ice cream sundae meeting your friends for a night out or a good work out you are being self indulgent My guess is that those of you who didn t find the value in this book are unhappy with your own life Perhaps you should be a little self indulgent yourself

characters Eat Pray Love Elizabeth Gilbert à 6 characters Read & Download ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB à Elizabeth Gilbert With the help of a native guru and a surprisingly wise cowboy from Texas she embarked on four uninterrupted months of spiritual exploration In Bali she studied the art of balance between worldly enjoyment and divine transcendence She became the pupil of an elderly medicine man and also fell in love the best way unexpectedly An intensely articulate and moving memoir of self discovery Eat Pray Love is about what can happen when you claim responsibility for your own contentment and stop trying to live in imitation of society‚Äôs ideals It is certain to touch anyone who has ever woken up to the unrelenting need for change. I found this book unbelievably phoneyI hated this so much that I got up early this morning to finish it and gave my copy to the library and honestly I m not too proud of thatTo me it just felt so insincere that there s no chance I would have made it past the second chapter had it not been for book club obligationsI enjoyed her writing style but I absolutely could not warm to her at all To be fair I do think she would be an excellent travel writerThe section on India was agony to read I have met enough people freshly returned from Indian ashrams to know that they often seem a tad self absorbed and I also suspect that they really only get up at 3am so that they have even me time She didn t do much to alter my opinionHonestly this woman meditated longer harder and bluer than anyone else has past or present She won the meditation competition that no one was actually having Possibly it was not enlightenment that she found but simply that she finally became completely self absorbed Easy mistake to make

    EBOOK Eat Pray Love characters Eat Pray Love Shallow self indulgent and mired in the sort of liberal American obsession with oriental exoticism that is uniuely offensive because it is treated as enobling by its purveyors She treats the rest of the world as though it exists for the consumption of jaded rich white Americans and this book is a monument to that sort of arrogance and ignorance
