A Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert on god, religion, inspiration, love, and life

I want to have a lasting experience with God. Sometimes I feel like I understand the divinity of this world, but then I loose it because I get distracted by my petty desires and fears.

I want to be with God all the time. But I don't want to be a monk, or totally give up worldly pleasures.

I guess what I want to learn is how to leave in this world and enjoy its delights, but also elevate myself to God.

Elizabeth Gilbert
