Always Looking For It

Elizabeth Gilbert’s  description of getting  “there” from Eat, Pray, Love:

“So now I have found out. And I don’t want to say that what I experienced that Thursday afternoon in India was indescribable, even though it was. I’ll try to explain anyway. Simply put, I got pulled through the wormhole of the Absolute, and in that rush I suddenly understood the workingsof the universe completely. I left my body, I left the room, I left the planet, I stepped through time and I entered the void. I was inside the void and I also was the void and I was looking at the void, all at the same time. The void was a limitless place of peace and wisdom. The void was conscious and it was intelligent.The void was God, which means i was inside God. But not in a gross physical was — not like Liz Gilbert was stuck inside a chunk of God’s thigh muscle. I was just part of God. In addition to being God, I was both a tiny piece of the universe and exactly the same size as the universe.(“All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop,” wrote the sage Kabir — and i can personally attest now that this is true.)”

Cool.
