love, life, and the pursuit of liberation

divine words

As I was reading this evening, I came across this beautiful gem.

From Eat, Pray, Love

I look at the Augusteum, and I think that perhaps my life has not actually been so chaotic, after all. It is merely this world that is chaotic, bring changes to us all that nobody could have anticipated. The Augusteum warns me not to get attached to any obsolete ideas about who I am, what I represent, whom I belong to, or what function I may once have intended to serve. Yesterday I might have been a glorious monument to somebody, true enough– but tomorrow i could be a fireworks depository. Even in the Eternal City, says the silent Augusteum, one must always be prepared for riotous and endless waves of transformation.

So much wisdom in those words that I needed to hear tonight. God, I hear you.
