See God in every person, place, and thing, and all will be well in your world. – Louise Hay
where the teacher is
Had an interesting experience this afternoon. I was witnessing the graduation of a 12 week Dale Carnegie offering at work, and had the pleasure of hearing from the dynamic facilitator of the class. She ended up sharing her own touching story about how she found the truth about the following quote from the movie ‘Eat, Pray, Love’….
In the end, I’ve come to believe in something I call "The Physics of the Quest." A force in nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity. The rule of Quest Physics goes something like this: If you’re brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting, which can be anything from your house to bitter, old resentments, and set out on a truth-seeking journey, either externally or internally, and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher and if you are prepared, most of all, to face and forgive some very difficult realities about yourself, then the truth will not be withheld from you.
where god is
We’re always looking for ‘the’ answer to our quests, our problems and our yearnings. Well the message and the messengers abound! If we only look the answer comes through unexpected ways and means. It’s right around the corner, or is the next person we meet or even the next connection we make in our minds! Let’s look, the answer might be right in front of our figurative noses!
Daily Affirmation: Today daily events are my teacher!
Recommendation: Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda

Thanks Manu, I’m honored you liked the reflection. Thank you for for accepting me and our Dale Carnegie class as teachers. 🙂
i don’t really watch love story movies but i ended up watching it to learn how to get over w/ the hurt i have. The eat love pray of julia roberts movie taught me a lot of things and gave me strength to move on. I don’t know if you can relate w/ me but that’s the truth. At least it taught me something to live up to. Stop asking a lot of questions to God but instead thank Him for all the people I’ve encountered. At least I realized I should take it as a lesson for me all the things going on right now in my life. I’m afraid of love still but this wouldn’t stop me to learn more from people.
Each time I see the movie Eat, Pray, Love I find another piece of where I’ve been in my life. I connect to the feelings of that moment when I let go of someone, something. I detached from people and things. That which I held so tightly I now let go easily, with a breath, release, with love and light which is Jesus. Perhaps learning to love myself has made loving others easier. Learning to face my truths has made facing others kinder. Grateful for the lessons learned and humbled by being allowed to learn, see, and know more each day.
