Life with Authenticity

As I’ve explained many times in the past, I read a wide range of books and other matierials.  Recently I was reading a great book written by a woman who’s search for spiritual meaning centers around Hinduism.  The book is called Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.  This is a wildly entertaining book with a lot of life wisdom as well.  I love the writer’s “voice” — she’s hilarious!  I highly recommend it.  

In any case, she’s quoting from the Bhagavad Gita — an ancient Indian Yogic text, which says, It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection.

That line really struck me, especially lately.  I’m struggling with a number of issues including who I am and who I want to be.   I’ll share my journey with you after I process some of it myself — it’s just too raw right now.   Since I don’t have any wisdom on this topic, I thought I’d at least leave you with someone else’s wisdom!
