Quote of the Week

"I think you have every right to cherry-pick when it comes to moving your spirit and finding peace in God. I think you are free to search for any metaphor whatsoever which will take you across the worldly divide whenever you need to be transported and comforted. It's nothing to be embarrassed about. It's the history of mankind's search for holiness. If humanity had never evolved in its exploration of the divine, a lot of us would still be worshiping golden Egyptian statues of cats. And this evolution of religious thinking does involve a fair bit of cherry-picking. You take whatever works for you from wherever you can find it, and you keep moving toward the light."

~Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

You take whatever works for you, from wherever you can find it.
