I want to have a lasting experience with God. Sometimes I feel like I understand the divinity of this world, but then I loose it because I get distracted by my petty desires and fears.
I want to be with God all the time. But I don’t want to be a monk, or totally give up worldly pleasures.
I guess what I want to learn is how to live in this world and enjoy its delights, but also elevate myself to God.
~~ Elizabeth Gilbert
