Elizabeth Gilbert- "Embrace the glorious mess that you are."

And I felt motivated to write an explanation because I feel that she had essentially summed up what all spirituality points to. 
(Please note- this is my take on it and it may or may not be what she meant.) 

If what she says happens for you - if you can "Embrace the glorious mess that you are"- almost every thing that is troubling you now will simply loose it's bite- guaranteed! 

If you can stop looking at your life from and observer's point of view - judging, blaming , editing and simply...just ...simply fall into it... just like you sink into a BIG bean bag! 

Because at the end of the day , what gets us is not the pokes from life , but our discomfort with ourselves. 
Accept it, be it, love it. 
It may not be perfect. 
And that's perfect too! 
Because 'It' will always be a 'glorious mess' - life is work in progress! 

So there cannot be a finish line as long as you live. 
There cannot be a straight line. 
Actually, here can't be any line. 

What is , is. 
It simply is. 
Be OK with that and the rest is peace.
