A soul mate

Last Saturday night I was hanging out with my friends and one of them was talking about the book "Eat, Pray, Love". I've read the book there we were discussing the book. How a woman can finally found herself back in the life she's been wanting all this time and of course that includes love. Have you read it? If you have, which part of the book do you like the most? I will surely choose the "Love" part. Why? Because it took place on my lovely country Indonesia. Liz went to Bali, one of the most beautiful islands in Indonesia, and found LOVE. I can't wait to see the movie. So, here I am looking for the quotes that we discussed that night. It's not weird at all that we both like the same quotes from the book. Here's the quote of Elizabeth Gilbert from one of her journey:
"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master..."
