A week to figure it out

"Sweet Song"

What am I to do
Someone here is really not happy
Put myself on a line
It seems I never got through to you
So I wean myself off slowly

I'm a darkened soul
My streets all pop music and gold
Our lives are on TV
You switch off and try to sleep
People get so lonely

I believe I believe I believe
Everything's out to sea
I believe I believe I believe I believe
That is the way it should be
I hope you feel the same

Everyone is dying
Stop crying now here comes the sun
I didn't mean to hurt you no no no
It takes time to see what you have done
So I wean myself off slowly

I believe I believe I believe
Love is the only one
I deceive I deceive I deceive I deceive
Cos' I'm not that strong
Hope you feel the same

And now it seems that we're falling apart
But I hope I see the good in you come back again
I just believed in you

Let Yourself Go...

"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’s 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 met, because they tear you down 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 they leave. And thank God for it. Your problem is, you just can’t let this one go. it’s over Groceries. His purpose was to shake you up, drive you out of your relationship that you needed to leave, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light could get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you had to transform your life, than introduce you to your spiritual master and beat it. That was his job, and he did great, but now it’s over."
“But I love him”
“So love him”
“But I miss him“
” So miss him, Send him some love and light every time you think about him, and then drop it."

*Potongan ini diambil dari novel "Eat, Pray, Love"-nya Elizabeth Gilbert

Waktu pertama kali saya baca bukunya, sekitar tahun 2007, buku ini seperti holy bible untuk sebuah pembenaran dari pengalaman yang sedang berlangsung. Pada halaman berapapun saya buka buku itu, seolah ada jawaban dari pertanyaan yang sedang saya ajukan. Bedanya, saya nggak perlu ke India untuk menemukan Tuhan, seperti manusia post-mod pada umumnya. hehehe Mungkin saya membaca buku ini pada saat yang tepat. Kutipan di atas adalah best line menurut saya. Sayangnya kutipan ini cuma diambil satu kalimat aja di versi filmnya. Saya sempat merekomendasikan novel ini ke beberapa teman yang senasib dan mereka ketularan sindrom pasca baca novel ini. Ada beberapa orang yang bilang novelnya klise, tapi tunggu... bukankah hidup ini memang klise ya? hehehehe

Komentar untuk filmnya? Yah, lumayan lah sebagai bahan promosi gratis pariwisata Indonesia. :) Oh ya! James Franco itu pas jadi David dan Javier Bardem emang Felipe banget.

What's your word?
