    The content of this speech reflects an inward struggle I've had for while. WIth devotion (good) comes clarity. But will too much devotion eliminate joy in our lives? Author, Elizabeth Gilbert set out to reconcile these two in her book "Eat, Pray, Love". She lived in Italy to seek Pleasure and then to India to understand and create Devotion. And then she journeyed to Bali to reconcile the two. Their culture has a good grasp on how to balance our outer and inward needs. Wouldn't it be great if we could find this harmony right here at home?
