Like Water For Chocolate



“If a strong emotion lights all the matches that we carry inside ourselves, it creates a brightness that shines far beyond our normal vision, and then a splendid tunnel appears.
That shows us the way that we forgot when we were born and calls us to recover our lost divine origin. The soul longs to return to the place it came from, leaving the body lifeless…”
(From Like Water For Chocolate, Laura Esquivel)
