Laura Dern is Enlightened.
Meet Amy Jellicoe (Laura Dern). In case you missed out on Season One, Amy is the neurotic protagonist in HBO’s hit show, “Enlightened.” After a humiliating, public mental breakdown at work, Amy decides to enter treatment. She reemerges as a spiritually fit version of her former self with a new perspective on life. However, her colleagues at her office, Abbadon, are less then amused with Amy’s paradigm shift. Which brings us to Season Two, premiering in January 2013. HBO has just released a preview trailer for the second season. But while we’re still waiting for the winter premiere, here are some of the most insightful quotes by Amy on her path to self-discovery…
“I’m speaking with my true voice now, without bitterness or fear. And I’m here to tell you, you can walk out of hell and into the light, you can wake up to your higher self, and when you do the world is suddenly full of possibility of wonder and deep connection. You can be patient, and you can be kind, and you can be wise and almost whole. You don’t have to run away from life your whole life. You can really live. You can change and you can be an agent of change”
More great quotes from Amy.
“I’ve lived in a world full of not-good-enough mothers. Imperfect, bad mothers. But the mother is a child, too. She is a child. I will stop waiting for you to be the perfect mother. I will be patient with you. I will be tender. I will be the mother I wanted you to be.
““Sometimes I think about someone else’s life. I Imagine all the love they do not have, I see the passion that is missing, the friends they don’t know, and the awful pressures that crush them. In those moments, I realize how much I have and how much I have to give”
“Everything can be transformed. Every single thing. Goodness exists. It is all around. It’s just sleeping. It can be wakened. If Levi can change anything is possible. I will not be afraid, I will be bolder. I will go straight to the top and breathe light into the darkest hearts. “ —Amy Jellicoe
