In a January 2014 interview, published in the Toronto Star newspaper, Celine shared her views on life and spirituality.
“You go through so many things in life” […] “You lose people, you give birth to children, you see so many million things. You make choices. You learn to say no. You purify yourself, you look for spirituality, for emotional balance.”
“It’s important for people to have something they can touch and believe in. I say that to believe in yourself is to believe in God. For me, God is life itself, the birds, the air, the sunrise and the sunset, the children. Yes, that is where I find God.”
How do you find balance in your life? Do you have a spiritual side?
