The Quote That Gives Gwyneth Paltrow Spiritual Sustenance

How do you fortify your spirit amid life's many challenges?

In recent years, actress Gwyneth Paltrow has faced her fair share of personal hurdles, including a highly publicized split with Coldplay front man Chris Martin. During a Q&A at Pearl xChange—a daylong women's empowerment conference founded by Nicole Richie, who also served as host for the event—the 43-year-old Oscar® winner outlined the things that bring her spiritual sustenance when she's in need of guidance.

"I meditate, and I believe in God," Gwyneth said. "I believe in God, and I believe that there is a reason that this is all happening, and if I can stay present to that divine energy, I can really cope with anything. It's only when my humanity takes over that I fall apart, you know, which happens and, of course, will always happen."

Gwyneth said she also frequently reflects on a quote from the poet Rainer Maria Rilke: "Believe me: life is in the right, always."

In the video above, Gwyneth explains what these words mean to her and how she conceives of God.
