“No matter what he does, every person on earth plays a central role in the history of the world. And normally he doesn’t know it.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
I have always loved ‘The Alchemist’.
When I have felt lost or confused in life, I often read this book and it always helps me remember the magical and meaningful signs around me that lead me to the next step, and the intricate path of my personal legend.
Whether I am guiding others or myself in life, I have found a formula that can transform our suffering into freedom.
The ingredients are:
There will always be suffering in life and once we accept this, we can begin to create a formula to work with it rather than against it.
“You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it’s better to listen to what it has to say.”

Love this book, too, Karen. I appreciate your formula. It all makes sense and is a wonderful list to keep close by for those times when we forget….who we are. It seems difficult to remember at times, rather than falling back into what the world tells us we should be. Surrender and patience…so important and among my greatest challenges as well.
We all have these thoughts and feelings and our daily practice is simply to pull us back to the truth, time and time again. Thank you for being here Carrie. 🧡🌈🌿

That first quote always gets me. It’s so beautiful and if everyone felt it, we’d lose a lot less people to suicide each day.
Yes and if we could all learn to still the overwhelming thoughts and beliefs of the mind, we would discover this quote was true. 🧡
