To realize one’s destiny and personal legend is our only obligation, and when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it – Paul Coelho The Alchemist – Harper Collins
If I ever need to be inspired and reminded of the meaning of life. I read the Alchemist.
Santiago a young shepherd boy sets out on a journey to find a treasure in the Pyramids of Egypt.
However, what he discovers along the way, is that the treasure and gold he is seeking outside himself are already within him and he finds this in the most unexpected ways.
Santiago discovered this wisdom when he learned to trust his heart and intuition. When he learned to read the inconspicuous signs he was given. And when he understood that his suffering and life lessons were all stepping stones to prepare and open him to receive his dream.
The more he did this the more he realized what he was seeking, was seeking and supporting him, every step of the way.
For us to become the alchemist and discover the gold within us, we must learn how to dissolve the heavy lead we are carrying. We must understand and feel all that arises within each day.
‘We banish the misaligned when we align with what we are called to be’ David Whyte
It is then we will find our treasure.
