From Paulo Coelho’s book, The Alchemist
4 life obstacles:
- Being told from childhood everything we want to do is impossible
- Being afraid of hurting those we love if we do what we are meant to do
- Defeats on our path
- Allowing mistakes to keep us from reaching our goal even when we are just a step away
Traveling is good because you make new friends. Because you do not spend all your time with them, your new friends do not want you to change for them.
Your personal legend is who you are and what you want to do. It is your mission on earth. “When you want something, all the universe conspires to help you achieve it.” No heart has ever suffered when in search of dreams because every second of the search is an encounter with God and eternity.
Hunches or intuition is the sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life where the histories of all people are connected.
Love never keeps one from pursing his personal legend. If a person abandons the pursuit for love, it wasn’t true love. If what you found was only a moment of light, the explosion of a star, you will find nothing upon your return.
Advice: Eat when it’s time to eat and move along when it is time to move along.
Any of this (from one of my favorite books) make you think?
