The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is an absolutely beautiful story. It’s definitely one that I plan on rereading. There were times while reading The Alchemist that I felt the words were specifically meant for me. In the introduction, Paulo says, “If we have the courage to disinter dream, we are then faced by the second obstacle, love. We know what we want to do, but are afraid of hurting those around us by abandoning everything in order to pursue our dream. We do not realize that love is just a further impetus, not something that will prevent us going forward. We do not realize that those who genuinely wish us well want us to be happy and are prepared to accompany us on that journey.”
Something about this book resonated with me right down to my core and was so warm and comforting. Love, Love, Love it.
Do you have one of those books that resonated and touch the core of your soul? If so, please share.
