Do you know this book? If not please give yourself a present, consider reading it!
The author Paulo Coelho, is from Brazil and uses words as if they are the dance of a lifetime. With each page of The Alchemist, the images he creates are long lasting and heart planting. I would even venture to say life affirming.
This tiny book is a travelogue of romantic places and ordinary people. One young man’s journey to his find his own treasure. Although it is indeed a fable, it feels to me the perfect metaphor for choices we make to find ways of truly living in our own light.
Amazon describes it as: “Combining magic, mysticism, wisdom and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, The Alchemist has become a modern classic, selling millions of copies around the world and transforming the lives of countless readers across generations”.
May I tell you l love this book? It really spoke to my heart, creating a quilt of wonderment and simple joy. I found myself using my highlighter while reading because I just wanted to savor the words and ideas!
As we all travel and navigate this lifetime of journey and grasping for understanding, it is the simple moments of knowing that our treasure is never far from us. We just need to open our eyes and truly see it.
I hope you pick up a copy of this book. I think you will love the journey!
