When you want something,
all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it.
This is a quote from Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist. The question is: Do we believe it or not? If we are here to learn, and we take the statement of Coelho’s as fact, we will go further and will achieve everything we desire. But on the other hand, if we are here to learn, it would be more valid to say that the universe puts along our path challenges to be overcome. This way we are to gain knowledge and spiritual awareness.
We all have our dreams. The sad thing is this: that many people don’t follow their dream–do not follow the precept “Do what you love; the money will follow.” (the book by Marsha Sinetar) In the minds of many, the money must come first–so they do a lot of things they do not love. That makes them angry and stressed out. Then because of their anger and stress, the world is a worse place than before.
Blessed be those who have the courage to face their challenges.
