'The Alchemist' By Paulo Coelho

Absolute magic, a metaphor for our human existence & what we are capable of; if only we are willing to connect with our infinite possibility we will then be guided towards our destiny.

'I don't live in either my past or my future. I'm interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you'll be a happy man. You'll see that there is life in the desert, that there are stars in the heavens, and that tribesmen fight because they are part of the human race. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we're living right now.'

- Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho has written a wonderful story that is easy to read & is definitely not easy to put down! It is a book that makes you smile from the inside. That picks you up on a rainy day. That churns emotions within you evoking compassion. For love. For war. For dreams.

'I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you'

- Paulo Coelho

It is a journey of a shepherd doing everything in his power to follow his destiny whilst focusing whole heartedly on his ordinary life as a human therefore allowing you, as the reader, to easily relate & help you to indirectly question why it is that you were put on this earth? What is the destiny that you are here to fulfill? What can make you be the shepherd in your own life?

'Because people become fascinated with pictures and words, and wind up forgetting the Language of the World.'

- Paulo Coelho

If you fill like your world is running at 100 miles an hour or that you have lost your sense of direction then this is a beautiful read. It is a chance for you to reconnect with the earth, the little things & the simple pleasures in your life that allow you to love each & every day; whilst beginning to identify the 'omens' within your everyday that lead to the bigger picture - your purpose.

'We make a lot of detours, but we're always heading for the same destination.'

- Paulo Coelho
