Passage from Paulo Coelho’s “The Alchemist”
Because it’s beautiful…
It’s what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their destiny is. At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible. They are not afraid to dream, and to yearn for everything they would like to see happen in their lives. But, as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to realize their destiny. This mysterious force is a force that appears to be negative, but actually shows you how to realize your destiny. It prepares your spirit and will, because there is one great truth on this planet:
Whoever you are, or whatever it is what you do, when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your mission on earth. The soul of the world is nourished by people’s happiness. And also by unhappiness, envy and jealousy. To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only real obligation. All things are one.
“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it”.
