I re-read The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho earlier this week, and it was Divine Timing. As I prepare to head off on my pilgrimage, the messages in the book spoke directly to my Soul.
Here are a couple of insights which felt really pertinent right now: Firstly, I think we’re all hearing again the call that started us on this journey in the first place. With everything that’s been happening the past couple of years, it has been hard at times to remember that we CHOSE to heed a call. And now, even if we’ve been hanging out in the oasis for a while, it’s time to head to The Pyramids on our own, where we find out where the treasure lies. (Right back where we started – ?)
Also, the struggles along the way are a HUGE part of the journey. They’re ‘testing our mettle,’ so to speak – how much do we believe in our call? How much are we willing to give, of ourselves and our Selves to the cause? It’s not about the treasure itself, it’s about integrating the gifts of the journey. We may have to lose it all (more than once) before we reach the truth in our hearts. This is what makes us warriors and masters and reunites us with our power.
