The soul of the World is nourished by people's happiness. And also by uinhappiness, envy and jealousy. To realise oneäs destiny is a person's only real obligation. All things are one. And , when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
From " The Alchemist " by Paulo Coelho
This book was sent to me by one of my oldest friends around Christmas time , 1995, and marked the beginning of a long journey.
