About 'The Alchemist' by Paulo Coelho.

I was expecting a light read and instead it turned into a reprimand from Spirit.

Even thought the story is written as if it is merely the life of the shepherd boy, Santiago, the messages were very clear. The book deals with one's ability or inability to pursue one's destiny, for whatever reasons we may give to justify our actions.

I have realised through this book, that most of us, if not all of us have a destiny to attain, that we all want that one seemingly unreachable thing that keeps us going. Sometimes however, we find ourselves unwilling to reach out and claim that destiny for ourselves, just yet; purely because the wanting of that goal has become the energy or drive we need in order to survive our existence.

If we can say to ourselves that we have a destiny that ONE DAY we would like to attain, it allows us to justify the unacceptable circumstance of our daily lives. We are almost boosted by the secret knowledge that we are different from the rest of mankind, because we have that destiny.

It's so sad however, that very few people ever reach that pinnacle, that place of victory, because they have accumulated so much living, bogged themselves down in their circumstance to such an extent that they find themselves unable to let go and reach for the dream.

I have a destiny too.

I see myself reaching the top of my field, my company being the leader in the market, and yet I find 'something' holding me back. All the possibility is there, the market is there, and like an un-mined diamond shaft it lies in wait for me. Yet I've leant my ears out to the world's greatest lie. "The lie that says that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us and our lives become controlled by fate."

I have through experience learnt what my limitations are, I know myself well. I know that I am able to think clearly, even think on an elevated level, that my ideas and desires are valid and good, but I also 'know' that I battle when it comes the continuation of the destiny I hold in my head. I have allowed myself to be less, because I've thought myself to be less.

I've allowed the 'forces' of the universe to hold me back, instead of seeing it for what it is. In the book it's described as "a force that appears to be negative, but actually shows you how to realise your destiny, it prepares your spirit and will..." It makes sure that your resolve is strong enough for the goal you are reaching for. That then leaves the question to be answered: Am I strong enough?

When I look at my life, at all the aspects I find good, I rejoice in being alive. Yet when I look at what is lacking, or all that could be improved, I am bolstered with energy at how I can make it better.

I find myself strong enough, tough enough and ready enough to take action, and action will be the only thing that will bring me the outcome I desire.
