So this morning I was lying in bed and scrolling through Facebook. I happened upon a post about Paulo Coelho, the author of the book “The Alchemist”. It was about his life story and how the book came to be and has now been read by millions. He had a hard time getting it published and the publisher that eventually published it did so without really knowing why, which ties in with the theme of the book…..
Before I go on with my story, it’s interesting to note the definition of ‘alchemist’:
. a person who transforms or creates something through a seemingly magical process.
I was lying in bed thinking, I don’t think I’ve ever read this book, but I would like to. I thought about getting the online version but thought I’d just wait for now. Anyway, I couldn’t sleep anymore and I had woke up early, so I thought I would just get up and start my day. No one else was up yet so I thought I would go and do some organizing in my office downstairs, so I wouldn’t make noise upstairs.
As a side note, I pick up books now and again at thrift stores and such and use them for my learning, lending library for clients, and inspiration for writing and sharing. Anyways, I grabbed a stack of books to sort and about 3 books in, there it was “The Alchemist”. 🙂
I love when this happens and it actually happens very often for me. In this case it was extra interesting when you read the definition of an alchemist. 🙂
I love getting confirmation of the tantalizing powers behind our physical eye and our mere five senses. The more I tap into these wonderful forces, the more the magic happens.
I hope you too find JOY in the divine synchronicities that are available to all of us. I just read a FB post from a friend, whose missing remote control magically manifested onto her coffee table this morning after being missing for a long time. 🙂
Have an AMAZING day everyone!
