The Alchemist & What it is Teaching me.
I am one of them too.
I am reading The Alchemist currently; and for the third time. Everytime I read it, it has foregrounded some new aspects. Almost as if, hidden secrets are popping up. Secrets that I didn’t understand earlier or wasn’t destined to face them at that time. “Maktub” as Santiago and the Arabs believed.
I want to highlight One lesson I am getting to learn right now through this spectacular book. And, it is the very prominent “Language of the World.”
I had read about the Law of Attraction, The Secret, Esther & Jerry Hicks’ Ask and It Is Given way back. Then it was very interesting. A new profound way. And after all these years of trials and errors of life, I was becoming lost. As if, I did not have any more control over shaping my destiny.
And, then one day after randomly watching Oprah’s youtube channel where she was interviewing Paulo Coelho, I was nudged in a mysterious way to read “The Alchemist” again. My logical mind said “You have already read it. You know what happens in the end. What joy can it bring anymore?”
But the nudge was stronger to “Go on still…read it again.”
I am almost towards the end of the book and I was gradually perusing the last pages when I came across some information regarding “Joining the Publisher’s reading club online.” Again I felt a nudge or an attraction to join it. I let the silence in and around me pull me towards whatever I was experiencing ordinarily. So, I subscribed on their website and I suddenly saw a tab “Careers” written there.
I have been looking for work from many years. After many unsuccessful attempts I just let it all go. And I have been enjoying my “present” moment. But I let the “Language of the World” to guide whenever it tried to.
I found very similar profiles to the kind of job I was looking and I applied at once. It was smooth and hassle free. It’s a bit strange since everytime I try to apply somewhere, either the internet acts erratic or my files get weird.
I received an interview session email today from them..
I guess there’s not much to say here. Let all of our soul do the talking here and experience the Language of the World and follow the Omens.
So, don’t give up. Wherever you are in life right now. You are here for a reason. And it will be revealed at the right time.
