Wow!! Is all I can really say about this beautiful book Paulo Coelho created. It follows a young boy through series of Journeys because of a dream he continuously has about a hidden treasure. Every word in this story will speak out to anyone who opens this creation of a book.
“When each day is the same as the next, it’s because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
The Power of Now
The Power of now is intended to be a self-help book for living in the present moment. Eckhart Tolle uses a question and answer format to present to you a meditative way in understanding how to avoid thinking about the past and not worry about the future and just live your life in the present because this moment is all we have. It is such an awe inspiring book filled with meaningful words in every flip of a page.
“Nothing has happened in the past; it happened in the Now. Nothing will ever happen in the future; it will happen in the Now.”
― Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
Eat, Pray, Love
This book is a must read for anyone who thinks that you don’t have enough time to travel. This book follows a women who goes by the name of Elizabeth in the journey of finding herself by traveling to three different countries in each country fulfilling a certain aspect of her nature; pleasure, devotion, worldly enjoyment, & divine transcendence. If you ever run out of books to read (which I’m sure won’t happen) make sure Eat, Pray, Love is one of those books.
“I’m choosing happiness over suffering, I know I am. I’m making space for the unknown future to fill up my life with yet-to-come surprises.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
