Almost two decades ago, a young man named Carlos gave me a book that changed my life. The Alchemist by Paolo Coehlo came at the perfect moment. I mean all books come at the perfect moment and when minutes after meeting him, Carlos just went into his bag and gave me the book, I was ready to heed its message: the universe is always conspiring on your behalf, it never ceases to send messages to get on track with your purpose, to align with your gift and dreams. If you are still, you can hear more clearly.
"To realize one's destiny," writes Coehlo, "is a person's only obligation."
Today's beautiful message from the 21 Days of Inspirationthat I have been participating was a sublime reminder of that timeless message.
