THE ALCHEMIST – A Reader’s view

with 2 comments

Seldom does a printed information leaves an ever- lasting impression in one’s mind. This was one such book facilitating a complete transformation of one’s mind. The story had a charisma in itself, and the author played his role very well in delivering a masterpiece, that was destined to change lives of millions of readers and show the right path to several others.

“The Alchemist”, by Paulo Coelho, is what i’m talking about. A book that talks about how a boy found his destiny and shows others how to find one’s and travel towards the fulfilling of their dreams. It has left an everlasting impression on me and I believe that there can be a lot of interpretations about the same book, based on the point of view of readers. Everyone has their own view and perception of a single source can be different for different individuals. and that is what this book tells exactly about – How to travel towards your destiny and listen to the sounds an call of your own mind.

Listening to your heart and following it, is one thing that most of them fail to do these days. They are merely following their daily routines. There are great artists hidden in a businessman, a great philosopher may be waiting to emerge from a busy shopkeeper. All these men just failed to follow their heart. Following sheepishly to meet their daily needs and earn a living, by sacrificing the ultimate call of their hearts!

And this, one can’t blame it on the attitude, but the situation and circumstances forces a man to sacrifice the call of his heart and this book is the perfect guide on how to challenge the odds and reach your destiny – Find out what you are destined to do in life!

I’m fortunate enough in having chosen a profession that i’ve always wanted to be and I believe, i’m following my heart’s voice. Thanking the almighty and following my dreams that I firmly believe will help me reach the destiny as the boy did by discovering the treasure beneath the old tree in the abandoned church.

This life indeed is a search for a treasure…:)
