STONE CATCHERS: The Alchemist (part 3)

alch 

Wow! What a book! I just finished it. In the back I found Paulo Coelho’s blog site: paulocoelhoblog.com. I’ve decided to reach out to Mr. Coelho. I’ll share what I wrote to him. But first, I’d like to share a few more quotes from “The Alchemist.” These quotes really touched me and I found significant meaning in them. I hope you can too.

 

“When you are loved, you can do anything in creation.”

 

“When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.”

 

“Love is the force that transforms and improves the Soul of the World.”

 

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are.”

 

“The boy reached through to the Soul of the World, and saw that it was part of the Soul of God. And he saw that the Soul of God was his own soul. And that he, a boy, could perform miracles.”

 

“I only invoked what you already knew.”

 

“Everything that happens once can never happen again. But everything that happens twice will surly happen a third time.”

 

“His heart whispered, ‘Be aware of the place where you are brought to tears. That’s where I am, and that’s where your treasure is.”

 

“Its true; life really is generous to those who pursue their Personal Legend.”

 

And now, my letter to Mr. Coelho:

 

Hello Mr. Coelho.
My name is Steven.

 

“When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream.”

 

The ALCHEMIST has taught me to listen to my heart. And to pay close attention to omens. I am in prison. Just like you once were. I published my first ebook at the age of 38. You were 38 when you first got published. Omens? We’ll see.

 

I am in pursue of my Personal Legend. I am embarking upon a journey that will lead me to my treasure. You have inspired me beyond words and into action. I am the nations leading blogger from behind bars, with over 22K followers. I’d like to invite you to check out my blog and to read my 3 part series. This series is in response to THE ALCHEMIST, and has several quotes straight from your book. And now I will ask something of you: Will you please help me reach my goal of 100K blog followers? My journey is still young and I need some of that beginners luck that you talk about.

 

I eagerly await your reply.

 

Sincerely,

Steven D. Jennings
