A Manual for Conserving Paths

Saturday, January 19, 2008

PathwayFrom Paulo Coehlo, author of The Alchemist, we have this cool eCard. Since we are working on opening doors, I thought it might be good to say a little bit about following the paths that might lead from those open doors.

(Run your mouse over the right hand corner of the card below, it will begin to curl, click on it to open the card and turn the pages. If it doesn't load properly, here's a direct link to the page where I found it.)

Okay for some reason I feel resistant to seeing anything new or whatever in this ecard. I think it is easy for someone who is sitting in the place where Paulo Coelho is sitting to be all Lah Lah Lah life is a path tend it, love it etc.... Maybe if he was sitting where I am sitting writing this he wouldn't feel quite so Lah Lah Lah, instead he'd feel more urgent need to get off of this path and find a new one. I have read his books and while I thought the Alchemist was good all the rest just seemed like attempts to capitalize on the Alchemist. They don't feel like they are real, like he really lived their messages. Or maybe I am just in a grumpy mood this morning but I don't feel grumpy and I did not set my intentions to be a pessimistic grouch. I just really do think it is easy for some one with all the money and abundance they need to pass out flowers of optimism to all those struggling to find them. So there. LOL

I LIKE this card. I guess I didn't see what you saw in it.

Here are the parts I liked:

1) The path you choose doen't last forever. (I tend to think that once it's going to be a till death us do part kind of thing)

2) Just as you respect the ground you step on, the ground will respect your feet. (I love the image of this... what if I respected all the ground I step on... what if I respect the carpet, the floors, the concrete, the grass, the mud, the snow, the ice, the gravel... I love how that feels when I think about living like that).

3)The path goes forward and backward. (I always think of backwards as being the 'wrong' way... what if it's not wrong at all, just a little back tracking... I hadn't thought of it that way)

4)Be patient some tasks have to be repeated. (Ok... I never like it whan I have to repeat stuff. I always feel like it's a failure on my part. But what if it's not? What if it's like weeding a garden? Or watering the flowers?)

5)Love your path. Without this, nothing makes any sense. (I think he's right. If I don't love my path... why the heck am I on it?)

So... that's my take on it. And I do agree, the Alchemist was his best book.
