however, i read somewhere that effective parables should comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. Not giving heed to the concerns doubts and criticisms of others is something I believe is a major fault in modern society.

Então, no século XII, um Papa dissera que quem não tivesse forças para ir adiante, bastava atravessar o Portal do Perdão e receberia as mesmas indulgências dos peregrinos que chegavam ao fim do Caminho. It is a recollection of Paulo's experiences as he made his way across northern Spain on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. unfortunately, this book does neither of those things - it pampers to the egos of the self-righteous and chastises those who dont adhere to certain values. Before, I had thought that books existed to enrich me, giving me knowledge, pleasure and understanding. These are people who take a totally irrational stance, and stick to it as hard as they can in complete defiance to the views of everyone around them.He then meets his guide Petrus, who accompanies him through the pilgrimage across a sacred path illuminated by the light of the Milky Way Galaxy. Travel can cause us to question everything about ourselves, which is what Coelho really captures here and in many of this other works. This is a horrible little story implying that everyone is obsessed only with themselves, a sad, empty little thought that Coelho spends 167 pages endorsing wholeheartedly, under the guise of following your dreams. The allegorical novel was about an Andalusian shepherd boy who follows a mystical trek in which he learns to speak the "Language of the World" and thus receives his heart's desire.

Santiago has a wonderful, fulfilling life laid out before him, and would most likely die a happy man by the side of his lovely wife and adoring children, all while living comfortably as village counselor of a beautiful desert oasis. I think a big reason why I enjoyed this book was through my own personal experience, so I could see why it wouldn’t appeal to everyone.I need to start this review by stating 1) I can't stand self-help books and 2) I'm a feminist (no, I don't hate men- some men are quite awesome, but I am very conscious of women and our place in the world. In the end though, Coelho reveals to us that Santiago does, indeed, reach his "Personal Legend" in a two and a half page epilogue, where it is shoddily revealed that Santiago's long-sought after treasure is. On a legendary road across Spain, travelled by pilgrims of San Tiago, we find Paulo Coelho on a contemporary quest for ancient wisdom.

Symptoms may vary, but in all cases, it is recommended to suspend reading until the brain is reset in adequate sheep mode again.It has served as a spiritual and personal journey for many, so I was excited to dive into The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho.
