“…before a dream is realised, the soul of the world tests everything that was learned along the way… so that we can, in addition to realising our dreams, master lessons as we’ve moved towards that dream. That’s the point at which most people give up.” ~Paolo Coehlo, The Alchemist

Lady: I’m toootally learning about letting go in life, like seriously, just letting everything all go- feels so amazing… detachment and compassion, yeah….

Voice from the Sky: What’s that behind your back dear?

Lady: What – this? Ah it’s nothing, just a very precious thing – I found it now you can’t take it from me, finders keepers. I need this, it’s outside the rules you see because it’s so very precious.

Voice from the Sky: Now it’s not really yours is it?  Time to let it go, place it gently back where you found it and say sorry. Now get yourself home and find where you lost your own precious things so long ago.

Lady: Shit – busted.

“If what we find is pure matter, it will never spoil. And we can always come back. If what you had found was only a moment of light, like the explosion of a star, you would find nothing on your return.” ~ Paolo Coehlo, The Alchemist
