Unlike the other book by Paulo Coelho, this book contains stories and articles that previously have been published in various newspapers around the world. With works compiled from 1998 to 2005 this book is published. Like the Chinese saying, our life flow like the water in the river, the book title projected the value of what it contains.
The stories and articles are about his experience on the road, his daily life experience, the people he met, his action when faced with God’s calling, his point of view towards certain things that happened, lesson of life that we all could learn from things happened around us, because everything happens for a reason. To round it up it makes me notice all god creation exist for us to realize that we should be grateful with what we have even though I am still trying too.
For the good things and bad things that ever happened, we might just forget it with the time passing by, most people remember the bad more than the good one. We are all so focus on the matter, the story lines, what is right and what is wrong, mostly we put our self as the victim and we are on the right side. But we never tell our self to ask why that certain things happened? What it want us to learn from it, what is its message. Sometimes, these words are too commonly heard you might also past it by after reading it.
Perhaps by starting to ask why I am lead to this article and read it will be a good start, perhaps you should follow the universe guide and read the book. And the answer to your question inside you heart will be found. This is what I guess my lead to live life flowing like the water in the river and peace will be found.
