The Alchemist is a wonderful book. However, I had not read it in quite a while. I laid down to take a nap on (12/26/20). As I started to drift off to sleep, a page of a book appeared in my mind's eye. I saw a sentence, but I do not recall exactly what I said. The only thing that truly stood out to me were the words “love” and “Paul”.
Within the dream, I instinctively knew that the sentence was from the book “The Alchemist” by Paul Coelho. I do not know how I knew but I just knew. When I woke up from my nap, I felt compelled to pull the book from my bookshelf. As I looked through the pages, I found the following sentence: “So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.” The word love is mentioned more than once in The Alchemist, but this sentence caught my eye.
Reflecting on the Dream
The universe is “awareness”. That is how I view the universe. I now believe that God is within us all. When we awake, it is God awakening within us, our identity. I feel as though this sentence is telling me God (my father) loves me. Not only that but everything I have been through has led me to this awakening. “God and my father are one, but my father is greater than I” so I have finally found my father. This is what the sentence says to me.
This way my dream but someone else reading the book could have a different takeaway from this sentence. If you haven’t read The Alchemist, I highly recommend it. It really is a great book.
