that’s Great News!! isn’t it?! how simple and clear is that?! Putting the dot on top of the i, the missing part of the puzzle,”Butterflies are free to fly” is a free book that will clarify to you how exactly this whole game called “life” seems to work.
We are free to experience whatever we deeply enjoy to experience and choose to be happy if we really want to. Trust seems to be the hardest thing to learn but once we do, we are supposed to be able to spiritually fly and see manifest what we need.
You probably just like me, will need to read some chapters a couple of times to see the value in it as we tend to lose focus and take things too lightly in order to deeply understand the simplicity of real wisdom but I am sure you will enjoy it to expect the least.
This has been a very interesting new concept to explore and as I am learning to trust, I am sharing with whosoever is lucky enough to find such a gem just like I did.
I hope our wings will soon appear to enjoy the flight in full view! 🙂 Click on the butterfly to find the link to the page that will lead you to the book or audiobook.
“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how valuable it is, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate YOU. Keep the channel open.”
Words by Martha Graham As quoted in “Dance to the Piper and Promenade Home” (1982) by Agnes de Mille
“Enlightenment is not about imagining figures of light, But of making the darkness conscious! ” ~ Carl Jung
“The Universe has billions of ways to keep us humble and fascinated all at the same time.” ~Mike Pearson
Is hard to find the time to read a book these days besides the fact that the internet distances us from reading actual books as we find so much information on anything at the click of a word, there are anyhow, those times when our minds become so agitated with speed of events that we really need to slow down and take our imagination somewhere else, to somebody else’s story perhaps or a story that can teach us new lessons outside from our personal reality and there’s where this book is key to read. I have read several books by Paulo Coelho but ironically despite I heard a lot of good reviews about it, never read this his best seller; I just finished on the train home last night.
I have to say honestly, that I expected a more transcendental book, a more elaborated plot or I really don’t know what I did expect but instead I found this enchanting simple journey through imagination on a boy’s pilgrimage and could not stop reading it to its end in just few days. It is so gentle the way his fictional story merges with profound analysis and real inspirational wisdom in its quotes that its lessons seem to get embedded in your mind like transforming iron thoughts for gold ones as if by the tuition of an expertise or master teacher and then you know, you too have met the alchemist, you too are looking for a treasure and you too want to find it… Excellent!
Here are a few of my favorite quotes:
* “It is the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting”
*“Treason is a blow that comes unexpectedly. If you know your heart well, it will never be able to do that to you. Because you’ll know its dreams and wishes, and will know how to deal with them
*”When each day is the same as the next, it’s because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.”
*“If good things are coming, they will be a pleasant surprise,” said the seer. “If bad things are, and you know in advance, you will suffer greatly before they even occur.”
*”There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
*“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
Will Smith seems to love it too 🙂
Giving opens up the door to receiving. You have so many opportunities to give every day. Give kind words. Give a smile. Give appreciation and love. Give compliments. You can give courtesy to other motorists while you are driving. You can give a smile to the car parking attendant. You can give a warm greeting to the newspaper stand person or the person who makes your coffee. You can give by allowing a stranger to go ahead of you into an elevator, and you can give by asking which floor they are going to and pressing the button for them. If someone drops something you can give a helping hand and pick it up for them. You can give warm embraces to those you love. And you can give appreciation and encouragement to everyone. There are so many opportunities for you to give and thereby open the door to receiving. May the joy be with you,
