Spiritual progress is like detoxification. Things have to come up in order to be released. Once we have asked to be healed, then our unhealed places are forced to the surface.

By breathing life into a thought and pursuing it to its material creation in the real world, we engage in an ancient an unique relationship with the universe and the divine. Our minds are linked to a greater consciousness, its power and effectiveness waiting only for the question.

“At that moment it seemed to him that time stood still and the soul of the world surged within him.

When he looked into her dark eyes and saw that her lips were poised between a laugh and silence,

he learned the most important part of the language that all the world spoke.

The language that everyone on earth was capable of understanding in their heart. It was love.

Something older than humanity, more ancient than the desert.

Something that exerted the same force whenever two pairs of eyes met, as had theirs here at the well.

She smiled, and that was certainly an omen. The omen he had been awaiting without even knowing he was for all his life.

The omen he sought to find in his sheep and in his books. In the crystals and in the silence of the desert…

It was the pure language of the world. It required no explanation, just as the universe needs none as it travels through endless time.

What the boy felt at that moment was that he was in the presence of the only woman in his life.

And that, with no need for words she recognized the same thing.

He was more certain of it, than of anything in the world. He had been told by his parents and grandparents

that he must fall in love and really know a person before becoming committed. But maybe people who

felt that way never learned the universal language. Because when you know that language,

its easy to understand that someone in the world awaits you. Whether its in the middle of the desert or in some great city.

And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant.

There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only.

It is the hand that evokes love and makes a twin soul for every person in the world.

Without such love, one’s dreams would have no meaning.”

― Paulo Coelho (via alchemicalascension)
Great spirits have always encountered opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.
