30 Days of Alchemy

10.   “One day, the earth began to tremble, and the Nile overflowed its banks. It was something that I thought could happen only to others, never to me. . . The land was ruined, and I had to find some other way to earn a living. So now I’m a camel driver. But that disaster taught me to understand the world of Allah: people need not fear the unknown if they are capable of achieving what they need  and want.

We are afraid of losing what we have, whether it’s our life or our possessions and property. But this fear evaporates when we understand that our life stories and the history of the world were written by the same hand.”

-Paulo Coelho, “The Alchemist”
