Transform your life. Rewrite your destiny.
In his most personal novel to date, internationally best-selling author Paulo Coelho returns with a remarkable journey of self-discovery. Like the main character in his much-beloved The Alchemist, Paulo is facing a grave crisis of faith. As he seeks a path of spiritual renewal and growth, he decides to begin again: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the landscapes around him.
Setting off to Africa, and then to Europe and Asia via the Trans-Siberian Railway, he initiates a journey to revitalize his energy and passion. Even so, he never expects to meet Hilal. A gifted young violinist, she is the woman Paulo loved five hundred years beforeâand the woman he betrayed in an act of cowardice so far-reaching that it prevents him from finding real happiness in this life. Together they will initiate a mystical voyage through time and space, traveling a path that teaches love, forgiveness, and the courage to overcome life’s inevitable challenges. Beautiful and inspiring, Aleph invites us to consider the meaning of our own personal journeys: Are we where we want to be, doing what we want to do?

Oprah once said that she raised millions of children from her talk show - and that is true - but I am here to tell you, Mr. Coelho is raising millions and millions of humans - and good humans at that with a book like Aleph and all of his other works. And we are all the better for it.
When you read Coehlo, you go on a soul journey. This is not one of his best books, in my estimation, but I stuck with it, and came away with the best way to describe life to young people who are still learning.the hard way. His analogy of a train is a wonderful way to describe to young people the way life is.
Imagine life as a train and a train car you are riding in, any time you want to change that car, it is within you to be able to get up and walk into the next car, and the next car and so on. What a good way to say it! You can choose your car, your travel mates, etc. Books like this , which cause us to examine our lives are a wonderful way to relax and try to understand the why and what of life. They often help you to analyze what is happening and why you are bringing sad events into your life, that you can control by your choices.
Can we all go on a long journey in real life and discover the answers to our questions, I think not. The train trip is also an analogy of life itself, as a long journey, that leads us to meet people, and someone in that crowd of people, if we give him or her time to know us , has answers for our soul, if we want to stop and try to discover , try to understand, etc. How often will any of us ever get this opportunity? Maybe never in this life time, and then maybe through introspection you realize that someone was a motivator in your life, sacrificing his or her own life to give you a lesson that awakens your soul. Maybe this is hard to understand, but I tried in my book to say this, under cover of stories from different people, about events that happened in their lives.
So, if you want to spend some time with your soul try a little Coelho.
