In the book, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, the shepherd named Santiago is on a quest. It is interrupted by a group who will kill him if he cannot turn himself into the wind.
"Don't give in to your fears," said the alchemist, in a strange gentle voice. "If you do, you won't be able to talk to your heart."
"But I have no idea how to turn myself into the wind."
"If a person is living out his Personal Legend, he knows everything he needs to know. There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve : the fear of failure."
"I'm not afraid of failing. It's just that I don't know how to turn myself into the wind."
"Well, you'll have to learn; your life depends on it."
"But what if I can't?"
"Then you'll die in the midst of trying to realize your Personal Legend. That's a lot better than dying like a million other people, who never even knew what their Personal Legends were."
What is your Personal Legend? Is fear stopping you from living it? or the idea that you don't know how? or perhaps you are just overwhelmed by the BIGness of it? You already have everything you need within YOU...take a step, awaken & watch the Universe walk with you........& as always, keep your heart w i d e open. Go out today with the intention of living your Personal Legend & see miracles happen.
