A Writer’s Gift


-A source of life to the readers.

It is true that all books have a beginning and an ending, but a good book never really ends. The pages end, but a good book lives on through it readers. Good literature takes root within minds who seek answers and guidance. I have experienced such a miracle through words. It’s a feeling that compels you to take action towards your own life, to think of the unknown, to do more than just the average. 

 I’ve been writing for about 5 years now, but I still feel that there is so much that I still must pen. I recently read “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho, and this book is the reason why I’m writing this entry now. How could a book so powerful, be written in the most simplistic of words known to man? Such a beautiful tale of pursing dreams and overcoming obstacles, it was a story that I could not get enough of, it was one that I had to finish, but one that would never end.

In my pursuit of writing, one wish of mine is to assist others, including myself, in this journey of life that we all embark upon. Assisting in ways of encouragement, laughter, wisdom, guidance, forgiveness and growth. All of these are very much needed to properly function and grow into healthy individuals. Many do not have that needed mentor or loved one to guide them correctly, but a good piece of literature can serve as a lifeline when one is desperately needed.

 Writers have a magical way of speaking to a person’s heart when it is ready to listen, and when a person receives such a message, they are forever grateful. Paulo Coelho doesn’t know me, but I know him, and through his words, he has made me a believer once again.

It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting”, “Dreams are the language of GOD”, “You will never be able to escape your heart”, Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse that suffering itself”, “Your eyes show the strength of your soul”, When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream”

-Paulo Coelho

My love for writing is undeniable, un-questionable, and will never cease. I am already an author aspiring to be greater than I am currently. Many blessing and support are poured upon me by my readers, and it’s good to know I reach people with my words, people as far as Africa and New Zealand.

 Being one of those individuals who readily needed guidance and support, but lacked the mentor and the loved ones who could’ve fill the position, I am proud to have used good literature as a life line, especially when I needed it the most. We all are connected somehow, and “The Alchemist” wasn’t just written to be a source of income for the author, but as a source of life to the readers who turn its pages.

Just as I have done, share the literature that you’ve come across that has impacted your life. You just never know what someone may be going through. People hold back things due to a lack of trust, but books can be trusted, they can also be the medium in which portals of communication are opened. Writers are linked to a higher power, writers possess magical powers, and writers write, only when a heart is truly ready…

    Greetings

    This morning I was thinking to myself , what is my favourite thing, the first thing that came into mind was “words”, Words to me have no past, present or future, they are endless, they Liberate, they are Freedom, they present you with Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding, words enlightens.
    Words take you places you can never imagine you would reach or capable of reaching.
    The Love that I have for Words it is the Love that I carry deep within me, to the tip of my soul.
    I read many books that overwhelmed me in a way that I go back and page them all over again.
    I want to be a writer ( inspired by writers), I am passionate about it, deeply.
    All these years whenever I put pen on paper( to write words that do exist within me) my hands fail to move then I put my pen down.
    A friend of my own copies of Paul Coelho, The Alchemist included, he recommended I read The Alchemist a year ago and I have not read it.
    It is time to get myself a copy of The Alchemist and start putting my pen on paper, its time for me to write.

    …………………………………………
    Due to your Love of Writing and mine, we share minds no matter what the distance.
    Time is always right when one writes ( your words have spoken to me at the right time, when I’m ready to open my heart).

    With Gratitude

    You wrote something that jumped off the page at me, and that is ‘We share minds no matter the distnace”. Just reading your comments, I sense that you indeed have a love for the words you speak of. I recommend it, the book will definately be something that you will forever remember, you won’t regret glancing through the pages of the Alchemist, this I somehow know 🙂 Thank you for sharing.

    “WHEN YOU WANT SOMETHING, ITS BECAUSE THE DESIRE ORIGINATED IN THE SOUL OF THE UNIVERSE. IT’S YOUR MISSION ON EARTH”

    161 Pages of the Alchemist, its a journey that takes you where you should be.

    In the Alchemist I found a combination of Osho, Swami Vivekananda, Mutabaruka, Rhonda Byrne, T.D Jakes, Eckhart Tolle,Robert Kiyosaki, the Buddha’s, just to name a few, they all speak the language of the Alchemist in their own way.
    You are right I will forever remember the Alchemist, such a wonderful read.
    Thanks for Sharing.
