Book Review – Aleph by Paulo Coelho

This book was one sent to me by my friend Brendon Buchard when i picked up a copy of his Lasted book The Charge. I actually had no plans to read it but when i sat down a few days ago and decided to relax for the night wit a book it was the only one near by.  I am happy that was the case. It turned out to be nothing like i thought it would be.  I was expecting a fiction tale of time travel. what i got was the spiritual journey of a man . Dealing with a feeling of restless emptiness in the present caused by events of his past, that threaten to unravel his future.

There are many quotes that can be pulled from Aleph and even more life lessons that can be learned.  The book is a quick read, only a few hundred pages and written from the perspective of the writer. Paulo Coelho isn’t just the writer but also the main character as Aleph is based on the events of a book tour he did in 2006. Some of it may seem far fetched but if you go into this book with an open mind i think you will come out the other side with a better understanding of what you need to do to live a better happier life.

Most of us like many of the superheroes we read about in comic or watch on the big screen suffer from the effects of event in our past. We struggle to let go or resolve issues with those events. This is what creates many if not all of our problems with our present lives and/or makes us cast doubt on our future. I highly recommend picking it up , as it may hold the key to unlocking your future.

Five Favorite Quotes from Aleph by Paulo Coelho

Aleph978-0-307-95701-6“It’s what you do in the present that will redeem the past and thereby change the future.” ― Paulo Coelho

“Don’t be intimidated by other people’s opinions. Only mediocrity is sure of itself, so take risks and do what you really want to do.” ― Paulo Coelho

“If you conquer yourself, then you conquer the world” ― Paulo Coelho

“If I believe I will win, then victory will believe in me.” ― Paulo Coelho

“In magic – and in life – there is only the present moment, the now. You can’t measure time the way you measure the distance between two points. ‘Time’ doesn’t pass. We human beings have enormous difficulty in focusing on the present; we’re always thinking about what we did, about how we could have done it better, about the consequences of our actions, and about why we didn’t act as we should have. Or else we think about the future, about what we’re going to do tomorrow, what precautions we should take, what dangers await us around the next corner, how to avoid what we don’t want and how to get what we have always dreamed of.” 
― Paulo Coelho
