LIKE THE FLOWING RIVER Paulo Coelho
Like the Flowing River is an intimate collection of Paulo Coelho's reflections and short stories. These are powerful tales of living and dying, of destiny and choice, of love lost and found. Sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, but always profound, this book, like all of Coelho's work, explores what it means to be truly alive. An old woman explains to her grandson how a mere pencil can show him the path to happiness... instructions on how to climb a mountain reveal the secret to making your dreams a reality... the author learns three important lessons when he goes to the rescue of a man in the street. Paulo shows us how life has lessons for us in the greatest, smallest and most unusual of experiences. Like the Flowing River includes jewel-like fables, packed with meaning and retold in Coelho's inimitable style. Sharing his thoughts on spirituality, life and ethics, Paulo touches you with his philosophy and invites you to go on an exciting journey of your own.
