The Alchemist

“To realize one’s destiny/Personal Legend is a person’s only obligation.”

It’s what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is.

At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible. They are not afraid to dream, and to yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives.

It prepares your spirit and your will, because there is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your mission on earth.

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

“All things are ONE.”

“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”

“And dreams are the language of God. But if he speaks in the language of the soul, it is only you who can understand.

“Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.”

“The Soul of the World is nourished by people’s happiness.”

“The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.”

“People fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.”

“Every blessing ignored becomes a curse.”

“The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world, and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon.”

“We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.

“This is what we call love. When you are loved, you can do anything in creation. When you are loved, there’s no need at all to understand what’s happening, because everything happens within you.”

“When you want something with all your heart, that’s when you are closest to the Soul of the World. It’s always a positive force.”

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”

“One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.”

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”

“Don’t give in to your fears. If you do, you won’t be able to talk to heart.”

“You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it’s better to listen to what it has to say. “

“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.”

“If someone isn’t what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.

“You must always know what it is that you want.”

“The secret of life, though, is to fall even seven times and get up eight times.”

“People need not fear the unknown if they are capable of achieving what they need and want.”

“And, when you can’t go back, you have to worry only about the best way of moving forward.”

“No matter what he does, every person on earth plays a central role in the history of the world. And normally he doesn’t know it.

“We make a lot of detours, but we’re always heading for the same destination.”

“In order to find the treasure, you will have to follow the omens. God has prepared a path for everyone to follow. You just have to read the omens that he left for you.

“God placed them along your path.”

“If you start by promising what you don’t even have yet, you’ll lose your desire to work towards getting it.”

“When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong current that will carry him to places he had never dreamed of when he first made the decision.

“People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.

“Never stop dreaming, follow the omens.”

“Everything in life is an omen.”

“There is a language in the world that everyone understand. The universal language that deals with the past and the present of all people. It is the language of enthusiasm, of things accomplished with love and purpose, and as part of a search for something believed in and desired.”

“Everything on earth is being continuously transformed, because the earth is alive … and it has a soul.”

“If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we’re living right now.”

Wisdom of Albert Pike

  1. There are greater and better things in us all, than the world takes account of, or than we take note of; if we would but find them out.
  2. We have all the light we need, we just need to put it in practice.
  3. Will is the dynamic soul-force.
  4. True thoughts have duration in themselves. If the thoughts endure, the seed is enduring; if the seed endures, the energy endures; if the energy endures, then will the spirit endure. The spirit is thought, thought is heart; the heart is the fire; the fire is the Elixir.
  5. The double law of attraction and radiation or of sympathy and antipathy, of fixedness and movement, which is the principle of Creation, and the perpetual cause of life.
  6. One man is equivalent to all Creation. One man is a World in miniature.
  7. Philosophy is a kind of journey, ever learning yet never arriving at the ideal perfection of truth.
  8. The eyes of the cheerful and of the melancholy man are fixed upon the some creation; but every different are the aspects which it bears to them.
  9. To work with hands or brain, according to our requirements and our capacities, to do that which lies before us to do, is more honorable than rank and title.
  10. The universal medicine for the Soul is the Supreme Reason and Absolute Justice; for the mind, mathematical and practical Truth; for the body Quintessense, a combination of light and gold.
  11. Doubt, the essential preliminary of all improvement and discovery, must accompany the stages of man’s onward progress. The faculty of doubting and questioning, without which those of comparison and judgment would be useless, is itself a prerogative of the reason.
  12. A man should live with his superiors as he does with his fire: not too near, lest he burn; nor too far off, lest he freeze.
  13. The sovereignty of one’s self over one’s self is called Liberty.
  14. Faith begins where Reason sinks exhausted.
  15. Almost all the noblest things that have been achieved in the world, have been achieved by poor men; poor scholars, poor professional men, poor artisans and artists, poor philosophers, poets, and men of genius.
  16. That which causes us trials shall yield us triumph: and that which make our hearts ache shall fill us with gladness. The only true happiness is to learn, to advance, and to improve: which could not happen unless we had commence with error, imperfection and ignorance. We must past through the darkness, to reach the light.
  17. The Universe should be deemed an immense Being, always living, always moved and always moving in an eternal activity inherent in itself, and which, subordinate to no foreign cause, is communicated to all its parts, connects them together, and makes the world of things a complete and perfect whole.
  18. He who endeavors to serve, to benefit, and improve the world, is like a swimmer, who struggles against a rapid current, in a river lashed into angry waves by the wind. Often they roar over his head, often they beat him back and battle him. Most men yield to the stress of the current. Only here and there the stout, heart and vigorous arms struggle on towards ultimate success.
  19. Man is thus both human and divine: and the apparent antagonisms in his Nature are a real equilibrium, if he wills it shall be so; from which results the Harmony, not only of Life and Action, but of Virtue and Perfection.
  20. What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
