Has anyone read this book by Paulo Coelho? One of the famous quotes from it is "when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."

Of course, this can be blocked by our own limiting thoughts/beliefs.

Hi Watergirl,

I have not read the book but know a little about it. I heard about the quote too. I believe when something is supposedto be then all energies are behind it so that it cannot, but, to happen. It is like those smooth relationships vs the bumpy ones or when one candidate is the favorite vs the other one. I need to read the book before commenting :).

Have you read it? What is your view of the quote?

Hi znl - I have not read it but want to. My puppy doesn't leave me much alone time though! I saw an interview of the author on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday. Very interesting. I've seen this law in action but I've also seen the opposite. The author said the key was our own limiting thoughts and beliefs.

When something unflaverful is in motion the universe may not be all out to stop it. Such complicated matters. Makes you think faith has a lot to do with it.

I am sure, I will read it at some point. I used to read so much, but somehow, in the last few years I have had difficulty in concentrating enough to read.

Well, I want and frankly need a certain contract to come through and am asking the Universe to conspire on my behalf please!!
