My own fascination about Morocco started from reading Fashion and Home Magazines where Designers talked about their exotic holidays in the country. They explained how Morocco inspired them to create products for their Collections. In Morocco we discovered that their architecture, their streets and many different products for the Home and Fashion were full of colour and designed according to their own Islamic traditions. Morocco is a country full of design inspirations. No wonder the Hermes family, the late Yves St Laurent have holiday homes here in Morocco. For sure, they obtained lots of design inspirations in this creative and colourful country.
Santiago learnt that The Soul of the World is nourished by people's happiness. And also by unhappiness, envy and jealousy. To realize one's Personal Legend is a person's only real obligation.
All things are one.
And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
During Santiago's journey across the Dessert, he met an Englishman, his soulmate Fatima and The Alchemist who taught him about the Language of the World, love.
Santiago asked The Alchemist, Why do we have to listen to our hearts? The Alchemist explained, Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you'll find your treasure.
Throughout Santiago's journey, he listened and followed all of the advises from the wise men and women that he met in the Dessert. His story is about the faith, power and courage we all have within us to pursue the intricate path of a Personal Legend, a path charted by the mysterious magnet of destiny but obscured by distractions.
Santiago shows how along the way we learn to trust our hearts, read the seemingly inconspicuous signs, and understand that as we look to fulfill a dream, it looks to find us just the same, if we let it.
I hope you will get a chance to read the adventure of Santiago in The Alchemist.
Have a wonderful and fulfilling weekend!
