The Alchemist sees getting lost is an inevitability of the learning process, and the journey is about getting lost in the clouds of information and muddled experience and then refinding the spark of a child except armed with knowledge and experience this time around.
Stated explicitly! A top ten book for me... I read all I can about antidiluvian and pre-antidiluvian
wisdom... Its rare to find a nice lil novel thats a beautiful read... Tho old blue men or true Toltec saying rings in my ears daily- "Observe what you are observing"
