A description of the experience
Paulo Coehlo – The Alchemist
'You are in the desert. So immerse yourself in it. The desert will give you an understanding of the world, in fact, anything on the face of the earth will do that. You don't even have to understand the desert, all you have to do is contemplate a simple grain of sand, and you will see in it all the marvels of creation'.
'How do I immerse myself in the desert?'
'Listen to your heart. It knows all things, because it came from the Soul of the World, and it will one day return there'.
