    Se nota que esa experiencia fue muy agradable, a pesar del error. Dios te Bendiga hoy y siempre, eres increible.

  2. Arantxa says:

    Maestro Paulo, adoro tu risa, es tan contagiosa, jajajaja.

    Dios te bendiga. Quiero empezar diciendo que significas muchísimo para mi, ya que tú fuiste uno de los tantos caminos que me llevaron a conocer realmente el camino espiritual. Gracias a Dios, tengo muchas personas en mi vida que me guían y me acompañan en este camino espiritual, entre esas tú. No sé si llegaré a conocerte en algún momento de mi vida, simplemente eres grande, tienes una alma espectacular, la cual demuestras en cada uno de tus libros que escribes y compartes con nosotros.

    Todos tus libros son hermosos y nos inspiran. GRACIAS por todo, por tus palabras, por ser tú.

    Caro Paolo credo, che a tutte le persone che hanno letto almeno uno dei tuoi libri ,tu possa sembrare un fratello che ha vissuto piu’ o meno la loro stessa sofferenza in questa condizione umana.Una sofferenza interrotte a sprazzi da una gioia divina ,che da sola da valore alla stessa vita che con amore ci accingiamo ad onorare e a vivere in pieno . Grazie da un uomo alla ricerca di fonti di ispirazione. P.S che ne pensi della vita di Edgar Cayce e conosci Wayne W Dyer? Antonio il giardiniere.

  7. Desde hace mucho soy una gran admiradora suya y no es hasta 1990, cuando trabajaba de recepcionista en un hotel de Turismo en Cuba que tuve la dicha de tener mi primer libro suyo y que aún conservo en mi mesilla de noche. Regalo de un turista Brasileño.
    La lectura de ese gran libro “El Alquimista” que fué traducido a más de 53 idiomas y fue vendido por todo el Mundo me abrió muchas puertas y respondió a muchas de mis preguntas.
    Soy una apasionada del estudio de la metafísica y creo que ésta tiene un espacio abierto en su literatura.
    Escribí mi primera novela, se llama La Realidad d un Sueño y he creado mi primer blog, éste se llama EL CIBER MUNDO DE GELOIS . Casualmente acabo de publicar en él un precioso relato que leí hace mucho en el Dominical del Diario La Rioja aquí en España. Está debidamente señalado, con mucho respeto y admiración.
    Reciba todos mis respetos y cariño
    Una admiradora suya,
    Escritora Novel Cubana

    Hello !
    Thanks, I spent good time.
    An abstract of my life in 5mn46s, impressing. :)
    Like you and a lot of people, I just try, go over my limits everyday…
    Many times I fail, sometimes I win :)
    But no way for giving up.
    As long as we breathe, we should try, discover and improve ourselves.
    With love as well, the only thing that keeps me alive : EXPERIENCE !! :)

  14. Empié says:

    Pa habernos matao¡¡¡¡

    Se me había olvidado lo divertida que puede llegar a ser la vida, gracias por recordármelo.

    Dejo atrás un mundo, empieza otro…

    Primero lo amargo, luego lo dulce.

    A disfrutar de la vida¡¡¡¡

  15. Psalmbody says:

    Hmm…desert mystery tours! I like the grooves playing A LOT, Paulo; esp. the opener! Can someone please identify them for future pleasure? P(e)ace.

  16. Adela says:

    ¡Oh Diosss! ya lo he visto, ¡ que bochorno !
    PERDÓN

  17. Adela says:

    ¡ Diosss ! Pero…, si yo no escribo así de mal, ¿ Por que salen esas letras mayúsculas y esas expresiones tan raras ?
    Perece que dice que me he separado y eso no es así.
    Se ve que le tengo que clicar a algún enlace de traductor, cosa que no veo por ningún lado.
    ¡Hay Diosss!

  18. Lorenia says:

    Mr. Cohelo i liked your video, i am writing to you from San Luis Rio Colorado Sonora in Mexico, i live in the desert, you mentioned the Sonoran Desert in Aleph, you should come and visit us in this region, i am a fan of your books and your words, have a great week.

  19. Miriam says:

    Your adventure in the desert reminds me of story a Kuwaiti student told me a long time ago. It was 1986. I was teaching at the University of Delaware. One day my student Khalid saw me get out of my brand new Chevy Sprint – a 5-speed that gave me 60 miles to the gallon. 60 miles!!! Khalid says to to me with a big smile, “Miss Miriam, my young brother, he is 8, has the same car and drives it in the dessert for fun. It’s like a toy.” I loved that car. I hope to some day run an ultramarathon in the desert wth my feet! I’ll leave the driving to you Paulo! It looks like a lot of fun. It made me laugh!!

  20. Fernanda says:

    I just loved it! At first cause I could understand you…in english!
    I was really amazing! Who was with you?
    Waiting next week…
    Best regards

  21. I like hearing laughter too, it is infectious. Thankyou Supi and Paulo. Have a wonderful week everyone!
    Love, Jane

  22. Yilmaz says:

    I enjoyed so much the sandbashing. Thanks Paulo for making me headbang on my couch with you.

    I have made many mistakes in my live and I am proud of them. If we stop doing them either we have become 100% one with god and stop being human or our lives have become pretty boring.

    With love.

  23. Renna says:

    Well they say you won’t know what life really looks like if you don’t risk and fall in mistakes !…

    I loved that you’ve filmed it and showed us that sometimes we do think we can do more than what we are actually capable of ..!

    you’ve always been my idol and I’ve always inspired a lot of things through your books and thoughts..

    and for a reason deep inside my heart or even beyond that ” by soul” , I wished if I can take your advice in how my whole life is going …

    Giving all what I got and receiving nothing in return even from the closest…
    loving but not loved .. and most of all hated by my own parents..my own family

    going to a point of thinking that I’ve must have done something unforgivable maybe before I was born !! who knows!

    I really wish deep inside that you might give me the chance even if once only to write you my whole story , seeking your advice..

  24. Erika says:

    love the ride, music, laughter, sunset…and the mistake! cant wait to see next weeks podcast to see happens next!

  25. Vesna says:

    Eee Dear Paulo
    I can understand exactly what you are telling about.

  26. Fernanda says:

    Meu querido,
    Como diz o ditado: ” when life hands you lemons, mix some tequila and call me over”! Espero que vcs tenham aproveitado a vista maravilhosa do por do sol no deserto! Beijo no coração, Fernanda

  27. Adela says:

    Hola paulo.
    Mi comentario sobre su paseo en coche sobre la arena del desierto es que se ve que tenia ganas de aprender algo nuevo, a vez que se lo pasaba bien.
    Me imagino que lo que habrá aprendido sera a que no debemos tratar de hacer las cosas como los demás. Pues cada uno tiene su propia experiencia.
    De todos modos como cada uno saca sus propias conclusiones, estoy deseando ver el próximo vídeo y su explicación para ver que nos dice.
    Un saludo de esta su seguidora desde hace solo unos meses y que sepa que me tiene enganchadisima a Usted.
    Ya me he leído, “El Alquimista” ” A orillas del Río Piedra me senté y Llore” “Brida” “Alehp” “Once Minutos” Y ahora estoy leyendo ” Como el río que fluye” Y tengo esperando en mi mesita de noche ” La bruja de Portobello”
    ¿ pero… que nos da …? : )
    Creo que a cada uno nos llega nuestro momento de crecer en el momento en que estamos preparados para ello y usted entre otros autores me esta ayudando a ello GRACIAS.
    Adela.

  28. I Love it! Clearly illustrates that no matter how stuck we feel we are sometimes, we will come out of any situation. Actually, the more stuck we feel, the more it will develop our creativity in finding the best way out. We all are creators, if we believe that, than we will accept responsibility that we create the situations we are in. Therefore, we can also create the solution and learn so many valuable lessons. Unfortunately when we limit ourselves and focus on all the reason why it is impossible to get out of a certain situation ( given the lack of tools), we just bury ourselves deeper in the sand. I am sure that the reason why you are telling about this experience today is because you all did not just sit in the vehicule discussing over how you would never get out of it…That’s what makes any challenge or learning experience such a joyful one!

  29. Arto Hutto says:

    Obrigado Paulo,
    Even the pros get stuck in the sand dunes =;O)
    Thanks to that, you got to enjoy the beautiful sunset and the tranquility of the desert, instead of a roaring engine.
    Best regards,
    Arto

  30. cristina cabral says:

    Acho que eu gostaria de andar de camelo. ficaria tonta de carro, balança muito.
    Mas vc parecia contente. obrigada pelo video

  31. Brave_soul says:

    Everyone should experience this. It is so much fun but unlike Paulo I sat in the Front passenger seat.
    Good for you Paulo for trying………That took lots of courage. It is not easy to drive in there…………Did you camp too?

    Have Fun

  32. Alexandre says:

    Absolutamente genial!!!!!

  33. Olta Canka says:

    LOL you’re too much fun Paulo. hahahha
    This is one of your videos that I most like esp. how it ends. :P But that is on the other video.
    If there was anything I’ve always fought most it was MAKING MISTAKES. And then I learned that mistakes can be a good thing also, but now I see mistakes just as choices. CHOICES THAT sometimes BRING ‘PAIN’, therefore we fear and name them as wrong and mistake.
    I saw that it is part of being who I am to make lots of mistakes get into troubles :S but it is fun.

    Just a matter of choices. A matter of what you like most: wanna fear or wanna enjoy?

    Love

  34. Beatrice says:

    Dearest, thank you for the ride! Wish I was there… Wonderful laugh, smile, person, Creator! Happy Week! Ciao

  35. Audrey McCoy says:

    Ha!!! That’ll teach you! What can you do but collapse to your knees and laugh…I hate that feeling of guilt over messing up, but if it’s not done deliberately you shouldn’t feel too bad. You can always do something nice, like take them out for a lovely meal etc. Great choice of film music for the video by the way. X

  36. Marie-Christine says:

    Hello Lawrence :) Loved the music accompanying.

    As you said it’s all about experiences. What you have gone through you can talk about it, the rest…. there are always new experiences awaiting you…with a leap of faith.

    -Sand bashing one of the experience in Dubai,-

    During the rainy seasons, where I was living these kind of situations occurred . Your car can get bogged down on dirt road and you have to be prepared for the conditions, or you can put yourself in ‘Sandy weather ,.

    You were in good hands and smiling face also with the right technology…the mobile sand phone worked.
    With love
    Marie-Christine

  37. Alex says:

    Everybody makes mistakes, dear Paulo. Some extract from them good lessons, but others don’t learn anything, because they’re too busy with small stuff, like gossip.

  38. Hulya says:

    Dear Paolo,
    thanks to share this experience. You look like a child and you make me laugh and feel good.
    I just finished to read Aleph and it was an amazing story. The first book I red was The Alchemist and it helped me so much. I returned back to my childhood, I found my optimism again. Now I can believe in my dreams. Your happiness gives us so much. Thanks a lot, you can’t imagine how you helped me.
    Love and gratitude.
    Hulya

  39. Heimo Kruschinski says:

    I know the videos already. I have seen them last year, or the yeat before. I love them. You have an infectious way to laugh. Perhaps even the desert interested in this. :-) Much love!

    I wish you all a wonderful day

  40. Mr Sandman says:

    Why you just couldnt take any equipments, for instance a shovel, with you ?
    It doesnt seems to be so badly stucked. But with this experience next time you remember to take it. Lifelessons are always useful.

    :-)

    1. Paulo Coelho says:

      The night will fall, and we will be there still stuck. You will see in the next podcasts

    2. Brave_soul says:

      Lucky you…………You got to stay the over night in the desert…………I am jealous!

  41. Sheela Nandini says:

    Couldn’t help but notice that you raised both your hands, dearest Paulo ;)

    All the right ingredients there- sun, sand, laughter, friends and a ‘mistake’!

    LOVE the sunset…And the Desert Theme is always so fascinating for me.

    Happy for you that you had this wonderful experience.I had the opportunity to visit Jaipur years ago(2003 actually) and longed to visit Jaisalmer for the great desert experience but it was a very short visit then.

    Love
    sheela

  42. Jennifer says:

    Happy Monday!!! Thank you for taking me along for the ride!!! I love your laugh!!!
    Love, light and blessings to all

  43. Heart says:

    Haha. I had seen this on youtube before. You ended up stuck and in despair in the sandy desert for awhile, but it certainly was worth it for the fun ride!

  44. Chantal says:

    It’s been a dream of mine to take a dune buggy through huge sand dunes. Ever since I saw the movie called “The Cell” I was entranced by the opening scene of a boy walking on top of huge peaks of sand.

    Paulo, where exactly in the world is? It looks somewhere in Saudi Arabia but I would love to know exactly where. Perhaps it will be a future destination of mine!

    Thanks.

    - Chantal

  45. Annie says:

    such a great experience!! i breathed in all the joy and fun you had on that desert-ride :)
    “I have always loved the desert. One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing. Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams…”

  46. Haiku says:

    A mistake that appeared to be alot of fun :-)

  47. Ir.’. Paulo, esta é uma das mais fantásticas experiências que se podem ter:)))
    Fiz 4×4 durante décadas na minha vida e situações como estas eram as mais engraçadas e excitantes das viagens na areia:) Muito obrigada pela partilha Paulo. O seu riso e voz são contagiosas e a sensação era como estar no jipe também! Abraço.
    nnDnn

    Hello ! I am from Romania and I am a huge fan! I just want to say that first I downloaded Aleph from the Internet and I fell in love with the story, and I bought it from the library along with other books of you: 11 minutes and The Alchemist! Great great stories, thank you!
