Paulo Coelho's Blog

An excerpt..."In order to hear Love’s words, you must allow Love to approach.
However, when it does draw near, we fear what it might say to us, because Love is free and is not ruled by our will or by what we do.
All lovers know this, but refuse to accept it. They think they can seduce Love through submission, power, beauty, wealth, tears and smiles.
True Love, however, is the love that seduces and will never allow itself to be seduced.
Love transforms, love heals.
We are used to thinking that what we give is the same as what we receive, but people who love, expecting to be loved in return, are wasting their time.
Love is an act of faith, not an exchange.
Contradictions are what make love grow. Conflicts are what allow love to remain by our side.
Life is too short for us to keep important words, for example, ‘I love you’, locked in our hearts." - Brilliant!

Thanks to Paulo Coelho for bringing it to my attention.

Yes, so true. Thank you, Paulo Coelho.
I don't know why the Spanish translation of Mr. Coelho's native Portuguese is always missing significant phrases. However, the provided English translation usually is not. Although, the English translation is usually a little brutal.
I don't see the original Portuguese version, so I will do a Spanish/English hybrid translation. If I may be so bold:
"The true hero is not.
the one who was born for.
living great deeds,
but rather the one who,
living many smaller deeds,
continued to construct a wall.
of loyalty around them."

PUT GOD WHERE HE BELONGS:
As we enter the new year, it is time to put God where He belongs – as the only thing not just one of those things. God wants to be involved in everything concerning you and walk you through whatever life brings. You can choose to let him help you in all you do.
