Today’s Question by Aart Hilal

Author: Paulo Coelho

In The Valkyries, you have called yourself a wizard. Are you, in reality, a practitioner of magic?
Everybody is a magus-another important lesson from the Road to Santiago. The thing is: nobody accepts that she/he has gifts and powers. In magic, there are two traditions: the moon and the sun. The first is accumulation of knowledge and the second is revelation. In my youth, I used to practice traditional rituals, till I realized that I””and everybody””know everything. It is just an act of will to open ourselves to the Soul of the World.
