Today’s Question by the reader : Mavi

Author: Paulo Coelho

With all the experience that you have gained, how would you describe a pilgrimage to your inside world, to discover your true self, your soul? And after doing so, how would you say is the way to stay in touch with that reality inside, despite of the everyday world we live in?

Experience is not a cumulative process and therefore the path is never over for the pilgrim. To me writing books is always a new way to discover what lies in my soul. I’m constantly learning from others and discovering new dimensions to my soul.

I would say that being here, now, is the deepest way of connecting with life. The division between the inside and the outside vanishes when you’re concentrated in living life to its fullest.
