Today’s Question by the reader : Lia

Author: Paulo Coelho

I read somewhere that by writing this book you tried to realize if people could revolve around eleven minutes and that you don’t believe people today revolve around sex.I remember that many had disagreed in your blog and the truth is I have heard many people saying that in our times it’s all about sex.So what do you answer them?Do you mean by your statement that sex has lost its true meaning?

Indeed, I believe sex has lost it’s true sacred meaning -i.e being closer to the core of live.

But this is more a symptom – rather than a cause – of how today’s society has cut itself from anything that remotely could bring it closer to the Mystery.
