Today’s Question by Theresa

Author: Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho, the Latin American who became an icon in today’s world. What do you dream of for the future, on a personal level as well as for humanity?

My dream for the future is to live the present. It is only through one’s presence in this world that things can truly manifest themselves. I believe that unfortunately too often men and women are absent from their actions and caught up in their fears, illusions and desires. One just needs to focus in the present moment and understand that the simplest things are the most extraordinary ones. With this knowledge everyone can first change itself and the world would simply follow.
