Recklessness and miracles January 11 2017 (troibun)

The postman finally delivered Paulo Coelho’s The Pilgrimage yesterday. Paulo was so anxious to meet his guide that he almost gave himself away to the first man he met at the well, a  cunning man who offered to find his sword for him.  Paulo found that idea tempting so he could return to Brazil and deal with his business. Finally his guide arrived asking him a question which was the password and Paulo responds with the keywords.

under blue skies
blinded by golden star
imminent clouds

under blue skies
under the rubble
children still hide

blinded by golden star
dreaming of miracles
unaware of demons

imminent clouds
providing storms
also lessons

Petrus, his guide warns him to be watchful for there will be more demons along the path. And then his guide gave Paulo a lesson on humility when they were discussing miracles. Petrus explains that the path to knowledge is not only open to intellectuals and thinkers but to everyone including the common people.

vanity clouds vision
on the path of knowledge
the heart sings
