I’ve recently been reading some books by Paulo Coelho including, â€˜The Alchemistâ€™ and â€˜By the river Piedra I sat down and weptâ€™
I have found his books a great inspiration written from the heart and I would certainly recommend them. The latest book of his Iâ€™m reading is called â€˜The Zahirâ€™ which is all about love and what it means to follow your heart. Below is a passage from this book on relationships and communication.
â€œThe most important thing in all human relationships is conversation, but people donâ€™t talk any more, they donâ€™t sit down to talk and listen. They go to the theatre, the cinema, watch television, listen to the radio, read books, but they almost never talk. If we want to change the world, we have to go back to a time when warriors would gather round a fire and tell storiesâ€?
