Название:На берегу Рио-Пьедра... Автор: Пауло Коэльо Повествование ведётся от первого лица. Язык простой и понятный, незамысловатый. Но иногда важные вещи писатель может сказать доступными словами, без стилистических и синтаксических извращений. Много философских рассуждений. Иногда такие расклады могут нагнать скуку, но, если книга попадёт под нужное настроение, то можно получить удовольствие. #bookworm #bookstagram #booklover #bookme #instabook #instaread #booknerd #bookporn #booknow #bookaholic #booklove #книголюб #книгоман #книжныйчервь #книжныйманьяк #инстакнига #букстаграм #паулокоэльо #paulocoelho #книжныйотзыв #bookreview #namargemdoriopiedraeusenteiechorei #наберегуриопьедраселаяизаплакала

Happy Weekend, People!! Hope everyone had a great week? This was one of those books which I read last year. It is Hippie by one of my favorite authors @paulocoelho . ... . The book is drawn from the experience of the best selling author himself. It takes us back in time to relive the dreams of a generation that longed for peace and dared to challenge the established social order. I enjoyed the read and as you can see the cover is beautiful 😍. I thought it will be a shame not to share it. So, here it is ☺ . ...

To learn about yourself, explore the world around you. Drawing on the rich experience of his own life, bestselling author Paulo Coelho, well known for his book THE ALCHEMIST, takes us back in time to relive the dreams of a generation that longed for peace and dared to challenge the established social order. In HIPPIE, he tells the story of Paulo, a skinny Brazilian with a goatee and long hair, setting off on a journey in search of a deeper meaning for his life. He travels on the famous ‘Death Train to Bolivia’, then on to Peru, later hitchhiking through Chile and Argentina. In the famous Dam Square in Amsterdam he finds young people playing music, while discussing sexual liberation, the expansion of consciousness and the search for an inner truth. There he meets Karla, a Dutch woman in her twenties who has been waiting to find the ideal companion to accompany her on the fabled hippie trail to Nepal. Together with their fellow traveller, they embark on a trip aboard the Magic Bus, heading across Europe and Central Asia to Kathmandu. For everyone, the journey is transformative. For Paulo and Karla it is a life-defining love story that leads to choices that will set the course of the rest of their lives.

✬ Undoubtedly one of my favourite author! ✬ The Alchemist was the first (serious) book that I read and I was overwhelmed with what it taught me. Even today, I re-read it only to ignite the same feeling which I felt 12 years back as a high school kid. . . ✬ Since the last few years I’ve read atleast 2-3 of his books every year and they still haven’t ceased to surprise me. One of my other favourites is “Like the flowing river” which I’d endorse with the blink of an eye. It’s beautifully written and coveys a simple yet profound meaning. . . ✬ Just taking this moment to appreciate @paulocoelho! ✬ QOTD: Which is your fav work by this author? Do you plan to read any book of his in case you haven’t? . . #paulocoelho #novel #reading #reader #instaread #instablog #books #instagram #bibliophile #bookstagram #books #booklover #book #booksofinstagram #readers #readersofinstagram #fiction #nonfiction #novel #lovereading #read #goodreads #instabook #biblio #readerlife #reviewer #authorappreciation

“Passion makes a person stop eating, sleeping, working, feeling at peace. A lot of people are frightened because, when it appears, it demolishes all the old things it finds in its path. No one wants their life thrown into chaos. That is why a lot of people keep that threat under control, and are somehow capable of sustaining a house or a structure that is already rotten. They are the engineers of the superseded. Other people think exactly the opposite: they surrender themselves without a second thought, hoping to find in passion the solutions to all their problems. They make the other person responsible for their happiness and blame them for their possible unhappiness. They are either euphoric because something marvelous has happened or depressed because something unexpected has just ruined everything. Keeping passion at bay or surrendering blindly to it – which of these two attitudes is the least destructive? I don’t know.” – Paulo Coelho #paulocoelho #life #quote #book #writer #quoteoftheday #photoby🙋 #photographer #filters #sky #quitesunnyday #blackandwhite #🌳 #🍀 #🍃🌾

A leitura é de #paulocoelho, mas o #poema é de #viniciusdemoraes [...] Se sentir saudade e quiser falar comigo, fale com Jesus e eu ouvirei. Espero estar com Ele o suficiente para continuar sendo útil a você, lá onde estiver. E se tiver vontade de escrever alguma coisa sobre mim, diga apenas uma frase: Foi meu amigo, acreditou em mim e me quis perto de Deus". Aí então derrame uma lágrima. Eu não estarei presente para enxugá-la, mas não faz mal. Outros amigos farão isso em meu lugar. E, vendo-me bem substituído, irei cuidar de minha nova tarefa no céu. Mas, de vez em quando, dê uma espiadela na direção de Deus. Você não me verá, mas eu ficaria muito feliz vendo você olhar para Ele. E, quando chegar sua vez de ir para o Pai, aí, sem nenhum véu a separar a gente, vamos viver, em Deus, a amizade que aqui nos preparou para Ele. Você acredita nessas coisas? Sim? Então ore para que nós dois vivamos como quem sabe que vai morrer um dia, e que morramos como quem soube viver direito. Amizade só faz sentido se traz o céu para mais perto da gente, e se inaugura aqui mesmo o seu começo. Eu não vou estranhar o céu...Sabe por que? Porque...ser seu amigo já é um pedaço dele! Vinicius de Moraes #serseuamigo

I’m currently reading „The Alchemist“ with the loml and I bought the book second hand. This message was written on the inside of its cover and made me feel warm and nostalgic and as if I were in a movie, especially since the names are so cliche lmao. Gifting someone a book is the same to me as showing them one of your favourite songs. You show them a part of your soul. I wonder what happened to the both of them ! #collage #thealchemist #paulocoelho #books #letters #secondhand #browngirldiaries

A água da loucura Um poderoso feiticeiro querendo destruir um reino, colocou uma poção mágica no poço onde todos os seus habitantes bebiam. Quem tomasse aquela água, ficaria louco. Na manhã seguinte, a população inteira bebeu, e todos enlouqueceram. O rei – que tinha um poço só para si e sua família, onde o feiticeiro não conseguira entrar – tentou controlar a população. Baixou uma série de medidas de segurança e saúde pública, mas não havia mais policiais ou inspetores, pois eles também haviam bebido a água envenenada. Quando os habitantes daquele reino tomaram conhecimento dos decretos, ficaram convencidos de que o rei enlouquecera, e agora estava escrevendo coisas sem sentido. Aos gritos, foram até o castelo e exigiram que renunciasse à coroa. Desesperado, o rei prontificou-se a deixar o trono, mas a rainha o impediu, dizendo: “vamos agora até a fonte, e beberemos também. Assim, ficaremos iguais a eles”. E assim foi feito: o rei e a rainha beberam a água da loucura, e começaram imediatamente a dizer coisas sem sentido. Na mesma hora, os seus súditos se arrependeram: agora que o rei estava mostrando tanta sabedoria, por que não deixá-lo governando o país? O país continuou em calma, embora seus habitantes se comportassem de maneira muito diferente de seus vizinhos. E o rei pode governar até o final dos seus dias. #veronicadecidemorrer #paulocoelho #filosofia #conceito #loucura

So here’s the thing..No, I did not go on some romantic getaway with a secret lover (guys, seriously? Lol) I went to the Dominican on. my. own. Let’s be real, I am single A-F. I am at the age where if I want to go somewhere I can’t rely on friends getting time off or even wanting to go to the same place I do..so why would I just not go because I have nobody to go with? Why would I miss out on travelling somewhere I WANT to and CAN go to just because I’m solo? I have heard SO many people tell me in the past week that it’s “daring” of me or “brave” or that they could never go somewhere alone like that...WHY?! You don’t NEED someone to be with you to lay on the beach & relax. You don’t NEED someone to be with you to watch the sunrise from the beach. Sure, it’d be nice...but it’s not necessary. Why hold yourself back from traveling & experiencing new things because you have nobody to go with..you SHOULD experience these things! And if you experience them alone then you’re also learning new things about yourself! I’m not saying go hop on a plane now and travel across the world alone. Maybe start small. Go to a movie alone. Go to dinner alone and keep your phone off or in your pocket/purse! Make eye contact with people, start small talk, you will meet knew people and learn new things. It may sound scary to some but I promise you it’s not something you will EVER regret! Of course I’m also not saying ONLY travel alone because you can also make some amazing memories when you travel with friends ( uh remember my Cali trip with @missarahf lol)..but don’t ever think that’s the only way to travel or make memories! Quite frankly, if I can’t enjoy my own company how could expect someone else to enjoy my company? “Travel is never a matter of money but of courage.” - #paulocoelho 🌴🥥🌊☀️ • • • #travel #solotravel #inspire #experiencetravel #travelgram #travelholic #traveller #solotraveller #islandlife #dominicanrepublic #riu #riurepublica #republicadominicana #caribbean

Tag 18 der #lesejurylesechallenge Klassiker. Ich lese ja ehrlich gesagt gar keine typischen Klassiker wie Shakespeare & Co. Mir sind die alten Bücher einfach zu anstrengend zu lesen. Außerdem lese ich einfach gerne Geschichten die mich unterhalten und entspannen. Deswegen interpretiere ich das Thema #klassiker mal ganz frei. Ich finde Paulo Coelho ist ja schon so etwas wie ein Autor der Klassiker. "Veronika beschließt zu sterben" habe ich geliebt und auf "Untreu" darf ich mich noch freuen.

Alchemy has fascinated me for a long time. The legendary philosopher's stone that alchemy strives to create has appeared in multiple stories through various mediums, folklore and spiritual self-help manuals alike. It is a metaphorical yearning for perfection through transformation, from lead to gold, from impure to pure, from transitory to permanent. I was first introduced to this legend through Paulo Coelho’s Alchemist. Later on, I learnt about the Arthurian wizard, Merlin, who was also considered to be an alchemist by many. In recent times, the anime ‘Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood’ delved deep into the myth and the powers of the stone. Closely associated with medieval magic, the elixir-granting stone also made an appearance in the Harry Potter series. I am sure the cameo of Nicholas Flamel in the upcoming movie, Crimes of Grindelwald will only add more to this incredible myth. Until recently, I believed alchemy was entirely a western science. However, ‘Immortal’ by @krishnaudayasankar can be credited to alter that view. It explores the possibility of the practice of alchemy in ancient India which only a few have known about. The book review is coming soon. ________ #mythology #history #immortal #alchemy #crimesofgrindelwald #futllmetalalchemist #philosophersstone #nicholasflamel #paulocoelho #alchemist #deepakchopra #harrypotter #bookstagramindia #igreadsindia #indiareads #indianliterature #indianreaders #indianwriters #indianauthors #storytelling #worldliterature #mumbaibookstagram #speculativefiction #fantasy #mythologicalfiction #thriller #mythohistory #mahabharat #ashwathama #krishnaudayasankar
