What determines who we become in life? It’s the age-old debate of Nurture versus Nature. Is our life shaped by Freewill or Determinism? The answer was, is, and will always be freewill. There is irrefutable evidence from every field of life that we create our life by the choices we make. We have witnessed disenfranchised people of every parentage overcome staggering odds to turn their dreams into reality.
The Universe is a structure of balance. It is comprised of elaborate systems of equilibrium, from the quantum to the cosmos. There are particles and antiparticles; matter and anti-matter; mass and energy. Since humans are made of molecules, atoms, protons, electrons, neutrons, quarks and gluons, and so forth, we are a part of the Universe’s structure of balance. For us, this equilibrium is maintained by Karma—the universal law of cause and effect.
Within the pages of this book are the answers to life from Humanity's greatest thinkers.

--What is our purpose in life?
--Why do bad things happen to us?
--Is there a god?

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.
