Significance of difficulties by Paulo Coelho

Standard

A man made a promise to carry a cross to the top of a mountain if a certain wish of his was satisfied.

God granted him what he asked for.

He had the cross made, and set out on his climb. After a few days he found that the cross weighed more than he had reckoned. He borrowed a saw to cut off a good section of the wood. On reaching the top of the mountain he noted that, separated by a gulf, there was another mountain.

Over on the other side, everything was peace and tranquility, but he needed a bridge to get over there.

He tried to use the cross-but it was a bit too short.

And then he realized that the piece he had cut off was exactly what was missing to enable him to cross the abyss.

About my2twobits

I am a 40+ male PR executive from India. I have deliberately kept my identity hidden so that I can freely, frankly open my heart and share my feelings about people I know from work and outside. Hope you enjoy the resulting emotional free-flow in my posts. I do fear and dread the day when my identity is disclosed and I may be forced to totally delete this blog, unless of course a publisher comes with an interesting offer ;)
