“The Mystery of Discovery”
"background-color: white; line-height: 19.2px; text-align: center;">
by Paulo Coelho

“Tonight, before leaving, I’m going to spend time sorting
through the pile of things I never had the patience to put in
order. And I will find that
a little of my history is there. 
"line-height: 19.2px;">All the letters, the notes, cuttings and
receipts will take on their own life and have strange stories to
tell me– about the past and about the
future. 
All the
different things in the world, all the roads travelled, all the
entrances and exits of my life.

I am going to put on a shirt I often wear and, for the first
time, I am going to notice how it was made.  "line-height: 19.2px;">I am going to imagine the hands that wove
the cotton and the river where the fibres of the plant were
born. 
I will
understand that all those now invisible things are a part of the
history of my shirt.

And even the things I am accustomed to– like the sandals
which, after long use, have become an extension of my feet– will be
clothed in the mystery of discovery.  "line-height: 19.2px;">Since I am heading off into the future, I
will be helped by the scuff marks left on my sandals from when I
stumbled in the past.

"background-color: white; line-height: 19.2px; text-align: justify;">
May everything my hand touches and my eyes see and my mouth
tastes be different, but the same.  "line-height: 19.2px;">That way, all those things will cease to be
a still life and instead will explain to me why they have been with
me for such a long time; and they will reveal to me the miracle of
re-encountering emotions worn smooth by
routine.
"background-color: white; line-height: 19.2px; text-align: justify;">

"background-color: white; line-height: 19.2px; text-align: justify;">
I will drink some tea that I have never tried before because
others told me it tasted horrible.
"background-color: white; line-height: 19.2px; text-align: justify;">

"background-color: white; line-height: 19.2px; text-align: justify;">
I will walk down a street I have never walked down before
because others told me it was totally without
interest. 
And I will find out whether or not I
would like to go back there.”
