I think I have a kind of balance in how I view the world, sometimes I think it’s coming looking for me, other days I see the angel’s wing on everyone.

Not so easy always to be neutral and consider the world without the “spectacles”.

But I have a belief that the world acts back the way you behave towards it, and if you have a positive view of the world, it is more likely to get something good back.

When the shepherd boy in the alchemist says / thinks this sentence, he’s just come to Tangier and was being robbed by a peer, while a coffee-owner tries to warn him. The shepherd boy first of all do not understand because of language problems, but also because he chooses to see the peer as a friend and not as the thief he is. He did not think he would be robbed.

That’s probably the case with most of us. We see the world in a slightly different angle than what is actually reality. What the reality is I am not getting into, that will be taking all night to read, but I think we often get something nice back if we add the goodwill rather than if we are sour and believe that everyone is looking for us to keep us down.
Right?
-Sometimes they still will be coming after us, but when that happens; just smile!
