Ultimate Happiness Lesson – The Wise Man and the Shopkeeper’s Boy (The Alchemist)
The story of shopkeeper’s boy in the Book the Alchemist teaches us a very important happiness lesson that, if applied in our lives, would change the way we see the world and life in general.
Paulo Coelho tells us in the Alchemist about a boy who went in search of wise man in order to know the truth about happiness.
The wise man does not answer the young boy immediately, however, he tells him to go look around the castle and the palace. He also gave him a teaspoon with two drops of oil on it and told him to make sure he does not spill them. (make sure to check out my vlog: Ultimate happiness lesson)
This story carries a very deep happiness lesson that is represented by the palace, the people surrounding the wise man, and more importantly the two drops of oil.
The main happiness lesson would be that true happiness is the result of the balance between our inner self and outer surroundings such as friendship and people.
