Motivation: The Alchemist Inspires Pharrell

When you really want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. –The Alchemist
Earlier this week, Pharrell sat down with Oprah and spoke about his solo success, from being a band geek from Virginia to one of the most talked about solo artists to date. This year is hands down his year. Although the interview had its high points – from him crying while watching others remake his song “Happy,” to discussing his own stance on gender equality – nothing resonated more for me than his life’s philosophy inspired by Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist
And it’s true. It is so (expletive) true. The idea that the universe conspires to help you achieve greatness is so profound and apparent. He and so many people alike, Jay-Z, Will Smith, India Arie, are the living embodiment of this philosophy. It is not about their celebrity status, money, record deals, or abundant resources. Those things are so small and trivial in comparison to the dreams they wanted to achieve and from what they demanded from the universe. We can all achieve greatness and it starts with the simple desire to just be. Be better. Be great. Be our dream. That is all it takes. Make a decision and own it. If you desire something more from yourself and feel like you can be at the pinnacle of greatness, the whole universe will move and allow you to be just that.
And it changed my whole life because I realized all the people who conspired to get me to this place. It will change your life… you have to be unafraid to dream and be even more brave and gallant about blue printing what you envisioned. You gotta be brave about that. And wow, it became clear to me. – Pharrell on reading The Alchemist
Error of Man 2 Pharmakos
In the garden God gave us dominion over “all the earth,” which includes plants, (Gen 1:26). Unfortunately, because of our quest for independence from God through “The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil,” many are being enslaved and led to death by the very things God gave us dominion over: Trees, plants, and herbs that make up our food and drugs (legal and illegal). How is the enemy using “Big Pharma” to control the masses? Why are preventable diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney failure, and heart disease so rampant in this generation? Better yet, if God desires that His people prosper and be in good health, (3 John 2), why is the church so sick? The teaching in this DVD, Error of Man 2: Pharmakos, is not only saving souls but saving lives! In this powerful expose, G. Craige Lewis takes you on his personal 4 year journey of weight loss, healing, and deliverance, resulting in the revelation God gave him for this powerful teaching. Your soul will prosper, and your life will be changed as you apply the principles in this most important DVD. —Send Donation
