The classic tale of "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coehlo is a tale of following our dreams. We come through struggles and setbacks, and those are the places we grow. Those challenges are grist for the mill. Writers and musicians often find inspiration during times of strife (not to discredit the happy inspirations!). Athletes use weight and tension to grow strong. In yoga, we are moving through a constant practice, mindfully noticing the areas that need work so we can eventually realize our peak pose. None of the successes are immediate, and thankfully so, as the journey is where we pick up new knowledge.
The main character of "The Alchemist" explains that our individual contributions to the world can nourish our shared existence and the Soul of the World. He continues that when we act out of Love, we always strive to become better than we were. Following our dreams is a supreme act of Love. We persevere even when the universe tests us over and over and over, and in doing so, we cultivate more beauty and love in the world.
Only rarely do we come across someone who touches our life in such a profound way that our Soul perks up with the excitement of a new growth. I was honored to have met Orion Freeman, the singing/songwriting Seeker from just beyond
Philadelphia, at a time that my life needed a little light - something hopeful to remind me that I wasn't stuck in a hole, I just hadn't committed to standing up yet. Some symbol of following my dreams even when the path was indiscernably
Orion is a career musician seeking to create a movement towards Love and Freedom through his message. His journey has been and is one of the struggles all musicians face, as told through the filters of his own life story.
The birthing process of the Divine Game, Orion Freeman's debut LP, is a story of commitment to a dream. The songs are the message of half a lifetime's lessons. The album is the product of a year's dedication and work, a complete labor of love. Now, this celebration of its release is the greatest expression of a dream come true, and you are invited to join in the revelry.
“When you really want something to happen, the whole world conspires to help you achieve it.” -Paulo Coehlo, The Alchemist
