Maktub by Paulo Coelho

October 30, 2010

The master says: “If a decision needs to be made, it is better to make it and deal with the consequences. You cannot know beforehand what those consequences will be. The arts of divination were developed in order to counsel people, never to predict the future. They provide good advice, but poor prophecy. “In one of the prayers that Jesus taught us, it says, ‘God’s will be done.’ When His will causes a problem, it also presents a solution.

If the arts of divination were able to predict the future, every soothsayer would be wealthy, married and content.”
