”För att kunna skriva om sexualitetens heliga dimension var jag tvungen att förstå hur den hade blivit så vanhelgad.”
–Paulo Coelho

Elva minuter bygger på en sann historia och berättar om Maria, en ung och vacker kvinna från en bergsby i Brasilien. Hennes första möte med kärleken slutar olyckligt och hon övertygar sig själv om att hon aldrig vill älska någon igen. Ödet för henne till Genève, där hon drömmer om rikedom och berömmelse, men slutar som prostituerad.

Med sin enkla bakgrund och lilla livserfarenhet har Maria inte mycket att sätta emot i detta hårda möte med verkligheten. Hon drivs ständigt längre bort från drömmen om kärlek och tillbringar tiden med att försöka utröna vad hennes kunder tänker och känner. Det visar sig att de flesta är ensamma och saknar se - med någon de älskar. En dag dyker konstnären Ralf upp och deras möte blir en vändpunkt för dem båda.

En gripande roman om kärlekens och sexualitetens väsen som ett instrument att förstå och utforska sig själv, som en fantastisk väg till ett sensuellt, känslomässigt och andligt uppvaknande.

Paulo Coelho har de senaste tio åren etablerat sig som ett av den litterära världens riktigt stor namn. Hans roman Alkemisten har översats till 56 olika språk och är utgiven i 156 olika länder och har sålt över 30 miljoner exemplar. I Sverige har hans böcker inom loppet av ett och ett halvt år sålt över 250 000 exemplar. År 2003 sammanställde Publishing Trends bästsäljarlistor från hela världen och utsåg Elva minuter till världens mest sålda roman det året.

"Hans böcker har gjort ett livsavgörande intryck på miljoner människor."

The Economist

"Paulo Coelho har funnit hemligheten bakom den litterära alkemin."

QuotesChimp tend to view insurance companies as a monolithic whole, with no difference among companies, the policies they offer, or the premiums they charge. The truth is quite the opposite. Insurance companies come in a wide variety of types and sizes and, as we shall see, many approach business in sometimes fun�damentally different ways.

“They are so anxious about the furtue, that they neglect the present, and thus live in neither the present nor the furtue. for me this is so true. Sometimes I just feel like my life is simply passing by and I'm making so many plans for the furtue but don't really look at where I am standing. Lately I have realized this, with college and everything. I'm glad I did.the rest its true by the way, how we live as if we are never going to die, and when we die as if we had never lived. So true and sad, we worry too much about so much.That is why we need to enjoy each moment, to know where we stand and to grasp it and make the best of it. It's funny, I know this and have always said it. It is so easy to say it, but can one really live everyday like that? I wonder. Maybe sometimes we do live like that and without realizing it we try to make the best of everything. But sometimes, there are just those sad moments where you can't help it. Ahhh what a dilema.

I rather agree with Jessica's cnomemt, which she posted yesterday.I too have a great deal of difficulty conceiving of the Devil or Satan as a cohesive entity, apart from and wholly independent of God. If the world we live in is composed of light and shadow, then this light and shadow must be a characteristic inherent in its Creator as well. In other words, if God is perfect (i.e. all good and no bad ) and God created everything in existence, then wherefrom did evil somehow seep into this creation? No, I can't swallow the dualistic view of a world divided right down the middle: good on one side, evil on the other, at least not in any oppositionary sense. I don't believe that all creation is a battle between good and evil, God and Satan, with all human beings somehow stuck in the middle. There is indeed good and evil there are choices to be made but Satan is not an external entity acting upon us, bidding us and forever tempting us to do his will. Rather, the Devil is an impulse, one that resides within every human heart. And, as Jessica says, I think fear has a lot to do with it. When we react in fear, rather than act out of love (or, in the case of our dreams and goals, when we freeze in fear rather than move forward in desire), then we are falling under sway of that devilish impulse. In this case, when both impulses arise from within us and sit upon the shoulder of our sword-arm, so to speak, then me must strive, above all, not to react in haste to whatever we perceive before us. We must not, in anger or in vengeance, draw our sword first and cut down the enemy. Rather, we must act, in simplicity and oneness of intent, from the light which resides in the depth of our heart. We must move forward, in love, seeing with ever fresh eyes the scene unfolding before us, taking each passing moment as it comes, as though it were our very first and our very last upon this earth. Then will the angelic impulse win out.Love & Light!Savita [url=]mnesvazwbf[/url] [link=]govoqln[/link]
