One of Yu’s disciples was talking to a disciple of Rinzai:
My master is a man capable of doing miracles, that is why he is respected by all his pupils. I have seen him do things far beyond our capabilities. And your master? What great miracles can he do?
My master’s greatest miracle is that he doesn’t need to display any great wonder, in order to show his pupils that he is a wise man.
Paulo Coelho is a Brazilian author who has sold more than 100 million books, which include 14 short story collections and the novel “The Alchemist.” He has been a fan of the Internet since the early 1990s. He spends at least three hours a day online, writing e-mails back and forth with his readers and posting photos on Flickr, MySpace and a blog.
Coelho’s online activities also include promoting pirated copies of his own books. Since 2005 he’s been directing his readers to an online site where they can download his books, in languages from German to Japanese, for free. “I always thought that when, at the beginning of your career, you strive to be read, you can’t change your mind later and become greedy about it.”
On a related note, if you are wanting to create more miracles in your life…
The Miracles Store is quite literally a store where you can “shop” for the miracles you want to invite into your life!
