Life can easily become stagnant, mundane, and monotonous, but that changes depending on what we choose to see. So each thing has to transform itself into something better, and to acquire a new Personal Legend, until, someday, the Soul of the World becomes one thing only. DESIRE: Dreams make life interesting; when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. It is the alchemist. I am only going to point you in the direction of your treasure. And I wanted to share this treasure with the world. While traveling, Santiago begins listening to the desert and discovering the Soul of the World.

The caravan leader gathers the travelers together and tells them that tribal warfare prevents them from continuing their journey.

Thieves beat Santiago and rob him of his money. After he tells them of his dream, though, one of the thieves recounts his own dream about a buried treasure in the sacristy of an abandoned church.
