What is the Lesson from ‘The Alchemist?’

The AlchemistImage by Cayusa via FlickrTo me, it is that you may have everything you are looking for right where you are, but you might not know it.
Therefore, you often have to get out into the wider world to realize that the treasures you are searching for are in the place you started. However, without the journey you may never realize this. You may spend your entire life jealous of people living in other parts of the world who you believe are better off than you.
So, to truly realize what you have, you have to leave where you are for a little while to have some adventures. Then one day, you will realize that it is time to go back home, because everything you need is already there.
