In The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, there is a quote that says,

"When you want something with all your heart, that's when you are closest to the Soul of the world. It's always a positive force."

I'm stuck on trying to find the meaning behind this quote. I'd really appreciate any help!

    Here's a definition:

    "soul of the world
    Web definitions
    The world soul is, according to several systems of thought, an intrinsic connection between all living things on the planet, which relates to our world in much the same way as the soul is connected to the human body. ..."

    All beings strive for something. By intensely wanting something a person is most like everyone and everything else in the world.
