10 SEC READ: Moses
by Paulo Coelho
Moses parts the waters
“Sometimes we get used to what we see in the movies, and end up forgetting the true story,” a friend said to me once while we were looking at the port of Miami, “Do you remember the Ten Commandments?”
Of course I remembered. Moses, played by Charlton Heston, at one point he raises his wand and with that action the waters were divided and the Jewish people walked through it.
“In the Bible it is different,” said my friend. “In the Bible, God orders Moses to do this by saying, ‘the children of Israel are to go forward,’ and only after they start walking does Moses raise his wand to part the Red Sea.
“Courage in the path is what makes the path manifests itself.”
