There is the American dream, which espouses that an individual can do this very thing. The American Dream, however, has more to do with financial well being than matters of the meaning of life. Coelho’s message has to do with the search for meaning and self-awareness. I might consider a Buddhist culture that encourages the freedom to explore the self.
