A Lesson From Glenda
“Will you help me, can you help me,” asks Dorothy.
“You don’t need my help anymore, my dear. You’ve always had the power to go back to Kansas,” says Glenda.
And scarecrow asked, “Why didn’t you tell her that before?”
“Because she wouldn’t have believed me. She had to learn it for herself.“ says Glenda.
And Tinman asks, “what have you learned Dorothy?” And Dorothy says, “Well I think it wasn’t enough to just want to see Uncle Henry and Auntie Em. And if I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own backyard because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it, to begin with. Is that right?” she asked Glenda. “That’s all it is!” says Glenda.
And scarecrow says “But that’s so easy! I should have thought of it for you!”
And Tinman says, “And I should have felt it in my heart.” Glenna says, “No, she had to find it out for herself. Now those magic slippers will take you home in two seconds!”
I don’t know about you, but I’m having one of those “there’s no place like home moments” Coming home to my own heart feels amazing. How could I have strayed so far for so long? It’s that feeling like you’re just waking up from a bad dream. What we seek is not outside of us. We need to look no further than our own hearts for direction. Then let that be our navigation system in cooperation with everything else that is.
