SMILING

Do you always smile?
my student asked.
No, but what makes me
smile is when I find that
what I am looking for
is already in me.

It is like Dorothy wanting to go home.
She already had the power.
She already had what she needed
to go home
I have to laugh
at myself
when I realize that
I already knew
what I was searching to learn.

What if I started by looking inside
instead of outside
listening to the wisdom in me
instead of looking for the wisdom
externally?
What if I journeyed within
connected to my internal Spirit
and never had to leave home
to find what I already had?
