Please remember that the scarecrow was the smartest of them all.

Please remember that the tinman felt and cried the most.

Please remember that when push came to shove it was the lion who exhibited the most courage.

Please remember that Dorothy never left her bed.

Please remember that the entire odyssey was a dream that was meant to awaken personal empowerment.

The scarecrow already had a brain.

The tinman already had a heart.

The lion already had courage.

Dorothy was already at home. She already had the power within herself to recognize that fact. The power wasn’t in the shoes. The power was in her heart. In her wisdom. In her courage to embody it. She went through that entire dream just to realize that there was nothing else she needed. From hurling apples to flying monkey’s. From poppy narcolepsy to wicked witches. The power was always, already within.

While we have mostly made God a man behind a curtain pulling levers God is the Presence, the Power inside of each of us. We don’t have to go to Oz to get it. It is already here. It is the incessant searching for something beyond us that keeps us from knowing.

Please remember that.

In a moment of awakened awareness and startling revelation we may ask ourselves why we didn’t know that this power already existed as the truth of our being?

And the Cosmic Glenda giggles sweetly before chiding us: “my dears, you wouldn’t have believed me.”

You already are filled with wisdom, love, courage. Stop searching. Stop struggling. You’re already home.

Please remember that.
