Always we hope

someone else has the answer

Some other place will be better

some other time

it will all turn out.


This is it.

No one else has the answer.

No other place will be better.

and it has already turned out.


At the center of your being you have the answer.

you know who you are and you know what you want.


There is no need

to run outside

for better seeing.


Nor to peer from a window


Rather abide at

the center of your being.

for the more you leave it

the less you learn.


Search your heart

and see

the way to do

is to be.


Lao Tzu
