A RIDE HOME

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Many people devote many lifetimes on Earth searching for ways to escape from Earth or to transcend the reality of the physical universe.  There are a thousand names for “heaven” but there is apparently no proven path to get there… perhaps it’s not a destination?
Or, maybe each Being is already “home” and “heaven” is a state of being we create and perceive for ourselves….

UNIVERSE WITHIN

YOU ARE THE POWER               “You’ve always had the power to go back to Kansas” — Glinda

                “Oh Dear! That’s too wonderful to be true!” — Dorothy

                “Now those magic slippers will take you home in two seconds. Just close your eyes and think to yourself, ‘There’s no place like home’.” — Glinda

                “Then why didn’t you tell her before”? — The Scarecrow

                “Because she wouldn’t have believed me.  She had to learn it for herself.”– Glinda

                “If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own back yard, because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with.” — Dorothy in ‘The Wizard of Oz”

Like Dorothy in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ we are creatures of our own design. We live in universes created by our own agreements and imagination. We are inside the Physical Universe looking out to find the origin of our being. We long for a place we feel certain must exist; a place where there is no trouble. We wait for wizards and witches to show us the way home. Yet we fear to close our eyes and click our heels to see the Universe Within.

Our journey home begins at the source of the rainbow; shining light upon our own eternal, ethereal selves.”
