Always we Hope – Lao Tzu

Always we hope someone else has the answer, some other place will be better, some other time, it will 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 centre 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 centre 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.
