Today's Truth and Beauty: That which I seek from without is already within. En♥, -me!

Jean Houston said while speaking with Oprah Winfrey about her response to people who regard her as a guru, "...But in my definition, guru is spelled: G, U R U." Classic! The same sentiment is echoed in the self-love and empowerment anthem, "The Greatest Love of All" when Whitney Houston sings, "Everybody's searching for a hero. People need someone to look up to. I never found anyone who fulfilled my needs. A lonely place to be, and so I learned to depend on me." There are those of us who put a lot of effort into finding the perfect teacher, source of wisdom, love, guidance, and encouragement. We search outside of ourselves for someone (or something) to show us the way. And it almost seems like just when we get comfortable with trusting the instructional bird that our ignorance and excitement have convinced us that we have secured, it flies away. We're left lonely and looking for a new guide to come and accompany us on our path. The truth and beauty is in comprehending that while we are searching for our one pre-appointed bird to show up and stay in our hand for the entire journey, we actually have two birds waiting to awaken in the bushes of our own soul. We already have (and are) what we are looking to receive.
