Gifts and Keys

“Brains!” the Scarecrow scatters requests …
“Heart!” the Tin Man rusts with tears of woe …
“Courage!” agonizes the Lion with fright …
“Home sweet Home!” implores Dorothy …


On a journey to distant places
Along the yellow brick road
Answers sought from wiser ones


All possess the very gifts sought …

Same for


Search within the domain of
Higher Self and Spirit …
Stop, listen, trust, grasp …
We were divinely created
with the keys within

Acting despite fear is true courage
Seeking answers within reveals true insight
Compassion and balance exposes depth of love
Happiness and gratitude reveals the keys within


“Brains” for the Scarecrow
“Heart” for the Tin Man
“Courage” for the Lion
“Home, Happiness and Love” for Dorothy

“Courage, Heart, Brains”
Rolled into one – all within
Divine creation: You


Enjoy the journey …
Live happily ever after …
Discovering …

The Divinely Perfect: YOU!
