One of my fondest childhood memories was watching The Wizard of Oz on our old black and white TV set. The scarecrow wanted a brain, the tin man wanted a heart and the lion wanted courage and Dorothy wanted to get back to Kansas and her family farm.

Like them, I wanted something I felt I lacked and looked outside of myself to find it. The scarecrow, the tin man and the lion all had the qualities and the gifts they were seeking but didn’t recognize they possessed them and instead looked outside themselves to the Wizard to give them what they were seeking.

In the end they discovered they were already whole and did not need anything, they were all “whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving harmonious and happy” like Frederick Andrews in The Master Key System lesson 9. They just needed to recognize their power and apply it.

Dorothy initially wanted to run away because she wanted the greener grass on the other side, it wasn’t until she was away from her home and family in Oz that she realized and appreciated the love of her home and family. What again she was looking for she already had.

I realize now that as Charles F. Haanel says in The Master Key System,

God is Spirit. Spirit is the creative principle of the Universe. Man is made in the image and likeness of God. Man is therefore a spiritual being. The only activity which spirit possesses is the power to think. Thinking is therefore a creative process. All form is therefore the result of the thinking process.

Charles Haanel, The Master Key System, Lesson 20

I now recognize that I am a part of the whole, and possess within me all the power I need to create the life I want. I only have to look within and not without and apply my power!
