Right where you are

Many people think the treasure they want in this world can only be found in other lands and not in their own land. Hence, they leave home and go into the world. Nothing wrong with this actually; and some people do go and come home with the treasure they seek. But the truth is even the home that they leave to go out has all that they go to seek.

What you are seeking is right where you are. See how well this poem conveys this message. It is titled Right where you are.

RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE

Is it money you seek?
It’s right where you are;
Is it love you seek?
It’s right where you are.
Is it excellent company you seek?
It’s right where you are.
The treasure you want
Is right where you are.
You don’t need to go out
To get it;
Just dig deeper where you are;
And if you don’t find it,
Dig a little deeper;
And dig deeper and deeper;
And keep on digging;
Until the well bursts open;
And fresh water gushes out.
No need to go out
In search of fresh water;
No need to go out
In search of treasure;
No need to go out
In search of love;
It’s right where you are.
