Yet, we are unhealthy in body and in soul We don't recognize that the wanting is something far deeper than hunger for food. It is a longing for something that will truly satisfy, that will make us truly happy and fulfilled. It is the way we were created: to be hungry, to be longing for something that will answer all of our needs. Yet, so often having no real guidance in finding our hearts' desire, we wander about aimlessly, seeking the satifaction in all the "subgroups" of happiness and fulfillment, which are merely signs pointing the way to what can truly satisfy.
In the "Wizard of Oz" Dorothy said one of the lessons she had learned was that if she ever goes out searching again for her heart's desire, she wouldn't have to look any further than her own back yard. She meant, I believe, her family and friends: Aunt Em, Uncle Henry, Hunk, Zeke and Hickory. And Toto too, of course, but then, she always had Toto with her.
