I met a Gypsy woman; I crossed her palm with gold
She returned it all with interest, said “No fortune can be told.
You have power beyond imagining, your destiny is sown.
I’m the one now asking you-How could you not have known?”
It’s always been within you, there is nothing that you lack
Look no more outside yourself, move forward, don’t look back
No one said it would be easy, you’ll face challenges it’s true
Find the gold beneath your footsteps, a fortune known by few
Sought out the holy Guru upon the mountain high
He told me “seek no further”; that I should look inside
“In the center of your being is where the journey starts
You’ll find the answers that you seek on the road map of your heart.”
Found a teacher to advise me outside of Santa Fe
He shook his head and smiled at me and said “You’re on your way.”
“The key lies in forgiveness, not just others, but yourself.”
“The light that shines in everyone is the prize worth more than wealth.”
