H.O.M.E.

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 6:15 am

I don’t think there is a more powerful magnet on earth than home.

Even if you can’t go home again, as Thomas Wolfe suggests, you want to.

We’ll travel through rain, sleet and snow to get there for the shelter and safety we feel when we arrive.

How many stories have you read about animals finding their way home under the most unbelievable circumstances?

Given the choice, what percentage of people would choose to die in a hospital?

Home is a special place, even if it’s a discarded, cardboard refrigerator box.

Look at the current rate of frustration of people; I’ll bet if someone does the math, they’ll find the increase in rate is proportionate to the rate of foreclosures. Home is a powerfully emotional place.

I believe our draw to a physical home is an outward manifestation of our draw to our internal home – that safe place where everything is taken care of.

Even when we are lost, we can feel its draw. We innately know there is a safe haven within that’s beneath all the din of our daily lives. We accidentally find it once in awhile and then lose our way again, but we never forget the special feeling of our internal home.

We want to get back there but we don’t know how. The secret is locked up in the word “Home.”

Think of home as an acronym – H.O.M.E.

HALT: Stop what you are doing.

OBSERVE: Notice what’s actually going on.

MEDITATE: Give full attention to your observation.

EXPERIENCE: Feel the “hominess” of the present moment.

The peace and tranquility of home is unmatched by anything we can manufacture in our surface lives. Home has always been and will always be an inward journey. The route there is spelled out for us – H.O.M.E.

 

All the best,

John
