Home sweet home?

Some people say they miss their home a lot when they are away from home. Some people say that they don't like their home, or they are not happy at home, and they want to go away from their home.

Everyone wants to find where they 'belong'.

The individual consciousness might mistake this egoistic mind and all the experiences through its function of the perception of names and forms as itself, but this mind and all the perception of names and forms are perishable.

The egoistic mind might take the physical body, the conditions, the abilities, the family, the friends, the career, the wealth, the health, the house, the clothings, the books, the knowledge, the belongings, the relationships, the beliefs, the thinking, the feelings, the ideas, the achievements, or the entire life existence as its home, but all these are perishable.

As long as we are attached to a 'home' that will be filled with certain qualities of names and forms that we think where we 'belonged', we are not free. As this home that has certain qualities, names and forms, conditioned by impermanence, and is limited by time, space and causation.

If we realize our real 'home', then wherever we are, this 'home' is always there. It is nameless and formless, beyond qualities, impermanence, conditions, limitations, time, space and causation.

We don't 'belong' to this 'home', nor does this 'home' belong to 'I'.

Without the idea of possessiveness or belonging, we allow all beings and everything to exist in this 'home', sharing this endless unlimited space in this impermanent existence of beings which is limited and conditioned by time, space and causation.

If we say, this 'home' is 'ours', we are not free yet. We will be bound by the desire to be 'protecting' this 'object' or 'quality' that we call 'our home'.

It is 'home' for all beings with different qualities of names and forms, there's no discrimination. It is the origin or source of all beings. There's no possessiveness. There's no expectation that any beings should think or behave in certain ways. Every beings are free to be what they are and how they are.

This 'home' is not the home that we call 'my' home which is limited by impermanence, qualities, elements, time, space and causation, and conditioned by 'my' personality, likings, ideas, thinking, beliefs, desires, creativities, styles and tastes, which hosts most of 'my' things, 'my' belongings, 'my' possessions, 'my' memories, 'my' accumulated wealth, 'my' interests, 'my' studies, 'my' past achievements, and 'my' beloved family and friends.

This real 'home' is indestructible. Fire, wind, water, earth and space cannot touch it or destroy it. It's always there.

The moment we let go of the ego, the 'I', and all that belongs to 'I', the real 'home' full of unconditional and unlimited love and peace is right here. Wherever we are is home. It never leaves us. We never leave home.

Om shanti.
