Deeply miss home, that’s the main characteristic of suffering souls. Some even travelling around the world, simply to find home that they seek.
As clearly concluded by the beautiful book “geography of bliss”, those who find no home inside, will never find home outside.
For that reason, the earlier you build beautiful home inside the better. Forgiving the past is the first step. Self-acceptance is the second.
Learn to meditate is the most recommended step. Simply rest the mind in this moment as it is. Whatever the blessing of this moment, simply smile.
Deeply realize that everything come and go. Like clouds. And you’re not the clouds, you’re the witnessing sky. Consequently, mind getting wider and wider.
Till one day enlightenment make the mind as wide as space. From that moment, you’ll directly understand that the true home is “pure awareness”.
Anything that happen, any memories are like colors on the tv screen. But those colors does not change the color of tv screen (pure awareness).
The bad past, the traumatic childhood, the worst failures do not affect the true home of pure awareness. It’s simply there as it is.
That’s the part of you that never die and never born. The Hindus called it as satchittananda. When awareness (sat) bring light to mind (chit), everything is bliss (ananda).
The Buddhist called it enlightenment. The left wing is wisdom, the right wing is compassion. And death is like the broken egg of eagle.
As soon as egg is broken in the right time, you will naturally fly to the realm of Nirvana. Again, that’s the true home. Welcome home beautiful souls.
