A Special Place

Have you ever desired to go to some place of great beauty only to feel, alas, it is too far away.

Do you know that all over the Earth there are places like this. Sometimes they are recognized for their beauty, other times they are obscured - not easily seen - hidden but possible to find.

How do you know that you are in a place that is right for you? You will always be - almost but not quite overwhelmed by the feeling of welcome, love, support, nurturance and yes - home - even if it is not your physical home on Earth.

These places can be anywhere for there are so many of us we need them to be many places. Sometimes they are places meant to call us home. Other times which is more frequent there are places to activate home in our bodies, for home is not only a place that is a building, a town, friends, companions, lovers, family.

Home is a feeling in our hearts and bodies where we are accepted, loved and cherished for being exactly who we are and with the feeling of home we can accept, love and cherish all other beings regardless of their appearance, shape, size and temperament.

It is a place of absolute safety, a place where there is only home within you and others. There are hundreds of thousands of places like that on Earth. Sometimes these places get to be known as special spiritual places, other times they remain unknown and obscure - perhaps known to a select few or even just one.

Sometimes they're not even for human beings but the animals migrate there or come and go near there.

Know that it is natural for all of us to want and desire that feeling of home. I'd like to suggest the following Living Prayer. You could say, "I am asking to feel physically in my body and all around and about me the physical feeling of home and to feel that wherever I go that this feeling will be seeded so that others can have their own feeling of home - that this will occur in the most loving and benevolent way for me and all."

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

I appreciate the message here which suits me well, and the timing of the message on the eve of my intention to relocate. I would do well to remember that the true home I desire is within me, and the physical location of my body is but a complement to that and not a cure.
Many thanks for your words Robert in this entry and all.

Steve, I appreciate your venture to territories beyond your immediate horizon. Remember that your goals and aspirations are tied directly to your audience who is waiting hungrily for the breakfast of your art.

The fit in a suit of clothes is most comfortable when the body welcomes it - wouldn't you say? Thank you for your comment.
