“Wherever I lay my hat is my home” Marvin Gaye
Home Is Where I Lay My Hat
Currently I am back in my old home town of Parker, Colorado visiting my family for a few weeks. It’s been really great to see my family, especially eating my mom’s amazing Mexican food, but to be honest I am already ready to go back to South Korea.
So you may be wondering if Korea is my new home, the answer is yes and no. I have realized while being back how much I really do love living in Korea, but it does not feel like home either, at least permanently not yet.
For many people this sense of not having any definite roots somewhere can be greatly unsettling. I feel that the reason I am feeling greatly at ease with just roaming the planet is because home is no longer a physical location for me.
On my little journey of penetrating life’s mysteries I have learned to really get in-tune with my inner being and in doing so, my external world has taken on much less significance. Home is where the heart is, and for me that has become a reality. So now no matter where I go I am always at home.
Learn to find that place inside you that is deeply at ease with life, the part of you that is never shaken by the outside world. If you can let those energies become alive within you, to be always available, you will be enjoying life no matter where you find yourself or whatever situations come your way.
Coming Back Home
When you think less and feel more, you will be enjoying life from moment to moment and use your intelligence to respond to life with an answer that is fresh and new. Whenever you feel like you are drifting away and getting caught up in the madness of the world, in the madness of your mind, gently remind yourself to come back home, to come back to your heart.
Getting in-tune with your heart you will become aware of the subtle energies that reside in your body. So whenever you feel lost in your past or imagining your future, bring your attention to the sensation of your body, of your heart, of your breath.
This is home and being home is beautiful. Life Is always knocking on your door, so if you can remain at home you can open the door to life’s infinite possibilities no matter where you may be.
Ultimately deep fulfillment does not come from your mind but from your heart, life after all is not meant to be thought about, but to be felt, to be lived. It’s time to live your life. God speed my friend.
