Title: Come Home to Yourself
Summary: Come home to yourself to heal the first wound at the core of our culture.
Coming home to ourselves is a way to heal the first wound of our culture.
Coming home is a practice, an art, and even a journey.
It can often proceed in a cyclical fashion, from the gross level to the more subtle levels.
We can deepen our art of homecoming through awareness.
Ultimately, coming home to ourselves leads us to the realization that we are, at our core, whole beings.
Coming from Self energy, we meet the world as our core selves: calm, curious, compassionate, connected, clear, creative, courageous, and confident.
We can access our Self energy whenever we need it.
But the funny thing about this journey of homecoming is that you find out, spoiler alert, nothing is wrong with you.
You are Life, you are Nature itself. Perfectly imperfect, your becoming — your remembering — is exactly the point.
Ultimately, we are coming home to loving awareness.
Remember, your self energy, your loving awareness, is as close as your breath. You can reach for it whenever you need it. You are, in truth, always home.
