Coming Home

Sometimes you feel far away. From your Self. Your beingness. Your heart. Sometimes you can get so caught up in the stories you tell, that the truth of who you are seems distant. Disconnected. Maybe you feel lost. Maybe you feel numb. Maybe you wonder if you ever knew yourself at all.

Just because you feel far away doesn’t mean that is the truth. The truth is so much more vast. So much more amazing. Your perception is yours. It is not universal. It is not real. It can get skewed as the stresses and challenges of life come present. You may begin looking through the eyes of not enoughness…the lenses of self-judgment and pain. You may be looking past the truth and into the places that feel broken.

Those places ache. They cry out. They want your attention. They beg us to turn away from the what is real and play in their land of Woe Is Me. Maybe you fight it, turning your attention to the never ending horizon. Maybe you indulge and get lost in swamps. Or maybe, if you are lucky, you listen. Hear what they have to say. Give them the attention, the love that they need. Then they can know. They can open their eyes. You can open your eyes and see that you have been home all along.

You cannot leave yourself. Abandon yourself. Run away. You are here, with your Self, no matter what. People like to pretend otherwise. People like to think that they can let go of who they are and dive deep into the madness. But that is not possible. The deep, rich self of truth is always present. Always. You, who you are at your core, is always around. Always. You are amazing. Limitless. You loved. You are love. You are. That is what is real. That is what is always real.

Love tears through the veils of confusion. Through the false beliefs of lost and hopeless. Through any wild tales that you spin in your incredible mind. Love. The pain, it wants love. The confusion wants love too. The experience of being lost is only satiated by love. Love is home. Every time. In every way. Love is home.

In those moments when you begin to believe the fairy tale of lost and broken, know that it is not real. That your eyes simply remain closed. It can be scary to open them. To see if what is real is real. To trust that love is all there is. It can be scary. But if home is what you desire. If connection is what you long for. Then you must leap. You must open your eyes and see that you have been living in the arms of love all along. You must know that you are home.
