Where is Home?

I’ve been thinking about Home and what/where is home. Trying to figure this out since I like to and want to travel. Is my home within me? I’d like to think so, but I’d like the concept to be clear to me and sink in.


Well, there is the physical concept of home – its warmth and comforts. What is Home? Home is your space – a physical space but not just that – it’s a space of love, peace, joy, caring, nurturing, a space where you’re comfortable with yourself, your guard is down, you are more yourself, you are relaxed. Can you feel that within yourself so it’s not very different when you travel? So you won’t feel lost. 

 

External circumstances and environment may change. What doesn’t change? 

My anchor and my radar! 

 

So, what’s your anchor? – my values, my experience, my confidence, my belief in myself, my priorities. 

 

Your radar? – is the direction I want to take, the kind of life I want to live. Am I clear about that? Yes, I am.

Learning, Growing, Experiencing. I want to be more present to myself so I can experience life to its fullest. Ways to do that – exercise, meditation, focus on breathing, being aware of your thoughts. (Incorporate into daily routine)

Nature, different thinking, cultures, learning new things, being open. Living life in each moment. Fully. 

 

Then why do we feel lost at times? When we take on and live other people’s energies/lives/way of thinking/expectations. Let’s be more aware of that. Behavior and reactions should be yours, not influenced. 

 

Important to be most comfortable with yourself, just the way you are – accepting, loving, being your own best friend, enjoying your own company.

 

They say Home is where the Heart is. Focus on and choose more and more of those activities (and people) that fill you with Joy. Focus on yourself. The more Know Yourself, the clearer you’ll be. 





 

How does this translate for me?

1.     Love and be kind to yourself, no matter what

2.     Exercise, meditate, focus on breathing, focus on thoughts

3.     Focus on all that brings you JOY and LOVE

4. Remember Anchor and Radar always, especially when you’re lost – that’s Home. You can stay in that place or go to it anytime, anywhere.

Judgement


Judgement is ego poking at us from fear or pride. It is an idea of perfection in our head, based on our conditioning. 

 

Judgement prevents us from being present because we’re addressing a situation or a person from our pre conceived ideas and notions that may be unclear. 

 

Once we let judgement go, life becomes more peaceful. We start accepting situations and people more readily. We're able to see and hear the other person better by being present to ourselves and others. Connections become more comfortable and relaxed.  


It's also about respecting the other for who they are. Once we decide we don't want or need to judge and be judged, we react differently to situations and people. The other person has the right to be treated without bias. So do you. 


Anything of course that we want to apply to the outer world, we must apply to our inner world first. So if it’s no judgment of another, then it's no judgment of myself too! Hard yet important. Worth trying. Its freeing yourself from pressure!


Once you become more accepting of yourself as you are, you tend to become accepting of others just the way they are. Its liberating not just for you but for the other person as well. Nobody's under any pressure or wearing masks. It opens you up more to this amazing world and to connections. Beautiful new connections surprise you. 




How does this translate for me

 

Become aware and say ‘nah ah No Judgy’, when I'm forming opinions based on my ideas or conditioning or experience 

 

When I'm being hard on myself... I say to myself... It's okay I still love you. I love you just the way you are. It’s okay. You're okay.
