Coming Home

“This is a very important practice. Live your daily life in a way that you never lose yourself. When you are carried away with your worries, fears, cravings, anger, and desire, you run away from yourself and you lose yourself. The practice is always to go back to oneself.” — Thich Nhat Hanh

Coming HomeFilled with an incredible amount of insight and a heart full of love, I returned this weekend to my beloved home, husband, daughter, pets, friends and LifePath Center in San Miguel de Allende. It’s wonderful to be home where I am reminded of Thich Hnat Hanh’s teaching in the quote above because of the years of being aware of this practice in this sacred and safe environment. My home reminds me of the practice of coming back to myself and, yet, it’s a practice that I must remember wherever I am.
I’ve found, over and over, that it’s so important to nurture our body and soul and, yet, it’s easy to forget. To help me (and, you) remember, I’d like to share some lyrics written by Carole Bayer Sager. I’m keeping them close. You might want to, also.
I wake up and see
The light of the day
Shining on me
Make my own time
It’s mine to spend
Think to myself
My own best friend
It’s not so bad all alone
Comin’ home to myself again
Now I understand
Whatever I feel is whoever I am
Watching my life and how its grown
Looking on back to friends I’ve known
Its not so bad all alone
Coming home to myself again
It’s not so bad to get lost in my tears
And to laugh and to cry for the years gone by
Oh my, oh my,
Now somehow I know
I’ve come a long way
Got a long way to go
But something inside
Keeps making me strong
And in the bad times
I’ll get along
‘Cause it’s not so bad all alone
Comin’ home to myself again
I’m comin’ home
What do you need to remind yourself to come home to yourself?
I’d love to hear from you at docbeverly@aol.com about your thoughts. I truly would.
