home. what is home?
a question i've been considering for some time now.
for the past few months, i've been preparing to move, physically, "home".
to the place i was raised. to the very house i grew up in.
is that what home is?
for me, it's only one of the possible applications for the word.

the idea of home, is, well, simply that - an idea. a concept. a feeling.
it's familiarity. home.
and so home also applies to the destination we seek, on our inner journey.
to come into being our "true" selves. to remember what we are in essence.
to "know" oneself truly is to be home. and to stay "rooted" in that state, is the goal, right?
we're all trying to find home, to stay there.
even tho home is always with us, part of us, the whole of what we are, we spend much of our lives unable to remember what it means to be home.

for me, the physical movement back to the home of my childhood, is facillitating more movement on the inner journey homeward.
behind me, i leave whatever i no longer need in my life.
many material items, habitual thought/behavioural patterns, even the concept of working for someone else.
in front of me lies a fresh path. one i've dreamed of walking for some time.
a true re-invention of my-self is at hand.
the skills i've learned in the past, are what i now intend to use to create my new life.
a life of working for myself, and helping others.
creative projects abound, i feel more inspired than ever before. each new idea sparks another...
all the while, my understanding of healing, and my ability to facillitate it grows...
and with courses on the horizon that promise to ever broaden that understanding and ability, the potential of what's possible becomes ever more apparent.

a personal project i've begun, intends to fuse both aspects of my interest - artistic creativity, with healing potential.
i have more work than ever ahead of me, and i'm more excited than i've ever been.
just to be, me.

looking back, i can see the various paths i've trodden, to bring me to this place. those things which will in turn allow my future to be exactly what i want it to be.
and tho the future is yet to be created, i can see it, an image firmly rooted in my mind.
the paths i never realised i was walking, have converged and become one.
and it leads only one direction - home.

it's good to be. home. :D

last night, after a small run-in with a family member (family eh? can't ignore them, can't shoot them with a crossbow! :P ), i was feeling pretty de-flated.
i went to bed a little unsure of my present course... wondering if i've made the right decision in which direction i'm trying to go...

so i asked for guidance, to let me know if i'm heading in the right direction.
i asked for obvious symbols, ones i would easily recognise.
i usually forget to add that part, but whenever i do, it always results in a very clear message. :D

the only thing i remember from last night's dreaming is this "dream" -

i'm playing an old arcade game i used to love as a young dude -Out Run.
it's a driving game. at the end of each level, you're faced with a fork in the road. you pick a direction, and the next level begins...(also there's funky cruising music playing on the radio 8) )
i was playing the game, hands on the control pad, guiding the car along the road, past obstacles. sometimes the road was smooth, sometimes very bumpy.
i got a few levels in, but found myself in an environment i didn't like.
i stopped the game, and went back to the beginning.
again, driving well, many obstacles, and some very rough roads to travel.
there were other players i was aware of, playing in the same game environment.
this time i went the direction i wanted to go...
soon i was ahead of the others.
the road became very rough, potholes everywhere, and many obstacles to avoid, but in the end, i got to the finish line, way ahead of the others.
blue skies and green grass awaited me at the finish. :D 8)

so essentially, i'm in control. i choose where i want to go, and even if i make mistakes, i can make new choices that will get me where i want to be.
it won't be easy, but it can be fun along the way. as long as i stay focused, i'll get there...sounds good to me! :D
