You may remember the television commercial that home furnishings store IKEA ran a couple of years ago. It showed pictures of different houses, ranging from a mansion on the side of a mountain, to a home-made camper shell on the back of a pickup truck.
To me, there is a big difference between a “house” (where your physical body resides) and a “home” (where you experience acceptance, safety, comfort and peace). Growing up, your house may not have offered you the comfort of “home.” And in fact, many of us keep searching for that experience of home, often looking for it outside ourselves. But when we allow ourselves to go within, and connect with the loving, nurturing presence of Spirit (God, the Universe, our Higher Power), we can have that peace and quiet.
