    How would you express in words the feeling of being home?

    Today marks a homecoming for Kati and me that we did not expect. It gives us an extraordinary feeling of quality of life and well-being. After more than forty moves in twelve years, it feels this day that we have come home. There is a risk in writing it, as we have thought we'd come home before and then moved on. I sometimes said 'I am home wherever I am,' but now see there is something more. What is the 'feeling of being home' to you?

    As the old saying goes"Home is where the heart is smile."

    The feeling of being home is waking up in your husbands arms or hearing your children listen to TV without waking you tongue Realizing that after these years, everything is still wonderful. One of my favorite sayings consists as "Home is where my heart is but my heart is where you are. It's getting so hard to fight these days without my heart. So I'm taking you with me."

    wherever you are, whether you are still on the move from a different address every year or already found a permanent address to set roots; whether you are alone in the whole wide world or safely snuggled up with loved ones; whether it is calm and peaceful outside or raging with storm....being home is to turn inward and safely nestled in the safe and loving embrace of your Divinity within. Be in that eternal space where nothing could move you, where no emotion could sway you, all is joy, all is love, all is infinite yet not at all.

    Being home describes a happy place in time, hope for the future and good family memories, but most of all the best detail that paints a perfect picture of home is a place where against all odds, persecutions, anxieties and pain you can be at peace.

    Yes, home is where the heart is, but what does this mean? Can we describe the feeling in words?

    And then, this is not to be argumentative but simply to have dialog to gain understanding, if home depends on any outer surrounding or circumstance, what happens to the feeling when those are gone?

    As a metaphor, feeling 'not at home' is like being a strain of music that is discordant with one's environment and coming home is when the melody of one's life is in harmony with the surroundings. Home is a feeling of being in the right place for the time, a feeling of warmth and well-being that radiates from within. I have found that feeling even in the most difficult circumstances, when my heart was expanded (home is where the heart is) yet also found that my heart responds to certain environments where it is more at home than in others.

    Being complete and relaxed is what being at home means to me
