I’ve been processing on a much more conscious level of late, the idea of home and what constitutes environmental comfort. Probably since my home was turned upside down a few months ago whilst the builders demolished and rebuilt my bathroom causing chaos in what seemed like every other room… that’s the point: you cannot contain a major change in one area of your life without everything else being affected, at least on a minor level. Minor adjustments to the continuum send shockwaves down every strand of the web however minute and seemingly unnoticeable at first.
Shockwaves, like sound waves can be carried on the wind and travel long distances, becoming diluted the further they travel, moving from deafening to an almost indiscernable haunting melody that is so faint that you’re not sure if it’s your subconscious playing tricks on you, before it fades completely having run its course.
When you consider your life, the structures that you’ve built for yourself like family, relationships, career, social standing, financial nest egg, your house or abode etc, these things that currently define your level of comfort and what makes you feel at home, what would happen if just one of those things were to dramatically change?
They will change.
Life is far from static and what you see as being your comfort zone will inevitably be tested… if you don’t step outside of it now and again the divine will shift the goalposts anyway to force you to look beyond your own back yard and understand that yesterday’s optimal is far from today’s potential… change is growth and the only way to survive change is to redefine home…
Looking within at your core beliefs and your connection to a higher power, knowing that who you are: a beautiful soul on an adventure, is the pure essence lying beneath the veneer, and holding onto the notion that this reverberating web is the greatest fun you can ever possibly experience (if you choose to see it that way) is quite enough to wake you up to the truth that home is so much bigger than the structures you have built up around yourself and that regardless of outer appearances, only a minor adjustment and a little time and distance from the main event horizon and the cacophony will once again become a haunting melody that you are perfectly at home dancing to.
