Heading Home

Song - Heading Home by Jack Johnson & Donavon Frankenreiter

"Many people take umbrage
 when someone sets out
 to find his or her spiritual home. 
If you embark on a similar journey, 
you should expect some people 
to be shocked, 
to be angry, 
to tell you 
you’re breaking the rules. 

That has certainly been my experience. 
the rewards are 
inexpressibly wonderful. 
Heading towards 
that inner home 
will take you places—
both inside yourself 
and in the external world—
which your heart 
 will recognize 
as its native environment, 
even though 
you have never been there before. 
I would go so far as to say 
that this may be 
the purpose for human life; 
that we are set free 
into a lonely universe 
like homing pigeons 
meant to find our way back to joy."

 -- Martha Beck
