Home: a spiritual concept

The answer to our search for home is found in the consciousness of our unity with God.

An essayist wrote in The Christian Science Monitor: "Most of us spend our lives searching for the place, the house, the country, where we ought to be. ... This search for our place is something most of us share, otherwise why would we keep buying houses, moving, looking for the 'perfect' house? There is no perfect house except in the country of the heart and, there, you alone may find it."

Home, one of the most cherished concepts, is, as the writer above brings out, far more than a house, far more than the traditional definition of "dwelling place." Home has definite spiritual meaning; real home is found within, in our consciousness of God's presence.
