Home furnishings

IT'S tempting to believe that the bricks and mortar that constitute a house are the substance of home. But the material components of a house have little to do with what home truly is. We can be at home anywhere in the world, for it's the heavenly structure of our thinking, not merely an ideal floor plan, the constitutes a perfect home.

We are at home when our consciousness is filled with tenderness, joy, beauty, and forgiveness, which bring comfort, warmth, and security. These don't come from a physical location but are within our thought, and they enable us to reflect our Maker without any encumbrances. The Psalmist describes this pure state of thought as "the secret place of the most High" (Ps. 91:1). This home-consciousness is an awareness of our oneness with God. And since it is not physical place, it cannot be lost, swept away in a storm, shaken apart, or burned to the ground. Home is eternal yet ever new, always developing as our spiritual understanding of it grows.
