"You can never go home again." This is a very over-used and worn out saying. It means that once you've left your town, city, or country you can't go back and have things the way you remember them. This is true, perhaps, on one level. Life isn't stagnant. It it constantly evolving and changing. Things will never be quite the same or quite as good as we remember them. The good news is that you never have to leave! No, you don't have to stay in one place your whole life...you can move whenever and where ever you want because home isn't a place, it's you! It's right there inside. You're always home no matter where your life takes you...as long as you remain true to who you are. Whether you use meditation or some other form of mildfulness thinking, you can travel and move about the world and always be at home. It is important to maintain your connections with the ones you love. And it's great that we can find loving connections wherever we go; new friends and new family that can support us on our journey. I love and embrace the saying, "There are no strangers, only friends I haven't met yet." By living these words, and by remaining true to your core beliefs, you can be at home anywhere and on any lily pad. As the Dharma Frog says, "Om is where the heart is." So true, my wise friend.
