I have arrived, I am home. - Thich Nhat Hanh
Imagine yourself, in the midst of your busy day, taking the time to breathe in the thought, “I have arrived,” and then breathe out the thought, “I am home.” Imagine yourself taking a few moments, whenever you feel hurried or stressed, to breath in, “I have arrived,” and breath out, “I am home.” In reality, we have arrived and we are home, no matter where we are, what we are doing, or how we are feeling. So I continually ask myself, how can I make my home a happier, more peaceful, and healthier place to be? I strive every day, with impressive imperfection, to be at peace with my mind and body, those things that are home to the Self.
I have also learned that regardless of how late I stay up, what I eat and drink, how stressed out I am, and how much or how little I exercise, this incredible body of mine lovingly works so hard to manage everything I throw at it. My body loves me and responds to my behaviors with the goal of keeping me healthy and in homeostasis. For example, a craving for sugar or caffeine is my body's way of responding to stress or lack of sleep. Those very cravings are my body's way of saying, "You need more energy and you have re-booted like this before." What happens when I introduce my body to more nourishing ways of staying energized? How can I truly fuel this body that works so hard to take care of me? So now I ask myself, if my body loves me so much, how can I cultivate more love for my true home in this life, and revere and nourish my one precious body?
