But pain and death are here. And no "home" can be so safe that it is devoid of these things.
As people mature on the spiritual path, we learn to let go of this kind of seeking. We seek refuge in spirituality by letting go of "home" and residing in the changeless space that embraces all this change. This is what I mean when I say that we come home to the infinite within us. We cannot deny change in our human forms. Rather, we can embrace the infinite love, presence, and serenity that we are all part of, and through that depth, we accept all the pain, death, hate, love, joy, ecstasy, and everything else that comes up in human life. We accept all of it as part of our home.
