rational, a photo by jonnybaker on Flickr. In all humans there is powerful homing instinct, a longing for home, a longing for a place where we can have a true sense of belonging, where we can be fully who we are without fear or shame, where we know we are beloved on the earth, where we can become all that we are meant to be in life.
The more I have the courage to be myself the more likely it is that I will know the love of God who yearns for me to come home.(Dreaming of Home by Michael Mitton)
Our natural will is to have God, and the good will of God is to have us, and we may never cease willing or longing for God until we have him in the fullness of joy. Christ will never have his full bliss in us until we have our full bliss in him. (Julian of Norwich)
