In a new home

We move with time to our different worlds. Often, we move to new homes. Do we change, as persons, when we move from one home to another? Our psychology, our consciousness, our subjectivity, do they change, as we move? When the body and the mind are in peace, we attain a sustainable equilibrium. At equilibrium our body refuels and repairs itself and the mind feels peaceful, happy, and loving. Home is our resting place. When we go out of our home, our physical and psychological equilibrium, often, momentarily goes off balance. We want to re-establish the equilibrium. Once we are home, we are in peace.
We are home the moment we have ‘sense of home’. The sense of home lights up our responsive network. We are home with our body, with our senses, and with our space. Home is not built in a day. Home is part of self-definition. We try to display ourselves through our homes. A mere functional living space is not a home. One needs to develop a relationship with the space to call it a home. Home is where one can be with oneself. The place otherwise is an empty space. Home is where one gets reinvented. What a paradox? Unless, you leave home, you wouldn’t know what you are missing. The moment you are home, you forget what you were missing.
