Having watched this TED video of Teitur performing his 2 songs, I am reminded of my own feelings of what ‘home’ is……
First the video… just ‘feel’ it…..
My belief is that ‘home’ is not a place, but a feeling, a state of mind, or even.. a state of NO mind!( thoughts can often push us away from ‘home’!…We should spread Teitur’s song as far as we can… the total performance clarifies what ‘home’ is, so incredibly well… BUT.. just remembering the words isn’t a way of realising where ‘home’ is, or even finding it… It’s a feeling that the whole performance conveys, that defies definition by just the music and/or the lyrics… the ‘whole’ is so much more than the sum of the parts with this song. So many people could be so much happier, if they stopped looking for ‘home’ outside of themselves.
Once we start searching for ‘home’ or ‘truth’ or ‘happiness’ outside of ourselves(particularly if we believe these things can be found in the past or the future); then all we do is move further away from where we want to be…. Don’t think too much!.. Be here, now, and then just compassionately, ‘be’!
Then, there’s every chance you’ll find that you’re home!😄.
I’d love to hear some of your comments/reactions to any of my Blogs… Please feel free to have your say.. we could start some interesting discussions that way. (scroll down the page)…….
