Your Spiritual Duty is to Be Home

To be able to answer the calling when you hear it bare your name

to enjoy the gifts and treasures your life offers you

to experience the illuminating clarity of vision

you must be home.

Your only spiritual duty is to be home.

You must sit at the centre of

the room.

In a cosy armchair,

and feel comfortable to be at the centre of things.

You are, after all, the centre of things.

The centre of your life,

the centre of your calling

the centre of your secrets and keys to your yearnings.

Don’t be silly, it’s not an ignorant kind of centre,

a hungry beast that thinks only about the ‘self’ in ‘him’.

It’s a gravitational centre,

where your life is being pulled towards you.

So when you leave home--

to search for more glamours images to wear

under the neon lights of merciless comparisons,
