In the past few days I have dissolved a home of 21 years in northern Germany and moved to the Spanish island of Majorca. It poses the question of what we define as home and where to let go of meaningless material attachment.
One of the key lessons of walking the Camino is that the less you carry in your back pack the easier your walk. You have to go lean to go far. Essentially there is not much we need to feel contentment of heart.
There is not much that remains of those things we clutter our homes with when it comes to downsizing. A rule of thumb is what you haven’t worn or used during the past six months is no longer of value to you.
Within the word Home, is one of the most powerful mantras OM. In the Sanskrit origin it translates as the vibrational Source and connection to the Supreme. Peace of mind and contentment can only be found With-In. You always take yourself with you wherever you are and with all that with which your mind is preoccupied with.
The bottom line: If you are a grumpy old scrooge at the place where you are now, chances are good that you will remain a grumpy old scrooge wherever you choose to go.
Its an illusion to think that everything will change for the better if you change your wife, your house, your job and your country, if you don’t change your mindset as well.
But its not the whole story. Who you are is determined largely by your associations and the environment you live in. We are social beings who interact and need to interact with each other all the time.
If the people you surround yourself with and your immediate surroundings are no longer conducive to your further development, then its time to move.
Yet, attachments mainly in the form of material things and emotional baggage of the past subconsciously hinder us from taking a big step forward to new things, new perspectives, new relationships and in the end more lessons learned on the path to a raised consciousness.
