Your Home


You are unafraid in the safety of the place you call home

Live in your enlightened soul and every place becomes safe and known

Protector, helper and guide

Become aware of its presence

And smile in peace wherever you go

Spirit is your safe haven

In this world and the next

Become one with yourself

And make it your new, everlasting and loving home
