I will be still an instant and go home.
This world you seem to live in is not home to you. And somewhere in your mind you know that this is true. A memory of home keeps haunting you, as if there were a place that called you to return, although you do not recognize the voice, nor what it is the voice reminds you of. Yet still you feel an alien here, from somewhere all unknown. Nothing so definite that you could say with certainty you are an exile here. Just a persistent feeling, sometimes not more than a tiny throb, at other times hardly remembered, actively dismissed, but surely to return to mind again.
No one but knows whereof we speak. Yet some try to put by their suffering in games they play to occupy their time, and keep their sadness from them. Others will deny that they are sad, and do not recognize their tears at all. Still others will maintain that what we speak of is illusion, not to be considered more than but a dream. Yet who, in simple honesty, without defensiveness and self-deception, would deny he understands the words we speak?
We speak today for everyone who walks this world, for he is not at home. He goes uncertainly about in endless search, seeking in darkness what he cannot find; not recognizing what it is he seeks. A thousand homes he makes, yet none contents his restless mind. He does not understand he builds in vain. The home he seeks can not be made by him. There is no substitute for Heaven. All he ever made was hell.
Perhaps you think it is your childhood home that you would find again. The childhood of your body, and its place of shelter, are a memory now so distorted that you merely hold a picture of a past that never happened. Yet there is a Child in you Who seeks His Father’s house, and knows that He is alien here. This childhood is eternal, with an innocence that will endure forever. Where this Child shall go is holy ground. It is His Holiness that lights up Heaven, and that brings to earth the pure reflection of the light above, wherein are earth and Heaven joined as one.
It is this Child in you your Father knows as His Own Son/Daughter. It is this Child Who knows His/Her Father. He/She desires to go home so deeply, so unceasingly, His/Her voice cries unto you to let Him/Her rest a while. He/She does not ask for more than just a few instants of respite; just an interval in which He/She can return to breathe again the holy air that fills His/Her Father’s house. You are His/Her home as well. He/She will return. But give Him/Her just a little time to be Himself/Herself, within the peace that is His/Her home, resting in silence and in peace and love.
This Child needs your protection. He /She is far from home. He is so little that He /She seems so easily shut out, His/Her tiny voice so readily obscured, His/Her call for help almost unheard amid the grating sounds and harsh and rasping noises of the world. Yet does He /She know that in you still abides His/Her sure protection. You will fail Him/Her not. He /She will go home, and you along with Him/Her.
This Child is your defenselessness; your strength. He /She trusts in you. He /She came because He /She knew you would not fail. He /She whispers of His/Her home unceasingly to you. For He /She would bring you back with Him/Her, that He /She Himself/Herself might stay, and not return again where He /She does not belong, and where He /She lives an outcast in a world of alien thoughts. His/Her patience has no limits. He /She will wait until you hear His/Her gentle Voice within you, calling you to let Him/Her go in peace, along with you, to where He /She is at home and you with Him/Her.
When you are still an instant, when the world recedes from you, when valueless ideas cease to have value in your restless mind, then will you hear His/Her Voice. So poignantly He /She calls to you that you will not resist Him/Her longer. In that instant He /She will take you to His/Her home, and you will stay with Him/Her in perfect stillness, silent and at peace, beyond all words, untouched by fear and doubt, sublimely certain that you are at home.
Rest with Him/Her frequently today. For He /She was willing to become a little Child that you might learn of Him/Her how strong is he/she who comes without defenses, offering only love’s messages to those who think he/she is their enemy. He /She holds the might of Heaven in His/Her hand and calls them friend, and gives His/Her strength to them, that they may see He /She would be Friend to them. He /She asks that they protect Him/Her, for His/Her home is far away, and He/She will not return to it alone.
Christ is reborn as but a little Child each time a wanderer would leave his/her home. For he/she must learn that what he/she would protect is but this Child, Who comes defenseless and Who is protected by defenselessness. Go home with Him/Her from time to time today. You are as much an alien here as He/She.
Take time today to lay aside your shield which profits nothing, and lay down the spear and sword you raised against an enemy without existence. Christ has called you friend and brother. He/She has even come to ask your help in letting Him/Her go home today, completed and completely. He /She has come as does a little child, who must beseech his/her father for protection and for love. He /She rules the universe, and yet He /She asks unceasingly that you return with Him/Her, and take illusions as your gods no more.
You have not lost your innocence. It is for this you yearn. This is your heart’s desire. This is the voice you hear, and this the call which cannot be denied. The holy Child remains with you. His/Her home is yours. Today He /She gives you His/Her defenselessness, and you accept it in exchange for all the toys of battle you have made. And now the way is open, and the journey has an end in sight at last. Be still an instant and go home with Him/Her, and be at peace a while.
