Already Home, Already Free (sharing a beautiful Grace song by Kirtana)

Here is a wonderful song that Woolly has shared with us..such wonderful lyrics about how we are already FINE and can just BE, just as we are, for just as we are is perfect!

Lyrics:

Already Home, Already Free 
(Kirtana)

Nothing to seek.
Nothing to gain.
Nothing to know.

Nothing to lose.
Nothing to do,
but let go.

Let's rest here
where the future
and the past disappear...
Here--
in the sanctity of Now.

Nothing to prove.
Nothing to own.
No one to be.

Nowhere to move.
Already home.
Already Free.

Let's just stay
in the cave of the heart today
and bask
in this ever-present love.

Nothing to fix.
Nothing to change.
Nothing to fight.

Only what is.
What if what is
is just right.

Why not trust
this Mystery living us
and rest
in the refuge of the Self.

Nothing to judge.
No one to blame or fear.
Only my face
greeting me in the mirror.

Nowhere to turn.
Nowhere to hide.
Nobody else.

Nothing outside
that isn't inside
myself.

Let's just see,
Is anyone here but me? --
Here--
in the present moment now.

Nothing to know.
Nothing to do.
No one to be.

Nowhere to go.
Already home.
Already free.

Nowhere to go.
Already home.
Already free.

Nowhere to go.
Already home.
Already free.


I was thinking about this idea recently, that since we are made by God, we must already be fine, adequate, enough, beautiful, wonderful and even perfect..for 'whatever God does is perfect!'

How wonderful to know that since He is obviously satisfied with anything HE makes - which includes you and me - that we too can be satisfied with the you and me He has made..we can be satisfied with ourselves, okay with ourselves, accepting of ourselves, pleased with ourselves.  For God thinks we are enough in His eyes, so we can be enough in our own eyes!

We can really gives ourselves a break and love ourselves and be good to ourselves..we can be okay with ourselves..and know that we don't have to feel a need to change, grow, improve, fix ourselves, do something, make something happen, get somewhere, or become something 'better' - we are already fine right at this moment, where we are, as we are.

We can say that just as we are, we ARE okay, enough, good, even wonderful, beautiful, great..perfect in our messy human imperfectness and weakness..perfect to Him always..for we are His amazingly perfect handiwork always and forever!

  1. For some reason, this song made me think of a turtle, and how in many ways we are similar to turtles, though of course we are mammals and they reptiles. Turtles always carry their homes wherever they go, and they can freely retreat within whenever they wish. I guess our lives in Christ are similar, we are already home, our homes are within us, we are already there, "nowhere to go". Since we are already home, we can freely explore the world and take risks, live freely, because home is within us. And when we feel scared or as though things have not gone our way, we can simply retreat within, back inside our home seeking safety, shelter and comfort.

    Thanks for sharing these lyrics!

  2. Wow, Anon, I love this analogy of how we are like turtles carrying our homes around with us, able to retreat within and be so safe and sheltered..I love how you said it: "our home is within us, we are already there.." That is so lovely! Thank you for sharing this beautiful image of safety and joy!
