Finding Home, Part 4 of 4
A Lenten Meditation on Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32
The prodigal son “coming to himself” – and, interpreting this personally, my coming to myself, and universalizing it, our coming to ourselves – is a decidedly spiritual journey.
A journey that may lead to the discovery or rediscovery that home – where we are free to be and to become, where we are accepted and loved – is primarily not metaphysically external to us, but rather existentially within us. For when we do not (or cannot) accept and love ourselves, indeed, “the other” within us, then neither can another accept and love us enough nor can we truly accept and love another.
