Happy New Year From the Author of SC&A
We will resume regular posting on Thursday, January 3, 2013.
In this, our last post of 2012, SC&A want to extend New Year’s Greetings to our readers.
In a less than perfect world, we crave the warmth and security of home. Whether as children or adults, our home and family should be where we feel most comfortable and at ease. Home is the respite from daily battle, where you return when the day is done. Your home and family are the center of your life, whether you feel it at the moment or not.
It is from homes our most important life decisions are made. Our homes have shaped many of our beliefs and attitudes, our awareness and self esteem, that feeling of worth- and in a healthy individual, that motivator to give to others. It is from our homes and families that we learn to share, to cope, to play and to forgive. We learn to be comfortable with ourselves. Most importantly, in a healthy home, we learn to laugh and be happy.
The drive for the acquisition of more ‘things’, larger homes, vacation homes, more luxurious homes and so on, all contribute to and create that false sense of security and delusion, one that only further isolates the soul. As with investment portfolios, familial security requires diversification. If the acquisition and over valuation of material goods is the only way one can find what is only temporary inner peace, that is all that person will end up with- temporary peace and satisfaction.
