Missing My Hometown

[PureInsight.org] Preface: Our body, our soul and our life finally come together as we walk on the way towards home.

As a traveling man, no matter how far away I am from home, my hometown is always in my heart. Especially during holidays, I feel lonely and homesick while other people are happily celebrating the holidays. Even in these times, when people do not have much feeling toward each other, we all still long for home. It is like the falling leaves of a tree, which always go towards the roots. Maybe it is only the feeling of missing home that is real, and maybe what we really miss is our final destination beyond human society where we transcend our humanness and various attachments like fame and personal gain.

But when we are tired and we finally return home, when we are no longer traveling and when we can enjoy the warmness, support and comfort of home, we find that we are still frustrated. What exactly is it that we’re looking for? In this physical dimension, we find that material possessions cannot fulfill our spiritual needs. What we need is a spiritual home. But where is our true spiritual home? It is far away. “I look back—I did not see the ancients; I look ahead—I can't see the generations to come.” Should I “Go Home” or just “Keep Going”? Should I “Drift With the Tide” or be “The Only Person Awake”?

It seems that we are children who got spiritually lost. But something in our innate character has kept us searching and longing. From ancient times until today, we have never stopped.

We have kept asking questions like: Where do I come from? Where should I go? Who am I? Actually, our questions have already been answered by Gods—good is rewarded with good, and evil with evil. There is indeed a heaven and hell.

Today we are very lucky to have this precious opportunity to listen to the truth of the universe—Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance. Falun Dafa has opened the door to the home of the universe for all sentient beings. It has shown us the way home and let us know the true picture of life. We have finally found our way home. From now on, our body, our soul, and our life finally come together as we walk on our way towards home.

Even though we have been tied up by evil atheism, we always want to go back home when we are away from home. Even though we are lost among violence and lies, our vulnerable heart is always looking for peace. The birds will come back after they are tired. The feeling of returning home is always in our heart. Even though temporarily the clouds block the sun, and violence and lies hide the truth, the feeling of returning home never changes. There is nothing that can stop us from going home. This is the reason that Falun Dafa practitioners are still on their way home even after ten years of severe persecution.

After seventeen years, Falun Dafa has spread to one hundred and fourteen countries. The blessings from Falun Dafa are encompassing the universe and inspiring every sentient being.

In this time when Falun Dafa has spread, I cannot find any language to express my grateful feelings. Let the world and every sentient being resound with the words: “Falun Dafa is Good!”
