Home and Family

image

People idealize home and family, as if vaguely recalling some celestial correspondence.   Yet most homes are rarely celestial, and often correspond to imprisonment and abuse that violates love.  Over-emphasis on blood relations is often accompanied by a relatively loveless and unhappy bondage.   So, instead of an oasis of culture, the usual home is only a karmic burning ground. 

Ideally, a home would be a microcosm of true brotherhood.  Brotherhood might begin in a good home, and would have far-ranging significance, because brotherhood transcends all the narrow groves of conventional clannishness.
