As children we are self centered and self involved (which is normal) and sensitive to every nuance that we interpret as critical. We hear "no" thousands of times to curb our natural enthusiasm and curiosity and are actually punished for the manner in which our brains project our genius. This natural genius has been long forgotten by the adults who are determined to socialize us into obedient conformists.
Homecoming resurrects the community of children hiding in the shadow of fear and assists us in coaxing them back into life to once again become contributing aspects in our personality.
John Bradshaw definition of shame versus guilt is brilliant. We claim to feel guilt that lasts for years and sometimes decades. Bradshaw says that guilt is being sorry for what we have done whereas shame is feeling sorry for who we "are" as a being. Read that again won't you. Let it sink in and integrate. It is a lighted discernment. What most call guilt is actually shame. Being ashamed of oneself. Being ashamed for who we are "being". A devastating difference.
I give HOMECOMING to friends who are learning how to love their inner children (there is a community of aspects), help them find their voices again, and to return to some of the genius that is their birthright.
Reading this book is a return of sanity. It is like working with Sybil (multiple personality) and taking all of the fractured aspects of the children within ourselves, and allowing them to reinvent themselves and flourish.
HOMECOMING is practical and gently leads anyone "willing" into a world of new possibilities. Coupled with HOMECOMING, consider […] Byron Katie's "the work" is another tool for learning how to LOVE WHAT IS (one of her books).
