Gurudevi says that homecoming is an inner homecoming. You are sitting inside yourself in a whole new way. You have found what yoga calls your own Self. Self-knowing is the familiarity of everything being right in the world. Come home to a home you’ve always wanted to live in. Your spiritual home is within you, as you.

Gurudevi tells us, “As glorious as love can be, it’s never enough. It’s not a substitute for your own Self.” At its root, the feeling of emptiness comes from feeling separate from God. Yoga is a science of spiritual development that takes you inward, reconnecting you to your inherent Divinity. But how do you get there by yourself? You need help from an enlightened being. Only one who knows the One Reality can give you the inner experience of your own Self. That experience truly is an inner homecoming.
Gurudevi explains the difference between connection and Beingness. It is your own Self that you seek, the inner sense of wholeness and oneness that is the knowing of your own Self. But the root of the human dilemma is that this knowing is hidden from you. Instead of looking outward for connection, you must look inward to find your Self. You are the One Reality. You are Shiva. Through meditation and Shaktipat, the One Reality being you is now revealed to you as you.
