Yes, "home" more a journey than a place. There can be no going back.



in " the hobbit " and thus " the lord of the rings trilogy " - bilbo not only trying to home again, but he save a kingdom and had adventure to doing it. some ways, ulysess did the same way.

Yes, that is suggestive. Home (as a journey) excludes nothing.

One image of Reality-as-is in Pure Land Buddhism is of "infinite potential."

this pure land - it sound like something like the wizard of oz or peter pan 's neverland. it sound like these two places. pure land deals with conscience mind - a place - where you be safe and at home. this place you get to, because only in your mind?

What is in a "word"? I would not use the word "safe" in this context. There is the Christian cry of "though He slay me, yet will I trust Him". Just how "safe" are you?

Again, once we start using phrases like "all in the mind" we have to ask just where the "mind" begins. Is the "mind" trapped within our heads? "If mind exists only in the skull, how can joy exist?" say the zen Buddhists.

The Dhammapada, a well know Buddhist text, begins, "ALL things are led by mind, created by mind....."
