"The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home."   Confucius
 

  Every day we go into the world to create and make our

way, be it to a job or a business.  We enter each day

with the attitude of accomplishment and achievement.  

However, for most people, during the day we meet some 

sort of obstacles or roadblocks.  It could be a 

customer who changes the scope of the project that you 

just completed the night before, the bank who needs 

just one more piece of information to complete the loan 

you needed yesterday or the guy who cut us off in 

traffic, caused us to run off the road and miss the 

most important business meeting of our  career.  We

rise to the occasion as each monster rears its ugly

head.  Each time, we expend just a little bit more of

our energy that we had planned to use on another 

objective.  By the end of the day we are usually one, 

two or even three steps behind where we wanted to be, 

worn out and ready to retreat to a place where we have 

peace and serenity. 


"A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body."  
                                
Margaret fuller 
 

  This although different,  holds true for our children.

They encounter just  as much stress, be it  their

worlds as we adults do.   They are stressed by peer

pressure to act and be  different than they are taught

at home and  by television and the media to

become something that they are not.  These stresses can

 be overwhelming and we are all looking for a place

 where we can escape from these pressures.   

     If everyday was like the one described above and you were not able to rebuild your energy, you would begin to find yourself running on reserves, feeling exhausted, like you can never get ahead of the game.  Running on reserves can work for a while if you are still in your 20’s and maybe even your 30’s but eventually your reserves can be depleted and you are as the song goes "running on empty".  The stresses of each day are piled upon the stresses of the day before and the day before that, until you no longer have the patience and tolerance to deal with seemingly insignificant issues as they arise. These stresses also can make us feel less then capable, which makes dealing with situations even more difficult.  This level of stress, when not dealt with, can impact your performance at work and your ability to nurture and grow interpersonal relationships, leaving you feeling like you are in a rut with no way out.    
     
If your energy levels are at their peak you have a greater chance of successfully creating new opportunities and dealing with the day-to-day experiences and pressures.  You have the ability to clearly see and deal with each issue as it is and not through the filter of stress, frustration and feeling less than. This clarity when added to peak performance can assist you in achieving what ever you desire.  We all have had those rare days when everything came together, when you were in the right place at the right time, when the answer to all of your bosses questions were on the tip of your tongue. Some call this synchronicity or coincidence.  But how does this happen? How can we create this on a daily basis?        

      To achieve this level of clarity and performance 

you must have an environment away from the demands and 

chaos of the everyday world, where you can go to 

rejuvenate, rebuild your energy and find clarity.  Many 

people think that they can find this state of being on 

a vacation in Hawaii or some place similar.  But, 

usually this state of being is only temporary. 

  This level of being that you seek must be nurtured on 

a daily basis in an environment without stress, tension 

and conflict.   A successful environment for nurturing 

your level of clarity, and performance will be calming, 

uplifting and healing.   For most the physical and 

interpersonal environments of your home will be this 

place.
      

     The balance and harmony in your home is a critical 

factor in dealing with these stresses and are important 

for your success and happiness. When a home feels 

calming and nurturing, with no distractions, you can 

quiet the mind and sort out what is important and what 

is not.  You can create new ideas on how to proceed and 

how to handle obstacles.  You can start to see clearly 

what actions need to be taken.  When life is full of 

complications it is often hard to distinguish the 

forest from the trees.  If you have clarity, you can 

sort out all of the issues and deal with them one at 

time, making clear decisions on each issue instead of 

complicating each issue with other issues.  This type 

of clarity will also give you the ability to see 

solutions that you could not see before.  This clarity 

will also assist you in nurturing your interpersonal 

relationships that are necessary for a full and 

complete life. 

      Unfortunately because of the pressures of society to achieve at all costs, today, some houses have become purely investments and places to impress clients, customers and friends. These houses have been designed strictly for the purpose of business and profit and that is the master that they serve. In these situations the home is completely ignored, leaving no refuge for the soul to rejuvenate.  Notice the usage of the words house and home.  A house is just a physical structure, where a home is a physical structure that has been created for the purpose of nurturing the soul.  Ironically, if the house were used for the purpose of nurturing and healing the soul, success in the outside world would come much easier. In today’s fast pace world it is even more important to create homes instead of houses.  Homes designed for business, investment and to keep up with the Jones’s, also ignore family identity and intimacy.  This loss of family identity undermines the stability of the family and the role models set for children.  The loss of intimacy starts to breakdown communication and the core of family relationships.  These problems just add to the stress level in the home, complicating our lives.    
     If we are to be successful in life we must start to address the environment where our ability to succeed is created.   As many psychologists have said and most people would agree, we are products of our environment.  But what parts of that environment shape us? How is it that some children who come from the worst of neighborhoods are able to rise above the circumstances of their external environment of crime and poverty? How is it that some children who come from homes that are in the best of neighborhoods and have ideal external environments end up with drug or alcohol problems?   Are the external factors in our environment like the city that we live in or the size of the home the factors that shape us?  No, it has to do with the internal environment we live in.  That child rises out of the ghetto because somewhere he/she received a nurturing environment that allowed them to rise above the circumstances.    

      It is the internal environment we live in that plays an integral part in creating the external aspects of our lives.  If your internal environment is one of balance and harmony, a space that is nurturing, where you feel safe, secure and at peace, you can let go of the days challenges and come back to your source of power.  Then you can start each new day refreshed and rejuvenated.
