A Heart That Is Whole — Home Is a Green Hill, Episode 5

Home is a deep psychological archetype, much more than a building with four walls and a ceiling. What does home mean, and how does this song teach us to discover the true vibration of our inner home? What is truly important to a yogi in life, outer success, or inner bliss? With this song, "Home is a Green Hill", Swami shows us through melody and poetic metaphor how to tune into and cultivate the deep contentment of a heart that is whole.

Lyrics

Home is a green hill, home is a wind
Blowing betrayal, far, far away.
Home is the knowledge heaven is near,
Home’s the end of the fray.

Home is my heart’s land, home’s where I am;
Nothing can dim the light of my soul.
Home is forever, home is today,
Home’s a heart that is whole.

Often I dream that life is a play:
Laughter forever and skies never gray.
But when I’m silent, freed from all care,
I discover my home’s everywhere.

Home is a green hill, home is a wind
Blowing betrayal, far, far away.
Home is the knowledge heaven is near,
Home’s the end of the fray.

Swami Kriyananda: “Written for 'The Mystic Harp 2', its message is that home lies not in any place specifically, but resides forever in our own selves. ”
