On Belonging - David Whyte

We are the one part of creation that knows what it’s like to live in exile. The ability to turn your face toward home is one of the great human endeavors and great human stories. No matter how far you are away from yourself, no matter how exiled you feel from your contribution to the rest of the world or to society, as a human being, all you have to do is enumerate exactly the way you don’t feel at home in the world, to say exactly how you don’t belong, and the moment you’ve uttered the dimension of your exile, you’re already taking the path back to the way -- back to the place -- you should be. You’re already on your way home.
