It demands a great deal of attention, discipline, patience and time, which is precisely the reason this path runs between the two most difficult, most restrictive spheres of the Tree. For most of us, the family stands as our central connection to love. It nourishes all kinds of love: unconditional love of the parents to their children, brotherly love between siblings, romantic love between the spouses and friendly love among cousins. But familial love can and often does strangle, restrict and fence us in. We feel it often with family obligations and the psychological neuroses inherent in many parent-child bonds. The family is protected by the home, in a sense the physical vessel for love. But this notion of family doesn’t imply blood ties exclusively. People create loving, functioning families at work, with friends and in many other groups and settings. This road of the protected home is also the path of meditation. Meditation requires stillness, inner quiet
and discipline. Its purpose is to help you find the home within.
