You should go home to your hermitage; it is inside you.

Close the doors, light the fire, and make it cozy again.

That is what I call ‘taking refuge in the island of self.’

If you don’t go home to yourself, you continue to lose

yourself. You destroy yourself and you destroy people

around you, even if you have goodwill and want to do

something to help. That is why the practice of going 

home to the island of self is so important. No one can

take your true home away. – Thich Nhat Hanh
