There are many references to the home as metaphor for life/body:
Your body is a temple. (Corinthians)
The eyes are the windows to the soul. (Shakespeare)
Home is not just a place where you happened to be born.
it's the place where you become yourself. (Pico Iyer)
A house is made with walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams. (Emerson)
A house is like a body: the walls are like bones, the pipes are veins; it needs to breathe, it needs light and flow, and it all works together to keep us healthy and safe. (Crain)
Our contribution to the world begins with getting our house in order. (Gandhi)
There is an energetic connection between mind, body and home. The connection of a home to its owner is very similar to the mind-body relationship. Just as a computer was designed to mimic the human brain, our homes are designed to reflect our unique personal energy. Birds build their nests to follow the curvature of their bodies. We build our homes not only to fit, but to mirror ourselves. We are most content in a space that matches us physically and energetically. Space design for wellbeing has become recognized as a paramount focus in building standards for residential homes, corporate offices, community centers, healthcare facilities, retail stores, schools, and hotels. Environmental psychology studies have demonstrated the positive impact of conscious space design on workplace productivity and satisfaction. This same concept carries over to our personal livng spaces. Awareness of this vital power offers vital growth potential. A change to our home triggers a change to our life.
