Being a Third Culture Kid — someone who grew up in multiple cultures, Pico Iyer's talk about home makes me happy. He's view about home being less about a piece of soil and more about a piece of soul is very insightful. Pico, is not a believer, and yet he unwittingly echoes a truth proclaimed by Jesus about the Kingdom of God being inside of us. Also ironically for a non religious person, Pico has fantastic insights after spending some time in a monastery. He talks about how vital it is to stop movement in order to find stillness and direction. Again, echoing the need for Shabbat Shalom.
Beyond the soul. Pico talks about an exciting and important phenomenon. It's about a tribe of people, who are much more curious and flexible about learning cultures and world views that are different from theirs. There are over 200 million of us now. It could be one of the biggest countries in the world. No wonder the US president is half Kenyan and grew up in Indonesia and Hawaii.
Check it out. It's worth the 15 minutes or so.
