In this principle found in The Richest Man in Babylon, Clason encourages people who rent their homes to invest in it by purchasing it and taking pride in owning their own home. He reasons that the same money that renters spend on renting could be well utilised on a mortgage. This principle also has real-world relevance for our personal development.

Where is your inner dwelling or that sacred internal space? Joseph Campbell once said, “Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.” Take a moment and think of that space that allows you to feel safe, ‘found,’ and at peace. This inner dwelling will be different for each of us. For some, this inner dwelling is the heart, for others it is the soul, and still for others it is sacred memories and experiences.

While it doesn’t matter what you identify to be your dwelling, it does matter that you are willing to put in the time, effort, and tender loving care necessary to invest in that part of you. When you do so, you’ll reap many rewards. For those of us who may need help to cultivate our inner dwelling, it may be helpful to change some things in our outer environment.

Best of luck on this journey of defining your sacred space within and receiving all of the benefits that this entails!
