Background

A description of the experience

A Dictionary of Symbols – J E Cirlot

The ‘return home’ or to the ‘motherland’ … is symbolic of death not in the sense of total destruction but of reintegration of the spirit into the Spirit.  As the Chinese thinker Lieh-tzu observed, ‘when the soul leaves the form, both are restored to their true essence, and that is why they are said to have returned home’
