I strongly discourage you from visiting your home country if you are in the process of applying for asylum. Returning to your home country completely contradicts the fact that you claim you fear persecution in that country. If you have more specific details or concerns, contact an immigration attorney.

Do you presently have the ten year green card? Once your green card is secured, a visit to the country where you feared for your life is acceptable. I always recommend my clients for political asylum NOT to visit the home country BEFORE the green card is issued.
You are advised against returning to your native country if you were granted asylum in the United States. You sought asylum because you feared persecution and did not want to return to your native country it is counterintuitive that you would now voluntarily return. If you have an urgent need to return, you should schedule a private consultation with an experienced immigration attorney.

If you've had a green card long enough, you should naturalize. That would be the safest thing to do. THe longer you've had your green card the less likely you are to have a problem But if you've had the green long enough, why not apply for citizenship?
