Spirit is another word for breath.
Pause in the space between
space between the coils of molecules and atoms
Dogs, cats, giraffes, azaleas, humans and minerals
are filled with spirit, then.
Creation breathing itself alive
What is aliveness? What is it that wakes DNA from its sleep?
Breath flowing from what? From where?
Is this why the awakened ones say
that what you seek, what seems so distant, so impossible to know, or non-existent
is as close to you as your breath?
Where is God? Who is God? What is God?
And then I read:
Devi: ” O Shiva, what is your reality? What is this wonder-filled universe? What constitutes seed? Who centers the universal wheel? What is life beyond pervading forms? How may we enter it fully, above space and time, names and descriptions? Let my doubts be cleared?”
Shiva: “Radiant one, this experience may dawn between two breaths.”
