Spirit. The axis upon which the wheel of our life turns.
It’s an easy thing to lose sight of. We tend to get caught up in the spokes of the wheel: our jobs, social status, money, political stance, world news, media. We become absorbed in a constant effort to fulfill all the practical requirements of our lives.
All the while spirit resides at the hub, at the center we return to, however eventually. Maybe we stay with it for only a passing moment, or maybe it’s much longer. Some might spend the rest of their lives operating out of a sense of spirit, devoted to its cause. Others might yearn for more of it, but continually put other things ahead of it. In any case, it remains the source of vastness in our hearts and minds, the intangible substance our lives are truly made of.
So may we all have the courage to trace a path back to spirit, to make a return journey. May we all become spirit-walkers.
