I was reminded today that the words for breath and spirit in most every great spiritual tradition are the same.
We all, from the lowest to the highest forms of complex life, share in the one great breath. The breath is our bridge of exchange between the finite and infinite realms. Before we can cry or speak or make sound out of the womb we must first breathe.
Truly it is up to the cosmic creator to give and take breath away.
