Life And Spirit

IMG_1230.JPG

I cannot see heat but I know it exists.
I can feel the warmth even if sometimes I do not know the source.
In winter, heat and warmth gives comfort against the cold.
In summer, the hot weather may cause some discomfort.
In the absence of heat, there is cold.
And a cold body is often a dead body.
I know I am alive because of the heat that energizes my body.

I do not see the air but I know it exists.
But I know the breeze that refreshes is caused by the wind.
And so is the destructive typhoon or hurricane.
I see smoke in the distance or clouds floating high above.
They are pushed by the wind and bring the water that sustains life.
The rustling of the trees. The crashing of the waves.
Even the birds on flight. Because of the wind.
I am alive because of the wind that energizes my body.

I do not see my Source but I know He exists.
There is no compelling reason why I should be here, now.
Yet here I am.
It is His will that I should be here.
I imagine myself be formed out of star dust.
After He has fashioned me out of clay and mud,
He fires me with heat to bake and make me.
And then He breathes air into me.
I am alive because of my Source who has created me
and gifted me with a body and soul.
