The Spirit is all Encompassing

What picture do we paint with words

What does a word represent

What does a word stand for

 

Like universe is a word

But the picture is that

Of one which encompasses much

The earth is a word

Also that which encompasses much

But itself encompassed by the universe

 

Two words, two different things

But they do the same thing

They encompass other things

And depend on each other

But we get a different picture of each

 

Our body encompasses

That within it

Just like the earth does

Just like the universe

Though on a smaller scale

 

Everything represents

Something else on a smaller scale

Same pattern, they do the same thing

Though different word—different object

But they are in fact the same thing

 

Everything follows suit

What holds true for something

On a bigger scale

Is true also on a smaller scale

 

Our body encompasses the soul

Our Spirit encompasses the universe

 

Creation

On reflection of my life

I start here

Where I am now

 

According to the Bible,

If the creation story holds true

Which it will,

We can all trace our line

Back to the garden

To Adam and Eve

The first man and first woman

The only two never born

And these two are one

 

But further back

Before Eve

There was only Adam

Yet she was with him

A part of him

A rib, some say

 

So she was present

With him

Before she was

Taken from him

And made to appear

Separate from him

 

Before that

There was no Adam

Only the dust of the ground

Out of which the man was formed

And became a living soul

After receiving the breath of life

 

Before that there was light

 

Before that there was

Heaven and earth

And God who created them

What is seen and what is not

The form and the formless

The particle and the wave

And these two are one

 

And between the creation

Of heaven and earth

And the light

Was the spirit of God

She who was with him

In the beginning

Before the dividing time

 

Genesis 1:2

“The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”
