Jesus taught that the spirit is like the wind. Time is also like the wind, pouring like a waterfall out of the future, rushing through the present, and flowing swiftly out into the past. Space, too, is like the wind, since whatever space we are occupying is always changing – either it’s moving away from us or we’re moving away from it.
So, space and time – our world – turns out to be very much like the spirit, i.e., like the “wind”. One day we’re born at a specific place and time and the next day we’re dying at another place and time. In our lives, we’re blown like wind through these two points when, after carefully consulting our minds and hearts, we’ll discover we retain only our spiritual experiences –the love, truth, justice and beauty we’ve created in our lives – while nothing else remains.
