Ghosts, if they exist, don’t qualify as “Spirit” in God’s eyes –
Neither does any amount of religious enthusiasm –
Spirit is not part of any “Trinity” either, no matter what the Church says –
Nor does it reside solely in people’s immaculate minds.
In fact, Spirit isn’t even “mystical” –
Any more than anything else is.
“Spirit” can best be identified as waking up when you’re already awake!
The West doesn’t value this –
Nor has it even been curious about it –
Mainly, because Spirit isn’t available for commercial or political manipulation –
In fact, the West gave up its love for Spirit a very very long time ago.
Today, we’re like children playing in the sand
Intent on carrying out made-up roles –
Spending time quietly with one another
Until our parents finally call us home.
