Spirit is a Force
Spirit is a force that exists in the universe. It is energy. And to be a mature man is to be a spiritual one.
You may understand spirit as inspiration, an inner voice, life, the universe, or God himself. In The bible says what God is in John 4:24. It is written that God is a Spirit. God is spirit. A universal, omnipresent spirit.
When people, who are in spirit, or inspired, believe for something in their lives to come about, this universal energy, this internal source of power, makes it so. You may have noticed that truly spiritual people have everything they desire, want and believe. They accomplish what they set out to do. You and I too can live like this.
Spirit is an energy force that is all around us. And for those who believe in it, it is also inside us. Human beings are made of three things: body, soul, and spirit. Body is our physical body. Soul is our breath life, what makes us alive. And spirit is that which is part of the bigger universal whole. Again, you may call this invisible field of energy many things. I call it God, and what's inside you would be holy spirit. Spirit is that energy which connects you to everything. Look around you. You are made up of elements and energy, and so is everything else. The dirt and worms, the door and window, the flower and bird, the sun and stars. Everything.
Among us are enlightened folk, who seem to be fully aware of this spiritual connection to the universe. When you speak with them, they may reflect on the day that they became enlightened, or awakened to the true nature of things and themselves. Christians are born again. Buddhists experience satori. Others may have experienced a right of passage. At some moment, we become enlightened, and start to walk in the light and access that power to relieve much of the seemingly burdensome work of life and live a more than abundant one.
