Understand that this Life in you, this mysterious Presence of Awareness, is holy and is divine. This force in you, which you rarely ever notice, never realizing its rarity or brilliance, is the very breath of God. What mortal on this earth can create Life from nothing, and gift it to you? The living do not create Life, they merely pass it on to their offspring, from their own supply, just as God, in the story of creation, passed his own Life on to Adam by breathing into his nostrils the breath of life, “and the man became a living soul.” (Genesis 2:7). Since God had the power to create the entire universe and everything in it, why did he not create a separate breath of life for Adam instead of giving Adam his own breath? That is a very, very strange and astonishing observation. Can it be because this power of Life is one whole, and cannot ever be more than one, because it is all? God himself is Life, and the Life in you is God, and is holy, and is divine.
