God breathes

God breathes August 1, 2017

The breath of God blows through all of creation and through each of us.
The seeds of creation are in each of us.

We are stardust
Billion year old carbon
We are golden

In Hebrew, the word for Spirit, ruach, means breath. Ruach is a feminine word.
So, in Genesis 1, when

… the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

The Spirit is feminine. God blows her breath across the face of the waters.
Any verse in Hebrew scripture that speaks to the Spirit of God is referencing a feminine God.
This also applies to the Wisdom of God. Wisdom, Sophia in Greek, is also feminine.
The Greek word for Spirit is pneuma, which has a similar meaning to ruach.
The English word Spirit comes from the Latin, spiritus, which means breath.

The Spirit of God, the breath of God, blows from the first page of the Hebrew scripture across the Gospels, through thousands of years, to the very breath you take, now.
The Bible written at different times, by different people, in different lands, in different languages, always carries the same breath of God.
The Spirit of God has always existed. Like our own breath, it is constantly present in our lives.
The feminine Spirit moves upon the face of the waters, across the earth, and in our lives.
Each of us, no matter our home or language, carries the Spirit of God.
God is the air we breathe and the life within us.
Each of us is touched by the Divine Breath.
