    What is spirit?

    One take is that it is that which comes from the Absolute Silence, Creator and yet manifests or protrudes as Sound, the Creation. In its highest form, it is known as Sat, Chit, Ananda. (Existence, Consciousness, Bliss). Yoga philosophy refers to it as Consciousness and the western word is Spirit with a capital 'S.'

    Spirit pervades all and is in fact ALL. It is that which we call God, only not a man in any specific geographical place, but rather a divine Ground, a perennial Entity in which all things move and have their being. It is timeless, birthless and immortal, without beginning or end. Yet it is the same Spirit that manifests as form or Creation - sound in motion.

    It is also formless, unmanifest, visible and invisible and can take any form (Omnipotent) all-knowing (omniscient) and everywhere (omnipresent). Matter is also a form of Spirit. It is Spirit that infuses the Love in the Heart and Soul, sends them out and withdraws the soul when it has spent its course.

    All is Spirit. Spirits or ghosts are entities and not the same, although it is still effectively Spirit as all come from Spirit and all are Spirit. There is nothing outside the Divine.

    You will hear many words for this. Force, energy, vibration, Light, Love .... and much more. God is a timeless and a limitless or ever-transcending journey, manifesting or taking any form it so desires. It is not bound. Hope this helps.
