Indomitable Spirit

Spirituality is ‘of the spirit’
No more than that
Spirit is that essence within us
Unnamable and unknowable
But without which we are nothing
To develop indomitable spirit
Means to keep going
To keep walking
No matter what
With a dignity and humility
To walk through it all
As the stories, the tragedies and dramas slip by
As the days ebb away
As life’s spring
Becomes death’s fall
To walk willingly
With an indomitable spirit
Noble of heart even in brokenness
Neither higher nor lower
Neither more than or less than
But with the grace
Of a zen master
In presence
And openness
Until there is no more you.
