Out Only?

OutOnlyFunny how the city painted this on the street curbside in front of my house!

When it comes to spirit, is it really “out only”?

The sidewalk in front of my house needed to come out because the tree roots had made it uneven. Rather than have it simply moved over, where damage might have been done to the tree, I chose to have it removed completely. But that’s beside the point.

The question got me wondering, and my first response is “no.” My experience is more like breath. Going in and out, in and out is part of how it operates. Not “in only” or “out only” ever because the multiple rhythms of  life support the movement, in and out.

On the other hand, we are expanding. The universe, consciousness, creativity… and once something is known or expressed, in and out-of-the-bag sort of fashion, it does not go back in. The direction forward, the direction of growth, in general is spirit out.

That’s one way to look at it. What do you think?
