The spiritual cycle

And God said, “Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water.”So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it.   And it was so.     –   Genesis 1:6-7 

The intervening chapters of genesis describe the arrival of light in our world, presumably God is referring to the sun.  The sun would then begin to melt the frozen deep and water would begin to evaporate and the atmosphere and hydrologic cycle of earth would be started.  The expanse in this case would be earth’s atmosphere.

Separating water from water is a very apt description of the hydrologic cycle,  Water in rivers is separated from water that infiltrates into the ground.  And so the cycle begins.  Water under the expanse is the oceans and the water above the expanse is the water in the atmosphere.  Why separate them one might ask.  Without separation the cycle is not possible there can be no moving from one state to another to drive all of creation.

Perhaps there is an even deeper truth here about why God would separate himself from us, perhaps it is in the moving from one spiritual state to another that all the work of the spiritual realm is accomplished…interesting thought.  A “spiritual cycle” if you will in which we move between spiritual realms to participate in the dynamic spiritual reality we call life and death.

Prayer: God make me aware of your presence in all the spiritual realms of my life.  Help me to listen and look for ways that I am part of your “spiritual cycle”.
