First and last

The word for “spirit” and the word for “breath” are the same or nearly the same in many languages, including Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Arabic, Polish, Norwegian, Danish, Maori, Japanese, Russian, Thai, Chinese, and Sanskrit.

When I was born, my first breath was an inhale. At that moment I arrived.

When I die, my last breath will be an exhale. At that moment I will depart.

I believe that my breath/spirit came from and will return home somehow. For me, home is with the God of my understanding.

Where did your first breath come from and where will your last breath take you once this life is over?
