What can you do to it? Cleave it with your broadsword? Hack it with your ax? Spit upon it? It will only throw it back in your face. What else could man be, I thought, that would give him such free movement, such power; that could never be captivated by the limited nature of man; that would permit him to be in all places at all times and, unlike man, never dies? To me the wind was an ultimate essence, for it is ongoing, free-moving, all-consuming. It has no boundaries and no form. It is magical, exploratory, and adventurous, and that indeed is the closest resemblance there is to the God essence of life.
There was life, far greater than we had ever perceived it to be. lt was through this realization that I would understand in the years to come that man is the greatest of all things; that the only reason the sun is ongoing, while man dies, is the sun never even contemplates death. All it knows is to be. When I realized through contemplative thought who the Unknown God was and what it was, I did not wish to wither and die, as the old woman had died. There must be a way, I thought, to be as ongoing as the sun.
That is when peace came. That is when I began to know more. That is when I became one with the Unknown God. It was not the wind that I became but the ideal that the wind represented to me. I am now the lord over it, for I became the unseen principle that is free and omnipresent and one with all life. It was when I became that principle that I understood the Unknown God and all that it is - and all that it isn't - because that is what I wanted to understand. I found the answers within me that allowed me to expand into a grander understanding.
