We get the word human from humus. In Latin, humus literally means soil.
In other words, when humans (before they called themselves humans) first needed a word to agree on to describe who and what they were, they pointed to the dirt…the ground…the place of growth and the setting for decomposition to create what’s next.
And yet there’s also a dimension of Spirit with our grounded, ‘humusness’.
There’s soul moving in the soil.
Theres being happening in the biology.
There’s something divine playing in the space between our first breath and our decomposition.
We are cocktails of Heaven and Earth.
How will you put these two together?
Your answer is what I call the music.
