Holy, for a small word, is a very vast notion. It encompasses so much of what we as humans use to describe that which has as many definitions as there are stars in the heavens above. While religion may try to con scribe holy to a specific set of conditions, in the end I believe what is holy is personal, and small like the word itself. For me, Holy is the split second of recognition of the divine in another being. A glimpse of the spark that connects all life, the purity of creation itself. I see it most often in the eyes of my dogs. Unconditional, unrestrained, unequivocal love, given without expectation of its return.
