I've been told that the Holy Spirit is the love of the creators out in the world. (I believe that the universe required both a male and female creator to bring it into being.) It wants us to live heartfully out in the world, to bring ourselves fully to what we do, and to have compassion for others as well as ourselves. It means an active part for us in life.
The question, then, is how do we navigate between the two? Spending all our time in meditation means that we have little or no time to act. However, spending all our time presenting our spirit to the world through action means little or no time to go deep within. As with many things in life, it means finding a balance that makes sense to us.
Or at least I believe so.
