Does spirit exist in all forms of life?  Is there a divine spark within us if we look closely enough?

 

Some speculate that only humans can have spiritual intelligence – especially given the reluctance of apes, whales, dogs, and cats to hold seminars on the subject.  But then there are the macaque monkeys in Nagano, Japan, who allowed me to set up my camera and witness the intimacy of their relations with each other…  I photographed in a controlled state of ecstasy – look closely and perhaps you too will see the illuminating spirit that surrounds and lives within them.
