Although I currently believe that the body and the spirit are pretty much the same thing, we have a different perspective that's hard to get rid of--since it's obviously true from a popular perspective--of the spirit dwelling within the body, going out of the body when the body is unconscious, and of the two in general being different things.
I don't want to contribute to this confusion but I have to deal with it somehow, so for one thing let's talk about taking a spirit bath.
Our bodies are well known to be 75% water... or is it 90%? Our home the earth, same story.
To clean our bodies we use the preferred inert solvent, water. "Inert" means that water dissolves your dirt, not your skin.
To find the preferred inert solvent with which we can clean our spirit, we look at our language. The Greek word pneuma is used for spirit and air equally. "Pneumatics" refers to technology that uses air and other gases as the power medium. Words relating to breathing include "inspire" which means the same thing as "inhale".
Air is the preferred inert solvent used for cleaning the spirit. To seek inspiration, try breathing. The more slop you are slogging through, the more you should be breathing.

*STALKERS in the world of Carlos Castaneda's sorcery teachings are practitioners who learn to escape from Earthville by working within Earthville social systems to develop mastery, whereas conversely, 'dreamers' are practitioners who learn how to escape Earthville by unworlding. Unfortunately the term 'stalker' was adopted by the Hoveltongue in its drive during recent decades to convince us that there is a 'stalker' hiding behind every tree, because it benefits the insurance and psychiatry industries--not to mention the home alarm industry--for everyone to be afraid of their own shadow. This modern propaganda buzzword refers to a person who is obsessed with another person and thus 'stalks' them, learning their habits and following them around. It's a side effect of allowing one's government and media to act like hoverparents and then believing all the threats they invent for us to be afraid of. Castaneda's prior term is unrelated. A stalker in Castaneda's world would be stalking his own freedom.
