noun 1. the doctrine that God is the transcendent reality of which the material universe and human beings are only manifestations: it involves a denialof God's personality and expresses a tendency to identify God and nature. 2. any religious belief or philosophical doctrine that identifies God with the universe.   http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Pantheism  

Wordsworth suggests that his spiritual relationship with nature will be a part of him until he dies:

Until, the breath of this corporeal frame,

And even the motion of our human blood

Almost suspended, we are laid sleep

In body, and become a living soul:

While with an eye made quiet by the power

Of harmony, and the deep power of joy,

We see into the life of things.
