Spirit, Soul, Body – A Trilogy

Spirit Soul Body

The spirit and soul are 2 parts of the essential elements of us as a human being. The third being the vehicle – our bodies.

“… and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept …” – 1 Thessalonians 5:23

Knowing how they differ from each other is a great help in knowing more about yourself. It is useful to understand the different roles and function these 3 parts of us have. Man is made of two kinds of “stuff” being Physical (Body) and Non-physical (Spirit & Soul)

The Human SpiritThe Body:

  • is the vehicle that carries out our choices and action.
  • is the receptor of our senses and experiences
  • processes our responses to our experiences (like/dislike, hot/cold)
  • communicates our disconnect from spirit
  • is unique, to each and every human being.
  • is active from birth to death

The Soul:

  • is unique, to each and every human being.
  • contains all the memories of your lifetimes.
  • consists of your ancestral karma, perception, and experiences.
  • carries your potentialities, talents, and abilities.
  • is your blueprint in life.
  • is heavily influenced by the mind and our ego.

The Spirit:

  • is an awareness that is always present in the Now.
  • is a vessel serving as your direct connection to God, the Source.
  • provides you the Consciousness of Self.
  • connects your intuition.
  • is where your life purpose stems from.

Trilogy of manOur Source of Discomfort

Connected, the spirit is source that lights up our souls. It is this lack of connection to that results in dis-ease and the emotions of:

  • Depression
  • Disconnection
  • Unworthiness
  • Lack of purpose

Anthony Fisichella tried to explain that the Spirit is like the electricity that lights up the bulb, which is the soul – in his book, One Solitary Life: From The Unknown To The Known?.

From Luke 16:19-31, we know that the spirit of man consciously survives death. Death is the separation between the body (physical), from the non-physical. When we die, our body returns to dust, but we pass with all our earth memories intact.
