Understanding Mind Body Spirit – The Trinity Explained

The mind is very active, and when it chooses to be separated and conflicting it can only perceive. It does desire to know, and chooses carefully out of uncertainty when it perceives. Even when we think about the process of our mind body spirit, we see it in a physical sense, often relating it to our brain, rather than our connection to the universe.

Mind body spirit is union while in this world, and You as the One whole Mind of God are the Trinity eternally.

God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are each a level in the whole Mind of God, the Trinity explained, and are the only levels capable of Unity.

The part of your mind that will hang onto perception can not separate itself from spirit, and will be joyfully bridged over to knowledge. Spirit is where the power to create abides, and the more it creates, the more mind body spirit perception will cross the bridge to knowledge. Knowledge will increase.

It is the total, undeniable truth that you are. This is not perceived by us; but it is known.

It is important to respect the laws that rule the physical universe as a reflection of Who we are beyond the material world, spirit and soul, if you will. I mean that violation of these laws threatens our mind body spirit survival.

Internally– meaning within our true essence, or spirit and soul, that inner altar where we abide– is the universe that supports our survival as well, both emotionally and psychologically. The internal equivalent to oxygen is love, which comes from our spirit

The universe I talk about here does not entail the stars, moon, and the galaxies we gaze at on a beautiful night.

The universe I speak of here is literally meant to mean “all that is real.” Of course externally, the physical universe we can see does support our physical existence.

All things made by the separation are in conflict, because they are meaningless to each other. Their only function is for themselves. In the Trinity explained, Spirit has no conflicting degrees that are either measured or translated.

Perception needs translation and transcending, but knowledge does not.

It becomes in the service of spirit, where perception is changed. This will produce gradual overriding of perception by knowledge, when truth is tapped into. When truth and knowledge are one you will know this as spirit, or many like to say, spirit and soul, and more clearly understand the Trinity explained.

Often we try to ask our human thinking for the Trinity explained, but as we humans are we get caught up in misperceived notions. Because it brings your mind body spirit into areas of uncertainty, perception in general always involves some misuse of your mind. Otherwise it wouldn’t be perception.

Photosynthesis in plants and plankton in the ocean produce oxygen that we need in order to breathe.

The function of perception is to interpret. This permits you to misinterpret your body as who you truly are, in an attempt to escape from the conflict you made.

They are discovered through spirit and soul. They are not dependent on our body or spirit. Spirit is merely one with these laws, and when understood, the Trinity explained.

The laws of the universe merely describe the way things truly are. The laws were not invented by man.

What these egos might perceive as an attack from knowledge is that knowledge can not lose; but the attacker is really perception in conflict. Your mind will return to its proper function, leaving behind all your subordinate functions the ego– which is all about the body, made, only when it wills to know.

Other ego minds might perceive knowledge as an attacker, though it can not attack.

The Breath of Being – A Self-Reflective Case Assessment on Mind, Body, Spirit

In Latin, the word spirit means breath, as well as spirit, as well as air. In many ways, this word perfectly embodies the essence of this course “Mind, Body, Spirit”; for the term is as much about the breath in our body, as our spirit which is synonymous to breath, as it is to air, or in other words, the space to which illumination can occur.

One afternoon this Winter, I was walking with a friend who turned to me and said “Wake up!” Taken aback, I had no idea what she was talking about at first. As we began to banter about it, I realized this was the first stage of pre-contemplation. She had in fact initiated a conversation about something simple yet profound. That conversation in tandem with this course helped me to begin a process of contemplation.

My ambivalence came in the form of questions- Had I not been in touch with each moment of my life? In what ways had I been suppressing my own life? What does it really mean to be ‘in the moment’? As I continued to ponder these questions, I realized that certain events in my life had led me to believe that in some ways whatever I did or said didn’t really matter in the world. Perhaps it was a form of learned helplessness as a result of living without a father who wanted to spend time with me and a mother too busy to notice.

But through this interaction with my friend, I felt inspired to live a more conscious and present life. It wasn’t as if I had a follow up visit scheduled with her, but the next time we met I told her about my new sense of determination and asked for guidance. We walked to the bookstore together, and through the maze of many aisles, she selected a meditative book for me written by a famous Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk.

With the new school term well underway, work and a whole of host of other responsibilities, I admit the book made it’s way into some unnoticed crevice of my room with haste. I intellectualized many reasons why I could not have time to read a book that I didn’t really have much interest in. The most important reason of all being that “This book isn’t going to tell me anything I don’t already know” – a quick and seemingly logical conclusion at the time.

Then, one lone evening evening after our class, I found myself thumbing through the pages and I discovered I was right: this book wasn’t going to going to tell me anything I didn’t already know. It in fact, it told me everything I already knew…and how to know it better! Every story contained was about living in the present moment through even the most seemingly mundane of activities, and each became a story of relevance to me mirroring some facet in my own life. The risk of not ‘waking up’ began to seem more costly than I had anticipated and the possibility of living a richer life became a motivation beyond any extrinsic reward.

Taking action, I decided to begin with something really simple: my breath. Who ever though the act of conscious breathing could be so intensive?! I’d sit down on the floor intent on savoring every breath in my body. No sooner had I started to inhale the speaker in my brain would make an announcement – “Must wash my dirty socks, buy a dozen eggs…” “No!” I’d remind myself. “I should be focusing on my breath” I spoke in self-reprimand. I’d try again: inhale, exha- “The dog is barking outside and if it doesn’t shut up…”

Now it was staring to get personal.;) Noticing these cognitive distortions and with my emerging value for compassion as demonstrated in the storybook, I decided to let go of my self-judgments and reactive thought patterns. Instead, whenever I noticed myself falling into mental distractions, I gently refocus my intention on feeling my breath. There can be such an ease in the passage of air through our system, whether by way of our lungs or through our minds, and it enlivens the spirit. The more I practiced this meditation, the more I found myself noticing the breath contained in day-to-day routines.

A couple weeks ago I awoke and decided that rather than rushing to turn on the morning news, I’d stop and admire the view out my window. Instead of dismissing the tree that usually obscures my city view, I suddenly noticed myself feeling moved by the air circulating through the crevice of each leaf pair. I realized that I wasn’t the only one breathing in this moment, but that all of life reverberates together.

I shared my new found observation with my friend. As if she had already sat through each of our class lectures, she reflected back to me the new found sensations of my experiences. She kindly offered her support by suggesting a form of partnership in joining her weekly meditation group. I accepted. This is now my maintenance routine. Not one to be fueled by rote habit, but one of conscious choice to live without feeling helpless but able.
