The Bible says that human is composed of three distinct parts: spirit, soul, and body. We teach that human beings are composed only of two parts soul and body. According to this concept, the body is the part of man which can be seen, and the soul is the part which is unseen. The Holistic approach of body, mind and soul is the work as a system of energy. We connect our body, mind and soul to keep energy flowing within us. This energy flow can be abundant or restricted, depending on our ‘state of being’ in each moment and it changes constantly. In the Holistic philosophy the mind is the experience of joy in everything we do, treat others with love and respect, treat ourselves and our bodies with love and respect and have a sense of purpose. The mind registers and filters emotion and registers nerve impulses generated by the body. When the mind is
functioning as intended, it is self-aware, focused and quiet as required. So the mind has two choices: to block out sensation or to listen to it. The soul is ultimately responsible for giving the body its life force. The soul guides and directs our behaviour and actions in the physical form. When the soul chooses to leave the physical body, the body perishes.
The soul is driven by wisdom and love, the body, our outer shell, is a product of both the mind and soul and how it is cared for on a daily basis. As we can understand in here is the mind and the soul are spiritual thinking philosophy but not took as a mind-soul-spirit entity, the terms “soul” or “spirit” mean something invisible and immortal that exists in us, at death this invisible part of a human leaves the body and lives on.
The body: The physical aspect of the human being. It consists about 50 trillion cells which organize to form tissue, nerves, bones, and organs. The body expresses itself inthe language of matter, atoms, particles, and molecules.
The mind-brain is the mental/emotional aspect of the human being. The mind-brain processes thoughts and ideas as well as feelings and emotions. The mind-brain is consciousness, memory, and imagination. The mind-brain communicates in the language of creative expression such as music, art, and poetry.
The mind-soul is a non-physical aspect of the human being. It is our personal and individuated expression of the divine. The mind-soul is that part of us that longs to have meaning and seeks answers. The soul is eternal spirit, the vital force within all things. This spirit may be called God, the indescribable organizing principle of the universe and its language is pure energy.
The thoughts and emotions are activity of the mind-soul-spirit.The body, the mind-brain and the mind-soul are the components that define our specie, the whole human being. The soul is: psyche, inspiration, energy, conscience, courage, feeling, genius, intellect, intelligence, mind, spirit, thought anima, animus, essence, quintessence, substance.
Every time a child is born, he inherit the mind of the body, the brain, or the body mind. The mind-soul and the body-mind work as one. The Body Mind is a dominant ruler. It takes all the power that we call the Ego. The mind-soul is the spirit and it is the part that leave our body at our death and reach the other spirits of the univers. At this point we do not know what happen to it really, does it stay there in the noosphere? Does it reincarnate? Or does other tasks? We have no solid proof information about it.
The human spirit have three main functions: conscience, intuition, and communion.
- The conscience is the part of the spirit which distinguishes right from wrong a spontaneous direct judgment.
- The intuition is the “knowing” part of the spirit. All true knowledge originates from the mind-spirit. Revelations of God the Holy Spirit are known to the believer through his intuition.
- Communion is the third function of the spirit related to the worship of God and connecting with other mind-spirit-soul in the noosphere.
The spirit world referring to ghost.
In our Canon Catechism at question number 11. What is a Spirit?
- The human soul = our thought = the Spirit
- The Holy Spirit = the Holy Thought or GOD a Pure Spirit
- The Cosmic Christ = the Thought of GOD Creator a Pure Spirit
If a spirit is a thought, it is non-physical meaning it cannot be seeing, it cannot talk, even less have manifestation of any kind.
Wikipedia.org: A ghost known as a spectre, phantom, apparition, spirit, spook, or haunt is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear, in visible form or other manifestation, to the living. Descriptions of the apparition of ghosts vary widely from an invisible presence to translucent or barely visible wispy shapes, to realistic, lifelike visions. The deliberate attempt to contact the spirit of a deceased person is known as necromancy, or in spiritism as a séance. The belief in manifestations of the spirits of the dead is widespread, dating back to animism or ancestor worship in pre-literate cultures. Certain religious practices, exorcisms, and some practices of spiritualism and ritual magic, are specifically designed to rest the spirits of the dead. Ghosts are generally described as solitary essences that haunt particular locations, objects, or people they were associated with in life, though stories of phantom armies, ghost trains, ghost ships, and even ghost animals have also been recounted.
A notion of the transcendent, supernatural, or numinous, usually involving entities like ghosts, demons, or deities, is a cultural universal. In pre-literate folk religions, these beliefs are often summarized under animism and ancestor worship. Some people believe the ghost or spirit never leaves Earth until there is no-one left to remember the one who died. In many cultures malignant, restless ghosts are distinguished from the more benign spirits involved in ancestor worship. Ancestor worship typically involves rites intended to prevent revenants, vengeful spirits of the dead, imagined as starving and envious of the living. Strategies for preventing revenants may either include sacrifice, i.e., giving the dead food and drink to pacify them, or magical banishment of the deceased to force them not to return. Ritual feeding of the dead is performed in traditions like the Chinese Ghost Festival or the Western All Souls’ Day. Magical banishment of the dead is present in many of the world’s burial customs. The bodies found in many tumuli (kurgan) had been ritually bound before burial, and the custom of binding the dead persists, for example, in rural Anatolia. Nineteenth-century anthropologist James Frazer stated in his classic work, The Golden Bough, that souls were seen as the creature within that animated the body.
Another widespread belief concerning ghosts is that they are composed of a misty, airy, or subtle material. Anthropologists link this idea to early beliefs that ghosts were the person within the person (the person’s spirit), most noticeable in ancient cultures as a person’s breath, which upon exhaling in colder climates appears visibly as a white mist. This belief may have also fostered the metaphorical meaning of “breath” in certain languages, such as the Latin spiritus and the Greek pneuma, which by analogy became extended to mean the soul. In the Bible, God is depicted as synthesizing Adam, as a living soul, from the dust of the Earth and the breath of God. In many traditional accounts, ghosts were often thought to be deceased people looking for vengeance, or imprisoned on earth for bad things they did during life. The appearance of a ghost has often been regarded as an omen or portent of death. Seeing one’s own ghostly double or “fetch” is a related omen of death.
The Hebrew Torah and the Bible contain a few references to ghosts, associating spiritism with forbidden occult activities. The most notable reference is in the First Book of Samuel, in which a disguised King Saul has the Witch of Endor summon the spirit or ghost of Samuel. In the New Testament, Jesus has to persuade the Disciples that He is not a ghost following the resurrection, Luke 24:37–39 (some versions of the Bible, such as the KJV and NKJV, use the term “spirit”). Similarly, Jesus’ followers at first believe Him to be a ghost (spirit) when they see Him walking on water.
Most of the Christian Church considers ghosts as beings who while tied to earth, no longer live on the material plane. Some Christian denominations teach that ghosts are beings who linger in an interim state before continuing their journey to heaven. On occasion, God would allow the souls in this state to return to earth to warn the living of the need for repentance. Jews and Christians are taught that it is sinful to attempt to conjure or control spirits in accordance with Deuteronomy XVIII: 9–12.
9 When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. 10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you.
