Early on some one said soul was related to Emotion.

Food for thought: who or what makes you angry.
the answer is YOUR THOUGHTS make you angry.
And to a great extent all emotions are the result of thinking.

If a young person has been dating another for several years
and she sees him coming out of a dark room with a rival for his
love and company in most cases she will become angry at him
But if she has been trying to break up the romatic relationship
with him Without hurting his feelings her emotional response
very likely will be one of JOY , clapping her hands and being
happy . Especially if she is a nice compassionate lady
who DOES not want to hurt his feelings by informing him
IT IS finished.
I will not try to make MY BELIEF MORE clear by saying
the First thing that happens in HER BODY is the light that
hit their two bodies COMES to her eyes and moves to her mind
and SHE IS STILL not angry. Then the light moves to her mind
and she is STILL not angry when the picture is being made in
her mind. THEN she THINKS about what she is seeing
AHA, now she is angry if she still wants him
HER thinking -thoughts= made her angry

Alvino,

That may be, but my spirit and my soul guide my mind allowing it to transcend above an initial thought, even if that thought may be anger at first (in an extreme instance). Not to mention that in most instances in life, and those are not ruled by negativity, my mind is constantly being inspired and guided by my soul and my spirit, so during all this time, it is being affected by positivity and beauty. That impact allows it to do more good, so that my reaction, even under extreme circumstances, is not what some may expect or call "normal".

Some more food for thought. :)

Sabina, you just GAVE me a Gold Mind in the form
of your use of your soul.
I am going to try very hard to USE MY SOUL to
control my anger and hopefully some day I can use my soul as you do
TO STOP angry in its tracks before it takes the second step.

\ thank you.

"What is the wave for the ocean, that is the soul for the spirit"

Deepak Chopra

I love this quote as this, on the level of my feelings, expresses beautifully the whole correlation of Soul and Spirit.
Soul is spirit in moving, transforming, changing ...but all the time not separated from the spirit.
In the depth of the spirit is the energy for the soul to express the journey of experiences.

regarding these three "things".
when we get it all done = can we work on WHO MADE GOD?
I personnally worked and worked with ALL the concentration and brain muscle I could
muster seeking the answer for a few days. I started with WHO or what made ME.

FINALLY, without the slightest doubt in my mind, soul and spirit, I went - absolutely INSANE
for a few seconds.
PS. I truthfully, throughyly enjoyed the experience of being Insane and the knowledge
I gained from being insane for those few moments.
I Still love the LOST feeling and the knowledge that my few seconds of insanity gave me.
This was when I was about 20 years old.
I repeat, I love hearing what each one of you have determined about what the mind,
spirit and soul are.
One of you said the SOUL has immense knowledge. I am certain it does and I am
certain almost No one hears Messages from our Souls. I believe TO hear these
messages we must train OUR MIND TO totally and completely become SILENT
of Shut Up or else it is impossible for our Body to Hear those messages.
I thought of asking one of you If you believe our Soul arrives with an awesome amount
of knowledge. And one of you said our MIND continues to BE forever.
So " Since our Mind exists Forever =
" DO we take all of our earthly learned knowledge with us to Heaven."


For what I have gotten out of seeing/feeling/being, is that there are different beings(more in of whom you maybe thinking you are/the idea of it) That there are different types of bodes for no one of us are the same, just seem the same, for the way the body is is the way that you will be able to learn what needs to be learned in such away of being in the way, so that all is seen for such learning of being....for all is right, in no matter they way that you have it.

To me, there is no distinction between soul and spirit. These are part of a energy that is loosely connected to the mind and body, but fluid. Our souls can reach out and touch other people, connect with the "spiritus mundi" that surrounds us.

=0/ I think that the mind is the doorway to everything, without choosing what to imagine first you can't explore spirit or soul. So if you want to use your imagination and go to parts of you that you think might be there, then there are lots of books on it. You have to practice to believe and if you think that meditational practices are for you, you can uplift yourself beyond belief because you changed your b =0o eliefs.

They say....'the mind is a great instrument, but a terrible master...'

I think this is true, but we are more than our mind, we are what observes the mind...maybe we could call it consciousness, we have the ability to connect with something deeper than the mind...we probably need to do that to live with conscience and an appreciation of Truth, Love and Beauty.

To go beyond the mind is to go back to source, to connect with who we are in Truth, only then can we trust that we are connected to something greater than ourselves, only then can we follow the path that our heart has chosen. There is a great risk in blindly following what we think is right based only on the thinking mind, which is why we need to go beyond that.

There is a gentle knowing when we connect with something deeper, an understanding that takes us where we would rather go.
I dont think there is a dramatic or fundamental shift necessary in our thinking to connect, i believe its subtle and available in any moment we choose to stop and ....listen.

Do we stop and listen.....?

....the heart only whispers, be still and listen....
