The human experience can be confusing at times. Let’s attempt to carefully describe the different working components involved in a typical person’s metaphysical experience.
Within a single person, there is a division between the self and the other, that grows weaker as a person ages. As the self spends more time with the other, the two intermingle and become more mutually interactive. The “self” is composed of mind, body, and spirit. The “other” is composed of all the things outside the self that nevertheless contribute to the formation of the self. The self impacts the other, and the other impacts the self, such that the past, present, and future condition of the person’s self and their environment are altered as time passes. Let’s examine this further.
The mind: This is the portion of a person’s experience that includes conscious thought, language, intellectual directives, and memories.
The body: This is the portion of a person’s experience that includes the corporeal form, including all of the elements of a person’s physical experience that act upon the other as commanded by a person’s spiritual intent.
The spirit: This is the portion of a person’s experience that includes the vague, ephemeral, wordless realm of unconscious thought, emotion, sensation, and desires.
This is the portion of a person’s experience that includes all parts of a person’s environment that are not incorporated within the self; essentially it is the entire physical environment, composed of multiple entities, each with their own self-containment, that all exist outside a particular self.
As time passes, it is more easy for the mind, body, and spirit of the self and the other to intermingle, interact, and affect one another.
