Life is in the Spirit

I caution that these are very deep thoughts. We are told we are made up of physical body, soul and spirit. This is true but not complete and certainly unable to teach us how to live best and where to focus attention for greatest impact and enjoyment and fulfillment in life. Physical life is the bones and marrow, the blood and guts, the neurotransmitters and muscles, organs, hormones, hippocampus, brain, automatic functions as breathing and reflexes with pain, purposeful functions as walking and thinking. This is our human form, our carnality, our base makeup, the physical self. When people focus on this, the most shallow part of their construct, we see behavior that grabs what it needs and wants, focuses on physical form, lusts, emotes, longs, drives for good or bad but just drives. There is instinct and materialism, the ability to work and move about. When people live here, their contentment is dependent upon their circumstances and environment being copacetic. This is a survival and dependent sort of thinking. Primal. Shallow. 

Deeper down is the soul that in my view contains the will and the drive to higher levels of existence. This is where everyone’s God – shaped void is (because He made us all and wants a loving relationship with us). Some recognize that and fill it with other spiritual things or gods or momentarily fill it with drugs or alcohol or sex addictions that elevate you momentarily and then leave again, the void still unfilled. This deeper level is the why people have to go deeper than the shallow to overcome addictions. This soul part is where the will also is. It can override the physical body when it is accessed and it’s power tapped into. This is a deeper level of function. Contentment here can only be reached when the God-shaped void is filled. Deeper level.

The deepest level is our spirit. This is where we access the spirit world. It is the deepest part of us and can trump all the rest when accessed and it’s power utilized. And here is where the Holy Spirit resides for those who are saved (have chosen to accept Jesus as Savior and this God as sovereign God). And when humble prayer is uttered in heart or soul or mouth, the Holy Spirit fills the God-shaped void in our soul and the result is a stronger permanent contentment called peace which is not dependent upon the lower levels’ situations or environments. The fruits of the Holy Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control) are signs and results/proof of the Holy Spirit being there. They are characteristics of God (the Holy Spirit being part of the trinity of God) that we have access to in the spirit that are not dependent on the physical body or soul but show up to train and use it properly and to full affect.

This is my understanding of life and how to make the most of it. I would urge everyone to accept Jesus Christ as Savior to receive the Holy Spirit and have this eternal fullest life possible and see for yourself.❤

On Hunting Dinosaurs for Health

Dinosaurs are extinct, they happened in the past. Yet they keep popping up all over the place. They are historical figures representing an event or problem or hardship or terror from the past. These dinosaurs died out a long time ago but just won’t stay dead. We revive them to make sense of it. We bring them back to look at them. Sometimes it even seems noble to learn from it or remind ourselves of what we survived. But the truth of it is that each time we resurrect these extinct dinosaurs who should stay extinct, we go against nature, we deprive ourselves of the food we need to live now by feeding creatures that should stay dead. By resurrecting dinosaurs and housing them, feeding them, paying them homage, we worship the beasts which are really dead shadows rather than living the now or preparing for the future. For our health, we must hunt the dinosaurs, kill them again, destroy the beasts before the distraction they provide eats away at our enjoyment of the nature and even God and His blessings and gifts for the moment. So to be healthy, we must hunt and kill the dinosaurs of the past and seek to acknowledge them no more in order to allow God to move us to a new level of living. The dead cannot help the living. The living must be done by people who are alive not clinging to dead dinosaurs. Life must be honored and valued and dead things cannot do that. Death celebrates death. Life celebrates God and live and truth and light and joy and peace and these things are so much better. So do yourself and your health a favor and hunt down your dinosaurs and kill them once and for all and live the way God made you to live- fully, passionately, personally, triumphantly, brilliantly, with joy and peace. Honor Him by living fully.
