The Spirit of the MindWritten by Judy Sky
Spirit Overlaps Soul
The Spirit of The Mindis where the imagination, the understanding, the conscience is found.The Spirit of The Mindis an area of overlap between spirit and soul, where the highest part of the soul, which is the mind, is connected and has the potential for communication with the lowest part of the spirit, which is the conscience. The spirit overlaps the soul, and the conscience overshadows the mind with The Mind of Christ; our only right mind.
The lower part of the mind, that overlaps into the emotions is the carnal mind, and should not be the ruling part of the mind. It is base, emotional, sensual and fickle. It minds the things of this world.
The Mind of The Spirit is Life and Peace. The mind of the flesh is death.
HOPEFULLY A TIME COMES WHEN THE SOUL HAS BECOME MORE AND MORE AWARE THAT SHE IS FULL OF DEATH, FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH.
IDEALLY, AND ACCORDING TO PLAN, THE ‘OLD MAN’, OR THE ‘ADAMIC NATURE’, OR THE OLD HUMAN SPIRIT IS FOUND TO BE DEAD IN HIS SIN. THERE IS A PROCESSING, OR AN EVENT OR SOME KIND OF AN EXPERINCE OF REALIZATION AND RECOGNITION OF THE REALITY OF THE HOPELESS AND APPALLING CONDITION ONE HAS FOUND THEMSELVES IN APART FROM GOD. THIS MAY BE CONSIDERED ‘THE DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL’. DEPRESSION, DARKNESS, DISPAIR, AND HOPELESSNESS SOMETIMES ACCOMPANY THIS EXPERIENCE. THIS IS WHEN WE ‘GET TO THE END OF OURSELVES’. THIS IS WHEN WE ‘BREAK DOWN’ OR BECOME BROKEN. THE SACRIFICES OF GOD ARE A BROKEN SPIRIT AND A BROKEN AND A CONTRITE HEART (Psalms 51:17).
