The Holy Spirit is the true self -- the real me -- the child of God, within. This is the part of us that was created in God's image and likeness.
So many Christians get a distorted picture of the "trinity." Part of this may come from the delusion that they are inherently Homo sapiens. But they seem not to realize that God's image and likeness is not that of Homo sapiens. God wants His children back; not the bodies they wear.
Jesus is our brother. In a very real sense, he's like an "older" brother, even though we are all the same age -- timeless. Bless him for his unceasing love for us in helping in the rescue. He truly does deserve our devotion.
When the Holy Spirit (true self) is alive in you, miracles happen. You can no longer be a victim -- ever! Seas part, mountains move -- all of what Jesus promised. When the Holy Spirit is alive, you no longer need your Homo sapiens shell. You may still operate it, but you can see just fine without it. You can think just fine without the human brain you possess. This truly is the kingdom of heaven within.
