    No, I do not think they are all one. This is how I feel inside. It seems inside me that my mind orders my body, but  my spirit is independent of the two. For instance, I am 50 yet my spirit is still 19-20 (hasn't changed). However, my mind (conscious and subconscious) rule completely differently from the essence of my spirit. In the end it's a bit sad because my spirit is more like Scarlet O'hara yet I function more like hardened cement. How do you view the body-mind-spirit?

    Very interesting question by the way.

    Yes in a way.

    When we are living (alive) then it is a combination of 3 in one. But when we are in death, then it will be spirit.

    With our living body, we need our mind and spirit to keep us going.

    If you are walking in the light, then you are One as you were created to be. But if doubt, guilt, shame, or any other of the defeating emotions have a controlling in road to you, then you are divided, or full of confusion. On of the definitions of doubt is to have a double soul. If your eye be single, you are full of light, if your eye be evil (or double) then great is the darkness.

    Entirely disagree. The mind and body are entirely two different things. Those two are the easy ones to notice. However, the spirit is still up for debate. Mainly because the mind and the spirit could be the same because the mind is not the brain.

    No more than your hand, your watch and the glove you are wearing are one.  They all appear to be one, but we have a total of 7 different bodies.

    Physical body
    Mental body
    Etheric body

    and three more that are too sacred to mention online.  Each body resides in a different plane, but they are all attached to the physical body while it exists.

    I believe body, mind, and spirit are all connected - three parts that form a whole, but also have some individual functioning.  In the body you have the brain, heart, and lungs for example - all depend on each other, all will die without the other - but they also perform separate, important functions.

    You want the body, mind, and spirit to be as one. I believe that this is something that we earn over time instead of something that we already have. Finding the perfect combination of all three is where one would want to be. When you find that in your life, then I would agree that they are all as one. I believe in faith, you can find all three.

    It is my belief that the body is a product of the mind and the spirit is a product of both, working in conjunction. The essence of life, or spirit, is given at birth and improved upon as time moves on, within the mind and body that holds it in place. What we call genetics may be a little too simplified in defining the spirit. It is more, and is witnessed by others when they see and hear another person in their humanity, be it in goodness or in wrong doing. Spirit comes from deep within the recesses of the mind and body, to form the whole of each being that walks upon this earth. When we die, our spirit remains and will join the others in one great spiritual light. This is my personal belief. When we speak of the soul, I believe it is one and the same, as the spirit.

    Without meaning to offend anyone, I'm not entirely certain that the spirit exists? And if it does, I don't really know how it's any different from the mind? My mind is who I am, my thoughts, personality etc.
    I think that the mind and body are very much connected, but the mind is the more powerful of the two. If you are upset or stressed then you can also become physically ill, but if you are physically ill then you do not normally become unhappy. (Obviously I don't mean terminal illnesses or disabilities here, of course they are upsetting. I think they're not upsetting in themselves though, but they can depress you because you know they might kill you or radically change your life.)

    Soul not Spirit.

    Humans not Body.
    If I say so if you will allow me to say so because Spirit is not the word for Soul,Soul is eternal and spirit exists when soul enters the womb and spirit comes later.The Soul does not do anything it exists as per nature law as per your Karma it leads you,and goes away when the time comes.
    Your Brain controls your Body if your Karma allows it.
    Your Body is human and behaves as per your Karma as per nature law.
    Karma is what you carry from your past,if you carry good deeds you do good and other way also.

    For me, each is a facet, and what we truly are is the gem. Each face shows what is inside, and whatever is inside is visible in each facet. So what we are shows up one way in the body, another in the emotions, another in the thinking mind, another in our energy, another in our Soul, and another in Spirit. Both the pure and healthy, and also the cracks and flaws in us, inside the gem, show up in each of these facets.

    My feeling is that the spirit is manifested in the mind and the body. You can have the spirit without either one of the former, however they are connected. How connected depends on your acceptance or allowance to spirit in your being. For those that doubt their is a spirit, I ask you to consider the moments I think everyone has experienced of the first time you felt awe or wonder or deep love or even expansive peace. These things cannot come from the "little" mind, unless there is a pre-existence of the experience before. Your mind and a brain, neurons, etc - does not fabricate emotions of bliss, love, connections beyond being. Yes, there may be a God gene, but if science ultimately proves this to be true, is the gene the reason we can sometimes experience God or is the gene the conduit for God to be experienced through us.

    For me, there will always be different ways of looking at things - but the things that really resonate with us, these are the things that will impact our lives. If you don't believe there is a spirit, your experiences in life will support this belief, and so on. I believe there is a spirit because I have experienced it's presence in my life. I can't prove it or even adequately describe it, but I know it nonetheless.

    Without wishing to get into any form of religious discussion, my opinion is that the three forms are simply interpreted as:

    Body - Our physical form who's existence is transient and flawed.

    Mind - Our mental form which cannot be influenced by outside sources and where our innermost thoughts and dreams exist.

    Spirit - The very essence of our being, the form that could be carried forward indefinitely and perhaps be part of our re-birth.

    I'm sure there is no right and wrong answer - what you feel is what you are.

    mind and spirit are artifacts of biochemical processes of the body -- when we die, the mind and spirit cease - there is no scienific evidence of any persistence beyond that - it would require a supernatural effect that cannot be measured as any form of natural energy.  so any other claim is an irrational one based on religious/superstitious beliefs.  it's much more comforting to believe there's a difference, but entirely without sceintific basis

    They all complement each other. Without the mind, a human being is lacking the machinery to drive its internal processes.

    When it comes to mind and body both are different in the sense you have to take care of your body  and mind as  individual elements....Just because one is not happy starts punishing the body by refusing food why should you do that....If body collapses and mind is active whats the use its like two different people so u need to take care of it.

    All in one and yet separate, body is the first gift we realize we have got when we are born and we spend the first twenty years to use it and live in it and with it. Mind is another gift on which we rely mostly in our adulthood, in our most productive years. Spirit is the last gift we are keen to acknowledge in our last senior years when we are slowly loosing the two gifts mentioned above and suddenly we realise it is the best gift of them all and we try to keep it...alive as long as we can....

    When you are self possessed, the body dominates. When you are asleep , imagining or concentrating on something that is removed from the reality of your immediate being, you are in the mental state or your mind is doing all the work. When you are able to decide where you are in relation to both these states , then your spirit is at rest.
    Spirit need not be at rest, because it may be on a quest. The mind does not know about it. So, it is peaceful. When the answer is revealed, the mind at once realizes that some force (spirit) has moved his being to some new point in space and time.
    So, in that respect it is all one.
