The Holy Trinity : The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
This isn’t a theological discussion or article of the Trinity. Just a random thought that entered my mind some time ago. Read on if curious 😉
So…during my readings of various books I suddenly had this thought bubble pop into my mind one day some months ago. And it was this:
If we believe that God is within us. That we are His children. And the Holy Spirit is the blessed life force that courses our human selves, like the Chi in eastern philosophy, wouldn’t that make us all walking Holy Trinity’s?
Isn’t that such an amazing thought?
I thought so too..but I didn’t mention it to anyone in case they thought I was a little loco, UNTIL I came upon this quote from the book “The Silence of the Heart” by Paul Ferrini.
That’s what I call a “very chewy” thought provoking piece of information.
While looking for images of the Holy Trinity, I came across this image:
I always said I was a “bad” Catholic 😛 See, I didn’t realize the “is not”s in the Trinity. When I looked at the image though, I did pause a few minutes because obviously I didn’t factor the “is not”s in my thought process…until I realized that for me it is true.
The Father, the Son and the Spirit are neither the same nor separate. They are one. They represent the Divine within us and from where we come from. We are not the parts of us but the sum of all the different aspects of us. And ultimately we all come from the one Source that we give different names to.
I’ve tried seeing people as beautiful light beings…pure energy of love that we all are. However, I have to honestly say I’m still trying. Being confined in this human self with a constantly chattering ego isn’t helping! 😛
I guess in the end…it is up to us to make the choice : Do we strive to be walking Holy Trinity’s (not to be mistaken for being a holier than thou self righteous person!) or do we succumb to just surviving this life time.
