What is our spirit, and is it different from our mind and our body? And, if it is different, how and why?
You can be a genius and have a poor attitude, or spirit. You can be a relatively uneducated person and have a great attitude, or spirit.
You can be an Olympic athlete and have a poor attitude, or spirit. You can have a crippled body and have a great attitude, or spirit.
Webster’s dictionary defines spirit in this way:
“2. the thinking, motivating, feeling part of man, often as distinguished from the body; mind; intelligence” 6. frame of mind; disposition; mood; temper” 7. vivacity, courage, vigor, enthusiasm, etc” 8. “enthusiasm and loyalty” 10. “a pervading animating principle, essential or characteristic quality, or prevailing tendency or attitude” 11. “a divine animating influence or inspiration”
I believe the spirit is seperate from the mind (brain). You can believe whatever you want. It all depends on your attitude and tendancies.
