Soul as Consciousness:

Mind – thought (no sensation or feeling)

Body – sensation (no feeling or thought)

Spirit – feeling (no thought or sensation)

Fruits of Consciousness:

Fruits of the Body (Sensation): Reaction, Anticipation and Resolution

Fruits of the Mind (Thought): Imagination, Expression and Impression

Fruits of the Spirit (Feeling): Hope, Faith and Love

The fruits are combinations of two primary types of consciousness.

Note that outer fruits seem to ripen from the inner ones: reaction, becomes expression, becomes love.

Further definitions: In consciousness, the three independent variables are as follows: The mind is the left side of the cerebrum. It cannot sense or feel. It stores and analyzes based on comparison. It stores sensation of the body and feelings of the spirit. The body part of mind is primarily the brain stem – the areas of the brain used for sensation. It cannot feel or think. It senses the body and outside world through the nervous system, and is internal theater to thoughts of the mind and feelings of the spirit. The spirit part of the mind resides in the left side of the cerebelum. It cannot think or sense. It feels the spirit, the thoughts of the mind and sensation of the body.

Three dimensional checks and balances: Body relates to mind, as spirit relates to body, as mind relates to spirit. Fruits on one side should have opposite qualities of consciousness on the other.

Christianity teaches, we are in the image of God – Father (Mind), Son (Body) and Holy Spirit (Spirit). Our soul’s consciousness reflects that. The soul is the mind’s consciousness. It has a mind component, as well as body and spirit. In this way it confirms itself and has two witnesses. The body and spirit both have their own consciousnesses. In this way, body is aware of itself as it acts and spirit is aware of itself as it inspires.
