The soul, not the mind, is the man.
As the soul progresses, so does the intellect (mind) progress.
In the beginning, man was created as a soul. This soul was made in the image of God and is the man. No other part of man was made in the image of God, but the soul. Man is comprised of a soul, spirit and physical body. The spirit of man contains the mind or intellect, as well as forms the spirit-body (that part of man which would be his mind and body in the spirit world). The physical body is not the man, as the spirit (or spirit-body) also is not the man. Again, the soul is the man. The spirit and soul of man are together as one. Yet, they are two parts. The heart of man speaks of the condition of one’s soul, whether dark or light and refers to both soul and spirit (and their condition). In the beginning, both soul and spirit were united in their creation, coming from the eternal Father; the physical body being formed for the sole purpose of continuing the evolution of the soul and spirit, for the man to become “individualized” through first progressing in the physical realm. In the physical world, man learns of “self.” Some call this consciousness. This realm is used for only a short time to develop “self” and may be used to progress further in soul development.
Most religious teachings work only on building the intellect or mind (the spirit of man) and never teach the developing of one’s soul. Teachings which work solely to progress the spirit of man are not unlike the “Law of Moses.” They both teach to come into some form of harmony with the law of God which says, ” a man shall reap whatever he sows,” by trying to identify what is “bad” and what is “good.” Teaching the control of one’s mind and emotions to stay clear of “the bad,” may work to bring some peace and harmony, but will not bring one closer to God and divinity. Freeing the mind of the various prisons the intellect can create is profitable, for it is our thinking in error (sin) that creates the self-imposed prisons we call hell. The spirit of man, the mind (or intellect), can be allowed to darken the soul left undeveloped. When the spirit of man is allowed to reign over the soul, this is what Jesus referred to as “the devil.” Others call this the “ego.” And just as hell or a prison of the mind can be created by the intellect, it should be known that the hell or prison can be undone, as well. The control that the spirit (mind or intellect) has over the undeveloped soul is what must be “undone.” It is a change from being lead externally to being lead internally. “Salvation” is being set free or “saved” from this condition of “fallen mankind.” This is what it means to be “born-again.” For man was created in the image of God as a living soul, and the soul is what God communicates and identifies with. The word image means “not real” or “an illusion.” But God gave us the ability to change from the image to the real.. When one begins to develop the soul, the image of God begins the transformation into the substance of God. By seeking the divine love of the Father, one in effect puts on immortality and divinity, as the soul is forever transformed. The son becomes in substance and reality like his heavenly Father. There is a distinct difference between being a part of the whole of God who is eternal, and possessing, knowing and being immortal. For knowing and possessing immortality, which is the love of God, empowers one to prosper in all things – even as the soul has prospered. All things eventually come into alignment when the soul prospers. Build the soul, and the spirit (mind or intellect) comes into submission unto the soul. By seeking the love that can only come from the Father, the soul receives the Holy Spirit which cleans, takes over and eternally possesses parts of, and eventually the entire soul. The holy spirit of love, truth, joy and peace forever transforms the soul. And as the soul progresses, so does the intellect or spirit of man. Wisdom is gained. Health is gained. In fact, all aspects of one’s life should prosper as the soul prospers. Progression of the soul causes one to know the creative power within it. As the soul progresses, so do the worlds in which it it is able to exist within. The soul will travel up and out of hells to heavens; and when the soul progresses to being fully possessed of God’s love, that soul is as an angel in the highest heavens.
