The Holy Trinity. The Sacred Trinity. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. One God and three persons. Surely, you have heard about this concept and have dwelled on its meaning.
Are you a true believer? Are you a doubter? Have you dismissed this idea altogether? Have you considered alternate meanings of this concept?
Barring atheism, it is safe to assume that most ideologies believe in one all- powerful life force – a Creator. The universe and all of its inhabitants owe their very existence to God, the all powerful entity, by whatever form or name you assign to it.
How and why did this idea of a Holy Trinity come about? Can we ascribe an alternate meaning to it than that which we have been conditioned to believe?
Traditional Viewpoint: God the Father = God, the all-powerful; God the Son = Jesus Christ; and the Holy Spirit = the Holy Spirit. One God – three persons.
Consider the following alternate viewpoint: God the Father = God, the all-powerful; God the Son = the God that resides within each of us, our soul; and the Holy Spirit = the space between us and God, the spiritual tie between our souls and God.
God, the all-powerful and omnipresent being, the Creator – similar under both viewpoints. That Life Force that is responsible for all that was, that is, and that will be.
Jesus Christ, God’s likeness in the form of man, the Son of God. Human beings, or God’s creatures – are we not sons and daughters of God. We are His creation, we serve him, all of our lives are due to his having bestowed upon us His gift of life. The God that is within us = our soul.
The Holy Spirit, that light and connection and bond, that guiding force between God and Jesus. Or alternatively, between God and our soul, between God and us. Our guardian angel, our spiritual guide, our intuition, etc. All of the God sent assistance that we need, that our soul needs, to evolve spiritually.
God – outside of us. God – within us (our soul). God’s presence between God and our soul. Father Son Holy Spirit
Absorb that possibility. Feel the sense of purpose that comes with true understanding of the direct tie from God to us. God, the all-powerful; through his Spirit; to our soul. The God outside/without us; the God inside/within us; God between God and our soul – His guiding light and guiding force that dwells between our God and our soul.
To me, it makes sense and it resonates within me – driving me to better understand what my purpose is in this life that God has bestowed upon me.
God is for all to share. God is within us all. God provides us with a spiritual guide to assist us in our spiritual evolution. Consider the alternate meaning of the Holy Trinity.
