Mind/body/spirit complex
Has anyone an idea if there is there a reason, or why they (Ra) speak of mind/body/spirit complex and I mean specific the order of the words : mind, body and spirit?

Was the mind first, before there was a body? Or did we first have a body and was the mind created from there on as an evolutionary path?
Or was the spirit first? Spirit creating a mind and then a body?

My understanding is that in the beginning mind, body, and spirit were indistinguishable from one another. They were just one "thing" (or non-thing since there are no separate objects at this level).

However this state most closely resembled spirit, or pure Beingness.

This Beingness then became self referential (self aware) forming the first subtle proto egoic structure (this is the Logos manifestation). That was the first manifestation of what we call "mind". The act of forming an inner dimension, such as mind, also reflexively and instantaneously creates an outer dimension called "body". In the case of the Logos, this body was "Light". Love was its mind, and Light was its body, and pure awareness, or Being, is its spirit.

And we are all extensions of those archetypal manifestations.

The magic is recognized; the nature is often not.

I also wanted to add I think Ra spoke of them in that order because that is the order that the tarot describes these archetypal aspects: 1-7 the mind cycle, 8-14 the body cycle, and 15-21, equals the spirit cycle.

The path of the adept generally follows the mastery of the mind, then the body, and then lastly, the most subtle, the spirit.

That may not be the reason, but it is my best guess/intuition about it.

RE: Mind/body/spirit complex
Thanksfor explaining...it makes sense..

But Ra was also the one explaining the tarot, so it would be logic that that order would be the same.....

I was surprices, because I would have started with the body...because to me it was the lowerst in vibration, then mind and then spirit....but that was maybe my mistake, I had the order wrong......as the body was not the first case...so to start with the mind as it causes the body would be a more logical start.....I will think of this and read some more...

I only yesterday discovered that The Ra material described the tarot. I did not knew that before yesterday. I ordered 3 of the 5 book of the Ra material and looked them through and found the tarot by surprice...so I have still to learn what Ra says about tarot.....and the archetypical mind.....it can teach me a thing or 2..or more.....Smile Wink Rolleyes

RE: Mind/body/spirit complex
They refer the body as a creature of the mind, might explain why it does not start with the body.

In the idea of infinity, acceptance of all the potentials the mind can think of is required for a balanced union with what is seen of infinity
