The Trinity in Man
Sources: GGJ.06:230, 07; GGJ 08:24,6 on; GGJ.08:025,01;
Following the explanation of the trinity in God the Lord continues [GGJ.06:230, 07 on]:
"That you, too, have the same trinity within you as I Myself, I will now clearly show you. Behold, everyone has a certain love within him and, as a result of such a love, also a will;
for love is in itself a desire and a longing, and that is wherein the
will lies. This applies also to all the plants and animals and, to a
point, also to the other matter.
Even the most vulgar and
unrefined man possesses love and will; but what does he achieve with
it? He is only concerned with satisfying his lowest and most material
needs which, going forth from his crude love, instinctively transmit to
his will from which his intellect receives nothing but the haziest
notion. Look at such people‘s actions! Aren‘t they far worse than those
of animals whose love and desires are guided by a higher influence?
is quite different, however, with the love and its will of those people
whose intellect has become enlightened; for with its light it then
permeates man‘s love and its will and thereby the whole person. Only
then does love provide the pure means, the light or wisdom sets them in
order and the will puts them into practice. Since man, as God‘s image,
possesses such an ability, too, does he then consist of three people,
or is he just one person?"
Say all, and in particular the first
disciples: "Thank You, O Lord, for having explained this so very
clearly, for You do not always speak and teach like this. Only now do
we fully understand how it is with the oneness of God, and so You are
indeed fully God as we have already suspected on various occasions. "
And on a different occasion the Lord Jesus develops:
GGJ 08:24,6 on:
Lord: "Behold, man is created fully in the image of God and he who
wants to know himself perfectly, must know and recognize in his inner
being that as one and the same man he actually consists also of three
personalities. You have a body endowed with all necessary senses and
other limbs and parts, from the greatest to the minutest imaginable,
needed for a free and independent life. For the purpose of developing
the spiritual soul within it, this body has its very own natural life,
which in everything strictly differs from the spiritual life of the
soul. The body lives on material nourishment, from which the blood and
other nutrient juices for its various parts are produced.
This life-activity has no connection whatsoever with the soul‘s free
will, yet the body, as a completely self-contained person as such, is
the same human being and does act as if both were one and the same
person. Can any one of you say that body and soul are totally one?
Let us now look at the soul as such, and we shall find that it, too, is
in itself a complete man, containing in a substantially spiritual form
within and for itself exactly the same comportents as the body and
using them in a higher spiritual correspondence in the same way as the
body uses its material ones.
 Although the body, on the one
hand, and the soul, on the other hand, represent two quite different
beings or persons, each of them with its very specific activity the
‘how‘ and ‘why‘ of which is not even clear to them, they represent
basically, where the actual purpose of life is concerned, only one
person, and no one can claim to be two persons instead of one. The body
must serve the soul and this with its intellect and will the body. For
this reason the soul is quite as responsible for the acts for which it
uses the body as it is for its very own, consisting in all kinds of
thoughts, wishes and desires.
 Looking more closely still at
the life and being of the soul as such, we soon find that the soul, as
a so far only substantial human being, would by itself not be on a
higher level than possibly the soul of an ape. It would possess an
instinctive reason on a somewhat higher level than a common animal, but
an intellect and a higher free judgment about things and their
circumstances would be completely out of the question.
higher - actually highest and fully godlike - ability of the soul is
brought about by a purely essential, spiritual third man, dwelling in
the soul and enabling it to distinguish the true from the false and the
good from the bad. The soul can freely think in all imaginable
directions and its volition is absolutely free. Whereupon it can by its
own effort become gradually completely like its indwelling spirit if it
directs its free will, supported by the spirit, to pure truth and
goodness and, thus, becomes strong, mighty, wise and reborn in the
 Once this is the case, the soul is as good as one
with its spirit, just as the nobler parts of the body of a perfect soul
which parts actually consist in the most varied nature spirits of the
body - pass completely into the spiritual substantial body you may call
the flesh of the soul and, finally, also into the essential body of the
spirit. This is the true resurrection of the flesh on the soul‘s last
and veritable day of life, which comes when a man is fully reborn in
the spirit, either already in this life or with a somewhat more
laborious and wearisome effort in the beyond.
 Although a
person fully reborn in the spirit is only one complete man, his nature
represents forever a well-distinguishable trinity."
