I like that Beat
And on the other hand, chemicals can influence the Spirit, and true recognition can sometimes be misunderstood and lost within chaos, considering that the brain and Spirit combine to form a union.
William Deep said: "Consciousness creates form"
...and this can generate another thought through personal experience:
Personally, I have left my constraints of this body as my Spirit Self. I have also had the grand experience of sharing my Spirit within another person's shell, where their Spirit also resided. We bonded for a short time, but we shared the same Physical body...but this still was an experience with not creating form, but of sharing an existing form.
I have also traveled to separate Dimensional Planes, in my Spirit Form. In some of my travels, I have been able to shape shift and call upon extraordinay strengths to my advantage, and I can say in these cases that My "Consciousness created form", as was suggested. However, one must consider the differences in possible hindrances that one can achieve to conceive within the boundaries of one's environment. The Physical Realm, that we know of as our reality, has such limitations in that our Consciousness does not necessarily 'create' form, but that our Consciousness can share form.
...and these thoughts are based on the subject matter at hand that considers the Spirit and the flesh on our recognized Physical Plane of Reality.
So what do you think about depression then? Illness of the brain (i.e. chemical imbalance) or illness of the soul??
Neither, both, depends entirely on the individual addressed. A certain fewer of those individuals are affected by brain chemistry than those whom are depressed because of social interaction (or lack thereof), and there is a preponderance of science to support that if you choose to read.
