The Human Holy Trinity


My father recognized mind-body-spirit as one word.
~Lucy Rockefeller Waletzky

Each of us is a Holy Trinity, three integrated components. Three symbiotic elements, a combination of physical and nonphysical space rendered into indivisible existence. We are a tripod of equally important legs. A mind leg. A body leg. A spirit leg. Stability requires each have the strength to complement the other two. To rely on any one leg at the expense of the others is to balance precariously, is to invite catastrophic crash and burn with no guarantee of a resurrecting Phoenix flying into a future.

In my 20s, I ignored the spiritual and scrapped barrel bottom, am still bouncing back and learning to build empathy and still, I’m far beyond a toddler in capability. Decades of unhealthy eating triggered my genetic predispositions at 51 pushing me into the hands of a surgeon for life-saving heart surgery and a future buoyed by medications to help ensure blood flows free in my arteries.

The only leg I’ve never neglected is my mind, the organ I leverage to be gainfully employed. Why? Possibly ego, the desire to appear intelligent. Possibly to offset my average physique and a spiritual life always seeking yet never finding therefore neglected for fear of appearing less intellectually gifted. There is always the specter that organic mental decay is on my horizon leaving me in a vegetative state dribbling food dome my white beard or laying in a bed and shitting myself.

Each leg born strong still vulnerable, susceptible to complete failure. ALl must be exercised to help compensate for the inevitable decay in the others. All for one. One for all. The indivisible Holy Trinity of human existence.
