Father = mind / thought
the son of a thought is action
thinking before you act, thinking about which action to take
Son = action
The Holy Spirit = Emotion
What do you think?
I think that is a very interesting way of looking at the trinity, I have certainly never thought of it like that before.
We should all definately think before we act (which is easier said than done sometimes). Would the emotional aspect come after the action or before it? Would you only worry about how you (or others) feel about your actions after you have done them or were your intentions always coming from a place of love? That is the interesting part in my opinion.
The way I always had the trinity (sort of) figured out was that God is The Father of all creation, He existed before the beggining and exists outside of time and space (which he created), He is the ONE true God.
The "son", (are we not all the children of God?) Jesus is the messiah, who will be the king of this world after our enemy (Satan) has been destroyed (although Jesus is greater than anyone else who has ever lived, it doesn't make him an equal to God in my eyes, when he says the way to the father is through him it doesn't mean that we should worship him instead, it means we should try to follow his example and live our lives like he did).
The holy spirit I see as a kind of energy that flows through all things and makes stuff happen, it can be easy to confuse with God if you ever see it but it only comes from Him, it is not God himself, it did take me a few years to figure this out.
Thats my 2 penny's worth, I hope it helped.
