But sometimes they're all different. So you appear "inconsistent" to people.
They have to be in harmony if you're going to be a healthy and fit person. In fact, the three have to be in unity if you're going to have a sound personality and a good life.
Everything goes wrong the moment the three disagree and act separately. The spirit believes one thing but the soul reinforces another thing. And then the body does something on its own as well.
For instance, your spirit believes the principle that you should avoid softdrinks and sodas because they create belly fat in you. But your soul says something else. Your mind thinks of a tall glass of iced softdrinks, your emotion craves for it and your will is ready to do it.
But then you see a bottle of beer and you change mind and drink it instead (the body triumphs over the mind).
Thus, many times you find yourself raising your hands when someone asks, "Who among you here knows that softdrinks is bad for health?" That's your spirit responding.
But right after, you go to the snack bar and look for soda. That's your soul. And then you order one and actually drink it. That's your body obeying your soul (or your soul succumbing to your body).
Or, your soul tells you it's bad but your body ignores it.
Once this happens daily, it's easy to see why you end up physically unfit and unhealthy. Your "you" is never united. Your "you" is never one.
Spirit, soul and body unity should be a daily thing for life. You should begin to train in this.
