In biblical times there just does not appear to have been the words to express or the shoulders to stand on. The trinity, the father, son, and holly ghost, are there the same as Tolle body, mind, and consciousness? Where does the pointer point? It suggest it is all the same.
Now we have the trinity in OA, physical, emotional, spritual. If it is as Tolle says, the ego is a construct of the mind, a reflection of the collective learning of ourself, then once again we have the trinity with ego causing the problem. As the ego is a construct of the mind, we can learn, unlearn, ignore, refocus, redirect, the ego in many ways. So the emotions are then mind. Personality is then mind, not part of the self, the spirit. OK
