I have seen a lot of comments in recent years about unity with the underlying idea being that individual unity with others is the measuring stick of our Christianity. Without getting into the details of it yet, I reject this concept. Discuss.
This is my first post. I created an account here just so I could ask this question: Is the mind spirit? I've been reading a lot of success books lately (7habits, etc) which have lead me to think about both the conscious and subconscious mind in particular. The information I'm learning regarding the mind has been very helpful in my life but I still don't know exactly WHAT the mind is. I feel I have a pretty good understanding of the body and spirit, but I am not sure whether or not the mind is physical or spiritual, or if it's possibly something separate?
Hey, can anyone recommend me any books with LDS authors that talk about psychology with a gospel perspective? I am specifically looking for books on full self-control using gospel principles, basic or advanced. Or heck, even a book that doesn't necessarily teach you but at least talks about such. I can't really find anything though... Also something that mixes meditation with LDS principles would also be incredibly welcome and helpful. I know "Matters of the Mind: Latter-day Saint Helps for Mental Illness", but that seems to be the only book on LDS psychology that I can find so far. I really really wish to learn to control my body and mind on an incredibly high level, but I really want to avoid getting into waters I maybe should have left alone. Or disturbing and using powers that maybe ought not to be used at all.
