Personality :: The Three Levels of Being

The mental plane is the most crucial level for the human being. It is the mental and spiritual content of a person, which is the true essence of that person.

The Three Levels of Being

The highest and most important level through which the human being functions is the mental & spiritual level. As a general definition for this plane, we can say: The mental plane of an individual is that which registers changes in understanding or consciousness. It is on the mental level that an individual thinks, criticises, compares, calculates, classifies, creates, synthesizes, conjectures, visualizes, plans, describes, communicates, etc. Disturbances of these functions in turn constitute symptoms of mental illness.

The mental plane is the most crucial level for the human being. It is the mental and spiritual content of a person, which is the true essence of that person.

A person can continue to live, be happy, and be of creative service to others and to himself, with a crippled body, the loss of limbs, or even the loss of sight or hearing.

On the other hand, if there is a disturbance on the mental / spiritual plane, the person’s very existence is threatened. Such is seen in conditions such as senility, schizophrenia, and imbecility. If it were possible to have an absolutely healthy mind, we would see people who live continually in spiritual bliss, daily revealing new creative ideas expressed in a very clear way, always of service to others. Such people would live constantly in the clearness of life and never in the confusion of spiritual darkness.
