Transcript of Human Being as an Embodied Spirit

What is Human Being?
Embodied spirit is the living animating core within each of us, the driving force behind all that we think, say and do.
Sensations, feelings, insights, fancies -- all these are private and, except through symbols and at second hand, incommunicable. We can pool information about experiences, but never the experiences themselves. From family to nation, every human group is a society of island universes.

What is Embodied Spirit?
"Every embodied spirit is doomed to suffer and enjoy in solitude"
The human being is a complex matter and many believe that just trying to understand life and what it means to be human is a futile undertaking.
by Aldous Huxley
A human person is an embodied spirit (a "soul") whose nature has numerous bodily, affective, cognitive, volitional and gender capacities, the expression of which may lead by freedom to flourishing in a harmony with one's nature or dysfunction against one's nature, ultimately shaped by and finding their relational telos in the love of neighbor and union with God, relationships made possibly by our nature but realized only by the ministry of the indwelling Spirit of God.
for St. Thomas:

his own total vision of man would be
"embodied spirit".

A human being is by nature a finite embodied spirit, in search of the Infinite, in social solidarity with its fellow human beings, on an historical journey through this material cosmos towards its final trans-worldly goal, a loving union with God as the infinite fullness of all goodness.
for Aristotle:

A human person is a personal being possessing its intellectual nature as joined in a natural unity with a material body.

this unity called "man" as "a rational animal."
The Human Being as an Embodied Spirit is one which is expressed fully, shining for all the world to see. It is our right and responsibility to give our Spirit its fullest expression in this body. The opportunity to become embodied and whole begins at birth and continues throughout life.
A human being is a biosocial being and represents the highest level of development of all living organisms on earth, the subject of labour, of the social forms of life, communication and consciousness.

Speaking about man’s death
“The dust returns to the earth just as it happened to be and the spirit itself returns to the true God who gave it.”
- Ecclesiastes 12:7
the Angel of Death or Izraeel comes to take the spirit out of the body and puts it in a place called the "Barzakh".
