About 3-Fold Being

Thus we can distinguish in man “three members:

  • the head;
  • then the breast-organization embracing all that is rhythmical, the breathing system and blood circulation;
  • thirdly, the metabolic-limb system, which includes nutrition, digestion and the distribution throughout the body of the products of digestion, all of which engender movement. All this has to do with the metabolic-limb system.”
Rudolf Steiner, Penmaenmawr, 23.08.1923; The Evolution of Consciousness, Rudolf Steiner Press

“The human being is essentially a spiritual being manifesting and expressing itself through the body and the soul. These three elements, the body, soul and spirit, together give us our threefold nature. The spirit is our individuality, our divine nature, that which is eternal and permanent. The soul is the unseen part of ourselves, the seat of our feelings, it is also called the aura or the mind. The body is the three dimensional part of ourselves which is not permanent and subject to physical laws.”
