THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU, THE BRAIN AND YOUR MIND

"Deeds of the flesh which is the body and its brain".
Galatians 5:19-21; Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20. idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, 21. envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

have our "minds set on what the flesh desires".
The body is governing our mind and for us "is death".
are "hostile to God".
"cannot please God."
If we live in accordance with the Spirit (God's Holy Spirit):
we have our "minds set on what the Spirit desires".
our mind is governed by "life and peace".
If we believe that we are only a brain/body/flesh and live "in accordance with it", then we have the following attributes:
Romans 8:5-7; Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.
Above, are the attributes of the body (flesh). I think it is important for us to remember that the flesh (we have inherited from birth) is full of sin genetically. (Galatians 5:19-21 above), so God's Holy Spirit if we have chosen to have one, (especially in the light of 1 Corinthians 2:14 - below), has no option but to work through our God-given human spirit within all of us.
The person without, and with the Holy Spirit
1 Corinthians 2:14; The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.

It's hard to get some of your more spiritual ideas across to a person without the Holy Spirit. I had a glorious marriage for 14 years because we were on the same page. Death separated us, but we will always love each other. Choose your close friends and relationships carefully so that you will have someone compatible with yourself. I know, we like to convert people and I think that is great! I have tried that myself. Converts are on shaky ground for a while and can revert, depending upon the person.
1 Corinthians 15:50; I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.
The flesh (body/brain) "cannot inherit the kingdom of God" (1 Corinthians 15:50).
"nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable." (1 Corinthians 15:50).
SUMMARY: THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU, THE BRAIN, AND YOUR MIND
It can be very confusing for your mind:
The Holy Spirit (if you have one - see 'THE HOLY SPIRIT' below) has intentions from God which go to you directly (human spirit).
Who you are, (human spirit) has intentions which you send to your mind - which for me include the intentions of the Holy Spirit.
The body, its brain, and its emotions can be seen and experienced,
The body/brain has intentions which go to your mind.
Your mind is unseen but can be experienced, and is a combination of energies and intentions from 1-4 above.
Satan and his demons can also be experienced who come "only to steal and kill and destroy". (See 'HOW DOES SATAN OPERATE' below).
The flesh (brain/body) cannot go to heaven. It "cannot inherit the kingdom of God" nor can it "inherit the imperishable." (1 Corinthians 15:50 above) The body/brain/flesh goes into the ground to decay (along with its emotions and intentions.
Who we are is a human spirit given to each of us in the womb. (See HOW DID THE HUMAN SPIRIT & BODIES COME ABOUT? above),
We can all have the Holy Spirit if we ask for it from Jesus. The Holy Spirit works with our human spirit. It does not work with the brain/body/flesh. (See 'THE HOLY SPIRIT' below).
If we were just body/brain/flesh, the "Spirit" (Holy Spirit) cannot work with us because the body/brain/flesh does not understand the things of the Holy Spirit "but considers them foolishness" (1 Corinthians 2:14 above).
HOW DO WE DISTINGUISH THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BODY AND SPIRITUAL EMOTIONS; Paul has told us in Corinthians:
Corinthians 5:22; But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
I watch carefully to stay on the path of Corinthians 5:22. It is a ship rudder for me. I had to renew my mind. See 'THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU, YOUR BRAIN and YOUR MIND' above
Renewing my mind is probably the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I know I will never get the body or its brain (flesh) to understand the spiritual side of me, because of 1 Corinthians 2:14, but I can immerse the body/brain (flesh) with music and the fruit of the Spirit and prayer and the positive. It does respond. It does obey.
See 'THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU, THE BRAIN, AND YOUR MIND' above. Then we have Satan and his demons who are continually around to come to lie cheat and steal. See 'HOW SATAN OPERATES' below.
Much more on this exciting subject is in the new book God, Us, and Satan.

THE ENERGIESof the MIND
There is a mess of dark energy where negative emotions exist. Above that is where you as a spirit and your Holy Spirit are.
You and the Holy Spirit have no wavelength like voices or radio waves have. You exist above them and anything which has any kind of signal.
When you get bogged down or interact with a negative person, you find yourself exchanging energies.
It is a rule of this universe. Everything has to equal out to everything. In other words, if you experiment and put 2 bottles side by side, one filled with water and the other one empty, they would stay like that for eternity as long as they were undisturbed. But if you put a tube from one to the other and siphon some of the water into the empty one, the water would continue flowing like magic until – wait for it – yes, until each bottle was half full. In other words, the water would equal out. Another example; a ship in the ocean that leaves a hole behind it as it travels which is called a wake. Does this wake stay there? No, it fills up with whatever is around – otherwise, there would be wakes (holes) all over the ocean or lake, but there are not. When one room is hot and another cold, when you open the door between the two, the hot air and cold air mix and even out to the same temperature. It all evens out. Because it is one of the rules of this universe, like gravity.
It is the same when we communicate with someone with our body using our vocal cords. Our intention goes into the body and the vocal cords express, with the sound they create, an energy wave which is heard and translated by the ears around. People can communicate back and forth, sometimes for hours until the communication is ended. But what has happened to these energies? Yes, they have evened out, which means, if you have one person with spiritual energy and one person with negative energy, the person with the more spiritual energy will acquire acquired heavy energy from the more negative one and vise versa.
Have you ever had a dull feeling or a headache after speaking to someone for a long time? Well, you have exchanged energies with them.
On the other hand, the negative person might be having a good day and feel very good after being exposed to your more spiritual energies, but unfairly you feel drained.
I was communicating to someone very negative and stuck in his ways for weeks and my brand new tire went flat and my iPhone dropped on the ground and cracked its screen and then to make matters worse after I took it to repair, they could not find where the backup of all my data on the iPhone was! Then I seriously bumped my head on a branch of a tree! I was beginning to tare out my hair when a good friend reminded me of what I am telling you above.
The minute I realized this and got under the light of the Holy Spirit, my car was fixed free of charge and my iPhone is now operational again and my head is healing. Whew!
Now I knew what his life is like.
The only power Satan and his demons have over us are if we fall into the ‘mire’ and then they can attach ourselves to us. I made a new policy to monitor my spiritual level very carefully. They have no power of their own. They have to use ours.
