Equanimity = keeping an emotional balance even while under stress.
The Bible says that human is composed of three distinct parts: spirit, soul, and body. We teach that human beings are composed only of two parts
soul and body. According to this concept, the body is the part of man which can be seen, and the soul is the part which is unseen. The Holistic
approach of body, mind and soul is the work as a system of energy. We connect our body, mind and soul to keep energy flowing within us. This
energy flow can be abundant or restricted, depending on our 'state of being' in each moment and it changes constantly. In the Holistic philosophy
the mind is the experience of joy in everything we do, treat others with love and respect, treat ourselves and our bodies with love and respect
and have a sense of purpose. The mind registers and filters emotion and registers nerve impulses generated by the body.  When the mind is
functioning as intended, it is self-aware, focused and quiet as required. So the mind has two choices: to block out sensation or to listen to it.
The soul is ultimately responsible for giving the body its life force. The soul guides and directs our behaviour and actions in the physical form.
When the soul chooses to leave the physical body, the body perishes. The soul is driven by wisdom and love, the body, our outer shell, is a
product of both the mind and soul and how it is cared for on a daily basis.  As we can understand in here is the mind and the soul are spiritual
thinking philosophy but not took as a mind-soul-spirit entity, the terms “soul” or “spirit” mean something invisible and immortal that exists in
us, at death this invisible part of a human leaves the body and lives on.

    The body: The physical aspect of the human being. It consists about 50 trillion cells which organize to form tissue, nerves, bones, and organs.          
    The body expresses itself in the language of matter, atoms, particles, and molecules.

    The mind-brain is the mental/emotional aspect of the human being. The mind-brain processes thoughts and ideas as well as feelings and        
    emotions. The mind-brain is consciousness, memory, and imagination. The mind-brain communicates in the language of creative expression          
    such  as music, art, and poetry.

    The mind-soul is a non-physical aspect of the human being. It is our personal and individuated expression of the divine. The mind-soul is                 
    that part of us that longs to have meaning and seeks answers. The soul is eternal spirit, the vital force within all things. This spirit may be             
    called God, the indescribable organizing principle of the universe and its language is pure energy.


                               The thoughts and emotions are activity of the mind-soul-spirit.
    The body, the mind-brain and the mind-soul are the components that define our specie, the whole human being.
    The soul is: psyche, inspiration, energy, conscience, courage, feeling, genius, intellect, intelligence, mind, spirit, thought
    anima, animus, essence, quintessence, substance.
The mind-brain and the mind-soul are two parts of the same mind

    Every time a child is born, he inherit the mind of the body, the brain, or the body mind. The mind-soul and the body-mind work as one. The Body Mind is a
    dominant ruler. It takes all the power that we  call the Ego. The mind-soul is the spirit and it is the part that leave our  body at our death and reach the
    other spirits of the univers. At this point we do not know what happen to it really, does it stay there in the noosphere? Does it reincarnate? Or does
    other tasks? We have no solid proof information about it.

    The human spirit have three main functions: conscience, intuition, and communion.
  1. The conscience is the part of the spirit which distinguishes right from wrong a spontaneous direct judgment.
  2. The intuition is the “knowing” part of the spirit. All true knowledge originates from the mind-spirit. Revelations of God the Holy Spirit are known to the believer                 
    through his intuition.
  3. Communion is the third function of the spirit related to the worship of God and connecting with other mind-spirit-soul in the noosphere.

    The spirit world referring to ghost.

    In our Canon Catechism at question number 11. What is a Spirit?
    Answer: The human soul = our thought = the Spirit
                            The Holy Spirit = the Holy Thought or GOD a Pure Spirit
    The Cosmic Christ = the Thought of GOD Creator a Pure Spirit

    If a spirit is a thought, it is non-physical meaning it cannot be seeing, it cannot talk, even less have manifestation of any kind.

    Wikipedia.org: A ghost known as a spectre, phantom, apparition, spirit, spook, or haunt is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear, in
    visible form or other manifestation, to the living. Descriptions of the apparition of ghosts vary widely from an invisible presence to translucent or barely visible
    wispy shapes, to realistic, lifelike visions. The deliberate attempt to contact the spirit of a deceased person is known as necromancy, or in spiritism as a séance.
    The belief in manifestations of the spirits of the dead is widespread, dating back to animism or ancestor worship in pre-literate cultures. Certain religious  
    practices, exorcisms, and some practices of spiritualism and ritual magic, are specifically designed to rest the spirits of the    dead. Ghosts are generally
    described as solitary essences that haunt particular locations, objects, or people they were associated with in life, though stories of phantom armies, ghost trains,
    ghost ships, and even ghost animals have also been recounted.

    A notion of the transcendent, supernatural, or numinous, usually involving entities like ghosts, demons, or deities, is a cultural universal. In pre-literate folk
    religions, these beliefs are often summarized under animism and ancestor worship.  Some people believe the ghost or spirit never leaves Earth until there
    is no-one left to remember the one who died. In many cultures malignant, restless ghosts are distinguished from the more benign spirits involved in ancestor
    worship. Ancestor worship typically involves rites intended to prevent revenants, vengeful spirits of the dead, imagined as starving and envious of the living.
    Strategies for preventing revenants may either include sacrifice, i.e., giving the dead food and drink to pacify them, or magical banishment of the deceased to
    force them not to return. Ritual feeding of the dead is performed in traditions like the Chinese Ghost Festival or the Western All Souls' Day. Magical banishment
    of the dead is present in many of the world's burial customs. The bodies found in many tumuli (kurgan) had been ritually bound before burial, and the custom of
    binding the dead persists, for example, in rural Anatolia. Nineteenth-century anthropologist James Frazer stated in his classic work, The Golden Bough, that
    souls were seen as the creature within that animated the body.

    Another widespread belief concerning ghosts is that they are composed of a misty, airy, or subtle material. Anthropologists link this idea to early beliefs that
    ghosts were the person within the person (the person's spirit), most noticeable in ancient cultures as a person's breath, which upon exhaling in colder climates
    appears visibly as a white mist. This belief may have also fostered the metaphorical meaning of "breath" in certain languages, such as the Latin spiritus and the
    Greek pneuma, which by analogy became extended to mean the soul. In the Bible, God is depicted as synthesising Adam, as a living soul, from the dust of the
    Earth and the breath of God. In many traditional accounts, ghosts were often thought to be deceased people looking for vengeance, or imprisoned on earth
    for bad things they did during life. The appearance of a ghost has often been regarded as an omen or portent of death. Seeing one's own ghostly double or
    "fetch" is a related omen of death.

    The Hebrew Torah and the Bible contain a few references to ghosts, associating spiritism with forbidden occult activities. The most notable reference is in the
    First Book of Samuel, in which a disguised King Saul has the Witch of Endor summon the spirit or ghost of Samuel. In the New Testament, Jesus has to persuade
    the Disciples that He is not a ghost following the resurrection, Luke 24:37–39 (some versions of the Bible, such as the KJV and NKJV, use the term "spirit").
    Similarly, Jesus' followers at first believe Him to be a ghost (spirit) when they see Him walking on water.

    Most of the Christian Church considers ghosts as beings who while tied to earth, no longer live on the material plane. Some Christian denominations teach that
    ghosts are beings who linger in an interim state before continuing their journey to heaven. On occasion, God would allow the souls in this state to return to earth
    to warn the living of the need for repentance. Jews and Christians are taught that it is sinful to attempt to conjure or control spirits in accordance with
    Deuteronomy XVIII: 9–12.

    Some ghosts are actually said to be demons in disguise, who the Church teaches, in accordance with I Timothy 4:1, that they "come to deceive people and draw
    them away from God and into bondage." As a result, attempts to contact the dead may lead to unwanted contact with a demon or an unclean spirit, as was said to
    occur in the case of Robbie Mannheim, a fourteen-year- old Maryland youth. The Seventh-Day Adventist view is that a "soul" is not equivalent to "spirit" or
    "ghost" (depending on the Bible version), and that save for the Holy Spirit, all spirits or ghosts are demons in disguise. Furthermore, they teach that  in
    accordance with (Genesis 2:7, Ecclesiastes 12:7), there are only two components to a "soul", neither of which survives death, with each returning to its
    respective source.

    Christadelphians reject the view of a living, conscious soul after death. The Talmud tells of a being called a shade that is similar to other creatures in that it lives
    and dies but consists only of a form but lacks matter that forms mass, thus rendering it invisible. Since it has no physical mass it is capable of transporting itself
    from one end of the world to the other.

    Science:
    The physician John Ferriar wrote An essay towards a theory of apparitions in 1813 in which he argued that sightings of ghosts were the result of optical illusions.
    Later the French physician Alexandre Jacques François Brière de Boismont published On Hallucinations: Or, the Rational History of Apparitions, Dreams, Ecstasy,
    Magnetism, and Somnambulism in 1845 in which he claimed sightings of ghosts were the result of hallucinations.

    Joe Nickell of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry wrote that there was no credible scientific evidence that any location was inhabited by spirits of the dead.
    Limitations of human perception and ordinary physical explanations can account for ghost sightings; for example, air pressure changes in a home causing
    doors to slam, or lights from a passing car reflected through a window at night. Pareidolia, an innate tendency to recognize patterns in random perceptions,
    is what some skeptics believe causes people to believe that they have 'seen ghosts'. Reports of ghosts "seen out of the corner of the eye" may be accounted
    for by the sensitivity of human peripheral vision. According to Nickell, peripheral vision can easily mislead, especially late at night when the brain is tired and
    more likely to misinterpret sights and sounds.

    According to research in anomalistic psychology visions of ghosts may arise from hypnagogic hallucinations "waking dreams" which are experienced in the
    transitional states to and from sleep). In a study of two experiments into  alleged hauntings (Wiseman et al. 2003) came to the conclusion "that people consistently
    report unusual experiences in ‘haunted' areas because of environmental factors, which may differ across locations." Some of these factors included "the
    variance of local magnetic fields, size of location and lighting level stimuli of which witnesses may not be consciously aware".

    Some researchers, such as Michael Persinger of Laurentian University, Canada, have speculated that changes in geomagnetic fields (created, e.g., by tectonic
    stresses in the Earth's crust or solar activity) could stimulate the brain's temporal lobes and produce many of the experiences associated with hauntings. Sound
    is thought to be another cause of supposed sightings. Richard Lord and Richard Wiseman have concluded that infrasound can cause humans to experience  
    bizarre feelings in a room, such as anxiety, extreme sorrow, a feeling of being watched, or even the chills. Carbon monoxide poisoning, which can cause
    changes in perception of the visual and auditory systems, was speculated upon as a possible explanation for haunted houses as early as 1921.

    Base on the science and our theology we can affirm that Ghosts do not exist. Re. Eric Michel as a Ghost Hunter is for the investigation of the paranormal issue
    from the  person(s) living those activities who are studies at Institute of Noetic Sciences We like to know if all phenomena are provoked by the those person(s)
    claiming the entity.

    In our Canon Catechism we have these questions:

    17. Does angels exist?
    Answer: It have inexplicable accidents or incidents that the only reasonable answers is yes
    because we have no other explanations. They are pure spirit and we cannot see them,
    an angel is not a ghost who is a spirit that was link to a human.

    18. What is a devil?
    Answer: Devils and hell never existed and will never be.

    ANGELS
    Angels are spirits or thoughts, they do NOT have bodies, so they cannot be seeing, they cannot talk, etc. It does NOT have good angels or bad angels who turn
    into devils. It have angels who are purely spiritual being and are benevolent beings who act between Christ, the noosphere and Earth, has guardian spirits or a
    guiding influence. Their roles include protecting and guiding human beings, and carrying out God's tasks. The term "angel"  also present to various notions of
    spirits or figures found in many religious traditions. The theological study of angels is known as "angelology".

    The information that we teach concerning angels and the spiritual world in which they dwell from many years of spiritual experiences. All angels are just minds
    without form. There are NO different orders of angels , no ranks or societies of angels.  All angels originate from the Cosmic Christ and the noosphere, their
    functions are so many that they cannot be enumerated, angels attempt to lead each person to what is good tacitly using the person's own thoughts.

    We don't believe that we have Guardian Angels, our point of view is that all angels are guardians. The big question as a thought is how they can interact physically
    with us, our body.  Rev. Eric himself  says:" I'm should be dead something protected me in a motorcycle accident".

    That is the Canon Catechism question number 16. What is a spiritual mystery?
    Answer: A spiritual mystery is something that we don't understand but it can be reveled in an other life. It overpass all created human intelligence.
