The disease generally occurs when both of these combinations (mind body and soul ) are not working in harmony. But without the connection of soul and the mind, the body is totally useless.
The Mind: The mind is the center and the base of every spiritual body and soul. However, certain areas of the mind are governed by will, intellect reason and through emotions.
