Patient discussion about spirit

Q. how do you lift your spirit during those tough days of economic depression?

A. just find an activity that will take your mind off things.(i.e.)fishing,games,puzzles,camping,etc.

Q. Where should i go when i feel down and lonely? is there like an independence way to lift my spirit?

A. I spend a lot of time in "my room". It has a window to look out and a comfortable chair to sit and think in. I can shut the door to get real quiet. I can read and study things. Reading gets my mind off of down feelings. There is also a time for going out walking. It frees my mind. When I come back I seem to have a new perspective on things. Sometimes I go and sit out in the woods for awhile where I live. I like listening to the birds and nature sounds. Its nice to see clouds going by in the sky or the stars at night. If something's really bothering you, call on someone you can trust and talk it out. Just find that activity that suits you best and get busy at it.

With that caveat, however, it can be mentioned that the linchpin to the entire argument rests in D.'s judgment that the wholeness of a whole system of Christian theology is to be derived from a brief passage towards the end of Lonergan's De Deo Trino in which the author suggests that there is no inconvenientia in asserting a one-to-one correspondence between the four "real relations" (which, on his psychological analogy, belong to the constitution of the triune God) and the four "supernatural entities" (which, for unstated reasons, he posits within the created order).
Their ideas invoke supernatural entities and events, the existence of which cannot be subject to laboratory testing and hence lie outside the realm of science.
It was natural, if perhaps slightly egotistical, for the earliest human beings to believe that the universe consisted of their own immediate surroundings, and that the various happenings in nature occurred at the whims of various supernatural entities; elaborate belief systems were constructed for the purpose of trying to convince these entities to produce one series of actions in lieu of others.
