Each of these 5 aspects occupies a position in your car. Let's talk about the 5 positions in the car and the power to choose that each one has.
- Driver. This is the ultimate decision maker. This person is in control of where you go or don't go. From this position all turns, stops, reversals, and chinese fire drills are controlled.
- Navigator. This position exerts the most influence over the Driver, and Driver is probably inclined to take Navigator's opinion over any other. This person can see everything the driver can see. This person can read the map, street signs, check for clear lanes, etc. They also have influence over those in the back.
- Left Rear (behind Driver). This position holds little influence, but does have a direct angle to Navigator, and the power to kick Driver's seat. This position can also give Driver key information about Driver's blind spot.
- Right Rear (behind Navigator). Again, a position of limited influence, but with angles to the Driver, and within reach of Navigator. This position can also give Driver key information about Navigator's blind spot. Both outer rear positions also have a good view of what you are passing, but limited amounts of information on what is upcoming.
- Center Rear. The most cramped and uncomfortable position. This one can see much of what Driver and Navigator see, and is within easy reach of both Driver and Navigator.
The 5 aspects each have a different perspective based on what they can feel.
- Physical feels hungry, tired, awake, pain, etc.
- Social feels peer pressure, rejection, envy, the need to impress, and nervous.
- Emotional feels sadness, worry, happy, joy, laughter, excitement, etc.
- Intellectual feels the influence of information (be it fact or fiction). Intellectual is the part of you that reasons and is really void of "feeling."
- Spiritual feels the influence of the Holy Ghost. All things that are learned through the Spirit are under Spiritual's jurisdiction.
I think that there are times when each aspect should be at the helm, or finds itself at the helm. This isn't neccisarily bad, but just the way it is sometimes. I do think that most of the time we can control where our aspects sit in the car and how they influence the choices we make.
Who is driving your car? Where is everyone else sitting? Do you want to change the seating arraingement?
