    is the dove descending upon jesus after his baptism a recognition of enlightenment in Jesus?

    is the tongues of fire descending upon the people at Pentecost another symbol of enlightenment with those participants on that day?

    if so, why then do so many christians not understand that the problem and solution are something to do with the mind = spirit?

    πνεῦμα pneûma, pnyoo'-mah; from G4154; a current of air, i.e. breath (blast) or a breeze; by analogy or figuratively, a spirit, i.e. (human) the rational soul, (by implication) vital principle, mental disposition, etc., or (superhuman) an angel, demon, or (divine) God, Christ's spirit, the Holy Spirit:—ghost, life, spirit(-ual, -ually), mind. Compare G5590.
