Holy Ghost

"Now here is the trinity in the principles of reason. The word is the name of the Father, the cat or matter, the Son or theory and the application of the word to the animal was the Holy Ghost or explanation of the union of the Father and Son. The word God is the word for that substance called the father, Jesus or the matter, the son; the explanation of the union of wisdom and matter is the Holy Ghost or science." [Quimby, The Complete Writings, Volume I]

Abhasa Chaitanya or Purusha, the Sons of God. This Holy Ghost, being the manifestation of the Omniscient Nature of the Eteral Father, God, is no other substance than God Himself; and so these reflections of spiritual rays are called the Sons of God - Abhasas Chaitanya or Purusha. [Swami Sri Yukteswar, The Holy Science, Sutra 5]

Father, Son and Holy Ghost
"I will make the one living and true man: the father, the son and the Holy Ghost. The scientific or wisdom is the father; the idea man or matter the son, or flesh and blood; the explanation of the unity is the Holy Ghost or wisdom. These three make the one living and true man. The father or wisdom will reign through the son or matter by the word or Holy Ghost till all enemies are explained through the son. Then the son shall become subject to the father or science and wisdom shall reign all in all. In the days of old, this wisdom spake through the prophets. At last, it spake through science or a wiser medium, but it has never spoken to the sick in prison. But ancient and modern philosophy has looked for the true Messiah or Wisdom that shall open the prison doors, burst the bolts and bars, break the chains of superstition and set the captive free. When this comes, there shall be a time such as was never seen before, when the priests and doctors shall hide their faces from the people to keep from being ridiculed for their superstition and ignorance. They will be set down on a level with the old Salem witchcraft. Their power shall be taken away from them and they shall be turned out to eat the fruits of their own labor. Then to be religious is to show the world that you can correct some of the diseases that have been invented by these blind guides. As man knows himself, he learns that all he is, is his life, and his senses are in his life, that opinions are mind subject to his life. His life embraces all his faculties and his happiness is in knowing that he is no part of what is seen by the eye of opinion. The world is the shadow of wisdom's amusement. All that is seen by the natural man is mind reduced to a state called matter." [Quimby, October 1861]

“Everyone knows it is harder to unlearn an error than to learn a truth. So Jesus, knowing that a child was free from both, took him as a parable so that the Christian world must give away or get rid of all their errors and become as a little child to receive the Holy Ghost or Science. This was the new birth; therefore to enter into Science or the kingdom of heaven was not a very easy thing. So if anyone said he was born of God or Science let him show it, for many shall come saying, I am Christ and shall deceive many but by their fruits ye shall know them.” [Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, A Defense Against an Accusation of Putting Down Religion, page 196]

Jacob Boehme
"For the Holy Ghost will not be held in the sinful flesh, but rises up like a lightning-flash, as fire sparkles and flashes out of a stone when a man strikes it.
But when the flash is caught in the fountain of the heart, then the Holy Spirit rises up, in the seven unfolding fountain spirits, into the brain, like the dawning of the day, the morning redness.
In that Light the one sees the other, feels the other, smells the other, tastes the other, and hears the other, and is as if the whole Deity rose up therein.
Herein the spirit sees into the depth of the Deity; for in God near and far off is all one; and that same God is in his three-foldness as well in the body of a holy soul as in heaven." [The Confessions of Jacob Boehme]

Jacob Boehme
"Thus you may see how God created all things out of nothing, but only out of himself: and yet the Out-birth is not from his essence or substance, but it hath its original from the Darkness.
The source of the Darkness is the first Principle, and the virtue or power of the Light is the second Principle, and the Out-birth generated out of the Darkness by the virtue of the Light, is the third Principle; and that is not called God: God is only the Light, and the virtue of the Light, and that which goes forth out of the Light is the Holy Ghost.
You have a similitude of this in yourself: your soul which is in you, gives reason to you, whereby you think, consider and perceive : that represents God the Father : The Light which shines in your soul, whereby you know the virtue or power in you and lead and direct or order yourself with, that represents God the Son, or the Heart, the eternal power and virtue: and the mind in which the virtue of the Light is, and that which proceeds from the light where with you govern your body, that represents the Holy Ghost." [Jacob Boehme (1575-1624) - Three Principles of the Divine Essence]
