Understanding the Trinity by Analogy

Liquid/Solid/Gas certainly is readily understandable as three unique states of the same substance – but no single molecule exists simultaneously in all three states. Another that stands out to me is being a father, son, and husband (a spiritual union) all at the same time – yet human constraints still remain. The analogy drawn from Scripture that is more universally applicable to all of humanity and for me the truest theologically is that we are made in the image of God (Gen 1:26-27, ESV) – patterned after the likeness of the Divine and made to love Him with all (heart, soul, and mind … three-in-one) of that image (Deut 6:4-5; Mark 12:30).
