A NEW BIRTH
In the Bible it talks about being born again. As a child I never could understand what this meant. With all the dogmas of religion and all the different interpetations of the Good Book I was confused as to how anyone could be reborn.Now as a grown amn who tries to think for myself and get away from all the things I accepted without question as a child I can see more clearly.The rebirth is one of a metaphysical nature that occurs within ones mind.My favorite verse in the Bible is Romans 12:2 which states:Be ye not conformed to this world but be ye renewed by the transforming of your mind. And that is what I try to do in my everyday life. I no longer just accept things others tell me as truth because I now now ones truth is just another's folly.I do believe with all my heart though that when one does experience the "rebirth" of mind they will then realize we are alll ONE. ONE! No matter what another believes what they wear what they look like where they go to worship or any thing else changes the face we are all ONE. And if we could all only grasp this truth we could then bring about the changes necessary to make this earthly home Heaven right now right here! No need to wait for a Rapture, no need to wait until we die, no need to wait for any reason. Imagine Heaven right here right now! You may not agree with my beliefs and that's ok too.All I ask is that you dont condemn me for what I do believe.And no matte what it is you do belieev there is no good reason as to why you cant be nice to everyone, treat each one with respect and dignity, and help others along the way.As the late great John Lennon once said in song "Just give peace a chance" I leave you now with a quote from Meister Eckhart who states:"To grasp God in all things---this is the sign of your new birth." My sincerest wish for each of yu is that the new week ahead will be a truly great one for you and yours!
