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!

Hey Ron! It's true, we are all connected to each other and to everything...I think that on somethings you and I have vastly different beliefs. I don't believe in a god at all, but I KNOW that we are all one. Nothing in nature works on its own, without influence and contribution from something else..everyone and everything is connected on a very basic level..John Lennon spoke the truth with 'Give Peace a Chance'..and Michael Jackson spoke the truth with 'We Are The World', there are so many beautiful songs that express our connectedness to each other, and to the planet..What a great post Ron, a reminder that we should be decent to each other because it's the right thing to do...hope you have a great week!

Thanks Eve.I really dont think our beliefs are too far apart form each othersas I dont believe in a God who is a seperate entity from us humans sitting n a throne somewhere in a mythical place called Heaven. Heaven and hell are only states of mind, not real places as I see it.Lots of folks call me an atheist simply because I dont embrace their perception of God. Too me each of us has our own vision of what or who God is and most folks I think still try to describe God as a being with human feelings and moods like anger,love,vengeance,sadness etc. As for me personally the God I see everyday is ALL of life in its myriad forms and yes that does include us humans. Hope you have a great week Eve!

I think - since John lennon was mentioned - Imagine is a beautiful song as well. It kind of goes with the theme of this post! Great post, Bro!!!

Thanks Chris. Imagine is I think the most beautiful song ever written---Imagine theres no countries and no religion too Imagine all the people living life in peace....... if only we humans could get past our very limited egos and just let it be I truly do wonder of the beauty we could all share.
