Born Again

We are born again

Literally

 

We are the ancient ones

Who have been sleeping

 

Awakening now

With the wisdom

And experience

Of a sage

 

Though seeing the world

As if for the first time

Through the eyes

Of a child

Adversary

Art: Virgin Mary, artist unknown

Every story has a hero or heroine

And an adversary

And the story is written

Within a time and a place

 

And the story line is such that

Said hero or heroine

Must overcome the adversary

To save the world

 

Or maybe the story is such that

The hero must overcome

The adversary

To save the heroine

 

The Bible is such a story

The hero is Jesus Christ

And he came to save the world

To set us free from sin

The adversary

 

David slew Goliath with a stone

Daniel survived the lion’s den

And Christ overcame the world

 

We are either the hero

Or the adversary

 

If Christ is with us

Who can be against us

 

I John 4:5

“…because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

 

The Mind

When your mind

Tells you something

Ask your Self

Is it true

 

The mind is the

Great deceiver

 

It is capable

Of deceiving us to see

Things that are

Not really there

 

The world

The illusion

We have created

Our shared reality

 

But what about

Our true reality

Our true Self

 

Not who we appear to be

Not who the mind

Would have us think we are

 

But our Spirit

Our soul

Who we truly are

 

That which remains hidden

By the mind

The mind is like a veil

Behind which is the Spirit

 

The mind is the adversary

Of the Spirit

They war for our soul

 

Will we give our soul

To the adversary

To use as it pleases

 

Or will we give our soul

To the Spirit

To fulfill the will of God
