“BORN AGAIN” – AN INFINITE NUMBER OF TIMES

Childhood is the closest most of us will ever get to Christ –
On average, people, as they grow older, become harder, deader in important parts,
And increasingly brittle.

This demonstrates that we may also be moving in the wrong direction spiritually –
So, before we grow any older, we need to consider turning
And becoming more childlike in our souls.

We need to do this without giving up our lifetime of experience –
Retaining our hard-earned maturity.

The joy and light that, hopefully, will start growing brighter in us –
Eventually could even turn into the “twinkle” of a new-born baby –
A few older people have achieved this – think, for example, of the Dalai Lama
Or another mature person with this kind of sparkle that you might already know.

That would, of course, make one the most mature “baby” – ever –
Since, by that time, we’d have experienced being “born again” –
An infinite number of times.

PERPETUALLY SURPRISED

“Love” works like a magical pair of glasses.

Before you put them on – spiritually, you can’t see a thing
But when you place them astride your nose
And look directly through their clear lenses –
You’ll “see” what God sees.

When you put these glasses on,
You’ll immediately be changed into a new person –
Transfigured, like Jesus,
Into someone “born again” –
Able to see the world like a new-born baby
While still retaining all your lifetime experiences.

Really, if you want to “see” just like God does –
Put on these special “love” glasses –

And get prepared to be perpetually surprised!
