To Be Reborn

In the book of Matthew, Jesus says, “Surely I tell you, no one can enter the Kingdom of Heaven unless that person is born again.”  What did he mean by that?   Certainly, he didn’t literally mean a physical rebirth, but to be reborn into a higher consciousness.  He was talking about moving to a new way of thinking and perceiving the world around us, a way of seeing ourselves and the world beyond fear, conflict and other negative thoughts.

As you read these words, make them your own:

I am a student of life, and each day is a divine journey.
I am not stuck in difficult challenges or defeated by trying problems.
I am able to overcome any obstacle with the limitless wisdom and peace that is innately within me.
Today, I am born anew and move beyond attitudes of the past that have held me back from my higher good.
