Have You Been “Born Again”?

To be born again is to be born in the spirit, which is our higher Self. It takes place when we cease living or being aware only in our physical body, our external life in this material world, and begin to experience our true, higher life as the immortal, divine Self in the greater life and being of God.

Being Unashamed Before God

In paradise Adam and Eve “were both naked…and were not ashamed” (Genesis 2:5) because of their consciousness of spirit rather than of the body. But through their misdeeds “the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked” (Genesis 3:7). So we see that shame and fear come from moral transgression and its attendant guilt.
