When I was born, the first feeling I had was anger. The commonly known reason for this is that we were angry that we had to leave our motherís womb, a comfortable, safe little place of fluid in which we floated around in ecstasy; we never had to worry about going hungry, either.

But I donít think for one moment that it stops there. When we experience a new birth in the Spirit of Love, Joy, and Peace Everlasting, we become angry at this flesh on our bodies that covers us with temptation, lust, and a sense of worldly being as we experience lost innocence through worldly pleasures. We become angry at this flesh because it comes into constant conflict with who we really are in the Spirit. We become angry at this flesh because it always tries to make us feel cut off from the Words of the Spirit which feed us so that we would never hunger for food which doesnít endure. We become angry at this flesh because itís the only thing thatís keeping our souls from experiencing everlasting love and comfort in the Spirit.

That is why, when we were little, we cried when we were hungry and when our mothers and fathers weren't around. Because as weíre newly born in this Holy Spirit, we know now what and whom we truly hunger for: our place in the Life Everlasting with our brothers and sisters in the Spirit of Love, Joy, and Peace Everlasting.

"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good, and acceptable, and perfect." Romans 12:2
