Psalm 51 In the Right Spirit

God, in steadfast love, is waiting for us to step forward and claim our spiritual inheritance. But we must take up our cross (cross out our personal self and will), in order to understand and fully benefit from the law of Spirit. We must understand that if we approach God and even only a small portion of our personal will remains; we cannot fulfill our spiritual destiny. For when personality gets in the way, somehow, we always start to question God.
When we are born, we are born into the consciousness of the human race. These are the common held beliefs that we do not realize shape our every thought and deed. These ideas of human mind are ideas we use to explain the phenomena we see in our world. However, they are not spiritually discernedThese deeply ingrained error thoughts and beliefs are the most difficult for us to overcome because they are literally embedded in our DNA.

We also are born into a personality. The personality helps us grow into adults on this planet. Without the personality, we would not be able to bring our unique gifts to the world. However the personality is highly susceptible to worldly influence, which causes us to view ourselves as separate from God and each other. Once it has served its purpose, we must let it go in order to reach our full spiritual potential. We spend the bulk of our lives releasing these race beliefs and ideas of separateness. This is what it means to be born in sin.

We must hold to Truth within our consciousness. We must learn of it in the depths of our being (our secret heart). Spirit can purge our mind of all of false beliefs, so that we may be healed. Through the quickening of Spirit, a new consciousness (put a new and right spirit within me) is created in us. When we are born anew, we view our lives through a new set of eyes.

Jesus answered, Very truly, I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit. What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be astonished that I said to you, You must be born from above?

Only then we can change our error ways into God’s ways (Then I will teach transgressors your ways). When we are truly born again, Spirit guides every moment of our lives. We find change effortless for we have only one responsibility, being receptive to Spirit.

And so it is!
