Spiritual Rebirth

March 22, 2009

“Very truly, I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit.” ~ John 3:5 (NRSV)

While we possess all four Elements in equal measure, we are most certainly born through and into Earth primarily. This leaves us in an unbalanced state, not evil but tending toward sinfulness (that is, tending to drift further into a purely material mentality).* It is only in being baptized in Water, Air and Fire and reborn through them that we can begin to perfect ourselves. This is an alchemical process, not simply a matter of immersion in the physical analogy of the Element in question.

*Sin will be the subject of tomorrow’s Your Daily Hermes, and I’ll soon cover it in much greater depth over at The Magical Messiah.
