From Birth to New Birth

Updated on May 14, 2019

Reborn, Elijah divorced civilization to learn Freedom, while transforming into NatureBoy, as renamed, he wrote in verse the end he expected.

From Birth ...

At birth, how to survive was all I needed to know
so all I got went to my mouth,
and fate decreed that I should survive and grow.


My next stage was learning mobility
as desires cause me to move,
turn, crawl, and then walk with liberty.

Being protected from the natural environment
social standards I was required to learn,
so from training on the pot to school I went.

Next was higher schooling or to the work force
and here the choice became mine,
but once it's work until death it is the course.

Consideration for mating becomes intense about here
so I searched for the perfect mate,
and with our planned uniting did both our families cheer.

Now life becomes routine, with most learning behind
I accept this my social lot of boredom,
but by entertainment and vacations some excitement I do find.

Throughout this course some form of god was pushed on me
to choose god, the devil, or become atheist,
but only a god saves man from hell for all eternity.

There's a Theist group who teaches the concept of New Birth
by which we are saved from the burning hell,
by receiving it we are set apart from all other man of earth.

If by New Birth I'm set apart from all other man
should the above routine be mine,
or is there another course set for all who are Born Again?

To New Birth

Looking over the above I see a change in my course
which parted me from the natural environment
to satisfy social standards, by training it was enforced.

Being Born Again I must redo my mental slate
to follow a routine given from within,
and like all lifes in nature accept destiny's fate.

Before the training started what I did came from within
as conditions dictated my course,
to grow up in New Birth it's there I must again begin.

Without the conditioning clothing I would never wear,
flesh nor cooked foods would be my meals,
cold nor heat would I reject, nor control my odor or hair.

Had I been born in nature I would never want a house,
the environment would educate me well,
and needing only mother's nursing she would never need a spouse.

Mating would be for reproduction, not the pleasure of the act,
if by natural laws I was left to live,
and at puberty I would first mate is a well-known fact.

Both genders would be man, boys, girls, and children our divisions,
femininity and masculinity would be balanced in both,
and each would be responsible for the results of their decisions.

Technology I would see as my own mechanical ability
which, being made can not exceed its maker,
but by depending on it we are weakened quite extensively.

Being in a New Birth such strengths I would regain,
I'll physically do what man has long forgotten,
and being God's child would become God again.

    Dana, you are so correct! Once we hit the highest hight of our being it is then time to become the individual man were made to become, thus, the new birth began the first chapter of everlasting life, no more discarnatings.

    Thank you for your analysis, I c couldn't have said it better.

    We are born, we learn how to walk, talk, run. Then, we start school, some go to college, find a job, get married and have kids. Now, we've reached all of our milestones each one celebrated with applause and fanfare as we were inclining, moving upward--"We did good!"

    Now we've reached the peak (hit all of our expected, worldly milestones) and are on the decline. We are in our good or bad marriages. Jobs we either love or hate. And, there's no more celebration, no applause, no more "milestones" and we wonder why people feel empty or why there is a thing called middle-age crisis.

    This is where you have to reinvent yourself because you're finally free from all the worldly expectations. I remember when a young relative of mine was moving away and I asked her why? I'll never forget what she said:

    "I want the freedom to make my own choices good or bad. I don't want anyone forcing their views, or opinions on me. I don't want to feel like I have to live up to everyone's expectations!" She was good in expressing how she already knew everyone would be watching ready to praise or criticize how, when, or if she hit those milestones and she didn't need that kind of pressure.

    She turned out pretty well, I think understanding true joy came from living life and, not everyone's expectations of life played a role.

    Thank you John.

    That was written somewhere in the early '80s during my transiting into NatureBoy, you might have seen. Just after awakening this morning I was unable to go back to sleep when it came to my mind and wouldn't leave so I decided to post it.

    Thanks for riding along with me on my sojourn through earth, may you find something to inspire you as you see the view along my journey. That's why I travel along with you, you have lessons for me.

    An interesting and enjoyable poetic journey you take us on here, brother Elijah. From birth to being "born again."
