From our Exchanges

There is in man a power to see the invisible, to hear the inaudible, to know the unknowable, to enter into the non-sensuous and the spiritual; but this power lies in many a man dormant. Glimmerings of light come to him, glimpses of the invisible are afforded him; but for the most part he walks by sight and not by faith. He must born from above. The power to see the invisible must be awakened. He must be lifted out of his lower self; out of a lower realm into a higher realm. Then he sees what he did not before see; he understands what he did not before understand. He finds himself in a world of which before he knew nothing, although it was all about him. Learning will not give this birth, any more than a knowledge of music will give an understanding of art, or the appreciation of art will give a comprehension of literature. . . . One may be as learned, as wealthy, as respectable, as orthodox, as Nicodemus, but unless he is born from above he cannot see the kingdom whose fruits are love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, meekness, temperance, faith.
