As we get bigger and bigger The distance between ourselves and that other Outside world becomes smaller and smaller And this world that we are inside Which seems so huge in the beginning And so infinitely welcoming Has become very uncomfortable And we are obliged to be born And my father says that birth is so Chaotic and violent that he’s sure That the moment of birth, we’re all thinking “This is it. This is death. This is the end of my life.” And then we’re born and it’s a surprise Cause its just the beginning

1 Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” 3 Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 4 Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?” 5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
John 3:1-8 ESV
