Birth - Spiritual Meanings

Spiritual Meanings

  • Astrology is based upon the belief that an individual's life is influenced by the geocentric positions of the sun, moon, and planets in the sky or below the horizon at the moment of birth; a natal chart is calculated using the exact time, date, and place of birth to try to interpret these cyclical influences on a person's life.
  • Born again, a term used primarily in Protestant Christianity, is associated with salvation, conversion, and spiritual rebirth.
  • Rebirth is a belief that a person is born again after their death based on the karma of their previous births.
  • Virgin birth of Jesus is the Christian doctrine that asserts that Jesus Christ was born to a virgin, and thus that his conception was carried out without an earthly father.

Famous quotes containing the words spiritual and/or meanings:

    Concord is just as idiotic as ever in relation to the spirits and their knockings. Most people here believe in a spiritual world ... in spirits which the very bullfrogs in our meadows would blackball. Their evil genius is seeing how low it can degrade them. The hooting of owls, the croaking of frogs, is celestial wisdom in comparison.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Well, “slithy” means “lithe and slimy.” “Lithe” is the same as “active.” You see, it’s like a portmanteau—there are two meanings packed up into one word.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
