It takes a radical chicken to come out of the shell. You will never come out of the shell until you learn to be radical and pick your way out – – cracking the shell of mortal limitation, and coming through all materialism and breaking the skin of materialism and freeing yourself clearly and completely before you can be free indeed. It takes radicalness. It takes fanaticism. It takes ignorance.
Just look at the eggs, the fresh eggs. If after the manner of men they could speak, they would be saying to the incubated egg: “You are foolish coming out of that shell, something will crush you to death, and you will be no good.”
These natural truths are well worth considering from a psychological point of view that I AM conveying to you. Radicalness, ignorance, fanaticism, it takes such as that for the chicken to hatch. If the fresh egg could see and could have an understanding enough to see it and say it, he would say to the incubated egg: “Why, you are foolish picking your way out of that shell, why, you will run all over the place.”
The fresh egg does not even know that the chick has been formed in the incubated egg and it has been changed from an egg to a chick. So it is with the mortal mind, it does not know you have been born again. You have been formed in the shell, ready to be hatched whichever, coming out of the shell and through radicalness, picking your way out of materialism, picking your way out of mortality, breaking the shell of mortal limitation, coming through your Great Deliverer, where you are called.
I think I had better stop. It is indeed wonderful. Just think of it, I brought that little thought to consideration, as I know it was, and it is radical. I have put it before your mind’s eye that you might observe it and see the mystery of yourself rising from materialism and coming out of the shell of mortal limitation into the Glorious Liberty of the Sons of GOD.
