Is there anything more?

In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: “Do you believe in life
after delivery?” The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something
after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be
later.”

“Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life
would that be?”

The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we
will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses
that we can’t understand now.”

The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our
mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we
need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically
excluded.”

The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different
than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”

The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover if there is life, then why has no one
has ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the
after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes
us nowhere.”

“Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and
she will take care of us.”

The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If
Mother exists then where is She now?”

The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her.
It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not and could not
exist.”

Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t
exist.”

To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus
and you really listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her
loving voice, calling down from above.”
