Life After Birth

If you are just skimming, this quote is worth taking the time to read!

Life After Birth owes its inspiration to the anonymous quote below.

In a place and time not far from here twins were conceived. As they grew in awareness within the womb they shared the JOY of BEING alive. When they found their mother's cord they sang: "How great is our mother's love, she shares her own life with us! But as time pasted and they grew older great and frightening changes began happening to their bodies.
"What does it mean?" said the girl.
"It means our stay in this world is coming to an end." The boy answered.
"But I want to stay here forever!" she cried.
He responded, "We have no choice."
She asked hopefully, "Maybe there is life after birth?
"How can there be? "he said, "We'll shed our life cord, and life is not possible without it. Besides we have seen evidence that others were here before us and none have ever returned to tell us there is life after birth.
No, this is the end."
Despairing she said, "If everything ends in birth, what is the purpose of life? It's all meaningless! Maybe there is no mother after all?"
"There has to be," he protested. "How else did we get here? how do we remain alive?"
"Have you ever seen our mother?" she asked. "Maybe she lives only in our minds. maybe we just made her up to feel better?"
And so their last days in the womb were filled with fear and deep questioning. Finally the moment of birth arrived. When the twins had passed from their world and OPENED THEIR EYES they were DELIGHTED BEYOND their Wildest Dreams!
