We lay there for nine months. Each of us with no exception. Do you ever wonder what happens to us while we are in the mid air of being born ? Do you ever wonder what kind of thoughts goes to our soft shell brain? Do you ever wonder since we are so pure and without any prejudice how we perceive that world ? The world of our Mother’s womb .Do you ever wonder there is no fear but only perhaps certain joy of stillness ? It seems the first nine months of this life is so carefree that no one remembers anything. Almost surreal , hard to believe we were once in such calm solitaire.
Then it begins , Labor and we pass the tunnel of birth . The Placenta can no longer do its job, so the lungs take over. In the womb, a fetus’s lungs are filled with a fluid that helps them mature. We start maturing a way too different from the moment we are born into the life we know.
Jim Morrison once said ” This is the strangest life I have ever known..”
What happens next is a story different for each of us. We grow and we crave to have that brightest sun shine on us equally..
But we may soon realize that this world isn’t just the way it was in our mother ‘s womb.
Now we are dealing not only with the essential elements of life , Sulfur , Phosphorus , oxygen , Nitrogen , carbon , Hydrogen but also love , doubt , fear , deceive , decision making , social awareness, diseases and indeed self awareness.. and how all it implies to this life and it shapes our way of living ..just being !
Then we stumble about the believability and indeed ask ourselves what are we living for? Love is hard to believe, ask any lover. Life is hard to believe, ask any scientist. God is hard to believe, ask any believer. What is your problem with hard to believe?” Many all together simply stop to believe!
When we suffer a great deal in life, each additional pain is both unbearable .
This is about us, human beings ! how bare and vulnerable we come to this world and how we let this life sweeps us away..
The question always remains, is it life or do we allow life to damage us ?
“It’s important in life to conclude things properly. Only then can you let go. Otherwise you are left with words you should have said but never did, and your heart is heavy with remorse.”
