In a mother’s womb were two babies.

One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?”

The other replied, “Hmm… Yes I think I do. There has to be something after delivery. Isn’t it? You know sometimes I also think, maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for the same.”

“Nonsense,” said the other. “There cannot be a life after delivery. What all is there is here itself.”

“I don’t know, but I think there will be more light than here. Maybe in that life we will be able to move around and feed ourselves from our mouths.”

The other said “This is absurd! Moving is impossible. And eat with our mouths? Ridiculous. The umbilical cord supplies nutrition. Life after delivery is to be excluded. The umbilical cord is too short.”

“I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here.” the other replied.

“No one has ever come back from there. Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery it is nothing but darkness and it takes us nowhere. Stop dreaming.”

“Well, I don’t know,” says the other, “but certainly we will see mother and she will take care of us.”

“Mother? You believe in mother? Ha. Where is she now?”

“She is all around us. Isn’t she? It is in her that we live. Without her there would not be this world.”

“I don’t see her, so it’s only logical that she doesn’t exist.”

To which the other lost in his thoughts spoke to himself, “Yes, you are right. We have not seen her. But sometimes you know when you’re in that silence, complete silence, in that moment, I think you can hear her, and sometimes even feel her caressing you.”
