AWAKENING by an unknown author

In a mother's belly there were two babies. One asks the other:
- "Do you believe in life after birth?"
- "Of course! Something must exist after birth. Maybe we are here because we need to prepare for what we will become later."
- Ridiculous! There is no life after birth! How do you think this life would be?"
- "I don't know, but surely there will be more light than there is here. Maybe we will walk on our own two feet and we can feed ourselves through our mouthes!"
- "That is absurd! Walking is impossible. And eat through our mouth? How ridiculous! The umbilical chord is how we are fed. Let me tell you something: There can't be life after birth. The umbilical chord is too short."
- "Well I believe there must be something. And it could be just a little bit different than what we are used to here."
- "But nobody has ever returned from the other side after birth. Birth is the end of life. All in all, life is nothing more than a stressful existence in the dark that does not lead to anything."
- "Well, I don't know how it will be exactly after birth, but surely we will see Mother and she will take care of us."
- "Mother? You believe in Mother? And where do you think she is?"
- "Where? All around us! We live inside her and through her. Without her this whole world would not exist!"
- "Well I don't believe it! I have never seen Mother so, logically, she does not exist."
- "Yes but sometimes when we are very silent, we can hear her singing or feel how she caresses our world. You know, I think there is a real life waiting for us, and that right now we are just preparing ourselves for it.
