Trust the Spirit Within

During his incredible life, Dr. Wayne Dyer helped us to look at ourselves as eternal beings traveling a long road through eternity.  In the following parable, he used humor to emphasize this point and to remind us of the Loving Source who gave us life:

Conversation in the womb: a parable of life after delivery

by Dr. Wayne Dyer


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 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.”

I hope enjoyed this parable and it helped to look at self as an eternal being.  Please visit Youtube for a free mediation on “Trusting the Spirit Within.”  The link to my meditation is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=627t1bz6t-s     Namaste
