Life after Life
an allegory

      Twins, a sister and a brother, were talking to each other in the womb.   The little sister said to the little brother,   'I believe that there is life after birth !'

      Her brother protested :   'No, No, this is all there is.   This is a dark cozy place and we have nothing else to do but to cling on the the cord that feeds us.'

      But the little girl insisted :   'There must be something more than this dark place, there must be something else where there is light and freedom to move.'   Still she could not convince her twin brother.   Then ... after some silence, she said hesitantly :   'I have something else to say, and I'm afraid you won't believe that either, but I think there is a mother !'

      Her little brother now became furious :   ' A mother, a mother, what are you talking about ?   I have never seen a mother and neither have you.   Who put that idea in your head ?   As I told you, this place is all we have so let's be content.'

      The little sister finally said :   'Don't you feel the pressure sometimes ?   It's really unpleasant and sometimes even painful.'

      'Yes', he answered, 'What's special about that ?'

      'Well', the sister said, 'I think this pressure is there to get us ready for another place, much more beautiful than this, where we will see our mother face to face !'

      'Don't you think that's exciting ?'
