A Concept of God?


This came my way yesterday and to my mind certainly provides food for thought. Happy Sunday.

  • 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 listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.”

    Maybe this was one of the best explanations of the concept of GOD.

An Interesting Concept


“To decide we don’t believe in something, it has to exist for us to have an opinion about it.”

The above came to me from a daughter of a friend who is an avid reader and collector of quotes and it makes perfect sense to me.

Choose something you don’t believe in and see where it takes you when you truly think about it….very interesting concept.

A Human Being vs Being Human


Here’s a quote that came my way yesterday: “There is a lot of difference between a human being and being human.” Interesting concept, don’t you think?

We could never fully define either, but to my mind, a human being is just that…being alive, being busy, being active, being in love, being joyful, being sad, being hungry, being here, being there, being sick, being healthy…and on and on and on…boundless descriptions of what a human being is all about.

Being human on the other hand is being all the things we are meant to be as humans: caring, loving, compassionate, thoughtful, truthful, considerate, kind, faithful, fruitful, interested, attentive…and on and on and on…boundless descriptions of what being human is all about.

Please feel free to add your input. It would make me very happy to hear from you…after all, I’m only human.
