Mat and Mel were engaged in an intense conversation. They are in a world of their own with no one around. The world is just full of water and they are floating in it, occasionally holding each other’s hands. There is a connection between them and they believe that that’s how the life in the world they live in is. Each is individuals on their own and have a mind of their own and hence, a conversation always strikes well between them. They feel that there is someone holding their world.
The scene is a mother’s womb and Mat and Mel are twins about to come to reality. Mat and Mel were discussing of future life after delivery….
Mat asked Mel, “Do you believe in life after delivery?” Mel replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.” Mel is more optimistic and holds great hopes in her mind and believe positively always. Mel sees the light at the end of tunnel always and has practiced silence and search of herself well in the placenta.
“Nonsense,” said Mat. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”
Mat has been a man who doesn’t see hope in life and sees nothing bright ahead. Mat is like anyone who has been in an organization for years and believes that beyond that place where he is currently, life doesn’t exist.
To Mat’s question, Mel 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.” Mel is full of hopes for the best and imagines a beautiful future.
Mat couldn’t resist replying to Mel’s persistent hope for life after delivery… He 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.”
For Mat, logic is more pertinent than hope and imagination for a better future. Mat doesn’t believe in making uncertainty into reality and does not see him taking any risk. He is more comfortable with where he is and does not want to see a change positively.
Mel 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.”
Mat 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 Mel, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.” Mat replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is she now?”
Mel 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.”
Mat said to Mel: “Well I don’t see her, so it is only logical that she doesn’t exist.” Mel 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.”
There is this inner calling we have to listen to and move on in life, hoping for the best to come. We forget to listen to that and we are often doomed by that stuff going around us and driven by that transactional life.
Learn to listen in silence, you will find the calling from above!!!! , no matter who you are with or who you are surrounded with, the belief in yourself and your strong perceptions of life will make you find yourself.
A mother is what the baby inside a womb can imagine and believe that she exists. That’s the inner calling that the baby listens to as a future reality. While in darkness, it is the inner calling that we must listen to, no matter how troublesome the others around can get to.
An organization is like a mother’s womb and we float inside that with a variety of people around us pulling us down with their logical and negative thoughts. A self-awareness and a strong belief in the inner calling are what would keep you going undisturbed.
Learning to listen to your inner guidance is the hardest lessons in the world. Our inner guidance is more often tailored by the external guidance that we hear and see.
A silent listening would uncover the real inner call.
