TITLE: Life within a life
By sharmila sanka


Any alien thing that enters our body has to make an exit some time or the other. Even a tiny thin thorn puts us to suffering if not driven out of our body. Isnít it amazing and wonderful to feel the work of God in the creation of a little body growing within a body? It is not uncommon to be called would-be mothers but at times, when we stop for a moment and start thinking deeply about the life we bear within ourselves, it is so astonishing and thrilling. The greatest fulfillment of a woman is not when she is married or treasured but when she becomes a ĎMother.í

We face so much inconvenience due to stuffy stomach- one of the reasons being over eating which takes place in our stomach or body. But the same stomach when carries a huge baby inside of it for 9 months, it still never feels burdened or inconvenient.
The changes that take place during a great life changing event are immense. Leaving Science aside which helped reveal the truth about a life living inside a life, we ought to be grateful to the Lord who with lots of care made such impossible things happen smoothly for a baby inside the womb- the way the baby breathes inside, the manner in which it acquires its nutrients from the mother, the way a motherís appetite doubly increases with the creation of life inside, the way the baby manages to live inside a dark, greasy home of no companion and many more wonders not known to the little mind. Who taught the baby to turn head-down in preparation for birth?

We often hear different stories about babies in the present days that they completely understand what is going on outside the womb, they can see, hear and respond and reciprocate to the outside sounds; they are always in contact with God; they dream, they smile, they listen, they even walk on the walls of the uterus, they cry; they experience karma from the time they are inside the womb and so on and so forth. Isnít it worth for the mothers to pacify them even before they enter the outside world? Firstly mothers need to be peaceful and pacified in order to bring a hearty smile to their babies inside the womb.

Mothers who are expecting their babies, always be peaceful at heart; be less selfish if not completely selfless in this metal age; start off your day with a Peace prayer which will be grasped and digested by the babies in the womb; try to smile at difficulties and problems in life at this time as it affects the babies too; remember if you are happy, so is the baby not to say about how your sorrow affects the baby. Pray that the baby should be as divine and gracious as the Lord, as illumining as the Sun, as selfless and humble as the mighty nature and as sweet as a motherís love. Pray not for a great being to be born but for a good and noble being; pray not that the baby should serve itself but that it should serve the world around. Narrate inspiring stories to them even while they are inside the womb for, they do listen to your thoughts and words both loud and quiet.

Pat your babies inside the womb when they kick and they will surely respond to you. Speak to them sweetly and become the first one to pour love into their lives for them to develop unbounded love towards you and people around you. Describe the ways the babies ought to mold themselves into good and responsible individuals. Above all, become the first teacher to them by showing their ultimate destination i.e. God who is the very source they came from. Explain how divine it is to connect with the ultimate energy and let them take solace in that powerful and blissful energy. As a would-be-mother, these are my prayers and I wish every would-be-mother to live a divine, peaceful life to give birth to ĎPeaceí itself to establish the same in the world. A mother can change the world with the growing life within her life. A motherís ultimate fulfillment is when she bears two lives within one body; it itself is her greatest boon.

I was a little bit startled by references to "karma" and "blissful enegry", terms not often seen here. You're absolutely right, though, about the miraculous and precious time of carrying a child.

Thought-provoking, a;though I can't say I agreed with it all. But I did like the things you advise us to pray for our children - born or unborn
