The Story of Mother

Published by Wes Penre, April 6, 2021

There were two babies in a mother’s womb. One baby asked the other. ‘Do you believe in life after delivery?’

The twin replied, ‘Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what 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 in 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 have need of, but the umbilical cord is so short that life after delivery is to be logically excluded.’

The second baby insisted, ‘Well, I believe there really is something after we are delivered, and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this cord anymore.’ ‘More nonsense,’ the first responded. ‘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. 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, and move and have our being. Without Her this world would not, and could not, exist.’

‘Well I don’t see her, so it is only logical that she doesn’t exist,’ the first baby said.

To which the second replied, ‘Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus, and really listen, you can perceive her presence, and you can hear her loving voice, calling down to us from above.’

  1. it is amazing how stories talk to our (un)conscious mind,or better,to our heart.there is a power in stories-parables.

  2. We are in Sofia’s womb but we need to leave..that’s the origin of a myth about the monster mother who ate her children.. Sofia fell and deceived us to pursue her

  3. Wow, this story is quite apropos — my 31 yr old beautiful, vibrant son was found too late from a heroin OD on March 21, 2021 and I must believe he has gone on to a better realm in a still-individuated state. I will find you and meet up again, Zachary, my precious son.

      1. Hi Luisa, I am a mother. A devastated, heartbroken mother yet I know he is onto another adventure after leaving this plane. A better one.

  4. beautifully writen though i don‘t believe that what we call source is neither femine nor masculine..
    i think writing your one books was a good decision seems to be a talent of yours
    are you planning to add illustrations to your book?

  5. I like how one is positive and one is negitive reminds me of the constand arguing in my own head. And the storie of which wolf do u feed. N also makes it easier to understand the whole picture easier

  6. Nice story. Thank you.

    Question: So, if mother/goddess/wisdom is all around us, then who is in the Orion?
