Umbilical Chords


Every life has an Umbilical Cord connected to the universe - an unseen passage through which our lives are being nourished and by which we attain the shape and size to be born. When we gain maturity to be free upon the universal sphere we are disconnected and liberated to the vastest cosmos. It was my heavenly mother who detached myself from her physical body by cutting the Umbilical Cord connected to her, and my divine father from the rest of the world by cutting the unseen cord that attached me to the rest of the physical world. Probably, each time I cried aloud for detachment causes pain initially though it free us ultimately. They have flown away towards the horizons of eternity and when I look at the skies, there are colours fading into each other to make the mystic dark. In the silence I can listen to their laughter, I can hear them cautioning to see myself fit for life, I can hear them weeping when I fall tired upon the hardest paths. But everytime when I fall, I see those arms stretching towards me to see their son standing up again, fearless! This is the magic of parental love that can never be compared to any other bond in the world.
