Out of the Womb
And into the Light
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting;
The soul that rises with us, our life’s star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar.
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory
Do we come from God,
Who is our home.
~ William Wordsworth
Remembering that our true point of origin isn’t a black speck of void or emptiness, which our incomplete and distorted memories allude to, but that it’s the eternal light and love of our heavenly Father is a monumental part of our birth as living souls.
As we grow and are pushed toward the light out of this watery womb, we perceive more clearly the Source of our origin, who we soon will “see” by the awakening light of his divine love, our heavenly Father. In this, we realize our mortal experience served to shape our individuality through free will so that we could abide with him and all of his creation in a harmony of oneness through the giving and receiving of true and pure love.
