Birth on the physical plane - death on the subtle planes

Daily Meditation:  Tuesday, November 2, 2010

What a worry it is for the doctor and hospital staff when a child that's about to be born presents feet first! Yes, because a child coming into the world should present head first. But this is just the physiological aspect of the matter; the position a child is born in has so much more to teach us. Watch how swimmers diving into the water launch themselves in head first, and when they want to come out of the water they do the opposite and raise their head. The fact that a child comes into the world head first shows that the spirit, descending from subtle regions, has to dive into a much denser world. This position is symbolic of the spirit sinking into matter. And conversely, when people die, they leave a very dense region to enter a subtler region, just like the swimmer coming up out of the water into the air, which is subtler. So birth is a form of death. Yes, the birth of a child is a death in the subtle regions. And death on the earth is a birth above.
