    Gauree 9:
    He leaves the womb, and comes into the world;
    as soon as the air touches him, he forgets his Lord and Master. ||1||
    O my soul, sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord. ||1||Pause||
    You were upside-down, living in the womb; you generated the intense meditative heat of 'tapas'.
    Then, you escaped the fire of the belly. ||2||
    After wandering through 8.4 million incarnations, you came.
    If you stumble and fall now, you shall find no home or place of rest. ||3||
    Says Kabeer, meditate, vibrate upon the Lord, the Sustainer of the earth.
    He is not seen to be coming or going; He is the Knower of all. ||4||1||11||62||

    The more knowledge we accumulate, the more confused we get. The more conveniences we invent, the less time we seem to have. The more pleasures we create, the more pain we need to confront. What is the purpose of this life?

    When will I be truly happy with my life?
    Can I really trust my beliefs?
    How do I know if my decisions are the right ones?
    What is the definition of "love"?
    How do I get my prayers answered?
    Why doesn't money bring me more pleasure?
    Is life pre-ordained or do I determine what happens to me?
    Are there absolute truths in this world or only people's "perceptions"?

    According to the Jewish Talmud, before we were born, when we were safely ensconced in the comfort of the womb, we all had access to the ultimate search engine. God dispatches a personal angel to each and every soul in utero, who sits besides each and every one of us, and actually teaches us all the wisdom we will ever need to know on this planet. Everything.
    And then...just before we are born...the angel gives us a little "tap" between the nose and the upper lip and everything he taught is immediately forgotten. That is how all human beings receive that small indentation in the skin beneath their noses, anatomically known as the "philtrum." It is our mission in life to remember what the angel taught us.
