Q. This makes me to think how babies come out retarded and what the causes of retardation in babies are.

My heart some time trembles when I see some parents dedicating their whole life for their retarded babies whom they gave birth after few years of their marriage. This makes me to think how babies come out retarded and what the causes of retardation in babies are. Is it not in our hands?
A1Hi there,

My opinion is that we are all perfect - just the way we are regardless of whether we are well or ill, beautiful or ugly, nice or mean. There is a perfect balance in the Universe – we cannot have positive without the negative – to think otherwise is to be ignorant. There is no a curse without a blessing nor a blessing without a curse. We are all part of the divine matrix – a matrix of love (as Dr Demartini likes to call it). The reason we don’t see any of this is only because we don’t look.

If you can watch a documentary about the beginning of life, you would see that there are billions of things that can go 'wrong'. This would include genes not in their 'proper' place. This is why it is called "The Miracle of Life". I am not a religious person, but this may be your calling in life; your challenge; call it the way you like.
