A Unique DNA

I heard a comment in passing the other day that really struck me.

You know how that goes sometimes, where you know some little fact, perhaps even know that little fact for a long time, but then for some reason, perhaps all of a sudden that little fact really means something now?

Exactly what happened to me the other day.

It was this simple – I overheard someone mention that each and every person receives their unique DNA, their unique, fully-encoded definition of every aspect of their physical nature, at a very precise moment … conception.

No sooner, and definitely no later.

You don’t have to have any particular religious, philosophic, political, or any other particular world view to understand this fact. Rather, this is a very easily observable, well-accepted, scientific reality.

After that we begin changing in just about every aspect except this one … this central, well-defined structure which is the very definition of us as a unique person.

This is true for everyone and anyone who has ever been conceived. That’s right conceived, not born.

Why then, can we decide to take that unique individual, that unique person who carries their very own DNA, their own personal definition of who they are, and deny them life?

Why?

    This comment is so true. I have now had the same ah-ha! moment. It is so wonderful to think that every thing I am I have been “allowed to be” because I was “allowed to be.”
    Your comment is profound.

    Thanks!

    Michelle, thank you for the very kind comment, yet in truth any meaning in the comment comes not from the comment itself, but the immensely profound reality that we struggle to comprehend.

    And comprehending even an exciting small portion, we struggle even more to express.

    No matter, the profundity of life itself shines through! We are given so very much …

    Thanks again for your kind comment.
