Cries - of children at birth; their meaning

All children cry when they are born, but not in the same way. Some are heard to make a touching, plaintive sound: they are expressing nostalgia for the region of light, joy and peace they have left. But at the same time they say, 'God's will be done!' and they accept in advance the trials that await them, whereas many others cry in a desperate, tragic fashion, screaming rebelliously, for they feel like caged animals and already know their life will be like a prison. The truth is that on earth no one is spared, just because it is earth and we are entering very particular conditions. So we have to find the best means of avoiding being crushed by events, of controlling them, instead, and making the best use of them for our evolution. Of course, we are not able straightaway to alter our reactions to what happens to us. We always begin by feeling perturbed, distressed, shocked. Yes, but once we have understood that these difficulties are necessary for our training, we become much quicker and better at pulling ourselves together.
