Excerpt from the Poem, The Road Not Taken
By Robert Frost in 1920
“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both–and be one traveler, long I stood–and looked down one as far as I could, to where it bent in the undergrowth…”
I have always wished for science to forward the advancement of human cloning. I relish the concept of being able to take two roads—or many roads for that matter—and to discover the world through multiple perspectives with the same set of eyes.
It is not that I wish to be different, but only to be more of the same, where I could explore the caverns of Viet Nam or walk through the Greek ruins in Sicily. I would eat Calamari on the beach of the Adriatic Sea or chatter away in Mandarin in Beijing, with a friend over a cup of tea.
If we were cloned, I challenge any of us to make fun of another person’s beliefs or political views. We would have already found the reasons why in their eyes, and heard in their laughter and their cries the crux of their existence.
But we are not clones. We can only be in one place at one time and take one road at a time. Or is this really the truth? Can we not try to breach the gaping hole in our hearts and press for an awakening in our Spirits—an awakening that moves us beyond the realm of the physical?
What if you were to open your eyes tomorrow morning to the realization that you are more than you thought you were? What if you were to meet your true self for the first time in your bathroom mirror?
How exciting, how exhilarating would it be to know that you can spread your wings and travel anywhere and talk to anyone? What if you are multiples of the same individual, with a pulsating soul, who longs to experience the world as God intended?
Here’s the good news! You are the multiples of one. We all have the gift of seeing. Most of us choose not to do so out of fear or just a lack of knowledge that it’s possible. If you would like to learn more about how to take the road less traveled, please contact me. I’d like to help you to take that first step.
