A being who has not been your mother
at one time in the past is not easy to find.
A being who has not been your father
at one time in the past is not easy to find.
A being who has not been your brother
at one time in the past is not easy to find.
A being who has not been your sister
at one time in the past is not easy to find.
A being who has not been  your son
at one time in the past is not easy to find.
A being who has not been your daughter
at one time in the past is not easy to find.

Why is that? From an unfathomable beginning comes rebirth.
[Hence, there are many ways which all have been related.]

– The Buddha (Mata Sutta)
