I dreamed I had an INTERVIEW WITH GOD.
“So, you would like to interview
GOD asked.
“If you have time,” I said.
GOD smiled. “My
time is eternity… what questions do you have in mind for me?”
“What surprises you the most
about humankind?” GOD answered…
“That they get bored with
childhood that they rush to grow up, and then long to be children again.”
“That they lose their health to
make money… and then lose their money to restore their health.”
“That by thinking anxiously
about the future, they forget the present, such that they live in neither the
present nor the future.”
“That they live as if they would
never die, and die as though they had never lived.”
GOD’s hand took mine… and we were silent for a while.
And then I asked, “As a parent, what are some of life’s lessons you
want your children to learn?”
GOD replied, “To
learn they cannot make anyone love them. All they can do is let themselves be
“To learn that it is not good to
compare themselves to others.”
“To learn to forgive by
practicing forgiveness.”
“To learn that it only takes a
few seconds to open profound wounds in those they love, and it can take many
years to heal them.”
“To learn that a rich person is
not one who has the most, but is one who needs the least.”
“To learn that there are people
who love them dearly, but simply do not yet know how to express or show their
“To learn that two people can
look at the same thing, and see it differently.”
“To learn that it is not enough
that they forgive one another, but they must also forgive themselves.”
“Thank you for your time,”
I said humbly.
“Is there anything else you would like your children to know?”
GOD smiled, and said… “Just
know that I am here…ALWAYS.”
