I Dreamed I Had An Interview With God
I dreamed I had an interview with God...
"So you would like to interview me?" God asked.
"If you have the time" I said.
God smiled. "My time is eternity. What questions do you have in mind for me?"
"What surprises you most about people?"
"That they get bored with childhood, 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,
"That they live as if they will 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 Father, what are some of life's lessons you want your children to learn?"
"To learn they cannot make anyone love them. All they can do is let themselves be loved.
"To learn that it is not good to compare themselves to others.
"To learn to forgive by practising forgiveness.
"To learn that it only takes a few
seconds to open profound wounds in those they love,
"To learn that a rich person is not the one who has the most, but the one who needs the least.
"To learn that there are people who
love them dearly,
"To learn that two people can look at the same thing and see it differently."
"Thank you for your time" I said humbly. "Is there anything else you would like me to know?"
God smiled and said, "Just know that I am here... always."
