Interview With God


I dreamed I had an interview with God.

"Come in," God said. "So, you would like to interview Me?"

"If you have the time," I said.

God smiled and said:
"My time is eternity and is enough to do everything;
what questions do you have in mind to ask me?"

"What surprises you most about people?" I asked.

God answered:
"That they get bored being children,
are in a 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
neither for the present nor the future.

That they live as if they will never die,
and they die as if they had never lived..."

God's hands took mine and we were silent for while
and then I asked... "As a parent, what are some of life's lessons
you want your children to learn?"

God replied with a smile:
"To learn that they cannot make anyone love them.
What they can do is to let themselves be loved
and let themselves love others.

To learn that what is most valuable
is not what they have in their lives,
but who they have in their lives.

To learn that it is not good
to compare themselves to others.

To learn that a rich person is
not the one who has the most,
but is one who needs the least.

To learn that it only takes a few seconds
to open profound wounds in persons we love,
and that it takes many years to heal them.

To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.

To learn that there are persons that love them dearly,
but simply do not know how to express or
show their feelings.

To learn that money cannot buy happiness.

To learn that two people can look at the same thing
and see it totally differently.

To learn that a true friend is someone who knows
everything about them... and loves them, anyway.

To learn that it is not always enough
that they be forgiven by others,
but that they also have to forgive themselves."

I sat there for a while enjoying the moment.
I thanked Him for his time and for all that
He had done for me and my family, and He
replied, "Anytime. I'm here. All you have to
do is ask for me, and I'll answer."

People will forget what you said.
People will forget what you did ...
but people will never forget how you made them feel.
At lease not deep down inside, where it counts.
