Soul Curry: Interviewing 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 mankind?” God answered…”That they get bored with childhood, they rush to grow up, and then they 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 in the present nor in the future. That they live as if they will never die, and die as if 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?”

“To learn that they cannot make anyone love them. All they can do is to let themselves be loved. To learn that it is not good to compare themselves to others. 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 reach person is not the one who has the most, but is one who needs least. To learn that it is not enough that they forgive one another, but they must also forgive themselves.”

P.S.: I do not believe in God…well almost. (At least not in the colloquial sense). But if a good message has God as an ‘Actor’, I don’t mind sharing it.
