عنوان : 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 humankind?"

>God answered...

>"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, such that they live in neither the present nor the future."  

>"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 parent, 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 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 have not yet learned how to express or show their feelings."

>"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."
