From Matter to Life to Mind...
AN UNFOLDING CONSCIOUSNESS
I dreamed I had an interview with God
"Inspiring millions, one soul at a time."
Interview with God
9 October 2000
|"...My dear child, please
remember that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you
did, but people will never forget how you made them feel..."
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 mankind?"
"That they get bored of 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 took my hands 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.
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. All will be
judged individually on their own merits, not as a group on a comparison
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 can buy everything but happiness.
To learn that two people can look at the same thing and see it very
To learn that a true friend in someone who knows everything about
them...and likes them anyway.
To learn that it is not always enough that they be forgiven by others, but
that they have to forgive themselves."
I sat there for a while enjoying the moment. I thanked Him
for his time and for all that He has done for me and my family, and He
replied, "Anytime. I'm here 24 hours a day. All you have to do is ask for
me, and I will answer." With that, He looked into my eyes and whispered
"My dear child, please remember that people will
forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will
never forget how you made them feel."
