The Interview With God

Recommended Posts

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.”

Children are innocent,

Teenagers are messed in the head,

Adults are even more messed up,

And elderly are like children.


Well, not exactly those words.

What a great tie in to Porno for Pyros.
