•Interview with God•
I asked : “What’s the one thing that surprises you most about mankind?”
• He answered: “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…”
• His hands took mine and we were silent.
After a long period, I said, “May I ask you another question?”
He replied with a smile. “As a Father, what would you ask your children to do for the new year?”
→ • “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 a rich person is not one who has the most, but is one who needs the least.
→ • To learn that they should control their attitudes, otherwise their attitudes will control them.
→ • 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 show their feelings.
→ • To learn that money can buy everything but happiness.
→ • To learn that while at times they may be entitled to be upset, that does not give them the right to upset those around them.
→ • To learn that great reams do not require great wings, but a landing gear, to achieve.
→ • To learn that true friends are scarce; he/she who has found one has found a true treasure.
→ • To learn that it is not always enough that they be forgiven by others, but that they forgive themselves.
→ • To learn that they are masters of what they keep to themselves and slaves of what they say.
→ • To learn that they shall reap what they plant; if they plant gossip they will harvest intrigues; if they plant love they will harvest happiness.
→ • To learn that true happiness is not to achieve their goals, but to learn to be satisfied with what they already achieved.
→ • To learn that happiness is a decision. They decide to be happy with what they are and have, or die from envy and jealousy of what they lack.

→ • To learn that those who are honest with themselves without considering the consequences go far in life.
→ • To learn that even though they may think they have nothing to give, when a friend cries with them, they find the strength to appease the pain.
→ • To learn that by trying to hold on to loved ones, they very quickly push them away; and by letting go of those they love, they will be side by side forever.
→ • To learn that even though the word “love” has many different meanings, it loses value when it is overstated.
→ • To learn that they can never do something extraordinary for Me to love them; I simply do.
→ • To learn that the shortest distance they could be from Me is the distance of a prayer.” God bless.
