    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."
