Interview with God - Inspirational

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?" 
God 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..."

God's hands took mine 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 it takes years to build trust, 
and a few seconds to destroy it.  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 basis!  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
totally different.  To learn that a true friend is someone who knows
everything about them...and loves them anyway.  To learn that it is not
always enough that they be forgiven by others, but that they have to forgive

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".
