>Lessons to Learn and Live By
>With my newly acquired title as a journalist, I decided to strike a high note.
>"Come in," God said to me, "so, you would like to interview Me?"
>"If you have the time," I said.
>He smiled and said: "My time is called eternity and is enough to do
>everything. What questions do you have in mind to ask me?"
>"None that are new to you. What's the one thing that surprises you most
>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 never
>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 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. There will
>be others better or worse than they are.
>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 dreams do not require great wings, but a landing gear
>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 two people can look at the same thing and see something
>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 love ones, they very quickly push
>them away; and by letting go of those they love, they will be side by side
>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."
