What would you ask....


So.. if you had the chance to spend ten minutes with God/Buddha/Deity Of Your Choice and could discuss or ask anything you like, what would it be?

(I answered in the comments section.)

Selfish question: Do they think about me?

Kid question: what is the most important thing I can do to keep my kids safe?

Unselfish question: there are way too many things to question.

thailandchani said...

Okay. I'm actually responding to my own post. I've completely flipped.

Selfish question: Am I learning my lessons well? I'd ask for guidance.

Funny question: Can I read the user documentation?

Unselfish question: How can I best be of service to others?

The usual, I guess:

Who am I?
What am I here for?
Where am I going?

why does growth have to hurt?

Why are we here?
What is my path in this life?
Does karma work?

Julie Pippert said...

Curious: Is it really an intelligent universe?

Favor: Will you keep my kids safe and help them live a good life where they see blessings and find joy?

Favor: Will you put the love and respect of all life in every heart, please?

Selfish: Peace and contentment

I'll sstop there.

Why?

That about covers it.

I spend 10-20 minutes with my higher power every night before bed. The questions change everyday.

painted maypole said...

ack!!!

love. I'd talk about love and how to live it, every day, every minute, for everybody. I believe that God is love, so what better topic?

Defiantmuse said...

Hm. Interesting question.
I guess b/c I don't believe in a higher power or deity I'm not sure I can say. But if, on the off chance I was wrong and there was a being or something that just knew everything? I guess I'd ask how they felt about the things people do in their name and if people's interpretations of their message was way off or not.

Suki said...

Today, at this moment, I'd ask "How do you be happy?"
Yes, I'm exactly as muddled up about that as I seem.

Rebecca said...

Hard questions!

Selfish: Can I have a do-over with my son?

Unselfish: How can I be a channel of peace?

Brandi said...

how can I let go of anger and resentment?

or maybe just being in divine presense would do it...

Catherine said...

In one of my all time favorite stories (Till We Have Faces), the main character has spent her entire life compilling her questions and complaints for "the gods."

At the end of the book, she is given the chance to go before them. I don't think its giving too much away to say that in "their" presence, her questions melted away.

I think that's my answer. If I could have 10 minutes with The One Too Vast To Be Named, I would not want to waste a second of on questions, or talking at all.

I hope, more than anything in life, that that 10 minutes comes someday.

I would ask "May I go with you?"

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

My head swims with this question.

Chanda (aka Bea) said...

Is reincarnation real?

Can you please bring the world back into balance? ( I guess that would fall more under the catagory of request)

George Bush? Seriously?

Amy Y said...

I think I'd just ask if I'm on the right path... I think I am but it'd be nice to know for sure.

Why is it so damn hard?

slouching mom said...

Why do (you let) children die?

imbeingheldhostage said...

Wow, tough one. I'm sitting here staring at a blank comment form and nothing's coming. Apparently, I'd just sit and think about what to ask until I ran out of time.

womaninawindow said...

Is there an after?

The rest really sorts itself out and if I don't get to know that answer until after I die, then it's all for naught anyway.

I'd like to know where all of my dead homies are. And by homies I really mean my dad, my husband's dad, my grandmother, my cat...

Jules said...

How can I best save my daughter from her addiction?

Liberality said...

Is the universe also apart of the circle of life? I've been wondering that for several days now. Maybe because it's the end of a season and it reminds me of how round everything is.

Michelle Hix said...

Selfish question: Will you forgive me?

Unselfish question: Will you place burden on me and trust me to unselfishly give of myself and do great things without expectations and remind me how to do it all magnamimously for the right reasons?

PS - you rock and it's been nice chatting with you...do you have any questions for me?

dguzman said...

Here from FranIAm's blog. Nice blog you have here! This is a neat post. I think my questions would be:
1. So you really exist?
2. How did you make everything so beautiful--from memory of another place, or you just made it all up?
3. Where do we go when we die?
