From Matter to Life to Mind...
AN UNFOLDING CONSCIOUSNESS
I dreamed I had an interview with God
"Inspiring millions, one soul at a time."
Interview with God
9 October 2000
|"...My dear child, please remember that people will forget
what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made
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
"What surprises you most about mankind?"
"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

I sat there for a while enjoying the moment. I thanked Him for his time

24 hours a day. All you have to do is ask for me, and I will answer." With that, He
looked into my eyes and whispered these words:
