One on One with the One - Part Deux

the sequel to the hugely popular (huh?) post "One on One with the One - Part One" ;)

M: lots of people have been questioning on similar lines, but havent found answers yet
G: some of the smarter guys in your species, aristotle , einstein etc have said that if the right question is asked, the answer can be found
M: why didnt they ask the right ones then?
G: oh well, maybe that wasnt the purpose of their existence...
M: is that the Truth then? finding a purpose for your existence and then doing it ? actually Wilde has said "Truth, in the matters of religion, is simply the opinion that has survived.
G: ah Oscar, he was a smart one..hehe... reminds me, he has also said that "When the gods wish to punish us, they answer our prayers."
M: is that a truth too?
G: hmmm, let me put it this way, there was a time when prayers were made only when you guys reached the limits of endurance,
these days you actually think its my job to live your life...
M: you put us here, so....
G: when you drive a car, do you use the handbrake for emegency or always?
M: okay, i think i get your point, and yeah, i still dont have a car, thank YOU
G: here we go again, once in a while look around you
M: i do, and believe me, lots of people have cars.
G: grr, what about the people who cant even buy a bicycle?
M: yeah, but they were born that way
G: oh, and i suppose you had a hand in being born the way you are? lemme share some facts with you
- If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep .. you are richer than 75% of this world.
- If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace .. you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.
- If you woke up this morning with more health than illness ... you are more luckier than the million who will not survive this week.
- If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation .. you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.
- If you can practise your religion without fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death are luckier than three billion people in the world.
- If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful are lucky because the majority can, but most do not.
- and you can read this, you are luckier than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.
G: i should say "count your blessings and thank the lord" , but then you'll start saying that i have an ego.
M: but whats behind selective answering of prayers?
G: well, sometimes the answer is 'no'.
M: but what do you get by making people suffer?
G: you create the problems, i dont .......
M: like i said, rather, like you said, i dont chose where/how i am born..
G: what about the opportunities you are given?
M: you are saying that i have a choice..
G: yes, and all that happens is by your choice, there might be strings attached to all the choices, but you choose..Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live....smell the flowers, love, be loved, be kind, be fair.. be human, in the way i wanted you to be...
