What would you wish for?

For the Write Tribe Festival - Rediscovering your blogging groove

Day 2 - Answer a question

The question I've chosen today is:

If God granted you one wish for yourself what would it be?

The reason I say "for yourself" is because if it was just any one wish we would either ask something for humanity or for members of our family etc. The idea is to answer this for oneself. But the question is not an easy one to answer.

The categories one could wish things for generally fall into these: fame, health, wealth, travel, love, spiritual enlightenment or some miracle one is hoping for.

I don't seek fame as with that comes great responsibility and many sacrifices. Besides I would not want fame as a granted wish but one I have worked for.

To ask for health could alter the course of one's destiny. To change the balance of karma inevitably means there are other consequences to bear.

Having a great abundance of wealth and spending it for the betterment of humanity could of course benefit many. But wealth is such a transient thing.

Travel as a wish simply does not appeal. I've had the good fortune of seeing a lot of the world. Travel for me is now about visiting people and travelling to places of pilgrimage. If God so wills it and if it is in my destiny, then someday I will visit the places I want to see. Travel for me is a wasted wish.

Asking for a miracle sounds exciting, but what would I ask for? Miracles are all around us, every day of our lives, if we view life itself as a miracle.

Besides all of the above are all temporary things, here today gone tomorrow. I would want to ask for something more permanent. Something that would remain with me forever.

As for love, I'm sure that the Lord made a soulmate for all of us and when the time is right, that person will appear in our lives.  All things happen in Divine timing. Why hasten the inevitable? And maybe by speeding up the process, we create issues for ourselves when we are not in alignment for that meeting. For true love comes when we are spiritual vibrational matches and that takes time.

Spiritual enlightenment would be the ultimate, but to just have it bestowed, somehow robs me of the pleasure of discovering it for myself in this lifetime and across others.

In the end there is only one wish that would keep the balance of all the things I am meant to experience, discover and achieve on my own and live with me eternally. And that wish is to have a glimpse of that Great Spirit, my beloved Lord Rama. To spend even a moment in time with Him here on Earth would bring me joy and bliss that cannot be described in words. And having experienced that, what else could I ask for?

  6. Very deep indeed. On a lighter note here is a joke on granting wishes :)

    A Marwadi having no children , no money , no home and a blind mother ...
    Prays sincerely to God for improving his life style..
    God is very pleased with his prayer, and............ Grants him one wish........... just one !!!!!!!!!!!!
    The Marwadi says OK God, thanks, my one and only wish is - 'I want my Mom to SEE my wife putting, Rupees twenty million worth of diamonds around my Child's neck, in my Mercedes Benz parked near the swimming pool of our new 5 acre bungalow in Beverly Hills.'
    GOD: Damn it! 'I still have a lot to learn from these Marwadis...........:)
