I was flipping through the Parade Magazine in this week's paper and saw the most intriguing article. It said if you could go back in time and spend a day with anyone, who would it be and why? Wow, the people and questions I'd have started popping like popcorn in my head.
Here are just a few. Feel free to add your own. I think this is grand food for thought.
The first and most obvious for me would be Jesus. Here are just a few of the questions I would ask him:
"People have said many things and I've had my own theories or insights about your life. So, tell me the real story. Were you actually nailed to a cross or is the entire thing a myth? What really happened? If you were actually tortured, did you feel any pain or were you able to "trance state" beyond all that? Were you married to Mary? Did you have children? Did you actually have 12 female and 12 male disciples? What were the exact thoughts and actions and energies you were working with to allow for the miracles? How can I do that? Was Judas a traitor or was it always part of the greater plan? Did things go exactly as they were supposed to, or did something go awry? Since I don't believe in human sacrifice, I have a hard time believing a loving God would "sacrifice his only begotten sun." (interesting spelling) And I believe we are all sons and daughters of God, so why do they say you were the only one. They say you "died for our sins." I believe "sin" is wrongful thought. Why would someone have to die for that? This makes no sense to me. Some say you and your family fled to France. War and death and torture have become the passion cry of the religion created in your name. What would you say to those people? They say you are the teacher of righteousness - right use of energy. What does that have to do with hellfire and brimstone? How are you different and how are you the same as every other human walking on the planet? And on and on and on . . .
Next I would like to have a conversation with ...
Nicolas Tesla. I don't know that much about him, but I find him intriguing. "What really went down between you and Edison? Why did he fund you for a long time and then pull the plug? What would you say is the most significant and beneficial of your discoveries about energy and other things? How would you continue your work?"
I would love to talk to Original Source Creator about the beginning of the human race. O.K. so Creator is still with us. But I would love to have a conversation that I could actually understand. There is so much confusion about mankind and it's origins. "Here are just a handful of theories about how we got here. Please give us the real deal. Did all of life evolve from pond scum and did we naturally evolve from apes? Are we a laboratory experiment somehow created from the Pleiadians and Sirians or other star races? Did we come up from the inner earth as described by the Hopi? Did God make the whole world in 7 days (and what is a day in God time anyway?). Were humans developed in 1 God-day into our current state? Or, is a God-Day such a long expanse of time from our perspective, that the evolution from pond scum into current day human was one day? Help us understand this please."
You get the idea. Think of who you would talk to and why. Give us your thoughts.
