One Wish


If I had one wish, what would it be?
Do I even know?
What would give me lasting serenity?
If I had one wish, what would it be?
We journey without destination.
Long for what we do not know.
If I had one wish, what would it be?
Do I even know?

    It takes a lifetime to answer that question and even beyond…

    I kept on passing by this intriging picture, and finally said to myself: ‘I gots ta know!’ I would wish to love people, but fear that there is no such thing! Maybe if they were more honest, and less judgemental… But we all know that will never happen. How does one wish for the impossible, and expect it to happen anyway? Great topic BTW!

      What a thoughtful response and good question: How does one wish for the impossible, and expect it to happen anyway?

      The first two viewpoints that came to mind as I read you interesting response are:
      – If, indeed, we are a mind manifesting our reality as quantum physics suggests, then wishing for the impossible makes sense. According to this idea, we influence what happens in our environment by how we think about it. Thus, a person who is loving and honest, will send that energy out and attract like energy, i.e., other people who are loving and honest. That is not to say that unkind and dishonest people will not exist, but rather the loving, honest people are more likely to be attracted to each other.
      – The second way that one can wish for the impossible and expect it to happen is by believing in some Higher Loving Source who can manifest anything, an unlimited Creator. When we believe this Force exists, we have what is called, “faith” i.e., belief that is not based on proof. I can personally tell you many stories of time when the “impossible,” came…just when I needed it most. I choose to believe in this Higher Power, whom I call “Creator, Source, God, Allah, Force, etc.” because my life is more peaceful, abundant, and interesting than when I did not.

        Dear Darling One; How did you get so wise huh? You make people pick up their Bibles! According to Heb. 11:1 ‘Faith is the assured expectation of what is hoped for,+ the evident demonstration* of realities that are not seen.’ I was a Jehovah’s Witness. They used to be called ‘Bible Students’ because they know the Bible so well! Too bad they don’t put it into practice… Anyway, they have a great site for grabbing quotes from the Bible and much more:
        You surprised me that you used quantum mechanics as a rhelm where impossibilities become possible! Lets move to the other end of the scale shall we? When a star dies, it releases all the elements that made us. We are literally composed of star dust. Yes? So if the stars made us, how could God have done so? We can look back to the very beginning of the universe within every possible spectrum of light, and we haven’t found hide nor hair of the man? LOL! Add to this, if he is perfect, how on earth did he create such an imperfect being as us? All through life, we find that everything we’re told is a lie. Yet I’m supposed to believe what sounds like the biggest wopper of all! And since time did not exist before the beginning of the universe, how could God have existed to make the thing? Since organised religion could never answer me, and I have caught them in mistakes like: ‘God will not create life anywhere else until He perfects us!’ Yet now we know there are, as a conservative estimate, 33 billion Earth like planets in our galaxy alone (not including exo-moons), any one of which, an advanced being with what we’d call supernatural powers could have emmerged from… And since a star moved across the sky, and then hovered over a manger, it’s hard not to think: ‘Space-craft’ And since Religion has zip for answers, I’m inclined to have questions. I do NOT deny that God exists. I simply feel that He talks to us in ways that people could understand 2000 years ago. Yet by expanding an element of mystery to His nature, He looks larger and more powerful than us. He says we can’t see Him because He’s a spirit, yet if He made us in his image, as having a spiritual nature as well, then why not? And since we are now on the verge of being able to greatly extend our own lives, and learning more every day about how to improve our own way of life, why do we need Him? I know… Just saying this stuff makes me feel like The Anti-Christ, but these are very pertinant questions to me! In fact, I may copy this as a blog, and just see who has the answers… What say you Pat?

        Sometimes when the questions get too big or two scary, I just go outside, pee in the dirt and play in my sandbox. Wonder if that is called “faith.” 🙂 hugs, pat


  4. A million more wishes! (I know that’s cheating!)
