Ever think about what you would ask if you could ask just one question of “God,” your higher power, your spirit guides, an angel or even your own immortal soul? The main thing to remember is there wouldn’t be any question too difficult to ask. You’d be certain to get a definitive answer. You would surely be told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but. If you knew that, and you were asking your God, or another higher intelligence what would you ask?
I often think how great it would be to have access to the answers to the so-called unanswerable questions, like why are we here? What is the purpose of our lives? What is most important? And, if I was feeling brave, how am I doing?
But then, when I trick myself into actually believing in the prospect of being in such a position, I find I lose my nerve. I do. As hard as it might be to imagine me silent, it’s true. Faced with the ultimate Answer Man, given access to the giver of the Final Word, I find I stand before them mute. I can’t decide what question I ought to ask! I mean, I only get one.
What should I ask? What would you ask if it was you?
