Who Has Authority To Wish For Everyone? Jan 31st. at 2:39:26 pm UTC

Threnody (Dallas, TX) Age: 18 - Email

Hi, I have many personal wishes that i feel would be good for all human kind. However, I would rather give three totally unbiased wishes that everyone could agree upon. 1.) I would that people were raised more opennly and less confined by their parents views and morals, so that each child could achieve wisdom sooner, instead of spending their lives questioning what their parents taught them. 2.) Intolerance is so unbearable, but it is what we have to work with. Many people would wish it away, but I would only wish that everyone could here this Truth: acceptance doesn't mean you have to like it. Don't try to abolish one another; instead, be at peace, and allow each to live in their own right. 3.) This is partially selfish, but everyone would have what i want most. If there is such a thing as Avalon, and the world of Faerie, and all of the old stories are true, i would that I could see them or have some hard evidence of their existence. I know that seems silly, but it has been a driving force in my path toward Truth. Blessed be, and thank you all for being.

Melissa Jo-Anne (British Columbia) Age: 15 - Email - Web

Well to start it all off, I guess I would wish for..... Money! but not just any money, I don't want my money from a loved one's passing or in some sort of illegal way. I want to earn my money with a happy and loving manner (without doing someting 'bad' to get it) . My second wish would be, being in a deep long lasting love with the perfect guy...But, I don't want my boyfriend to be abusive or meen or a cheating lying scumbag. I want him to be in as much love with me as I am with him. And for the relationship to last. My third wish would be.... to live a happy life. With the less agony and pain that one could possibly get in a lifetime. But, in order for me to be happ I would have to have all the ones that I love and care for happy to, not just me. And thats about all that I would wish for. Thanks for asking. Peace, much love to all who read this. Link to More info related to this post -- HERE

More Wishes.... Jan 31st. at 10:12:45 pm UTC

Kali (NJ) Age: 24 - Email - Web

Honestly, that is what I would probably wish for. There is so much I would want to do, or perhaps even just want that it is difficult to decide. But here is my reply, to answer the questions itself.

1. To know the Goddess fully.

I often doubt my path and choices. I do not think of this as reassurance, but an afirmation that I am not just paying lip service to the Goddess or God.

2. World peace

Yes, cliche. Or perhaps not. I have to wonder, if we did ever achieve world peace..... would it last...

3. To love.

I think if we could all learn to love, it would help with the world peace. To know and love ourselves would allow us to know and love others more openly, and perhaps without fear.



Both Personal And Worldly? Jan 31st. at 11:05:03 pm UTC

Kristen (Bay Area, California) Age: 22 - Email

I have the tendency to have difficult in choosing a set amount of things, hence the two sets of lists here ;)

1. For those I love to be happy, with themselves and their lives.
2. Money to live comfortably.
3. To be able to fold the country in half or rearrange the states, so I can be closer to my family.

Worldly (for lack of a better word) :
1. Tolerance and acceptance.
2. No more hunger.
3. World peace, though I think if the first one were to come true, this wouldn't be too far behind.
