There once was a boy who asked God for many things.
God said, “you’ll have everything you desire, but it won’t happen the way you expect it to.”
“What do you mean?” the boy asked.
“You don’t fully know what you want. Many of the things you think are good for you, aren’t. And many of the things you think aren’t good for you, are actually what you need most. Also, it won’t all happen in this life. There is another life that awaits you, where what you desire will be fully realized in its true form. What you truly seek will remain formless and nameless in your current life. One day you’ll understand what this all means.”
