I have thought long and hard about this question because there are so many people both living and dead that inspire me from Plato and Socrates to Jesus, The Buddha and Lord Shiva to Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Mother Theresa, Winston Churchill, Confucius, Lao Tzu, Enzo Ferrari, Oprah, Amma, Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Paulo Coelho, Pema Chödrön….etc, the list could go on and on…then I came up with my choice
If I could bring him down from heaven and sit on that bench and chat with him again for one full hour, wow! That would be amazing 🙂 My list of questions would be endless, all the things I wish I had asked him but never did, how is the life now, what is he doing, what is he experiencing, advice for me on my journey etc
Who would you choose and why?
Namaste with Love
The decision would be so very difficult to make! So many loving, beautiful people have already passed away before me, and many wonderful, inspirational people are alive today! The only decision that would clear up the difficulties in making this decision would be to sit and talk with God…. but then again, we all can do this in whatever form we want, every day! Call it prayer, meditation, contemplation, or positive thinking. We can be bench-sitters at will!
Nice reflection Kelly, yes we can do this with anyone who has passed on 🙂
Definitely my daughter.. she was killed when she was 10.. she would be turning 30 next year.. I’d love to talk to the adult that I never got the chance to know.. One more hug.. One more kiss.. One more moment in time.
Blessings and love Livonne to you and your daughter, keep her close to your heart my friend.
My grandfather…he died when I was two. I would love to sit and speak with the man who helped mold my father into the wonderful man he is. I have heard my grandfather was so gentle and kind. I would love the opportunity to ask about his life, how he fell in love with my grandmother (who I miss terribly), and what my dad was like as a child… from his perspective. I would love the opportunity to share with him about his five year old grandson. It would be wonderful to have an opportunity to sit and speak with the man I never really knew.
That would be fantastic fortygirl, and sure your grandfather would be extremely proud of you and your grandson 🙂 I always talk to my grandparents and parents via my dreams and prayers and give them thanks each day for bringing my parents and therefore me into this world 🙂
Take care my friend and thank you for your reply to my post 🙂
Excellent choice only it would be my mother.
Perfect choice my friend 🙂
My inner child, to let her know how strong and couragous she was and that she was a valuable, worthy person.
I like this choice starrystez 🙂
I would give anything to talk to my dear mother who passed away 7 years ago. Love Jenna
Im with you on that wish Jenna 🙂
I would like to talk to my grandfather. He died when I was 13. I loved him very much. I still miss him everyday and more so on special occasions like my wedding or the birth of our son. But most of all I miss never having the chance to talk with him as a grown up person. I would have like to talk to him about a meriad of things in life as he was very wise.
My heart is with you Virginie 🙂
I would want to talk to the dead me to see what I could or should change before I die.
Cool, I like that idea Jane
I would love to sit on this bench with Queen Vashti (predecessor to Queen Esther). I think I could learn a lot from her.
She was a strong Queen 🙂
I would love to talk with Spirit and find out how I can work with them to make our world the place it truly can be.
Go do it Susan, open up to them each and every day 🙂
Namaste with Love
I would choose Dalai Lama, the wisdom and compassion have me in awe 🙂 Namaste
Always a top choice for me Cicci 🙂
