A woman dreamt she walked into a brand new shop at the market place. To her surprise, she found God at the counter.
What do you sell here? she asked.
Everything your heart desires, said God.
Hardly daring to believe what she heard, the woman decided to ask for the best things a human could wish for.
I want peace of mind, love and happiness, wisdom and freedom from fear, she said. Then as an afterthought she added, not just for me but for everyone on earth.
God smiled. I think you’ve got me wrong, my dear, he said. We don’t sell fruits here, only seeds.
