Pick some guru or entity and tell us what you would say to them or ask of them.

I would ask any of them if there's anything I need to know, in their opinion. And try to listen with an open mind.

I'm not sure I would ask them anything.

Maybe just "why?"

I'd probably get bakc something like,
"Why not?", though

Maybe I'd just hang with them for a bit (tyr to get by any kind fo celebrity worshi stuff..that is superficial..people are people, even those kinds of people) I would maybe try to make some kind of geniune connection and then go on my merry way.

I wouldn't go out of my way, though, as I am sure thye have to deal with people wanting to get close with them all the time.

To be honest, I'd probably try to avoid them.

Once when I was about 10 years old I was at home, alone, playing video games. I remember it quite well, I had slipped into a state of semi-consciousness where my subconscious mind was playing the (repetitive) game while my conscious mind was completely adrift.

Then out of nowhere, directly behind me, I heard a loud male voice say, "WHY!?"

It scared the hell out of me. I whipped around and no one was there. The voice was totally audible as if a person was standing there and I can even remember the exact direction it came from.

Anyway, obviously this is something not easily forgotten and I'll never forget it. But the only interesting thing about it, other than the fact that it happened, is that is the VERY question that has bugged me my entire life.

Bionic I would ask Jesus that very thing! Why.

I have had similar stuff happen to your "why" voice

Jesus himself..looked to his God and asked, "Why?" just before he died

Goodness sakes I have no idea. Laugh

All that comes to mind, is I'd like to say thank you to Jesus in more
ways than I know how to right now.

Thank him for what, if anything besides the obvious (dying for us, etc.)?

Of course, I'm curious about many things like what exactly did his alleged crucifixion accomplish.

Why did you make the clitoris so hard to get to?
