In my recent wandering around the universe, I bumped into a minor god who was sort of standing’- levitating beside a large heap of nice vibrating mass of energy but the god looked terribly bored stiff.
Looking at him I was wondering why was he so bored and why was he standing there beside that heap of something?
So I figured might as well find out his reason for looking so sour, down on the mouth and since at a moment I had nothing better to do, place to rush off in the hurry and I was really curious what is that lovely heap of vibrating could be representing and why was he standing beside it.
So I greeted him: Hi there good god…
He looked through me and said: greetings human..
Now, I realized I pegged him right that this god was really minor-uneducated because he did not know if I was a human, I could not see him, talk to him and know what he was saying, and I would not be floating about….but I let that ride, not much point making him wrong, no gain in that.
I inquired : what is that heap you are standing beside?
Oh, he said: Willpower.
Willpower, wow I though, now that is fantastic I would not mind having some.
I asked: are you selling the stuff?
Oh… no…said he, I want to give it away but no one wants it, few have come by and one taken some but brought it back, he said it is not working has to be defected…LOL… I laughed, silently of course … LOL.. now that is funny!
He continued: than small group come by they talked it over but decided against but before they left explaining it to me, if someone has willpower, than has to take responsibility for their action and they were not about to do something like that, it was not in their bag start some stupid fad that way, no, they did not want anything to do with willpower.
The poor god poured out rest of his unhappy story, he said; two others come and they had sniff and taste but they did not say a thing just left, they did not even bother to say good bye!
Here I was thinking… this good god was lucky that they were humans or some other breed because if this taster were dogs more likely they would have peed on pile before they left.
He continued: I really would like to get rid of this heap here because six galaxies away there is someone giving lessons in square dancing and I want go and learn… you see, she gives discount on the lessons now because it is a slow season.
I laughed I could not help myself since this made total sense to me after all I thought: every god should know how to square dance, but I just said: since you are giving it away I would not mind having some of this Willpower, will you give me some?
He noticeably perked up and asked: how much you want? Well, I said ‘’ I take it all’’, thinking: I had nothing to lose by having it.
As he looked at me measured me up and he wrinkled his godly eyebrows: That is a lot of willpower here, he said, are you sure you want it all? can you handle it? I just have to tell you I don’t have a manual, it got rotted away by the passing of time. Sure you want it?
Sure I am sure : I answered, I figured what I don’t want I will sell on E-bay.
Well, to make this story sort, here I am stuck with a large load of willpower…love the stuff.
And now because humans don’t have any of this commodity therefore many of you can go on selling ideas and make a good living offering courses that teaches: yes: you can do it!
