We all wish we could have a genie who would grant us three wishes. Then, all our problems in life would be solved. We would have a lot of money, name, fame, superpowers, and we could become all that we want. A spiritual person would wish to get all that Buddha had attained. Yet, inside, he would always know he did not earn it. That fun is different. If you become a billionaire, there will be no memories of the journey. Even lottery winners go through depression. If I had three wishes, what would they be? First, let me have permanent gratitude for all that has been given to me, including the three wishes. Second, I wish the whole world would be vegetarian, yet, that would not please me, as it did not happen with free will. My third wish would be to please remove the desire for the fourth wish. We have so many wishes that three is not enough. So, having three wishes will not fulfill my life. Thank God I am not put to the test. — Satish Daryanani
