If like old King Solomon
The Lord gave me the task
Of finding what I want from him
For these three gifts I'll ask
I'll ask for : Faith, Hope and Charity....
This is the song we used to sing during Masses.
Today, if the Lord were to give me the task of finding what I wanted from him, surely I know what I'll ask for : A Finger of Illusion to create a Police car!
As the song goes further: Faith, hope and charity to strengthen me,...to set me free... to meet the Lord.....
All are for "me". But I ask for a finger of illusion not for myself but for others ... in actual fact, to save lives.
If I were on the highway that night with the speeding bus that crashed on 10-10-10, I would point my Finger of Illusion at the speeding bus, and the bus driver would see a Police car trailing behind, he would have slow down and drive with extra care and caution. Accident can be avoided.
Every day, I travel more than 120 kms to and from work. I see many reckless lorry and bus drivers swerving in and out of lanes causing other drivers to brake. Sometimes heavy vehicles hogging on the fast lanes ... many are speeding and overtaking in dangerous manner.
I just point my Finger of Illusion at these lorries and buses, immediately the drivers would see in their rear view mirrors the presence of a police car behind...
Just like rats seeing cats in the cartoon, they will behave.
Motorcyclists beating traffic lights are common occurrence in every traffic junction. I just point my Finger of Illusion at them, they see the presence of a Police car, they will behave!
To make thing easy, I point my Finger of Illusion at my own car... presto!! it turns into a Police patrol car. It will deter snatch thieves, robbers from committing crime.
Many lives saved!
Many a times, I raised my finger angrily at drivers overtaking me dangerously, or cutting into my lane ..... Do I have the illusion that me really possessed a Finger of Illusion ...
Am I dreaming? Am I crazy ? Am I disillusioned?
