me: I've got a person in my life that I have been trying to eliminate and I don't seem to be able to accomplish this task, will you please help me?
God: Of course, describe this person for me.
me: He is 100% phony, rude, obnoxious, narcissistic, has no integrity or empathy, his actions never match his words, a control freak, unable to follow through with anything.
God: That's quite a list of character traits rolled up in one person. Is there anything positive you can add?
me: I'm thinking...
God: There are times that I put others on your path specifically to act as a mirror for you to see how far you have come on your journey. It looks to me as if this particular soul reflects my best piece of work, and by the way, yours too.
me:So what do you suggest I do now?
God: Dump him you have no further need of his assistance in this life. Just between you and me I'll see if I can clean up his soul in case you two are scheduled to meet again in the future.
me: Thank you for your enlightenment and have a great day!
