This story is a part of Silvia Hartman’s Project Sanctuary Masters course assignment of stepping in and changing the “Evil Wish story”.
In the history of humankind, there are stories that strengthen the old “evil wish warning” idea that wishing is wrong, evil, or brings a curse. One such story is about King Midas who wished for a gift from the God Dionysus that whatever he touched should turn into gold. That proved disastrous.
To explore the truth behind the ancient story of Kind Midas I had to meet the original characters.
In my Sanctuary I invited Dionysus to ask him about the story, and this is what he said:
(Y): Is the story true?
(D): Yes, this story took place many ages back however it happened slightly differently.
You see, despite being a “God” I am not allowed to interfere with the laws of the physical plane so I could not grant the wish King asked for in its exact form yet I could not refuse it.
I granted him his wish on the astral plane. In this way, I honored my word while allowing him to learn a lesson about making wishes.
On the astral level, I recreated his palace and everything in it exactly as it was on the physical plane. Then I granted him the power to turn everything he touches into gold so he can put it to the test.
Very soon he realized that he did not use his wisdom while asking for this gift.
Moreover, he realized that living forms are more precious than gold – a flower or life-giving water cannot be created by an artisan or a scientist, and no gold in the world is worth the life of his child.
When he understood the thoughtlessness behind his wish, he took his words back.
After this experience, he became much wiser.
(Y): This story seems to carry a message that asking God to fulfill your wishes and desires brings about dangerous consequences.
(D): You now know what really happened. King had his wish fulfilled and at the same time, he learned a valuable lesson and gained wisdom – all in the safe environment of the astral plane.
If fact, if you ask him about this story, he would tell you that this was a dream he saw one night and this dream has cured him forever of his obsessive love for gold.
The faculty of desiring and wishing in humans is God-given, however, since it is a very powerful force – because it is directly related to the force that unfolds the Creation, there are safety mechanisms in-built on every level.
The long delay between human thought and its manifestation on the physical plane is one such safety mechanism and it is designed to protect human beings with primitive minds from destroying themselves, other people, and the environment.
When the mind and emotions become more refined and under the control of the soul, the thought is able to reach higher and higher planes where its manifestation is fast or instantaneous.
Thus wanting something and receiving it – is a learning process for human beings and it is made safe by adjusting the power to manifest things according to the level of consciousness.
Just imagine, if people had no desires, there would be no expansion of their understanding of the world, no learning, no growth, and no evolution.
So, by all means, when you read such stories, look into their root, or, if it is abstruse for you, ask the concerned beings for clarification.
