> A holy man was having a conversation with the Lord one day and said,
> "Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like."
> The Lord led the holy man to two doors.
> He opened one of the doors and the holy man looked in. In the middle of
> the room was a large round table. In the middle of the table was a
> large pot of stew, which smelled delicious and made the holy man's
> mouth water.
> The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly. They appeared
> to be famished. They were holding spoons with very long handles that
> were strapped to their arms and each found it possible to reach into
> the pot of stew and take a spoonful.
> But because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get
> th e spoons back into their mouths.
> The holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering.
> The Lord said, "You have seen Hell."
> They went to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same
> as the first one. There was the large round table with the large pot of
> stew which made the holy man's mouth water. The people were equipped
> with the same long-handled spoons, but here
> the people were well nourished and plump, laughing and talking. The
> holy man said, "I don't understand."
> It is simple," said the Lord.
> "It requires but one skill. You se e they have learned to feed each
> other, while the greedy think only of themselves."
