I just read another wonderful metaphor from Mitch Albom’s “have a little faith”.
The difference between heaven & hell:
One day a man was shown heaven and hell.
In hell, people sat around a banquet table, full of exquisite meats and delicacies. But their arms were locked in front of them, unable to partake for eternity.
“This is terrible,” the man said. “Show me heaven.”
He was taken to another room, which looked remarkably the same. Another banquet table, more meats and delicacies. The souls there also had their arms out in front of them.
The difference was, they were feeding each other.Â
