A holy man was having a conversation with the Lord one day and asked him what Heaven and Hell were like. The Lord showed the holy man two doors. He opened one of the doors for the holy man to look inside.

He saw a large round table in the middle of the room with a large pot of stew in its center, which smelled delicious. The holy man’s mouth started watering.

However, the people sitting around the table were thin and sickly, and appeared famished. Spoons with long handles were strapped to their arms. While they could reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful, the handle was longer than their arms. Hence, it was impossible for them to get the spoons back into their mouths. The holy man was shaken at this sight of misery and suffering. The Lord said, ‘This is Hell.’

They moved to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same as the first one. There was a large round table with a large pot of stew which made the holy man’s mouth water. The people there too had the same long-handled spoons strapped to their arms, but they were all well-nourished and plump, laughing and talking.

The holy could not understand. The Lord said, that the people in this room have learned to feed one another.
