There is a short, very short story about Heaven and Hell.
We are told it’s a myth.
Both destinations are depicted in a picture.
Both are set in large rooms with banqueting tables.
Each table is laden with delicious food and every diner has 5 foot long chop sticks.
In hell, they are trying to feed themselves, with no success. They are starving and in the agony of deprivation.
In heaven, they are feeding someone else across the table, with no guarantee that they will in turn, be fed.
A COMTEMPLATION FOR YOU
Are you feeding anyone across the way from you love, attention, kindness, gentleness or peace?
Do you fear you will give and not receive back enough in return?
Or do you find yourself too afraid to be that vulnerable?
Are we creating our own experience of hell by trying desperately to feed all our insecurities, only to find ourselves starving and in want?
In the Grace of the Moment
Thank you to Andrew Corbett for the picture for today.
