Long Spoon Allegory

December 6, 2011 , , , ,

Heard this allegory on the latest ep of Boardwalk Empire and it got me buzzing.

A man once was invited to visit both heaven and hell.  First he went to hell where all the tormented souls were sitting at tables laden with food; yet they were starving, howling with hunger.   Each soul had a spoon but the spoons were so long that they couldn’t get them into their mouths.  Their frustration was their torment.  In heaven, to his amazement, the man found the souls of the blessed sitting at similar tables laden with food but they were all fed and contented. Each had a spoon and they were just as long as the spoons in hell but they were able to eat all they needed because they were feeding each other.
