The Parable of the Spoons
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 make 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 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 the 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 see they have learned to feed each other. While the greedy think only of themselves."
"A friend is someone who reaches for your hand, and touches your heart."
The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender, because the kiss already has within it that surrender!

There are times when people disappoint you and let you down,but those are the times when you must remind yourself to trust your own judgements and opinions,and to keep your life focusedon believing in yourself and all that you are capable of. There will be challenges to face and changes to make in your life,and it is up to you to accept them. Constantly keep yourself headed in the right directions for you. It may not be easy at times,but in those times of struggle you will find a stronger sense of who you are,and you will see yourself developing into the person you always wanted to be. Life is a journey throught ime,filled with many choices;each of us will experience life in our own special way. So when the days come that are filled with frustration and unexpected responsibilities;remember to believe in yourself and all you want your life to be because the challenges and the changes will only help you to find the dreams that you know are meant to come true for you.
