Yes, this is a goddess.
But you won't.
This blog is about the many things I find lovely and inspirational in life - whether it be music, random thoughts or my passion for Motown. Inspired by Michelangelo's quote: "My soul can find no staircase to heaven unless it be through earth's loveliness."
Heaven and hell are shown to a man. 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," says the man. "Show me heaven now."
He was taken to another room, where things looked remarkably the same. Another banquet table, more of the same meats and delicacies. The souls there also had their arms in front of them. The difference was they were feeding each other.
I enjoy this story because it translates across all religious denominations and teaches us two lessons I believe we should think about each day: 1.) treat others how you want to be treated and 2.) you help yourself when you help others.
