This man died and was brought to a place which was really quite good. He was hungry and a little guy came in and gave him something to eat. He was thirsty, a little guy came in and gave him something to drink. He was tired, a little guy came in, pressed a button and a bed came out of the wall. He lay down and went to sleep. Anything he thought he wanted, he got it; he half wanted it, he was given it; he wished for it and it was offered to him. This went on and eventually he stopped this young lad and he said, ‘Excuse me! Can you do without anything here?’ and the lad said, ‘Oh, no, no, no!’ ‘Even things you only half want or don’t really want?’ ‘Oh, no, no, no!’ he said, ‘you have to have them.’ And the man said, ‘I mean, is this going to go on for all eternity?’ ‘Oh, yes. Yes, it is.’ And he said, ‘Ah, Lord, I’d be better off in hell!’ And the little guy said, ‘And where do you think you are?’

Quite often hell, for some people on this earth, is that they have too much and therefore they lose what is most precious in life – a sense of appreciation and a sense of gratitude for what they have.
