A man dies and finds himself in a beautiful place. He is greeted by a gracious attendant who explains that the man can have anything he wants. Every comfort, food, physical pleasure, entertainment is available to him at anytime. 

The man is delighted for days. Indulging in every pleasure old and new. After a time he become bored with nothing to look forward to. He asks the attendant for some work, but is told there is no work here. The man says, I MAY JUST AS WELL BE IN HELL ! The attendant replies, WHERE DO YOU THINK YOU ARE ?

THE MORAL: Stagnation, what becomes of the person that pursues pleasure and comfort. It is also an example of the need to engage in meaningful activity so life will be more fulfilling.
