Heaven’s Entrance|ورودی بهشت

A man was riding on his horse and his dog was following them. The weather was cloudy and getting darker.

Suddenly, a loud thunder stroked and killed the man, his horse and dog.

The man didn’t notice that he died and continued riding with his two animals. The dark sky had turned into a beautiful blue one and stunning hills were along their way.

They all were getting tired and thirsty. On the way, he saw a huge gold-gated entrance with a golden floor and a beautiful fountain in the middle.

He looked at the guard and asked: “What is this beautiful place?”

The guard replied: “It’s heaven.”

He said: “Oh thank God, we are thirsty and tired.”

The guard said: “You can get in and drink water but I am very sorry, your dog and horse aren’t allowed to enter.”

He got very disappointed and said: “I would never drink water when I know my horse and dog are as thirsty as I am.”

He continued to walk elsewhere with his precious animals.

After a while, they got to a farm with old entrance with a dirt path full of trees on both sides of the road.

He saw a man sleeping under a tree and his face was covered with a hat.

The rider asked politely: “Good day sir.  We are very thirsty, is there any water for me and my horse and dog?”

The man replied: “There is a fountain between those stones. Feel free to drink as much as you and your animals want.”

They drank water and came to thank the man.

The rider asked: “What is this place named?”

The man said: “Heaven.”

He said: “But there was a huge golden gate. They said it was heaven!!!”

The man replied: “That was hell.”

He said: “But they are abusing heaven’s name!”

The man said: “No, they are helping us realize those who care about animals and all creatures, and send them directly to the heaven.”

“Paulo Coelho”

  1. Very sweet fable. I agree, that a heaven that does not accept animals is not really a heaven.

  17. Wonderful!
    The way you distinguished between heaven & hell is amazing.
    Hell is for fulfilling your immidiate desires that makes you selfish. But heaven ask to you Walk on a just path and carrying each specie with you.

  19. It certainly shows your true character in a situation like that if you truly care for man and animals, or whether selfish desires will override. x
