-It should first be noted I make no claim as to the origin of the following parable. I recall reading it once but cannot remember where. Regardless the lesson is one I couldn’t not share today.
Two men awoke to find themselves presented with two doors. A guard stood between the two and so the first man asked, ‘Where do these doors go’?
The guard gestured to the door on the left. “This door leads to a land where you will be safe and secure, with food and a home. The king is kind, the laws are just”
The first man thought for a moment and then asked, “What about the other door?”
Gesturing to the door on the right the guard replied, “This door leads to a land of chaos and disorder. Choose wisely”
After a moment of deliberation the first man strode towards the door on the left and disappeared into a land of green grass with a castle in the distance. The second man, now alone asked the guard, “What do you mean the right door leads to chaos?”
The guard looked at him quizzically. “How could it lead to anything else? Freedom after all can be a very messy business.”
