Consider yourself like a fish, swimming in the heart of the ocean, searching for water… you think haven’t found it because you don’t swim fast enough, or strong enough, or like the fishes of old; or that your lazy eye, your broken scale, your weak fin is the reason. When, in fact, nothing can hold you back!
A fish swims in the ocean, and no matter how far it swims there is no end to the water. A bird flies in the sky, and no matter how far it flies there is no end to the air. However, the fish and the bird have never left their elements. – Dogen
