Fish in a Bowl

A fish born in a bowl has no idea what the ocean’s depth is. It lives as if the bowl is the ocean. The bottom of the bowl is reached even before the wake disappears.

It’s is not in the ability of the fish to go exploring for the ocean, but it is indeed in our ability as a human to go exploring for our origin.

Are you following an idea, a religion, a culture, a society because you were born into it? Are you being a fish in a bowl?

“My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.”    – Mawlana Jalal-al-din Rumi
