Bhagavad Gita for a Fish.

Gita for a Fish

Let’s say you are a fish
Swimming in the sea.

Only you’re a very very smart fish,
Smart enough to realize
That being a fish swimming in the sea
Isn’t all there is.

You can see that you’re part of
A vast unknown ocean.

You can see there are many other creatures
And countless wondrous things
To learn about and enjoy
In this vast unknown ocean.

You can even imagine
That there may be a vast unknown world
Beyond even the vast unknown ocean.

You can also see
How wondrous and amazing it is
To be a fish,
To revel in all the unfathomable workings
Of your amazing fish body
And your amazing fish mind.
And how amazing it is
To simply be able to swim around
In this vast unfathomable ocean.

You can’t ever fully figure out
The vast reality
Beyond your little fish world,
The vast unknown ocean
And the vast unknown world
Beyond the vast unknown ocean.

You can’t ever really figure out
The incredible workings
Of your little fish body
And your billions of little fish cells
And your amazing fish mind.

But you can swim
In continual awe and wonder
At the vast unknown ocean
And the vast unknown world
Beyond the vast unknown ocean

And you can be in continual amazement
At the incredible workings
Of your little fish body
And your billions of little fish cells
And the wonders
Of all the other creatures and things
You see all around you as you swim.

You can think about it.
You can meditate on it.
You can love and celebrate it.

And meanwhile you can settle in
To simply being the best fish you can be.
