Perfect Freedom


When a fish swims, it swims on and on,

and there is no end to the water.

Whens a bird flies, it flies on and on,

and there is no end to the sky.

There was never a fish that ran out of water,

or a bird that ran out of sky.

When they need a little water or sky,

they use just a little; when they need a lot,

they use a lot.

Thus they use all of it at every moment,

and in every place they have

perfect freedom.
