#WorldofSymbolism . . . drifting boats,




In a river mist,
if another boat knocks against yours,
you might yell at the other fellow to stay clear.

But if you notice then,
that it’s an empty boat,
adrift with nobody aboard,
you stop yelling.

When you discover
that all the others are drifting boats,
there’s no one to yell at.

And when you find out you are an empty boat,
there’s no one to yell.

– Chuang-Tzu
