unfish

There seem to be two kinds of searchers:
those who seek to make their ego something
other than it is, i.e. holy, happy, unselfish
(as though you could make a fish unfish),
and those who understand that all such
attempts are just gesticulation and play-acting,
that there is only one thing that can be done,
which is to disidentify themselves with the ego,
by realising its unreality, and by becoming aware
of their eternal identity with pure being.
