The poet Kabir has an outstanding line:
The fish in the water is thirsty, and every time I see that, it makes me laugh!
What does this mean?
Well, we are the fish!
Aren’t we always wanting something or the other? What we have, never seems to be enough. There are people who would do 2x our work at 1/10th the salary. And still we are unhappy and want more. Compared to the poor and destitute, we are nothing but kings and queens!
Yet we are thirsty for more. We have all the water around us, yet not a drop to drink will quench this thirst ?
Is there anything that can quench this thirst? Yes there is, and you know all about it already. It is called gratitude.
