The Awakened Fish

“The Awakened Fish wanted to be herself and in becoming herself, she would be unique and in result, would turn her way against the winds.”
The Awakened Fish found herself in the midst of the dry land and since she found herself there with other fishes, she made the dry land into her living place. Dry land's weather was not fit for her- it was either too hot or too cold- But at the end, wherever the fishes make their living, in there, they limit themselves to,
In the dry land, there was only a talk about the sea; the older fishes were saying, upon a day and a time in ancient days, the oceans were their living place and now, the oceans had become only a lost hope and false imagination- But the Awakened Fish was curious and this curiosity, would bother other fishes. The fishes wanted to be like each other and only follow the winds- But the Awakened Fish was searching after the sea and searching is the foundation of finding wonders and a true seeker at the end, is an eternal discoverer.
The Awakened Fish didn't follow the ways of the winds because she would see how the winds would decide and take fishes from one place to the other- all in vain and without purpose- The Awakened Fish wanted to be herself and in becoming herself, she would be unique and in result, would turn her way against the winds. The winds would come to her every now and then to take her with the crowd of fishes but the Awakened Fish continuously had the image of the sea in her soul and with having that image in her mind, she could overcome the temptations.
For turning her image into reality, she needed a power greater than herself- A power that knows the ways of the seas and oceans well and knew all the secrets about them- therefor, she called out loud to the creator of the seas and whoever asks something with all of her heart, shall receive her request sooner or later.
The Awakened Fish found herself again- this time in the midst of the sea. Imagination or Reality- For the Awakened Fish it was a joyous experience- " The Truth for many fishes is like imagination and their imagination seems like Truth" The Awakened Fish thought to herself. In her mind, she prepared places for all the fishes- till one day, they too find the way to the sea, be awakened from their long sleep and say hi once again to the oceans
