Frog or Fish: How Much Do You want it?
There are three frogs sitting on a lily pad.
One decides to jump in the water.
How many are on the lily pad?
(The one decided to jump in the water – we don’t know that it did actually jump.)
Knowing you should do something isn’t the same as committing to doing it.
The fish, having had some realization, must now commit to doing something or face certain death.
Are you the frog who has decided to do something (but actually doesn’t)?
Or are you the fish and Plato who realize that something must be done?
Think about your life.
Where are the points where you are the frog and not the fish?
Many people know that their spiritual life needs tending to.
But, like the frog, they have decided to take action without actually doing so.
Perhaps, with regard to your spiritual life, you feel like the fish or Plato.
Maybe you feel that tending to your spiritual life is a matter of life and death.
Probably, you are somewhere in between.
