hat am I fishing for…?
The moments…
S. O.

Fishing is similar to the search for the truth. The same way we throw our line of intention into an ocean of thought, and the same way we never are able to tell with confidence whether we are going to catch something or not.

And as an experienced fisherman, each of as has to possess the three qualities: an intention, attention, and patience.

Only then will we be able to attract from the bottomless depths a long-desired fish - a thought. And if we are rreproachable, our reward will be a prized catch - wisdom and knowledge.
