The Self-Fish


‘The biggest fish you will ever catch is the “Self-fish.” Hook that fish. Then you can probably have a nice big aquarium. You don’t need to kill the self-fish, just keep it in the aquarium. Show it to others and say “see, this is my fish!” (The Yoga Sutras)

I like looking at my self-fish often. The actions of the ego are hard to catch and important to observe. if you catch your own self-fish, well done!

Here is my fish.

Sometimes I need to realise that where I am is perfectly ok.

I always want to stretch further, be fitter, be healthier.

But that’s my ego.

I am enough.


I am already the destination.
