Finding Himself

A man set off on a long pilgrimage to find himself…he devoted many years to his search but they were unsuccessful and he had almost decided to stop his search…one day while traveling through some non-descript area, he came to a river...while crossing the river, the boat lurched and the man was thrown overboard…as hard as he tried, he drifted farther and farther from the boat until he could not see it anymore…he was certain he would drown…the man managed to stay afloat and he found a big rock he could hang on to…then, he noticed something floating towards him…as it got closer, he realized that it was the corpse of a person…when it drifted so close that he could almost touch it, he suddenly recognized the dead body - it was his own…! He lost all control and wailed at the sight of himself, still and lifeless, drifting along the river's currents. That moment was the beginning of his liberation…he suddenly calmed himself and made his way to the safety of the shore, where he now felt at peace and fulfilled…he had finally found himself, and then let himself go.
