Instagram Wisdom

“Be the pond not the fish” was a strange yet effective quote I recently acquired from an Insta post. The fish refers to each of your emotions (feelings), and the pond is you. 

While this wisdom does not appear overly profound, I have found myself repeatedly returning to it over the last couple weeks, anytime I find my emotions running red, and my calm beginning to dissipate…

”Be the pond, not the angry red fish. Be the pond, not the fish. Be the pond, not the fish”...

For some reason this exercise enables my mind’s eye to observe the emotions from the perspective of the pond, rather than through the eyes of the 'emotion-fish'. 

It is amazing how this simple child's meditation can shift perspective, and reinstitute calm.


  • Now that’s a peak ethos.
