Like a Fish Out of Water

If we asked a fish to explain the water; what would it say? What would its interpretation of its environment be? There are many factors that could influence its daily existence. Conditioning could in fact keep it away from its principle food source, restrict it to an isolated area or cause it to enter a place it has no business being. What it perceives as safe or dangerous, easy or difficult either shallow or deep will have a huge influence on how it interprets its environment.

I’m sure we have all heard the expression “Like as fish out of water” and immediately understood the meaning. Many times it is the misunderstanding of our own environment that puts us into a situation in which we feel this way. We are unsure, uncomfortable and insecure with our Being. Only by understanding the environment can we truly move efficiently through it “as a fish through water”.
