It’s Inside You!

This wonderful fable is contributed by a friend of The Zoo Fence
who read it in a magazine, possibly Life, while traveling on an airplane.

One Fine Day, the Creator gathered all of creation together, and said, “I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it.”

“What is it?” asked the eagle.

“It is the realization that they create their own reality,” the Creator explained.

The eagle said, “Give it to me. I will take it to the moon.”

The Creator replied, “No, one day they will go there, and find it.”

The salmon offered, “I will hide it at the bottom of the ocean.”

The Creator responded, “No, they will go there, too.”

The buffalo suggested, “I will bury it on the great plains.”

The Creator answered, “They will cut into the skin of the earth, and find it even there.”

Finally, Grandmother Mole, who is almost blind, and lives in the breast of Mother Earth, said, “Put it inside them.”

The Creator said, “It is done.”
