PGoTh: quote J Said, "A wise fisherman cast his net into the sea. When he drew it up it was full of little fish. Among them he discovered a large, fine fish. He threw all the little fish back into the sea, and he chose the large fish. Anyone here with two good ears should listen." unquote
Form: The Pursah version makes it more individual, more personal, which reminds me of the Course addressing us as "You."
Content: The statement reminds us of the words that we find in the synoptics where J tells the apostles (his Course students avant la lettre), to follow him and that he will teach them to become fishers of men. Also the loaves and the fishes come to mind, another parable to do with the unlimited, infinite nature of spiritual nourishment, as opposed to the crumbs that the world offers.
Thus in the forms we meet in that great river of life, there are many that speak to us of the ego's scarcity, and one (j) who speaks to us of the abundance of spirit, and clearly if we are wise, we should choose that one.
