excerpt from Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach

  1. And he said unto them,
    “within each of us lies the
    power of our consent to health
    and to sickness, to riches
    and to poverty, to freedom
    and to slavery.  It is we
    who control these, and
    and not another.”
  2. A mill-man spoke and said,
    “Easy words for you, Master,
    for you are guided as we
    are not, and need not toil
    as we toil.  A man has to
    work for his living in
    this world.”
  3. The Master answered and said,
    “Once there lived a village
    of creatures along the bottom
    of a great crystal river.
  4. “The current of the river
    swept silently over them
    all—young and old, rich
    and poor, good and evil,
    the current going its own
    way, knowing only its own
    crystal self.
  5. “Each creature in its own
    manner clung tightly to the
    twigs and rocks of the river
    bottom, for clinging was their
    way of life, and resisting
    the current what each had
    learned from birth.
  6. “But one creature said at
    last, ‘I am tired of clinging.
    Though I cannot see it
    with my eyes, I trust that
    the current knows where it is
    going.  I shall let go, and
    let it take me where it
    will.  Clinging, I shall die
    of boredom.’
  7. “The other creatures laughed and
    said, ‘Fool! Let go, and that
    current you worship will throw
    you tumbled and smashed
    across the rocks, and you
    will die quicker than boredom!’
  8. “But the one heeded them
    not, and taking a breath
    did let go, and at once
    was tumbled and smashed by
    the current across the rocks.
  9. “Yet in time, as the creature
    refused to cling again, the
    current lifted him free from
    the bottom, and he was bruised
    and hurt no more.
  10. “And the creatures downstream, to
    whom he was a stranger,
    cried, ‘See a miracle!  A creature
    like ourselves, yet he flies!
    See the Messiah, come to save
    us all!’
  11. “And the one carried in
    the current said, ‘I am
    no more Messiah than you.
    The river delights to lift
    us free, if only we dare
    let go.  Our true work is
    this voyage, this adventure.’
  12. “But they cried the more,
    ‘Saviour!’ all the while clinging
    to the rocks, and when they
    looked again he was gone, and
    they were left alone making
    legends of a Saviour.”
