The Salt Doll

by Ramakrishna Paramahansa

edited by Antony DeMello

A salt doll journeyed for thousands of miles over land,
until it finally came to the sea.

It was fascinated by this strange moving mass,
quite unlike anything it had ever seen before.

“Who are you?” said the salt doll to the sea.

The sea smilingly replied, “Come in and see.”

So the doll waded in.

The farther it walked into the sea the more it dissolved,
until there was only very little of it left.

Before that last bit dissolved, the doll exclaimed in wonder,
“Now I know what I am!”
