Empty bowl
you dance on water

Overfilled
you sink into the abyss.

With friends†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† you fly with your wings.
Without friends
you are a single fallen feather.
Flying with your wings†††††††††††††††††††††††††† you master the wind.
As a single feather
the wind blows you in all directions.

† -Rumi
