The fisherman in Lake Tanganyika have a unique way of fishing.

They throw a net between two fishing boats. The shadow casts over the water makes the fish ‘believe’ they are caught in a net. The fish behave accordingly and just stay within the confines of the shadow net. The fishermen then get their hand held nets and scoop up their dinner.

Check to see if you are caught in the proverbial net of deceipt. Things are not always what they appear to be, but if we are stuck in one perception of reality, we cannot see any outs. Stop for a moment, and ask, “Is this true?” “How do I know it’s true?”

This photo is not from Lake Tanganyika, but in the Gulf of Mexico where my nephew is throwing his net to catch bait.
