He can see what he wants, but he can’t have it!
Not only can he see what he wants, but the tools he needs to break the glass and get what he wants are outside the jar.

You can use your mind to escape from the jar. You can study and learn to levitate out of the jar.
You can use your mind to study, get a highly paid job and increase both your social and economic standing.
PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE
