In Chan Buddhism there is a very popular saying called “fly the bird’s route”(鸟道之行) -- please refer to one famous poem written by a Chan Buddhism master down below. Is it a metaphor or a reality? Is its principle also put into practice in Taoist alchemy practice and if so, how? The more details provided the better! Many thanks!

沙禽夜宿沧洲树,
石笋新穿古路台。
莫道鲲鲸无羽翼,
今日亲从鸟道回。
