Have you ever seen a native Rajesthani dancer, dancing while a pot filled with water rests on her head?
She moves gracefully, bends, jumps and lights her face up with a lot of expressions but underneath all that show she has utmost concentration on the pot of water which rests on her head. While she does everything to please the audience, her focus is on not to spill a drop of water.
In our everyday life we balance so many things, our family, social obligations, personal goals etc. while we do all those to be the social animal ,our ultimate focus should be on the almighty, in realizing the divinity with in us.
As the great saying goes “hands in the society, head in the forest”.
Idea from a speech about Sri Sankaracharya.
