When some things are special, It is sorrow ..... When one thing is special, It is deep misery ..... When one thing is everything, It is sheer torture ..... When nothing is special, All is joy ..... When everything is special, All is Supreme Love ..... THAT IS DEVOTION.
An incense burns on my table. Is this a trivial affair? Gyaan lit... The vasana stick (ego) slowly but steadily burns to an ash-stick leaving behind a refreshing fragrance for others. The entire atmosphere is rendered holy. You light it up once, then the burning is continuous. Light it at the lamp at the feet of the Lord.
