Although a bee gathers honey from many flowers, it never destroys any of the flowers. It is very artful, very gracious. It does not hurt. In fact, the flower feels tremendously joyous when a bee comes to it. It is really a compliment. And the bee is never destructive. It collects whatsoever it needs, but in such an artful way, with such skill that the flower remains absolutely the same. That’s how a sannyasin has to be.

Live in such a way that nobody is harmed by you. Live in a creative way, with skill and art, live in a sensitive way. And never become attached. Enjoy all kinds of experiences, all kinds of flowers, but keep moving. Don’t get caught anywhere and then you are bound to attain godliness.
