Anything that we do can lead to a devotional state - gardening, being a parent, son, daughter, scientist, musician, artist, plumber, builder..... we are here simply to be us - not to be defined by what we do or how we see ourselves in relation to others. We are undeniably our unique selves!
Each of us, our basic essence/consciousness, is unique like a jigsaw puzzle piece. We are pieces of consciousness with a particular "shape" and so each one of us is absolutely essential for the unfolding of the Universe.
We are each individual jigsaw pieces in the great puzzle of the universe! Everything in its right place - Radiohead!
