So everywhere – whether you are in the market, or doing Hare Krishna, Hare Rama, or sitting under a tree silently – take it as one expanse, don’t divide it. And when you are dancing, doing Hare Krishna, Hare Rama, enjoy it. It is the way you are flowering, the way your tree is being this very moment. Hare Krishna, Hare Rama can become a flowering in you; it has become a flowering for many. When Mahaprabhu Chaitanya was dancing in the villages of Bengal and doing his kirtan, Hare Krishna, Hare Rama, it was a flowering. It was one of the most beautiful things that has ever happened. Not only is Buddha sitting under a bodhi tree beautiful, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu dancing in the streets with Hare Krishna, Hare Rama is also beautiful – the same, just the other extreme.
You can sit under a tree and can forget yourself so completely that you have disappeared. You can dance in a street and be so absorbed in your kirtan, in your singing, in your dancing, that you have disappeared. The secret is total absorption wherever it happens.
It happens to different people in different ways. We cannot conceive of Buddha dancing; he was not that type, not a dancing type. You may be a dancing type, so don’t force yourself, otherwise sitting under a bodhi tree you will be in trouble. Just forcing yourself, stilling yourself, will be violent. Then your face will not become like a Buddha; it will be tortured, it will be a self-torture. You may be like Chaitanya, you may be like Meera….
Find out the way your cloud moves, where it drifts, and allow it full freedom to move and drift. Wherever it goes it will reach to the divine. Only just don’t fight, flow. Don’t push the river, flow with it. A dance is beautiful, but you must be totally in it – that’s the point. Don’t reject anything, rejection is irreligious. Accept totally, acceptance is prayer.
