For the centred person everything becomes beautiful, and whole.
Whatever he or she is doing, no matter what it is, they focus their mind and take full mindfulness. Nothing is trivial.
They will not say, “this is small and this is large.” This is important and this is unimportant, no, for them everything holds the same weight.
A centred person, feels in harmony with everything. You can feel it in their touch. The great doctors and healers of our time have been known for the power of their touch, the softness of the disposition and the power of the concentration.
A person who is centred is the same, no matter who they are with, or where they are. They have the same inner quality. When meeting a beggar they are not different from meeting a King. When on stage they are identical to offstage. When alone they are no different than when they are with friends.
This is the mark of a person who is centred, completely natural.
There is no need to pretend, there is no act to present.
They practice between performances. Falsehood has no place in their life because the centre is the axis around which they live their life.
This includes handling discomfort and pain.
Can you imagine being centred enough to welcome pain with the same loving kindness as you welcome pleasure?
This is real spirit.
