True Consciousness - Flowers

The true consciousness is that you do the right thing not because it us your duty to do it, not because it is worthy to do it and it is expected of you to do it. The flower blooms spontaneously without any sense of duty. It possesses no sense of duty because its nature is to do so, to be beautiful. Human beings also could be like that, spontaneous and natural in its action and behavior. When you do a great thing, you do not feel that you are doing something marvelous or that you are exercising or stretching your power. You do not do a thing because it is your duty to do it but because it is your nature to do so, you cannot but do it.
