A bird sits on a tiny twig in perfect confidence. Where does it get the confidence from? Not from the twig but from the wings which can take it aloft at the slightest sign of danger. The twig is Prakriti, the world. Sit on it lightly, gaily, confidently but rely more on the wings, namely, Divine Grace which can lift you aloft away from Prakriti at the slightest premonition of danger. The twig is not very reliable but the wings are always there to save you.
