This simple crane is just looking around. The spotless white color adds to its simplicity.How ever,if an innocuous fish happens to come by, the scene will suddenly transform into an intense fight. The crane will swoop and in a flash the fish will be history. We understand the crane's passive expression is a veneer for its active search within. Searching for a suitable prey, the crane is ready to wait. Looks can be deceptive indeed.
A devotee has a similar outlook towards life. one look at him and there is nothing special. A moment later, an opportunity to serve Krishna comes his way and he swoops on it. Within a moment, a passive disinterested person is barely recognizable as he happily serves to please his dear Lord. All day, people call him passive but that is just a mask; he is contemplating and planning within on how to increase his service to his dear Lord.
