Q: Sometimes there is meditation, at other times there are worldly activities. What is the difference between the two?

Bhagavan: To be in meditation and to be in activity are both the same. It is like calling the same object by its name in two different languages; like the crow only having one eye but seeing in two different directions; like the elephant using the same trunk for the two activities of breathing and drinking water; like the cobra using its eyes for the two functions of seeing and hearing. 

He quoted verse 2.173 from Kaivalya Navanitam:

If you always remain aware that "I" am perfect consciousness, what does it matter how much you think, or what you do? All this is unreal, like dream visions after waking. 'I' am all bliss!
