A honeybee extracts nectar from about 20 lakh flowers to make one pound honey. The honeybee flies and reaches a garden where there are many trees and other things. However, it goes straight to the flower from which it has to extract nectar. It does not waste even a second to get enmeshed in anything else. From this we learn that we have to lead our lives in this world in a very selective way. That is, to be concerned only with what is beneficial to our life and to avoid everything else. In life we shouldn’t get involved or waste our time in every kind of activity. Rather, we should become selective, or have interest in only that which is directly useful for the aim and purpose of our life.
