There is a saying in Hasidism (Jewish mysticism): "I go to the great teacher, not to study the scriptures, but to watch him tie his shoe lace," meaning that it is a great joy and spiritually liberating to watch a true master perform even the most simple of tasks. There is an ease and elegance of movement about someone who has mastered the art of living. It is like seeing a very beautiful work of art or hearing a great symphony— our veins thrill with the energy of appreciation when we see a gifted person perform the ordinary tasks of life with precision and care. There is an innocence about such a person that captures our hearts. And we realize that that same innocence and beauty we see and feel in this person is also in us.
