When the Lord asked him where he should place his third step as all of Bali's possessions had been occupied already by the two steps, Bali did not hesitate or waver, but bent down and indicated his own head.
Esoterically, the story is significant in many ways. If only we allot a little space in our heart for the Lord and also earmark a few moments out of the 24 hours in a day for remembering Him, worshipping Him, chanting His names, then very soon a day will come when the Lord will occupy the entire heart and also take up all of our 24 hours. When we take a single step towards the Lord in all sincerity, He takes several steps towards us – that is the secret of all Sadhana.
