“It is the light of awareness that makes things precious, extraordinary. Then small things are no longer small. When a man with alertness, sensitivity, love touches an ordinary pebble on the seashore, that pebble becomes a Kohinoor. And if you touch Kohinoor in your unconscious state, it is just an ordinary pebble – not even that. Your life will have as much depth and as much meaning as you have awareness.
“Now people are asking all over the world. “What is the meaning of life?” Of course the meaning is lost because you have lost the way to find the meaning – and the way is awareness.”
