"You have a job, you have a kid, you have a house, you have a cat, you have a dog… ."
That's not life. Those are things in your life.
There are all those things that are relative, and there is one thing that is absolute, and that is within you.
You have life. It is absolute. One day it won't be.
But as long as you are alive and you have the capacity to be conscious, be conscious of that which is the real life.
Be aware of this existence that you have, because being aware of that existence brings joy - being aware of that existence brings peace.
- Prem Rawat
