There is no such thing as inanimate matter. There is life in everything. Life is involved in a piece of stone. All matter is vibrant with life - this has been conclusively proved by modern scientists. Smile with the flowers and the green grass. Play with the butterflies, birds and deer. Shake hands with the shrubs, ferns and twigs of trees. Talk to the rainbow, wind, stars and sun. Converse with the running brooks and the waves of the sea. Speak with the walking stick. Develop friendship with all your neighbors, dogs, cats, cows, human beings, trees, flowers, etc. Then you will have a wide, perfect, rich, full life. You will realize oneness of life. This can hardly be described in words - you must feel it for yourself.
As you move towards the conclusion of your present earth incarnation, you must be at the very top...at the very top.
