Ordinarily man is unconscious . Just a small part has become conscious , a very tiny part , very flickering . Any moment , if there is any small incident you will be unconscious . Somebody treads on your toes and you are unconscious ; somebody hits you and you are unconscious ; somebody insults you , looks at you with anger , and you are unconscious ; a beautiful woman passes by and you are unconscious . Your consciousness is not much , it is just a very peripheral phenomenon . You are carrying a vast continent of unconsciousness within . That has to be transformed .

When your whole being becomes conscious , when nothing can make you unconscious, when even in deep sleep the consciousness remains as a subtle background , as a backdrop , then one has come home .
