I was recently asked what the term ‘treasure’ means to me. Here is my reply:
Treasure is whatever brings pure happiness to a person.
It does not have to be of material significance or monetary value, it needs only to lift the spirit and awaken joy in one's heart.
Treasure to one person may be dross to another, it matters not.
All that is essential is that it should bring light into a patch of shadow for its owner, and make that person feel more joyful for owning it.
That is the sole function of treasure - anything additional detracts from its reason for existing and obscures its true nature.
