What keeps that moon up where it is? Perfect distance. Perfect alignments. It’s making sure perfectly that that breath is coming into you. And this is what I mean. Prepare, prepare for today. Prepare to be astonished. Prepare to be fulfilled.
These are your real aspirations. This is my message: wake up! Prepare. Don’t be distracted. Don’t be distracted. Know that fundamental thirst that you have inside; don’t be afraid of it. If you want to be content, that’s no mistake. No mistake.
What does it take? What does it take? You know, for a lot of you it’s like, “Well, how do you do this? How, how, how?” To me ‘how’ is not an issue. I know how to do it. It is coming to that conclusion. That’s the issue. Coming to that conclusion that, yes, what is important in my life is that I want to be fulfilled, that I want to listen to my thirst, that I want to understand my thirst, that I want to fulfill my life.
This is what has to happen every day—that you have to prepare. Prepare today to welcome this life. Do you know how to welcome...have you ever welcomed this life? Have you? Because you have to. You should. With this life, you are everything; without this life, you’re worthless. They’re not even going to want you in your own house. And you would have lived an existence in which you had the possibility to know, to feel, to understand the Divine that is within inside of you right now. This is what this life is, isn’t it? This is that little bridge where the infinite and the finite—finite is this; infinite is within you—have come as close as humanly possible. And that’s it.
This is your chance to have a realization of realization, to have a feeling of feelings, to have an understanding of understandings, to have a clarity of clarities. This is as close as it gets.

Urban poet, spoken word recording artist, comedian, and broadcaster Mr. Gee interviews international ambassador of peace Prem Rawat in this full-length interview - Peacemakers.
You have the most powerful friend. And that is inside of you wherever you go. You don’t need fear. You need strength. And the strength that I am talking about is inside of you.
Knowledge of the self, of you!—so you can understand, so you can see, so you can feel, so you know! And not learn to live in a world of beliefs—but to know. To welcome every single day like you will not get another one.
And that’s when every day starts to become a gift.
