This morning session was an opportunity for those present to express their appreciation for their experience and Prem Rawat’s role in reminding us to celebrate every day. Prem joked that the session was “a day to play with the microphones.”
In the midst of a wide range of expressions, he reminded the audience that time is something we don’t have, but we think that we do. Forgetting that, we put off what we should do today, until tomorrow.
Focus 5 in Amaroo continued in this amazing setting with another opportunity to hear Prem Rawat remind us of the life choices that are in our control. He explained how pain can come in many forms including emotional, physical and the expectations we set for ourselves. He encouraged everyone, reminding us that “giving up” is the worst thing you can do.
Prem continued with the message that there is always hope and by having the courage you will be on the journey to knowing yourself. It is our outlook and our understanding that is at the core of overcoming obstacles. We need to make the choice to “water the plants and not the weeds and there will be a good yield.” A gardener learns, over time, the difference between the two.
Prem also warns us that the world promises you everything but gives you nothing, while inner wisdom, even though promising nothing gives you everything. With gratitude for this life, we can celebrate in the midst of any darkness.
In this Amaroo session, Prem Rawat highlights the work he does with The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) and invites a distinguished panel on to the stage to discuss the incredible impact that the Peace Education Program is having on people around the world.
The group shares how the program got its humble start 10 years ago and has now reached 300,000 people in 80 countries. They share profound stories of how the program is transforming the lives of university students, gang members, incarcerated people and more.
Prem Rawat outlines how the program has become a key part of his outreach and celebrates the people who are helping make it happen. He also notes how the TPRF Food for People program is helping break the cycle of poverty in disadvantaged communities. At a follow-up meeting, Prem was able to spend some time with a group of TPRF volunteers from around the world.
