During this final Focus 5 Amaroo 2022 session Prem translates Hindi and English weaving in a mix of traditional Indian stories and modern examples. He reflected that in today’s world the value of a human being is disappearing. While we might live in a time of political correctness, it hasn’t resulted in a sense of closeness, rather we are more and more divided.
Prem reminds us that we look for love and kindness in the environment, not realizing that what we are looking for is inside. As he has stated for years, it is only when each of us becomes kind that society will be kind. Dedicate your life to understanding the Divine, without concepts but by personal experience. Concepts are the drug that gets in our way.
On the final morning of the Focus 5, Prem Rawat reflected on the key lessons shared during this Amaroo 2022 experience. The session was moved into a new location due to heavy rains Thursday evening. Independent of any external challenges, Prem’s message was clear and powerful. He used the analogy of a water bottle never being as important as drinking the water.
He reminded the Amaroo attendees and the TimelessToday’s livestream audience that once you embark on the journey to know who you are, during this life it will never end. The beauty and experience of life is about discovery, discovery of a lifetime, your lifetime. Prem reminded everyone to appreciate and engage in the journey of life every single day, and that it is never too late to accept that peace in your heart and be fulfilled. He added “Empty yourself. Except for that which is real.”
The Day 4, the afternoon Focus 5 session allowed time for additional audience interaction. Prem, as always, offered his insights about life as a beautiful play to watch and enjoy.
He reflected on love in its purest form as a love without all the noise. And, he again reminded us of reality’s beauty, and that there is no need to create alternatives.
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.
