Prem Rawat: On this planet Earth, there are ten quintillion insects. I don’t know if you can imagine that but ten quintillion insects. There are 7.9, (it’s .89 but) 7.9 billion people on the face of this earth. And there’s so much that is going on that we get lost. We get agitated. We get tripped up every day.
Coming here, it was supposed to be twenty minutes. It was over forty-five minutes. Traffic! And you’re sitting in a car going, “I’m going to be late. I’m going to be late. I’m going to be late. I’m going to be late. Oh my God, what’s going to happen? What...?” It’s noise. It’s noise! We get so lost in this noise.
When do we acknowledge the silence of ourselves? Away from that noise is something amazing. Away from all that, there is a human being aspiring to live in peace. And everything else is getting in the way. “No, you’d better do this; no, you’d better look at this, and no, you do this, you, no, you do this.”
All right! I understand. But do you know what the ultimate conclusion is going to be? The ultimate conclusion, whether you consider yourself to be successful in this world or not...? It doesn’t matter if all you made was one quarter, just a quarter—or you made ten billion. The fate reserved for you is identical.
No privilege: “All those who made more than a quarter, use that door. All those who made less than the quarter, use that door,” no! You just, you will share the identical fate.
So now, the variance is not that. The variance is, the difference is what you accomplish, not in regards to anybody else, but to you! That you experience peace, that you experience joy, that you experience understanding. That you experience clarity in your life. Not confusion.
