I welcome your efforts for participation, but those efforts must be in sync with what I am trying to do.
Prem’s four international birthday celebrations for the year was kicked off in September at Ivory’s Rock Conference Center near Brisbane, Australia (Amaroo). Over 4000 guests from all over the world attended this 5-day convention.
Here’s Prem’s 2nd address on Day 3.
But what if those “enough” today that are so ripe and ready to fight…that there was another thought, that there was another option, and that option was the option of peace? But not, peace as the world misunderstands it. I mean, it’s obvious why the world would ill-define what peace is—so that it can be brushed aside, so that it remains insignificant.
“Oh, it means you will become a vegetable. Oh, it means that you will not be able to pursue your career.” Purposely, these definitions have been given to peace, so people would go, “Oh, I don’t want to have anything to do with it. Sorry, I do want my career. I have to feed myself; I have to feed my family; I have to do this; I have to do that. I have to take these responsibilities; I have a house; I have a mortgage.” And people brush this aside!
And I am the one who says, “No-no-no-no, you can have your mortgage. Take another one out if you feel like it. Have two; have three!” I mean, that’s what all these, you know, institutions in America were saying the Mac and Freddie Mac, or whatever they were. And it’s like, “Why do you want to just have one home—have two! Have three! Have four!” And people would go, “Okay.” And they’d get a loan, and they could never repay it. And the big crash happened.
So, here is…when it really comes to this urge that you feel for participation, and to take this message forward, I welcome that. I welcome your efforts. But at the same time, I welcome those efforts that are in sync with what I am trying to do.
Because of all the people sitting here—of all the people sitting here, no one has been doing it for fifty years. If nothing else, you’ve got experience—and bad experiences and good experiences—and I’m coming from experience.
And so, for me it’s a very unique thing. When you get to my age, you start to play it really safe, right? And like, “Well, no, no, let’s not do anything....” No, I…I just feel like I’m getting started.
