What Is Peace?

There is a place in you where that light is, where that joy is, where that clarity is, where that understanding is. And experiencing that place will bring you peace. That’s what peace is.

Most of us have no idea what peace is. Peace is not about problems, the good and bad, the confusion. It is a part of your nature. Video excerpted from "Making a Difference," Prem Rawat at Kind Malaysia Expo 2018. Full audio or video also available in the Events section of the app and website.

What is my message? And you’ve all heard “peace ambassador”, “peace ambassador.” Don’t, don’t get taken up by that. In my opinion, you’re all peace ambassadors because you all have peace in you. So you have, you’re also peace ambassadors.

But the problem is that word, peace is possible– it’s not a problem if you understand what peace is. If you don’t know what peace is, ‘is possible’ really becomes ‘impossible.’

And as I travel the world and I say to people ‘peace,’ and people have no idea what peace is. No idea. For most people, escaping from their problems is peace. You see? Let me ask you a question. Why do you want peace? Why? Why do you want peace? Well, so what? You want dahl too, no? Do you like rice? Do you like rice? So, you like rice too. But that doesn’t say ‘rice as possible.’ That says ‘peace is possible.’ Why do you want peace? Ahh, to be happy. Oh, how many of you want peace because it makes you happy? Raise your hand.

So, next question. Why do you want to be happy? It feels good? That’s why you want to be happy, because it feels good? Why do you want to feel good? Why do you want to be happy? Why do you want peace? So, is your happiness not always there? Does happiness fall from the sky? Does happiness grow in the field? What is your happiness? What is happiness?

To you, your bus is leaving and you’re not on it, and the bus driver sees you running behind the bus and he stops. “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.” Is that what peace is, getting on the bus?

So, I’m asking these questions because I want to engage you. I want you to think; I want you to understand that peace isn’t running away from your problems. Peace isn’t about your problems. Peace isn’t about the good and bad. Peace isn’t about the confusion.

What is peace? As human beings, we have two parts to us; it’s just a physical rule. You cannot have one-sided coin. Every coin has two sides. Even if you split the coin to get rid of one side, you will still have two sides. Just the law of nature, right? So, every time you are confused, guess what the other side of that is. Clarity—that far away.

When you find yourself in darkness, light is that far away. When you find yourself in sorrow, happiness, joy is that far away. I’m just being, so you can see, it’s less distance than that, believe me.

You have two natures in you. You have kindness. You have clarity. This is your nature too. Kindness, clarity, compassion, joy, light is your nature too. And confusion, anger, frustration is also your nature. So don’t get, you know, like, “Oh yeah, I like that. I like, light is my nature.” No, darkness is your nature too. Darkness is your nature too. But so is light; so is light.

So there is a place in you, the place where that light is ,where that joy is, where that clarity is, where that understanding is, and that, experiencing that place will bring you peace. That’s what peace is. That’s what peace is.
