Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Stating the obvious Stating the obvious [04:17 min] Everything that I am stating is obvious. What is the obvious? That you are alive. This is obvious. That peace that you look for is inside of you. That is obvious. Everything else, in a moment's notice, can change. The only thing that doesn't change is your strength, your beauty, your joy. You, after all, are a human being.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Seed of Kindness Seed of Kindness [03:51 min]
When we come in this world, We are given seeds. And this is of course a metaphor
But its true that we are human beings. But the opportunity truly is, what we do with these seeds. And what are these seeds?
Well we can begin with very simple stuff. One of the seeds can be the seed of kindness, There is a seed of love, there is a seed of understanding, and there is a seed of doubt, there is a seed of confusion. And it always becomes- whatever seed it is that you have sown in your garden- garden of life, garden of existence, then ultimately this is what you are going to sit under and rest, and how restful it will be, directly depends, on what kind of seed you sow.
So every seed that you have, has a particular quality, has something that it offers, but when it is sown, and when it bears itself, when it grows and becomes a tree, it is going to have very particular characteristics which you may or may not like.
I am not here to pass judgement, nor am I here to try to advertise what kind of seed it is that you should have sown.
I think that if I merely point out some of the characteristics of these, then you are capable of making that decision for yourself, that fundamentally being human, you have enough intelligence to choose from clarity, to choose what will benefit you the most, each one of us within ourselves, carries an innate need and this need is never dictated by the world, it is our need, and it is fundamental to every human being.
This is the need that we have when we were young, it is the need that will stay there throughout our lives and will be there till the very end.
This is who we are- This is one of our natures.

Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Beauty of Existence Beauty of Existence [04:34 min] There is a saying- and I believe the saying exist without accident, that you came empty-handed, and you'll go empty handed. Why is it no accident? Because this is what people have observed, that all you've done, is left here when you've to leave.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Ask yourself Will today be the day? Ask yourself "Will today be the day?" [01:33 min] I know you have asked yourselves so many questions, and so many questions will still come your way. But ask yourselves this question one day, when you really feel like it- Will today be the day that I will feel peace?
Will today be the day I will feel immeasurable joy?
Will today be the day that I will understand the value of my existence?
WIll today be the day when my heart will sing in its real Gratitude- "Thank you"
I want that in MY life! And I want that in my life for ME!
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - The Promises You Made The Promises You Made [08:53 min] Prem Rawat talks about the wants we have had since we were children and the promises we made to ourselves to fulfill them. “Have you kept them?” he asks. “Look within you for the thirst,” he says, “because it is the thirst that will lead you to water. Understand what you have been given because it is magnificent.”

Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Surprise event at Malibu, California Surprise event at Malibu, California [04:13 min] Do you have the ability to look at every day anew? Yes you do. Do you? No, so, whats the point? Do you have the ability to recognize the value of a moment? Do you? No. You are perfectly satisfied being frustated. You would rather talk about all those things that went wrong. It's a nice point of conversation with your friends, with your family. All the things that happen that are good, no one wants to talk about. It's not interesting. It's not interesting to talk about that you are alive. It's taken for granted, till you die.
The opportunity has been given to you because you have the ability to recognize what is good. So, do so.
If life was a canvas and a bunch of colors, would you paint? If life was a drum, would you play? Would you? Or would you say, I do not know how to paint. Or would you say, I don't know how to play. Or would you say, I do not understand. Or would you say, I don't know how.
I don't know how, is an excuse because if you really don't know how, then you would find out how it takes to search, takes to see, takes to understand that tool that you have been given, the tool called life.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - The Possibility to Play The Possibility to Play [08:00 min] You are the owner of an instrument that only you can play, you are the only one who can perceive the beauty of its music with every breath you take. The story never told is your own, don’t forget. The beginning and the end are already known: one day you took your first breath and the day will come when you’ll stop breathing; meanwhile, remember you have a priceless instrument and the possibility to play it.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - It’s About You and Me It’s About You and Me [03:51 min] I am here to talk about something very simple but at the same time it touches every one of us and it is about this journey, this life, this existence. Not an idea, not a theory, not rules, not some printed pages but about you and me. Because the most incredible thing thats taking place is not all the things that you read in the newspaper, it is not a thing which is there in your library. And this important thing is that "You are alive!", now what? What does it mean to you? We have interpretations of what it means to be alive. The focus is not about those things, the focus is your existence, your being on the face of this earth. This will never happen again. The house that you live in, other ones will live in it. What is yours? What is it that you consider truly yours that no one can take away from you? Do you know it?
