Prem Rawat - Maharaji - To be happy To be happy [06:21 min] The thirst is always there to be fulfilled and that is the real thirst.
Those wants that I have in my life, that have not changed since I was a child. Do you know of those wants, do you know, what they are??
The promises, you made to yourself, to always fulfill those wants, have you kept them up? Have you looked?? Have you searched for that? that has always been within you?
You have searched outside but have you searched inside?? This is why this is so different, this is why my message is so different, because everybody points outside, I point inside. I say what you need, you already have

Who are you?? There is one part of you that always was, is and will be. One part of you that makes you, YOU. This (skin) could become a pumpkin, come back as eggplant, because it is just dirt, just dirt. Dirt will mix into dirt and next thing you know, it could be coming up as jackfruit tree, coming up as flower. It could be coming up as eggplant, could be coming up as banana. Actually it’s not much of a difference, because molecules are just molecules, but what makes you as you, is the union of the two the infinite and finite and come together. That one part of you, that always will be, will be, was, but wasn’t you and will be but it won’t be you, you, is those two have come together, and so far those two are together, possibility exists and of all the possibility, one of possibility that exists is that this finite machine can feel the infinity.
As close as they get, you feel. The feeling machine, this is what you have been given, feeling machine-it feels, feels and feels. This is what it does and not only does It feel, it does something else. When it feels something good, it likes it; it smiles, becomes content, and actually becomes happy. This is not me saying this; so many people have said this.
Plug this machine, you keep plugging it into the world, trying to happy just like walking around this world, try this, try that and you know brings happiness when it fizzles out it is gone. Hey instead of plugging into all these things, plug in to that infinite, that’s in you and it fireworks, bliss, contentment, joy, all become yours.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - What are you busy with? What are you busy with? [03:19 min] We are busy, and we allow ourselves to be busy, and we accept that we are busy. But we never ask ourselves what are we busy with. Where's it going? There are careers, and people work. And don't misunderstand, I'm not saying good or bad. I'm just presenting how it is. You are busy with your career, you are busy with your life. You are busy in trying to make some dream come true. But where is this headed? What's going to be its outcome. How will it all end? And it's doesn't matter whether you are a king, or a pauper, or a beggar. Whether you are the most important person, or the least important person on the face of this earth.

Ultimately, there is something waiting for you. You go through the same rules, as everyone. There are no exceptions. One day you weren't, today you are, and one day you won't be. We judge our life by what is placed on the plate. And don't we do that. And so we say I'm happy because of this. But I ask does it make any difference? Because at the end of the day everybody has to share the same exact fate. And no exceptions. You cannot buy another day because you are wealthy. When it is your time, then it is your time, and you have to go. So the point really becomes, not the death, nor the birth. You understand? But what happens between the two moments!
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - The Ability to Be Happy The Ability to Be Happy [03:58 min] I ask you, "Does your ability to feel contentment actually ever vary?" The answer to it is "No". The ability to feel that joy in your life doesn't vary. So let's stop for a second. Hmmm, the ability does not vary, but the joy that I feel does vary. I would be a hypocrite to say to you "Yes, 24x7 365 days a year, I'm in complete bliss" I'm not going to tell you this, because that's not true. Things happen. So what does that mean? It means that I can actually make an effort and feel that joy- far more than I ever imagined. Just simple, I want to feel a gratitude when I wake up, that I'm alive. That is blessing- this breath is coming in and out of me. I can find my joy within me.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - The Grand Illusion- Maya The Grand Illusion- Maya [09:21 min] This is not about the books, this is not about the explanations. The people who are caught up in the explanation are going to need more explanations. Am I wrong? You think all the explanations that have been written 200 years ago, 300 years ago, 2000 years ago would have been sufficient. You think that is sufficient? People are still writing them. People are still interpreting and trying to figure out, what was 'really' said! Do you think its going to stop anytime soon? No. People will go on explaining to you, what was really meant when the word was used. And you, you want nothing better than a predigested package- feed it to me! This is how most people are! There are a lot of people who're going to buy the new iPhone. But they're never going to read the manual. And for years they're going to go around, till they find somebody else who has an iPhone and has also read the manual, and go "How do you do it?"

Whoever can explain to you this, of how everything happens, is not telling the truth. Because; it cannot be explained. We forget our very humanness, that we are human beings. So many have come before us. We are tantalized by technologies, 'oh its different now'. Is it? What has all this technology got to do with your humanness. Your humanness has nothing to do with it. Your sorrow, your joy will not be affected by all of this. This was dubbed long time ago, there was a word given to it- Grand Illusion 'Maya'. People still don't understand on how could this be an illusion. They even make jokes about it being illusion. It is an illusion because it is here today, and gone to tomorrow. What seemed to be forever, is gone. And where? No one knows. Right in front of your eyes, a day is gone, the biggest magician plays his grand effects. A day is gone, and a life is gone- and nobody applauds of how wonderful that little illusion was. Because this is not an illusion, because this is not an illusion. What is gone- is not coming back. Thats why you need to be conscious in this life.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - That's what I do That's what I do [02:25 min] Reality is much more beautiful than fantasy. Because there is someone actually with whom you can live with 'Happily ever After'. And that is in your heart. No conflicts, no judgement.

This is the reality my friend. You're here and you are the ocean of peace, of kindness, of understanding, of happiness. Look within and you'll see what I'm talking about. And, if you do not know how to look within (opens his arms)- This I'm good at! That's what I do.

I'm not here to sell you anything. You search, wherever you find it; perfect. Be happy, enjoy it, be content. Flourish. But if you don't find it, look me up.

I've this way, I call it knowledge; To know. That can take your attention from outside, turn it inside and you can feel that ocean inside of you. That's it. That's what I do.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Play It With Passion Play It With Passion [07:48 min] Human being is an incredibly fine, sensitive, experiencing instrument. That truth resides in you and it will sing out. That is the ultimate passion. Play this instrument. Its resonance, its gratitude, contentment, peace, joy, these are the nodes of this instrument. Play it with the passion it deserves. Fortunately or unfortunately till you play, that yearning will never go away and if you play it that yearning will increase. In my book when something is like that that without it the yearning never goes away and with it the yearning increases then this is the most accurate description of true passion. And that is the passion you need in your life.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Wish you were here! Wish you were here! [02:15 min] I can tell you one thing, every person who has been within, has called out to the entire humanity and called out "Wish, you were here!" Because there is no place like home! And that's your home (pointing to the heart).

When people are told by doctors that they've only 6 months to live, first it's hard to digest it. But once they come to terms with it, I've seen them getting bubbly. They become conscious and start enjoying everyday! "I don't wanna be distracted" But why does it have to be dire straits before clarity kicks in? Can't we have it before the dire straits? And you know what that process is called? Being Conscious.

You want to pray? Great! But what should your prayer be like? Santa Claus's wishlist? Or should the prayer be "Thank you! Thank you for this life, for this breath, for today, for this moment". But it isn't. Because there is no experience of today.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - The blooming called peace The blooming called peace [02:47 min] Prem Rawat speaking in Milan, Italy
Every human being is a seed. I'm not a philosopher. Because a philosopher would talk about the potential of the seed, I talk about the realization of that potential. I'm not a philosopher, I'm much closer to a gardener. Prepare field of your understanding. And then take this existence that you have and sow it in this field. Give it the water of knowing, not believing. Give it the light of clarity. And watch this seed bloom! This blooming is called Peace.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Prem Rawat asked to define peace Prem Rawat asked to define peace [02:45 min] On the 23rd of May 2013, Prem Rawat spoke at the UWC Red Cross Nordic college in Flekke, Norway to an audience of students and faculty.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - All is Well All is Well [08:21 min] You are on this planet earth. You are alive and you are making this journey. It is very easy to get confused. Well, there are so many people with me making this journey. No, they are not. Now how can I say that, because if you think they are all coming with you in this journey. Only one drops off.
I will tell you what happened. Grand Illusion happened. You are travelling alone. Every step. You think there is somebody to catch you, you are mistaken.
Is that bad? Is that a horrible news? The question isn't that. The question is, you have been walking. So, learn how to walk straight. Learn, how to walk in earnest. With the head held high with clarity, with smile, with a laughter, with certainty. All is well!
Krishna said, long time ago, even in your darkest hour, I will not abandon you. In other words, All is well!
That the gift of all gifts, the supreme gift, the gift of life, the gift of breath, the gift of being able to understand, the gift of being able to fell is unfolding everyday, never being taken away from you. Infact these gifts have been given with so much exacting power, that nobody can take them away. No one can take away that gift that is so freely given. This is what it means, to walk in clarity.
