First thing you must be dedicated to is
the joy that dances in your heart.
The first thing you need to be dedicated to is certainty,
not doubt. To favor clarity in your life rather than confusion.
To be dedicated to knowledge instead of ignorance.
To be dedicated to being fulfilled, rather than empty.
And if you were dedicated to these,
surely they will reward you by bringing you
the most exquisite gift of peace, of joy, of understanding.
-Prem Rawat at Long Beach, California - 2012
