There is something within you that offers simple wisdom.
It can guide your actions to elegant consequences.
Excerpts from Prem Rawat’s address in Selangor, Malaysia.
Prem Rawat was invited to speak at Taylor’s university. Students of the Peace Education Program, VIPs and faculty attended the event. A compelling interaction ensued as students posed their questions to Prem.
“Who are you? What are you?” When you hear that– “Do you know yourself”—what does that mean? Is it some definition that somebody’s going to plunk in your head? Is it going to be something that somebody sitting or standing behind a podium is going to lecture you on? It better not be. Because it has to be something you know, from the bottom of your heart—who you are. That you were given an opportunity to be alive.”
By Prem Rawat

These hands have cradled a baby. (In human beings, these hands have cradled a baby.) These hands with the skill and knowledge of a surgeon have healed a person. These hands, with the intent of love, have held a face and comforted.
These hands have picked up a gun and destroyed a life. These hands—(not mine but hands of the world. Next thing you know, you know, say, “Oh, you killed somebody?” No.) No, but have taken, and destroyed.
It is of utmost importance to understand that the actions of this of these hands has to be governed by the heart and not the craziness of this world.
