Yesterday and Today

The fact is, tomorrow can never really come.
Thus the only way peace can come is, as today.

Someone is caught up in yesterday, and somebody is caught up in tomorrow. That pretty much sums up everybody, everybody that’s here: “Somebody is caught up in yesterday, and somebody is caught up in tomorrow.”

No? You’re not thinking about tomorrow? You don’t think about tomorrow? And do you realize what the fact is? Tomorrow can never come. Because if it decides to come, it has to change itself from tomorrow to today.

In fact, think about it. You have been living in today all your life! It was always today! Today, today, today, today, today, today, always. And you’re not trained for today.

So, this is what I do. I go talk about peace. But the only way the peace is going to come to you is when you start living in today. Because that’s where peace is. Not in tomorrow, not in yesterday. Today.

Peace? Not a problem. Where is it? Inside of you. Was it there yesterday? Yes. Will it be there tomorrow? Yes, if you’re there tomorrow, it’ll be there tomorrow.

You want to feel it? You won’t feel it tomorrow. You want to feel it? You won’t feel it yesterday. You want to feel it? You’ll feel it today.

– Prem Rawat
