Chilled Grooves

From the beginning of the 1990's Prem Rawat's speeches became more and more empty of content and settled into the rehashing of a few catchphrases and various key-words usually in a very upbeat manner, the antithesis of many his late 1970's brooding, whining and complaining speeches. The published music of his followers followed course and this is particularly apparent in these CDs of "chilled grooves with words of wisdom." "Inward Spiral" (2012) and "Music To My Heart" mostly created by David deLaski the son of philanthropist, software mogul and co-founder of Deltek Inc, Don deLaski (rumoured to be the source of much of Prem Rawat's wealth) and brother of Kenneth, a director of The Prem Rawat Foundation (2012). The "lyrics" are sampled sections of some of Prem Rawat's speeches, presumably those sections considered to be the most "poetic" or "deepest."

WHO YOU ARE

within

Open your eyes—inside,
in this wonderful city of the heart
and look around and see these beautiful avenues
and see the peace coming towards you.
And stand still.
Stand very, very still.
So the peace can find you.

Don't budge. Don't budge.
Let it come, let it touch you, let it envelop you.

Let that beautiful love—from within—come and hold you.

Peace is something that resides within.

Stand still—very, very still, so the peace can find you.

Open your eyes—inside.

the ocean

There is the ocean of questions.
But you have to realize that in the ocean of questions,
there are no answers.
And then there is the ocean of answers.
And in the ocean of answers, there are no questions.

For the mind, it is more intriguing to be filled with questions,
and for the heart, it is more intriguing to be filled with answers.
So which one do you want?

Answers, answers.

There is a giant ocean of answers within you.
Within you is the answer to every single question
— without the question.
Within you is the ultimate gift
being given freely every single day.
And it is the most precious thing on the face of this earth.

There is a giant ocean of answers within you.
And it is the most precious thing on the face of this earth.

who you are

It's about existence.
It's about us being here
on this planet.
This breath,
this consciousness…

Who am I?

And understanding our nature…
So many people don't know
what their nature is.

Who am I?

There is that question.
And people pursue that.
People would like to know the answer to it.

Who am I?

You love love.
It's a beautiful thing.
This is who you are.

You love joy.
This is who you are.

You adore happiness.
This is who you are.

You like being content.
This is who you are.

It's a good thing!
It's a beautiful thing.

now

This is my forever.
And here I am.

You want to live in the past;
you can't live in the past.
You want to live in the future;
you can't live in the future.
You're stuck
in this moment called now.
You are about now
because if you are in the future you don't exist,
and if you are in the past—you're dead.
Now. You are about now.

Why does a person not trust now,
but is willing to trust tomorrow,
when tomorrow can never, ever come?
Because if it decides to come, it must come as now.

And here in this moment called now,
life is dancing.
Doing a beautiful dance.

To come and reside,
to live
in that place
called the moment.

The possibilities are beautiful.
So why don't you welcome this unfolding?

And everything that you want to unfold in your life,
all your dreams, must come
through this channel, through this point,
through this bridge, through this portal called now
for them to be real.
Otherwise they will stay a dream.

That's the difference between dream and reality.

Now. Now is where this magic is happening.
Now is where everything is in motion.
Now is where it is. And now is where you are.
So where are you going?
Come back here.
Because here is where it's at.

Here is where it's at.

listen to your thirst

In this life, there is the thirst that we have been given,
and we must feel that thirst.
Listen to your thirst.
That thirst is there so that you can find your way.
You can find your way.
Listen to your thirst.
listen to your thirst—
the thirst that has always been there.
I'm talking about the fundamental thirst
because it is the engine that makes it all work.
This engine that molds and folds and that says,
"I want to be fulfilled!"

Listen to your thirst.

How powerful to be in that state
where I feel fulfilled.

Feel that thirst.

inner vision

What is this existence?
What is this existence?

Your existence is obvious.
It is not hidden under some rock in some mountain.
It is not hidden under some grass in some lush forest.
Here it is. It's obvious.

Existence—which makes everything possible.
You've been given a life so that this could happen,
so this could manifest.
Here it is.

Your quest is obvious.
It has always been,
and it seeks to be fulfilled.

And the magic of magics,
the miracle of miracles has happened.
You've been given a life.
You've been given a life so that this could happen.

What is this existence?
What is this existence?

I will tell you what this existence is.
It's pretty special. And you know why it's special?
Because it is a bridge.
It is an incredible bridge between the finite and the infinite.

This is where it happens.
This is where the two meet.
This is the threshold where the two can meet.
Where the mortal can experience immortality.

This is what it is.
Nothing else.
This is where it happens.
It's obvious.

choose light

Let there be light in your life.
That's the possibility.
Not darkness. Not confusion.
Choose that light so you can see.
Choose the love so you can feel.
Choose the joy so you can be elated.
Choose that gratitude so you may be mesmerized
by the wonder of this existence that you have.
Choose that that will satisfy the thirst of your heart. Choose. Choose that light.
Come from a place of clarity because you have felt your thirst. There is a desire to be fulfilled, and it is to be fulfilled by that beautiful joy that resides within.
Choose. Choose that light.

open your eyes

Find that joy.
The joy that doesn't come from the catalysts
on the outside,
but that is triggered
because one has found their fulfillment
within.
Because that's where peace is.
It's not on the outside.
Peace is within the heart of each being, Joy.
This is the doorway to freedom.
This is the doorway to enlightenment.
You can see clarity and you can see confusion.
You can see ignorance and you can see knowledge. That's what makes you so special.
This is why you have been given
this opportunity, this body, this existence.
Breath comes.
And each breath brings the possibility of being fulfilled.
What you are looking for is within you. Always has been and always will be.
Know in your life what joy is
and feel it every single day.
Know in your life what clarity is
and feel it every single day.
Know in your life the value of this breath
and feel it every single day.
Within you is the moment called now. Within you is the wisdom of all wisdoms.
Within you. Open your eyes.
the desire
The possibility of being fulfilled—
that's our endeavor, that's why we're here. That's why we're here.
To grab that moment

the desire

The possibility of being fulfilled—
that's our endeavor, that's why we're here.
That's why we're here.

To grab that moment
and say, "Let me extract out of it,
let me squeeze out of it all that I can."
That's why we're here.

The quest, the desire,
inside every human being,
wanting to be fulfilled.

Inside every human being:
the desire to be fulfilled,
the desire to be in peace.

You can feel that fulfillment.
You can feel it.
You don't have to imagine it.
You don't have to think it.
You can feel it.

The desire to be in peace—
you can feel it.
The desire—
you can feel it.

I want to feel good.
I want to feel content.
I want to feel satisfied.
I want to feel fulfilled.

This is why I exist.

You can feel it.
That's what it is.
Every moment is bringing you
an opportunity to be fulfilled.

That's why we're here.
It's a process of discovery.
It's a process of acknowledging each breath.

It's a process of fulfilling life.

You can feel that fulfillment.
You can feel it.
You don't have to think it.
You can feel it.

Here it comes,
this moment,
and it is full of that most beautiful fulfillment.

sunset

The power that we have is to appreciate.
That's an incredible power.
It's amazing. It's unbelievable.
It is somehow what makes the sun set.

I mean, the sun sets—it sets—it does its thing.
Sun doesn't care about anybody, I'm sure.
Doesn't even know people exist
on this planet earth.
But to have someone on this earth
who can look at it and say,
"That's magnificent."

The sky is blue.
Its blue for whatever the reason is.
But then to have somebody on the face of this earth
that can look at it and say,
"That's beautiful." Appreciate.

The power of appreciation—
because without that,
what have we got?
What have we got?

Without appreciation,
we would wake up and we would go to sleep,
and that's it.
And then one day we would go to sleep and not wake up.
And that would be the only difference—
just a flip.

But, we have been given this gift.
And it's this incredible gift—
to be able to admire, to be able to appreciate.
And now in our lives, the ultimate question becomes,
"What is worth appreciating?"

What is it in this world that I can really look at,
really appreciate, really appreciate—
that works.
Not dreams, not fantasies—but really,
something that I can appreciate.

And not just appreciate it one day,
or two days, or three days.
What is it that I can appreciate to my very last breath?

Next time you see a sunset,
look at the sunset.
Look at the sunset.
And then remember,
you're alive.
You exist.
You. You.

Gratitude.
To be thankful—not for the sunset,
but for that breath that is allowing you
to see the sunset.

Inward Spiral

Same Desire

We are all human beings
Every life is different
Every existence is different
Your concerns, what you like,
What you adore, what you look like,
Who your neighbor is, who your children are
Everything.
Every human being
Infinite variation.

And in this infinite variation there is one constant
We yearn for the same thing.

That in every human being there is a heart
That in every human being there is a desire to be content
And this desire never changes.

This desire to be content never ever changes
And never ever will change until your last breath
It's at the core of every human being on the face of this earth.
We yearn for the same thing.

In this world, every human being wants to feel peace.
In this world, every human being wants to feel joy.
Every human being wants to feel love.
Because this is our nature.

Angels

Of all the things
That you will ever
Experience in your life,
Simplest, simplest, is the coming
Of this breath.
Nothing can be simpler than this.
And what it does is so complex,
That the scientists, the doctors
Are still trying to figure out
How it all happens.

The miracle of existence
It begins so simply.
That is in your life most important,
most important.

Simplicity!
Beautiful, Beautiful angel
That resides within you.
Joy is a beautiful, beautiful angel
That resides within you too.
Clarity is a beautiful, beautiful angel
That resides within you as well.
These are your companions
But you don't know this.

You have forgotten yourself
You don't remember the kindness
In fact, in your troubles you may even forget.
But that power does not forget
To give you the gift of breath
It keeps coming.

Everyday it keeps coming.

Within you is a light so bright
That never again
Do you have to be in the darkness!
You are the well and from this well
Comes the spring of clarity.
Beautiful, beautiful angel
Within you.

Rhythm Of Clarity

Why do you listen to a song the second time
When you have already heard it?
The words that touch your heart,
Makes your heart feel good.
You want to listen again and again and again.
And the heart never gets tired of it. Never.

Because it can dance to that beautiful rhythm.
The rhythm of light, the rhythm of joy
The rhythm of hope, the rhythm of clarity.

The rhythm, that beautiful rhythm makes you feel
The rhythm, that beautiful rhythm
Makes you feel good.

This is a story and in this story
There are beautiful things.
The story should have hope and hope is tied to clarity.
This is your story one breath at a time.
That's your beat
That's your rhythm.

This is your symphony
This is your story one breath at a time.
That's your beat
That's your beat.
That's your rhythm.

The rhythm, that beautiful rhythm
Makes you feel.
The rhythm, that beautiful Rhythm
Makes you feel good.

That's your beat
That's your beat.
One breath at a time.
That's your rhythm.

Do you understand
What a miracle this is?

Gift Of Life

How far apart are we on this ship
On this journey of life?
How far apart are we
In our fundamental desire to be content?
How far are we?
How far are we?

So similar, so unique and so similar
Your reality is simple
The want to be fulfilled has always been there
The want to be content has always been there.
That is not new.

] And this want will be there until the very end
It is there from the beginning
It is there to the end
Because that reality of wanting to be in peace
Does not change.

Technology is changing incredibly fast
We look around we see the technology
And we get very proud of ourselves
And we say now we live in a different world.
See all that keeps changing
But you, my friends,
Something about you that does not change.

Your reality is something so simple
Your reality is something so sweet
Your reality is about you being here.

Beautiful, beautiful drum of breath
Is beating bringing you,
Every moment,
The gift of life

Your reality is
About you being here.
The gift of life

The Face of Peace

Peace is the desire of the heart.
Your Heart
Your Existence.

Your Heart
And as simple as the coming and going
Of this breath.
Do you know that this is your life?
This is your existence?

The face of peace.
The face of peace is none other
Than your face,
When you are
In contentment.

When you are in peace
Then the peace
Dances on your face.

Begin to understand
Not what you are missing
But what you have in your life.
And all that you are given every single day
Is a gift of incredible kindness.

Life begins to become easier
The day there is the Understanding of peace.
That's when clarity begins to come in our lives.
Begin to understand not what you are missing
But what you have in your life.

That the greatest of all miracles is your existence.

Understanding

How important is today?
How important is the coming and going
Of each breath?
How important is to be conscious
Every single day.

Every single day
Can this be? It has to be.
Is it possible? Yes it is.
To know for yourself. It has to be.

I have seen it again and again and again
The heart touched.
That the dance with clarity,
That the dance with serenity,
The dance with peace is exquisite
And the music that accompanies it And the feeling…
Is even more exquisite.

To know for yourself
Every single day,
To gain every single day
To place in the cup
Inside the most valuable
Not the reasons
But understanding.
Can this be? It has to be.

Understanding.
Not explanations,
Do you carry with you
An understanding or an explanation?
You should be carrying understanding
Not an explanation.
To know for yourself.
This is all about understanding.

Perfect

What are you trying to solve?
What do you want?

That one thing that you have identified
And you think that it keeps changing
Then you haven't discovered your real want
Because the truest want that you have does not change.

That is its nature
That is its beauty.
It is not influenced be what happens around you
Because it's real

That this life
That this breath
That this existence
Is the sweetest thing
I will ever have.

That of all the things that I want
The one that is given to me the most freely
Is the most precious.
And all I have to do
All I have to do
Is accept it

Everyday that you are alive is perfect.
Open your eyes and see
See how beautiful this existence is
What a gift this is
What it means to exist.
Understanding.
Using the reason to realize
That there is so much more beauty
Than I can ever fathom
That there is so much more clarity
Than I can ever understand
And all I have to do
Is accept it.

Simple Wish

What is your expression of your existence?
Can you smile like you have never smiled before?
Not for someone else but for yourself
And wish peace upon your existence?

Whatever you think you are
And whoever you think you are
These little molecules that you are made of
Do not belong to you.

You have been given a gift.
To be conscious, conscious that you are alive
Conscious that you exist.
This is the most incredible dream
That has come true.
Most incredible wish anyone could ever wish
Has come true.

Let consciousness be your teacher
Let the process be of awakening everyday
With admiration and with the heart full
Because these are the possibilities
This is when you sound melodic.
Not a scratch but melodic.

Underneath the whole facade of this world
The simplest of wish
To be happy
And when it is fulfilled
It is.

The Ultimate

What do you think is the ultimate experience?
What?
Without being a rocket scientist, I would have to say
That the experience of the ultimate
Would be an ultimate experience.

What is the ultimate?
What is the ultimate?
The ultimate would be that power
That makes everything possible.
Powers it, moves it
In the whole universe.

I'm not going to try to convince you that there is a
Power that makes all this possible
Because any time
You have a question about this power
Look up, look down, look left, look right
And courtesy of something
All of this is being made possible.
Courtesy of something all of this
Is being made possible.

Why the wind blows
Why the earth rotates
How the earth came to be
Where the earth will end up.

It's fascinating that
That ultimate
That is everywhere right now
Is also within you.

Forget about
The fascination
Of the universe
You will never understand it.

But the fascinating thing for us is
Not understanding the universe.
But that which also powers the universe happens
to be within us right now
And this we can experience.

Why should we experience this?
Ah. This is where it gets really beautiful.
Because when you do
You get filled with peace
When you do
You are filled with clarity
When you do
You are filled with joy
When you do
This is when you experience

True Nature

Begin to understand
How important it is for you to know you!
Not about your likes and dislikes
But get to know the truest nature
That your true nature by very default
Is to be content.
When a human being is content
Everything falls into place
Everything falls into place
It's amazing!
No one is an enemy
Everyone is a friend
Courtesy towards everyone
How amazing is that?

All that falls into place
And when the person is not feeling
That contentment inside of them
The same human being becomes a monster
Both are there, the monster
And the true human being
Do you know about the true human being?

Because the true human being is truly beautiful
Beautiful, incredible, kindness is it's nature
To want and embrace peace everyday is it's thirst
It's want, it's desire.
The being hungers for contentment every day
Will never knowingly
Throw even an ounce of happiness away
Understands by the very nature,
The preciousness of this existence.

And the monster, is the monster.
Exactly opposite.

Who is governing the set of rules in your existence?
The human being or the monster?

Your true nature is to be content.
The focus has to be that for your existence
The focus has to be that
So that you may complete this journey
In dignity, in perfection
In beauty, in joy
And this at the end of the day
This is what you take with you.
