With a long and colorful history, the Warner Theatre has hosted everything from vaudeville acts to Frank Sinatra. On July 15th, this famous theatre in the heart of America's capital ushered in nearly 1,900 people who had been waiting to hear another distinguished guest, Prem Rawat.
Here are some excerpts from his talk:
You need to focus in your life. The question is, do you focus in your life? As human beings, we are not focused at all. And the consequence? We are all over the place. Destroying has become our forte. Destruction has become our forte. If destruction becomes our forte, are we destroying the time that we have on the face of this earth? 25,550 days — it’s not a lot. And where is the focus?
The question becomes, is the focus to have that joy in this life? Is the focus to be content, to be fulfilled? Or is the focus on bewilderment? What do you entertain as a thought, every single day? Gratitude? Or, ‘I wonder what’s next?’ You have both possibilities.
You have the possibility of being in a place where you entertain that one singular, beautiful thought of gratitude, of fulfillment. Or, you have the possibility of bewilderment. Bewilderment will not bring you gratification. Never has, never will. Knowing, feeling and experiencing will.
