The Paradox of Total Enjoyment
Have you ever watched a really great movie and, as you're watching it, you are saying to yourself "I can't wait to watch this again", even though you are watching it NOW. Moved by how absolutely awesome the movie is (but not having the words to describe what you're feeling), you translate your WOW experience into thinking to yourself that you can't wait to see it again. Sounds crazy, no?
I am having a similar experience here in Amaroo.
Listening to Prem Rawat has been astounding these past few days and often challenging to take in all at once, massive as the scope of his communication is.
The little frame I put around his message is the "capsule", as he's been saying, of a much deeper story going on -- a story that has a lot to do with going beyond limitations and opening up to a much more glorious life, one that can never be understood with the mind, only the "heart" -- a kind of internal divining rod much less about describing things than it is about dancing. Not yearning for freedom, but enjoying the freedom that is already there.A 2-Minute Amaroo Video Excerpt

Inspiration, Past and Present
While it is absolutely true that the past is over, the future is yet to come and NOW IS ALL THERE IS, sometimes it's inspiring to reflect on sweet moments of inspiration. Here are some from Prem Rawat's five-day Amaroo event in Australia last September.December 15, 2015

The Amaroo Diaries: Part 1
NOTE: I just found this diary entry of mine, written three years ago at Prem Rawat's Amaroo event -- a good reminder about the feeling of being in that very special place. Hope to see you there, in September.
Greetings from my tent at Amaroo. It's 9:10 PM and the jet lag is setting in, so if I fall asleep in the middle of this post, you will know why.
Today was a day of unpacking, settling in and just walking around with nowhere special to go. Seems like everywhere I went, I just happened to meet the right people at the right time without making any extra effort -- kind of like we were all actors in a play that required no script to know our cues.
Amaroo is the kind of place where it's easy to realize that everything is perfect just the way it is -- that there's no need to move any faster or slower than the rate at which you are already moving.
There's no hurry to get anywhere because you have already arrived.
One woman, at lunch, after sharing her bread and cheese with me, said a very interesting thing which is still ringing true eight hours later -- as the crickets, outside my tent, call to each other like they've being doing for millions of years.
She said that one thing she loves about being at Amaroo is that she moves at her own pace without the need to get anywhere special -- that wherever she is just happens to be the perfect place at the perfect time.
This, to me, describes at least a little of the impact of Prem Rawat's teaching.
It's all about being. Being who you are. Being where you are. Being present to the moment with whatever is happening.
Being rooted in the knowledge that peace is within you and that it's not only possible to be in this peace, but it's natural and easy, simplifies the whole game of life.
Looking inside replaces looking ahead.
Oh, by the way, even though I registered months ago for Amaroo, my name is not on the seating list. I waited on line and asked the seating lady, but she informed me I was not on the list and have no seat for tomorrow. At least that's the way it appears at the moment. We shall see in the morning....July 07, 2012
