There Is a Poem Within This Poem


There is a poem
within this poem
and I want you to find it.

If you say YES, you will.
If you say NO, you won't.

That's how simple
the whole thing is.

But if you look,
you will not see it.
If you listen, you will hear
only the sound of a cello in the distance.

Think of this poem, if you like,
as what remains after everyone is gone,

the perfume of your first lover,
remembering you, with a slow smile.

Why Is This Woman Smiling?


1. Did she just get a job promotion?
2. Did her boyfriend just propose to her?
3. Did she just get her nose pierced?
4. Did she just listen to Prem Rawat in Barcelona on April 3?

(HINT: It's not 1, 2 or 3)

You Are Not a Philosophy


"You are not a philosophy. You can think about philosophy, you can listen to philosophy, you can comment about philosophy, but you are not a philosophy. You are something living, existing, breathing, changing, evolving. A human being. You're not a theory. You're not a possibility. You exist." - Maharaji, 4/24/11, Buenos Aires

TPRF Receives Highest Rating


Charity Navigator, considered America's premier evaluator of US non-profit organizations, has once again awarded TPRF (The Prem Rawat Foundation) their highest rating of 4 stars.

The Charity Navigator rating system includes an analysis of how efficiently organizations use their support and how well they are growing their services over time.

This is the third consecutive Four Stars award for TPRF.

Ken Berger, President of Charity Navigator, wrote to Linda Pascotto, President of TPRF, that "Only 13% of the charities we rate have received at least 3 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that The Prem Rawat Foundation consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way, and outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator differentiates The Prem Rawat Foundation from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust."

That TPRF consistently receives such a high rating is largely due to the capable and generous donation of time and expertise by volunteers on several continents.

This unusual level of support is key to the Foundation's ability to keep overhead costs at a minimum and efficiency at such a high level.

More and more people are becoming aware of TPRF's unique work of addressing the essential human needs of food, water, and peace and are trusting TPRF to use their donations effectively and efficiently.

posting of mine
just published on the
Words of Peace Global
It's all about
a moment
most of us experience
when we think too much
or inaccurately
about what's really happening,
a trick of the mind
in which we momentarily
the beautiful place
of ease and love
