Deep within each of us is immeasurable joy—joy so profound and exhilarating that mere words are inadequate to describe its awesome nature. It is interesting to note we seldom allow ourselves to experience this level of joy. “Why?” You might ask. The answer is simple—we have long ago been indoctrinated to believe immeasurable joy is unreal. Thus, we have stopped going deep within to experience what is a birthright. However, we can learn to recapture this birthright.
There is no cost for this deep joy, for this wonderful experience of love, and fulfillment that is inside each of us. There is NO catch! It is not a religion or a belief system. It is a connection. It is a simple, yet profound experience that each one of us can achieve. We can achieve it, if we set aside all the old prohibitions, religious rhetoric and indoctrinations.
I am grateful to have retained my ability to experience this level of joy in spite of the pushes and pulls of society’s edicts, and indoctrinations.
Have you ever felt an inner thirst for something? Maybe you don’t have a name for it, but you ‘just’ know that something is missing in your life, or that there has to be something more than what you are experiencing now. You might have had a dream about it. Perhaps you have a name for it and you feel that your thirst is for happiness, or love, or meaning, or inner peace, or fulfillment or joy.
This inner experience can quench that thirst! It has been quenching my thirst for over sixty years. It has brought such joy and love and gratitude into my life with my children, significant other and friends that it is hard to describe in familial language. It can be felt with every breath.
This experience is called Knowledge—Carl Jung called it Universal knowledge. This Knowledge is available to everyone—not just those, who are highly educated, have more money or travel the world—everyone has the ability to partake of this Universal knowledge.
Prem Rawat, also known as Maharaji, born in India teaches the art of turning our attention from the outside to the inside. It is a practical way to focus within, and to access what is already there, waiting for us to connect. He started addressing audiences at age three and gave his first published address at age four. At age eight, he started presenting his message of peace through the India subcontinent. At thirteen he was invited to speak in London and Los Angeles. To date he has spoken to more than nine million people in over 250 cities and 50 countries—people come to him to hear about that incredible place within and the possibilities of becoming connected.
There is a period of preparation that may take from three to five months before learning the techniques. The preparation includes viewing video materials, “The Key, ’ which can be ordered online. There are six Keys. The first five are ten hours of a presentation by Maharaji. www.tprf.org You may wish to read the booklet and watch the video, “Discovering More. ”
After watching the first five keys, you can ask to be shown the techniques of connecting to the Knowledge, which are taught in the sixth key in a special session. If you are interested in entering the Keys process visit www.thekeys. maharaji.net.
Here are a few messages that Maharaji wants you to know.
“That which we are looking for is within us. We may call it God, we may call it happiness, we may call it peace, or we may call this true love. All of these things are names of only one thing. And this one thing can be found within. ”
“You have been given the gift of life. You have been given a treasure within you. Why don’t you address your own treasure? Why don’t you address your innermost feeling?”
“What I offer is as practical as a glass of water to a thirsty person in the desert. I offer a way of connecting with the peace and contentment that is within each of us, and I call that Knowledge. It is like the bridge from the outside to the inside. Knowledge is not meant to fix anything, it is for those who, out of their free will, want to enjoy peace within them. This is as practical as it can ever get. If a person wants that, I can help. ”
“Within you is the most amazing feeling you can possibly imagine. All that you look for, that you have looked for all your life, has always been right inside of you. When you can look inside, you will find the joy that you have always desired. This is a gift you have, and I can show you a way to get in touch with it. ”
“I wish you well, and I can make it possible for you. - the limitless joy in your life. That’s the possibility. Not something small. ”
