Inner Strength



Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September.
The United Nations General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. The theme of this year’s commemoration is “Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All.” In support of this international effort, The Prem Rawat Foundation produced a new video, Medicine for Peace, to help grow awareness that peace is possible for individuals across the planet. Please join the outreach campaign through their partnership program or by watching the new video below and sharing it. If you post the video via a social media outlet, use the hashtag #PeaceDay to join millions of people in supporting the cause of peace.







Peacepool will be hosting an event to celebrate Peace Day at the The Liner Hotel on Saturday September 23rd. The event begins at 12pm in the Pacific Lounge.
Free Admission everyone is welcome.






Peace—either you feel it in your life or you don’t feel it in your life. If you feel it in your life, enjoy it! If you don’t feel it in your life, find out how you can get to that peace. And that’s the only area where there is something to say: “How can you get to it?”

And the first step is, what is peace? What is this elusive thing that we are all trying to pursue? Is it an idea? You know, it’s like somebody who makes statues. Maybe they take a pencil and they draw their idea on a piece of paper, but that’s obviously not a statue—it’s just an idea.
And then they take the chisel and a hammer and a piece of marble that is the size of that statue that they want to be, and what do they do? They create a statue. Okay. But what is the process of creating the statue?
The process of creating the statue is to remove all the unwanted marble, so that what is left is the true expression of the artist, of what he really feels.


Could it be that peace is no different? That it is removing all those things that do not belong there, leaving only that that the intent of the artist has.
The questions that begin to form are, “Is what we are doing what we really want to do?” Because, what has gone away from peace? Why do you not think that the peace is a happening thing? The individual is missing from the equation of peace.

                 Peace is not social. It’s an individual…it is an individual phenomenon. And this is what has to be understood! That, if we want peace, we have to look at our own thirst, explore our own thirst for that peace.
This is what will drive the drive that is needed to find peace in our lives. And we search—because we, as human beings, we do not want these wars. We, as human beings, do not want this confusion. We, as human beings, don’t want all of this stuff. All we want is the simplicity.
– Prem Rawat



Peace begins with you. Simple as that: peace begins with you—you understanding who you are. It is no mistake what Socrates said, “Know thyself.” To know who you are.
– Prem Rawat

 

 

 

 

Peace Education Program

The purpose of the Peace Education Program (PEP) is to help participants discover their own inner resources—innate tools for living such as inner strength, choice, and hope—and the possibility of personal peace.
This is an innovative educational program, facilitated by volunteers, with a curriculum that consists of 10 videos, each focusing on a particular theme. These customized, interactive workshops are non-religious and non-sectarian. The content of each theme is based on excerpts from Prem Rawat’s international talks. The themes are: Peace, Appreciation, Inner Strength, Self-Awareness, Clarity, Understanding, Dignity, Choice, Hope, and Contentment.
You are invited to explore these resources and learn more about TPRF’s Peace Education Program. For further information on initiating a PEP workshop in your area, or other information, please send a request to TPRF, selecting “Peace Education Programs” as your subject.


















We associate ourselves with our name. 
But who are we? What are we? 
Is life really as complicated as it appears? 
The good and the bad, the person who's going through a crisis—is that really us, or are we something else?

   





 We are all caught in an incredible tornado of change. Everything around us is continuously in a state of change. Thoughts change, ideas change, and perceptions change. And likewise we change—all the while trying to prevent the changes.
In the middle of all these upheavals, could there be something that doesn’t alter? is it futile to be looking for that thing that doesn’t change. 







That's why It is perfectly natural for us to seek something in our lives called stability—to be able to recognise change and still retain the dignity of who we really are.



  








            
When you think about it should any of us really be feeling like, 'Oh my poor little life?' What prevents us feeling at ease with ourselves? Why do we not feel that positivity in our lives?  This is because we do not know ourselves, we haven’t learned how to appreciate the true part of our nature.





Focusing attention on their inner strength helps an individual find greater ease, clarity, and freedom from those things that have a negative impact in their every day lives.  
 
So, how do we make a difference in our lives? 
This time, it’s us. We can really learn how to trust yourselves.







As individuals living under increasingly stressful situations finding ways to cope with everyday problems becomes a very real necessity. At our informal meetings you will have the opportunity to explore the possibility and discover inner resources — tools for living such as inner strength, choice, appreciation.
