Prem Rawat Doing A Total Embrace
This Visions International short film was sold on a Video CD distributed at Élan Vital "events" and was produced in 1996. The visuals are of Prem Rawat posing, simpering, sexily closing his eyes and looking from side to side meaningfully as if he was a model in a magazine for gays while he talks about the "One Thing" that you can embrace without shame. He poses for the camera but in his mind he sees himself as Brad Pitt or George Clooney and not the Toad of Malibu Toad that he actually resembles. And rememebr what he says about this:
"The way I see it there's a game and there's a lotta people in this world and they're playing a game and the innocent child arrives in this world and that child, he or she, is plugged into the game. Does the child, that the baby, there's the person wanna play the game? The is no option, everybody's playing the game and you have to play the game too. What is the game? It's a very different kind of game, in fact, last night we were talking about this game a little bit, a different perspective of it and there are people and they look at the magazines and they wanna look like the people in the magazines. You know, the magazines go out, they hire these models" - Prem Rawat
There are visuals linking his main meaningless statements:
- "that one love"
- "Is that one thing dear to you?"
- "Here lies my miracle."
- "Admire the glory of existence"
"What is that one thing in your life that makes all the difference? One thing. Is it not that feeling that you carry within you? That one joy that you carry within you. That one love that you carry within you. That one hope that you carry within you. That one understanding that you carry within you. That one beauty that you carry within you. Just that one thing that you carry within you. That makes all the difference in this world. And is that one thing dear to you? Because without that oceans would be emnpty, clouds would have no rain, rainbows would be colourless. The shine of the moon would only be a reflection being bounced back off the sun. Without that there would be no beauty, there would be no understanding of beauty. Without that there would be no appreciation. There would be no meaning to this lfe. Those are the blessed ones who can in their life humbly accept the blessings that they have been given. Humbly to be able to say "Yes, yes I breathe and I'm thankful for every breath, every single breath that comes in and out of me." That here lies my miracle, that it is my promise my obligation to this beauty that has, for a little while, lent itself to me. Let me enjoy this time that I have on this earth. Let me admire the glory of existence, that one thing within me that I can embrace with no shame. A total embrace."
