The full quote from Prem Rawat is as follows:

"Some people say, In this big universe, you're just a speck of dust.
You may be a speck of dust.
But oh, what a speck of dust.
In this speck of dust, the infinite and the finite are fused.
And you are the threshold of the two.
Here, the mortal being comes as close
 as it possibly can to the immortal.
The same power that drives the universe breathes us.
We have been chosen to be the platform for life."
