When we drop a pebble in the water, the ripples fan out far from the initial one. Similarly, the effect of anger can fan out far after the thought. It may come back to us years later.

Transforming Lives Through Meditation
April Snow Showers Bring May Flowers
This afternoon, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj addressed a packed Main Hall at the Science of Spirituality International Meditation Center as he delivered the first Sunday spiritual discourse after returning from his tours. Commenting on the surprise snow showers that fell in the Chicagoland area this morning, he spoke of how we have the choice in life to derive happiness from situations that come our way, or to be miserable because of them. It is all a question of our understanding of life.
If our understanding is not right, we stand to be perturbed by everything that happens around us that does not meet our expectations. Developing right understanding is the key to leading life in a manner in which it should be led. When our understanding is right, then our thoughts and thinking patterns will be right. When our thoughts are right, then our words and our actions follow suit; they will be peaceful and calming, and will bring joy and happiness to us and all around us.
Tap into the Divine Harmony: Wiesbaden, Germany
Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj returned this afternoon to the RheinMain Congress Center to deliver the second spiritual discourse of his visit to Wiesbaden, Germany. Speaking to the thousands of attendees, he addressed the turmoil that surrounds us today. The spiritual Master emphasized that it is how we deal with the turmoil that impacts how we lead our lives. When faced with turmoil, we have a choice to let stress and anger overtake us, or to take things in stride and look to God to take care of the situation. Anger, he said, causes disharmony – within us, with our loved ones, and with others who surround us.
Disharmony brings pain and additional stress into our lives, and as such does not serve us well. The key to leading peaceful and happy lives, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji said, is to learn how to live in harmony with everything. Through meditation we tap into the great harmony of the Divine that reverberates through all of Creation. As we do so, we can experience the peace and harmony that we seek. Concluding his visit, the spiritual Master bid “Auf Wiedersehen,” (until we meet again), to all.
Declare Independence from Worry
In the last few years there has been a great interest among doctors, researchers, and people in the field of psychology concerning the effect worry has on health. Worry is one of the causes of stress that can, in turn, create stress-related illnesses. It is interesting that the word “worry” comes from old English and originally meant to choke or strangle. If we think about the original meaning of the word “worry,” we find that it accurately describes what worrying does to us.
