Transforming Lives Through Meditation

Weed Out the Distractions: A talk by Sant Rajinder Singh Ji
January 17, 2019

This evening, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji used the analogy of gardening to help us understand how the distractions of life that keep us from knowing our soul and knowing God are like weeds in a garden. The more we focus our attention on these activities, the more we nurture the weeds, and the less nourishment we provide to the soul. When the soul is nourished we can take steps toward the soul’s oneness with God, which is our main purpose for being alive. For this to happen, we need to find time on a regular basis to sit in meditation so that our soul can commune with God’s love. Additionally, he said, we should be introspective and focus on improving those arenas in our life that make it difficult for our soul to love God. Let us take a closer look at our lives, he advised, and weed out the superfluous activities that add unnecessary complexity to our lives. This will free up our time to nourish our soul. In so doing, we remove the weeds in our garden that keep us from loving God.

Meet Life’s Challenges with Equipoise: Lisle, Illinois
January 15, 2019

Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj’s topic on Tuesday was the importance of remaining calm and peaceful no matter what life sends our way. He said often we observe how different people respond differently when faced with the same circumstances. Some remain calm, while others get angry when life does not meet their expectations. It is important that we gain a better understanding of how our behavior and reactions impact the world around us. The question is how can we can take steps to ensure we are contributing to a more peaceful environment for all? When faced with the unexpected, we might react with harsh words and actions, making life difficult for everyone, especially ourselves. However, responding calmly to the situation not only makes it easier for us and all around us, it contributes to a better resolution of the situation. Thus, our challenge is to learn to deal calmly with the unexpected in life. To prepare ourselves for the unexpected, it is important we understand that things are going to happen in life which are contrary to our expectations. Meditation, he said, plays an integral role in our ability to stay calm under all circumstances. When we meditate, we experience states of stillness and calm within. Then we begin to reflect this inner stillness through our outer senses. Additionally, through meditation, we gain a better understanding of the oneness of all God’s creation. We begin to see others as an extension of our own being. As a result, our relationships are bound to be peaceful. The evening ended with meditation.

Is There a Love Greater Than Any in This World?

Outer loves are but a small reflection of the great love that exists in our soul. If we multiply the greatest love we have known in this outer world by tenfold or a hundredfold, we may have some inkling of the love that awaits us within.
