Discover Your Inner Fountain of Youth
Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj
As we become older and start worrying about aging, many in today’s world try to keep their youth through many means. They may do physical exercises, eat healthier, or undergo medical procedures to reverse the signs of aging on their face or body. Can meditation help us stay young?
Medical research is exploring ways to help us live longer and enhance our life. People are looking for a magic pill that would help us live another ten, twenty, or more years. Why? Because people feel that youth is the time of great power, beauty, strength, and courage. Our youth is a time in which we feel we can do practically anything that we want.
As we get older, we start to realize, “Oh, I can’t run as fast as I used to,” or “I’m not able to lift the same amount of weights as before!” All of a sudden we realize we can no longer do what we used to do.
In our youth, even if something cannot be done, we exercise and work hard to try to do it anyway. That is the time of strength. When we see our ability and strength passing away, it becomes difficult. That is the crisis most people have in their forties, fifties, sixties, or seventies. They wonder what is happening to them.
This stage comes to everyone because the aging process is a part of life that each will one day experience. It is not only for one person. We are all going to hit the forties, the fifties, the sixties, the seventies, the eighties, the nineties, or the hundreds, and the physical body is going to start to deteriorate. We need to be able to deal with this situation in the best possible manner.
Today, we may find through advances in medicine and technology that life seems to be a little easier than it used to be for the people who came one hundred, two hundred, or three hundred or more years ago. The human life span is also increasing due to better medications, our improved knowledge of what to eat, and the right way of living. We are learning how to live a more fulfilling, happier, and longer life. Yet still, we must ultimately reach the golden years of our life.
Can You Rejuvenate Your Youth?
Is there a way to rejuvenate our youth? While doctors are struggling to find a magic pill to do this by chemical means, there is a natural means of restoring new life. We can find this magic potion to prolong life, add vitality, and bring bubbling joy to our years.
Each wants to feel buoyant at all times. We do not want to be depressed, in sorrow, or in pain. We want to be happy and blissful. There is a way out of all the sorrow in which we find ourselves.
Meditation Can Help You Discover Your Inner Fountain of Youth
There is a fountain of youth within us that can be found through meditation. When we take a dip in the inner fountain, we find that who we are inside, as soul, is eternal. Soul is always youthful and everlasting. Souls do not age. Thus, we are transformed and begin to identify not only with our physical body, which is subject to age, but with our spiritual self that is ageless.
Whether we are middle-aged or aged, we are transformed through the power of meditation. It leads us to find our true self as soul, which is ageless and forever young.
We will not need to depend on scientists to find the magic pill to bring youth to our life. Through meditation, we will find ourselves evergreen, and we can live in a perpetual state of happiness and joy.

Sometimes, we actively pray for help and receive it, but there are many times when we do not even ask for help, and help comes anyway.
These are reminders to us that we are never alone. Unbeknownst to us, the unseen Hand of God is always with us, guiding us through the rough waters of life.
The ocean of spiritual consciousness is an ocean of love. It is hard for us to understand this, because we as human beings think of love in a limited and narrow sense. The love we think of as love is but a reflection of a much higher love, a divine love. It is an all-embracing, fulfilling, satisfying love that pulls close to its heart all that exists.
To get the benefits of meditation we need to have patience. We may not see the results right away, but we should do our job and meditate accurately. Then, one day, the results will appear. The seed of our soul will sprout. Suddenly, vistas of Light will open for us within, and we will embark on the inner journey. Through constant effort, prayer, and patience, we will find success in our meditations.

We tend to attribute all that we are and all that we have done to our own individual efforts. If we could have a bird’s-eye view of Creation, we would discover the fallacy of this way of thinking. A deeper understanding of life tells us that God created this entire universe. It is God who created humanity and all forms of life.
One of the biggest keys to success in meditation is our ability to still the mind. Yet, anyone who has tried to meditate will attest to the challenges of this undertaking. Let us take a look at the factors that interfere with keeping the mind still and explore how we can minimize and eliminate these distractions.
