Practice Makes Perfect

Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj

September 24, 2020

For spiritual growth, we need to perfect the practice of meditation. Many people will learn how to meditate but not practice it to the point of perfecting it. We do not want to just learn the technique and say, “Oh, that is very nice,” and then not do it again. To perfect the ability of withdrawing our attention, we need to practice it daily.

It is not easy to retrain our attention to focus within. It has been in the habit of focusing outside. The meditation practice is simple; it is trying to retrain our attention to meditate accurately and focus within that is difficult.

To meditate accurately does not mean that we only sit with our body still while our mind is running amok. We need to sit with a still mind, totally focused on keeping our gaze fixed in what appears in front of us with our eyes closed.

This means unwavering attention with no thoughts. In this way we can gain the practice needed to stay focused.

It is by staying alert and focused that we can see the inner Light and the various inner vistas waiting for us within. They are there, but we fail to observe them because we are distracted by thoughts. If we keep our mind still, we will see the glorious treasures awaiting us within.

By the daily, regular, and accurate practice of meditation, we become more adept. Finally, it becomes a natural part of our lives and we can do it easily and effectively.

In this video clip, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj encourages us to sit in meditation daily. He compares this regular practice to the value of watering seeds regularly when we want them to sprout.
