Realize Our Connectedness

By Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj

The following exercise is an analogy that can give us a sense of connectedness with all life. Picture a drop of water. Picture a stream flowing close by. The drop is pulled into the stream and merges into it. The stream enters the ocean as your soul connects with the ocean of life.

Saints and spiritual Masters have spoken of the merging of the soul with the eternal ocean. Because our language is inadequate to describe an experience beyond the intellect, they have resorted to analogies. Thus, a common motif is the image of the drop merging with the ocean or a ray of light merging with the sun. Where there were two, there is now only one.

Realization of the soul precedes union with God. We must first identify with the soul instead of with our mind and body. It is only when we can experience our soul that we can refocus our attention from the doorway of the world to the doorway of the spiritual regions. The soul can then travel through the spiritual regions to merge with God.

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.

What is Our True Nature?

There are two ways to view ourselves. The first is to view ourselves primarily as a body and mind. When we see ourselves in this manner, we say that we are a mind and body that “have a soul.” The second is to see ourselves primarily as a soul.

Science of Spirituality

Science has always sought to explain the unexplainable, solve the unsolvable, and know the unknowable. Scientists devote themselves to find answers to the mysteries of life. The human thirst for knowledge has driven people to explore all aspects of existence to know why and how everything came to be.

Around the world, people are concerned about the weather. A large chunk of time is spent on the local weather reports. Forecasters tell everyone what the weather will be the next day.
