Giving Back to the Earth

Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj

June 30, 2020

Giving back to our planet means that when we take food from it, we sustain the land so that it can continue to give food. It means that if we take a tree, we plant another. If means that when we take its resources, we provide for ways of renewing them. It means that we use the planet without turning it into a garbage dump for our waste. It means putting in place systems that keep the earth healthy and alive, rather than destroying it. It means finding ways in which our resources can be sustained for millennia to come, and not using them all up in one generation. If we were to give back to the earth, we would find the earth would richly reward us with resources for millions of years to come.

The vegetarian diet symbolizes our respect for the earth. Less use of resources is required to be a vegetarian than to be a meat-eater. It takes more land and more energy to produce a diet for meat-eaters than for vegetarians. We can conserve earth’s resources by living on a vegetarian diet. It is does not require violence in taking the life of our younger brothers and sisters.

The Magic of Spiritual Love

Spirituality it is not a rigid meditation in which we cut ourselves off from people in our family and community or life. Rather, spirituality is immersing ourselves into the divine love that is our true nature.

Meditation is Easy

During the time of meditation, we merely put our thoughts of the world and our problems in one drawer and close it. Then, we open the drawer of meditation and concentrate only on that.

Father’s Day

As we think about honoring our fathers on this day, let us also think about honoring our Universal Father and Mother, God, who created our fathers. The best way to do this is to remember and be thankful for the gifts we have received.
