What is Living a Spiritual Life

Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj

 

March 25, 2020

Living a spiritual life begins with a yearning. Somewhere in the midst of our busy lives a small voice from within tells us that there is something missing in our lives. We feel that all that we have gained and amassed—wealth, possessions, name and fame, honors, and connections— have not brought us the fulfillment we seek.

Sometimes in moments of great pain caused either by illness, ignominy, poverty, or loss of a loved one, we also feel that something is missing from our lives.

This small voice is like a spark that over time turns into a flame of yearning to know the purpose behind our life. We begin to question our place in the universe, the existence of soul, and the existence of God. When we do not find the answers, the flames of the fire are further fanned, and an intense passion grows in us to find the truth.

The path of yearning is a road that starts with that small spark. The fulfillment of that yearning is what is called leading a spiritual life.

Reading books and listening to lectures can point the way, but the actual proof of spirituality can only come when we experience it for ourselves through meditation.

The Power of Loving-kindness

Part of our spiritual progress is based on developing a kind spirit. To do this, we need to put ourselves in the shoes of others. It means feeling the joys and pains of others. We can ask ourselves if the words we say to others are the words we want others to say to us.

Why Do We Need to Empower Our Soul?

The soul has become lost in the world of mind, matter, and illusion. Empowering the soul means that we withdraw the power that the mind and senses have on us so that our soul can instead control and guide our life.
