World Environment Day

Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj

June 5, 2020

There is a perfect balance in nature. The planet, the environment, and all life are part of a living, interdependent system. Seen from the proper perspective, there is no division or duality. Life appears to be a single unit. It is a living, conscious entity, formed by the hands of the Creator and animated by God’s life breath. Today, we see that the perfect balance of nature that has maintained life for millions of years is threatened by the very technology that has transformed the modern world.

Sant Rajinder Singh science spiritualityEvery day poses new threats to the environment. The air, water, and land are polluted. The ozone layer protecting the earth is endangered. Concern for earth’s ecology is not limited to one country or part of the world; it is a global problem.

If our planet, with its interdependent ecological systems, is to survive, we have to live in harmony with creation. We need to develop respect for our environment and must not ignore the claims and contributions of even the tiniest of creatures. On World Environment Day, let us each think of how we can take steps to restore and preserve the balance and ecology of our planet.

There is another way to understand the word “ecology.” It can also refer to our home or dwelling place as the physical body that God has made. The indweller of this house is the soul. We have a responsibility to maintain and preserve the purity and beauty of the soul and its dwelling place.

As we gain awareness of how pollution affects the outer world, we can understand how it affects our inner self. Just as nature can be restored to its original beauty, we can also restore our inner self, and we can put into practice methods to preserve the natural beauty of our soul. The technique of meditation is a simple solution that can help us improve the ecology of our soul.

If we can turn our attention from the world outside to the inner realms, through the process of meditation, we will find that we are soul and will realize God who is within us.

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.
