Crossing the Great Ocean of Life
Our true essence is spirit or soul. The soul is a part of God that migrated away from God eons ago and has been yearning to return to its Source. This human existence is the opportunity for our soul to find its way back. The journey to return Home is the journey of the spirit, or what is known as the spiritual journey.
The mechanism to embark and advance on this journey is meditation. For success in this endeavor, we need more than just self-help books or demonstrations of the meditation technique. We need the help and guidance of a spiritual adept who is familiar with the intricacies of the journey and who can protect us from the distractions and pitfalls along the way. We need to experience for ourselves the treasures that lie within. As we meditate, our soul connects with the love and Light of God and is nourished, giving it strength.
We must put in a sincere and earnest effort, meditating regularly and diligently, so we can take steady steps Godward. Life is short, and time does not wait for anyone. It is up to us to make the most of the breaths we have been given so that our soul can cross the great ocean of life and realize its oneness with God.
