Experience the True Friend through Meditation
Today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj presided over the 23rd Global Meditation in Place online event, addressing tens of thousands and shedding light on humanity’s quest for happiness.
As we look at our lives, he said, we find that many people around the globe are lonely. While we live in a technologically advanced time, where devices and media electronically connect us to each other, ironically, we feel more alone and more isolated from our fellow beings. As a result, there are increasing numbers among us who experience loneliness, which in turn causes depression and disillusionment with life.
Saints and mystics remind us, said the spiritual Master, that our disillusionment with life comes about because we are seeking support and friends in the world outside, where everyone is doing their best to survive. Unbeknownst to many of us, we have a friend who is always there and who loves us tremendously. This friend is God, the Ocean of all bliss, peace, and joy from whence we originate.
God resides within us, he said. To enjoy God’s friendship, we need to experience God, and this happens as we learn the technique of meditation. As we travel into the inner spiritual regions by focusing our attention within, we connect with God’s love. The more we experience God’s love, the more we begin to experience states of bliss and joy, and we begin to lead a life devoid of loneliness, pain, and suffering. At the conclusion of the program, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji led the global online audience in meditation.
