Focusing on Our Goal
Today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj spoke on the importance of reaching our spiritual goal of experiencing God. We should not lose sight of this goal, he said. Referring to a set of verses from the poetry of Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj, the spiritual Master explained that our soul has endured a long separation from God and yearns to reunite with the Creator.
What is our true identity? Are we a physical body searching for a spiritual experience—or are we spiritual beings undergoing a physical experience? Herein lies the secret to finding God.
We are all souls, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji said. When we receive this human birth, it is an opportunity to experience the love of God. Right now, we live at the level of the senses and only experience that which is made of matter. To experience the love of God, we need to be spiritually conscious. We can reach God-consciousness through meditation. Experiencing God’s love renders us oblivious to the attractions and distractions of the outer world. We then embrace a life of oneness, he said, melding seamlessly into the fabric of humanity just as sugar readily dissolves in milk.
