Change is a constant in life, and when change brings pain and suffering, we feel burdened and broken. Today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj spoke of a protective shield that can envelop us with grace, love, and compassion to help us navigate the ups and downs of life. Irrespective of trials and tribulations, he said, we should stay firm and focused on life’s purpose of self-realization and God-realization.
We must maintain equilibrium, lead our lives with the principle of “Sweet is Thy will,” and turn toward God. The spiritual Master drew from the sublime poetry of Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj, in which the poet-saint spoke of a “sea of protection.” What is that sea? It is an ocean of Grace—a sea of Grace. Saints advise us to have absolute faith in God and know that God is our protector. To realize this truth and strengthen our faith in God, we need to first experience God and this happens as we go within through meditation.
