The Global Pandemic: A Time for Spiritual Growth

May 16, 2021

Today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji spoke of the difficulties and challenges that the global pandemic has brought about. He called on us to draw on our inner strength and to have faith in God, strong in the knowledge that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

We are going through a very difficult period when billions around the world have been impacted emotionally, physically, and economically by the virus. However, let us not succumb to this virus, the spiritual Master said, drawing from examples in history to remind us that humanity has always triumphed in the face of challenges. We should see how this challenge offers us an opportunity to grow. We can strengthen our relationships with loved ones, and use the extra time that we would have spent commuting and traveling to broaden our horizons and skills.This is also a time to extend a helping hand to others and alleviate their suffering and burdens.

It is a time to realize that we are all connected and are part of the great family of God. This realization brings us to a state where the pains of others become our pains, and we reach out to serve each other with love. One of the greatest opportunities this global pandemic has given us is extra time to sit in meditation to focus on knowing ourselves, recognize the purpose of life, and connect with God’s love and Light. As we do so, we experience the power of God’s love, and we find the strength that we need to overcome any difficulty. Sant Rajinder Singh Ji advised: Let us home in on this strength, connect with the divine Power, and let it permeate every pore of our being. Let us lean on this Power to overcome the challenge before us.
