"The Pursuit of Happiness" in Athens Greece
In his spiritual discourse at the Dais Cultural and Sports Center in Athens, Greece, this afternoon, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj shared that true happiness comes in realizing the gifts that God has given us, and from finding our closeness with God. True happiness lies within ourselves, and comes from experiencing the stability of God’s presence in our lives.
The spiritual Master described the beauty, love and light of the inner spiritual journey that culminates in our realization of our true nature, and our soul’s realization of God. Meditation, he said, is the process by which we embark on this journey. Living at the level of our physical senses, all we experience is of this physical world outside. Through meditation, he said, we are able to take our attention away from the world outside and focus it within ourselves. As we do so, our soul is able to journey into regions that are more ethereal and spiritual than our physical world. They occur concurrently with the physical plane, and we can tune into them with our attention.
As we sit in silence, we see the divine Light and hear the Celestial music, the music that God is playing within each and every one of us. This experience helps us realize that God is within us, and we awaken to the reality of our human existence. Embracing our own true nature, we also embrace each other, having realized that we are all parts of God. Leaving the world of duality, we then enter the world of oneness, which paves the way Godward, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji said.
