We Are Not Alone. God Is Right Here.
At some point in life, we feel the sting of loneliness. During these times, we find there is no one to support us, and we become despondent, succumbing to worry and anxiety. Helplessly, we search for an anchor to help us weather the storms of life.
In his discourse today in Lisle, Illinois, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj said the scriptures of all faiths tell us that God is always with us, supporting us. We can always turn to God, yet we still feel lonely. Why is this? It is because we are accustomed to living at the level of our physical senses. The spiritual Master explained that our physical eyes only see what is made of matter. And our ears only hear a certain band of frequencies in this world. All of our senses are limited.
God, however, is all consciousness. God is spirit and cannot be experienced by the physical senses. To experience God, we must follow in the footsteps of the saints and spiritual Masters who have come in all times and ages. Each of them found God in silence. When we withdraw from the chatter of the outer world, sit in silence, and still the body and mind, we can transcend physical body consciousness and embark on an inner journey. We can then commune with God and experience God’s presence for ourselves. The more we sit in silence and focus within, the closer we get to God and to fulfilling life’s purpose of merging our soul back in the Creator.
As we experience God’s presence, we can anchor ourselves in the stability of God’s love. Life’s challenges no longer pull us down. Instead, we ride the wave knowing “this too shall pass.” The pangs of loneliness dissipate when we know, with certainty, that we are never alone.
