Find Time for God
Today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj spoke of our relationship with God, of the gift of this human existence, and of how we can make the most of our time to fulfill life’s true purpose.
Our soul, which is a part of God, has been separated from God for eons. When we received the gift of this human birth, we were given the golden opportunity for our soul to return to its Source. Yet very few among us make use of this rare chance. Living at the level of the physical senses, we take this world to be all that there is. We think about God when we have material needs to be fulfilled. We pray with love and respect, hoping that our prayers will be answered. We search in the outer world, undertaking arduous pilgrimages and performing various rites and rituals, wondering why God cannot be found.
Today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj described our relationship with God and reminded us of the Creator’s unconditional love for us. God does not reside in structures made of brick and mortar; God resides within the human heart, within us, said the spiritual Master. God is within reach and can be experienced by each of us if we look in the right direction. We can experience God’s love and Light when, through the process of meditation, we withdraw our attention from the outer world and focus it at the third eye, the gateway to the inner spiritual regions. Through this gateway, our soul can embark on a journey into the inner spiritual regions and commune with God. Just like a loving parent waiting for a child to return, God is waiting for child-humanity to return to its true Home. Despite the myriad distractions and demands on our time, let us resolve to find time each day to experience God’s love and Light. Let us find time to express our soul’s love for God each day through meditation.
