From Time Immemorial
In his web broadcast today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj spoke of how we can accomplish any goal, however daunting it may seem, if we tackle it one step at a time.
From time immemorial, humanity has searched for God. Yet, many fail to take the first step toward experiencing God because they believe it is impossible. How can we, as insignificant as we are, ever hope to attain God the Creator, we ask ourselves. This negative belief stops us in our tracks and keeps us from embarking on the journey Godward. Saints and spiritual Masters come into this world to remind us of life’s purpose and assure us that the task is possible and achievable. God is not far away. God is within us, and it is our birthright to know God. As with any large undertaking, the spiritual quest cannot be completed with one giant leap. Instead, it can be achieved by taking small daily steps toward our destination.
Referring to a memorable Buddhist parable, the spiritual Master explained how to break down large, overwhelming tasks into small, doable portions. Little by little, step by step, we must march toward our spiritual goal despite the obstacles and challenges that may come our way. On the spiritual path, this entails leading an ethical life and meditating daily and regularly to connect with the Light of God.
God is omnipresent, said Sant Rajinder Singh Ji. The Creator is in every particle, in every living creature. This concept is beyond human understanding, which is limited by the bounds of time and space. However, we must not wait until we fully comprehend God before embarking on our spiritual journey. The way forward unfolds slowly, with time, as we focus on our meditations. Regular meditation helps us still our body and mind so we can experience God’s love and Light. In this way, little by little and step by step, we will reach the goal of self-knowledge and God-realization.
