The Power of Positive Thinking
In his web broadcast today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj spoke of the power of positive thinking and its importance on the spiritual path.
The spiritual Master described how our thoughts determine the direction of our life. Every word we speak or action we perform is first inspired by the thoughts we have. Thoughts are powerful and their vibrations affect not only us, but our environment and those we meet as well. To nurture positive thoughts, we need to gain right understanding of this life. Right understanding generates right thoughts, which, in turn, make our words and actions right.
What is right understanding? It is realizing that we are not the body but a soul, a part of God. Our soul is conscious and full of God’s love and Light. Just as we can see and hear the sights and sounds of the outer world, our soul can perceive the Light and Sound of God within. The purpose of this existence is to experience ourselves as soul and to realize God, he said. Engrossed in the activities of this outer world, a world of illusion, we remain unaware of our true purpose in this human birth. It is only when we experience God’s Light within through meditation that we truly gain right understanding.
