The Spirit of Generosity
Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj spoke on the spirit of generosity associated with December, discussing how we can inculcate it in our lives by experiencing God within ourselves. This is the month of giving, of sharing, and of caring; and it is in giving that we receive. For when we give of ourselves, we receive the blessings of God. Let us be on the giving end rather than the receiving end of life. Let us become instruments of God’s bounty and grace, he said.
Elaborating on how we can lead our lives in a spirit of sharing and generosity, the spiritual Master said that we share only when we care. And we care only when we realize that everyone is a part of us. This realization sets in when we find our connection with the Creator through the process of meditation.
In meditation, we realize our true nature as soul and experience God’s power in the form of the Light of God within. We are uplifted to regions of bliss and happiness. When we realize that the same Divine power is also in others, we automatically recognize that we are all one; that we are all connected through God. Everyone becomes our very own. When we reach this state, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji said, we inherently become generous and caring to all, whether we know them or not.
