Dealing With Life’s Ups and Downs
The pendulum of life oscillates between fleeting moments of joy and seemingly-longer periods of pain. This appears to be the reality of life for most of us, despite our best efforts to create happy and calm lives. So, how can we navigate life’s ups and downs with equanimity? How can we find stability in uncertain times?
Today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj spoke of the important role of saints and spiritual Masters in helping us find stability within the ever-changing panorama of life. Spiritual Masters, he said, can pull us out of the quagmire of challenging times. They remind us of the purpose for which we were sent to this world and give us the tools we need to fulfill this purpose. By teaching us the technique of meditation, they give us the means to connect with our true essence and experience the love and Light of God that reside within us. When we experience this love, we find the stability we need to face all the difficulties and uncertainties of life. We strengthen our connection with God through daily meditation, bringing love, peace, calm, and equipoise into our lives.
