Experience the Light Within
On November 4th, people around the world will celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights that celebrates the victory of good over evil, of light over darkness. Describing the spiritual significance of the festival, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj reminded us of the inner Light that is always present within.
Living at the level of our physical senses, we take ourselves to be the body and we focus our attention on the attractions and distractions of the outer world—a world of impermanence, where lasting happiness and peace are unattainable. It is when we withdraw our attention from the outer world and focus it on the inner spiritual worlds that we discover true happiness.
As we embark on the inner journey through meditation, we connect with the light of God and are imbued in divine love. We awaken to our true nature as spirit and having experienced God’s love, we become fearless in the face of all difficulties. Life takes on new meaning as we learn to live our lives in a manner that brings us peace and that brings us closer to God. We all carry this light within, and it is through meditation that we can experience it and share it with others.
