Recognize God through Meditation

August 15, 2021

Addressing the global online audience today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj spoke of how we can experience the wonder of God’s love. God, the Great Giver, has bestowed many gifts upon us, said the spiritual Master, and this human existence is God’s greatest gift of all. Only as a human can our soul realize itself and find its way back to its true Home.

Yet, unaware of the purpose for which we have been given this human form, we spend our lives enamored with the many earthly gifts that God has given us, and in the process, we have forgotten the Giver. But it remains true that whether we remember God or not, whether we trust in God or not, whether we love God or not, God is taking care of us every moment of our lives.

We can only comprehend this truth when we understand the reality of our existence and experience our connection with God. This happens as we take our attention away from the outer world and focus it on the realities of the inner spiritual worlds through meditation. When we awaken spiritually, we become conscious of God’s presence in our lives. We understand God as the Giver. We see that all that transpires in life happens under God’s will. Experiencing the great love that God has for us, our trust and faith in God are strengthened. This love propels us to find our closeness with God, and we take steps to fulfill life’s purpose.

If we are to make the best use of this human existence, God’s greatest gift, we need to first experience God, and this happens as we go within through meditation.
