A Program in Cali: “Rest All Your Burdens on God”
This evening Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj delivered a public discourse at the Coliseo Evangelista Mora, a part of the San Fernando Sports Unit of Cali. The coliseum was built in 1954 to house the National Sports Games, the highest multi-sporting event in the country, with a seating capacity of almost 5000. The spiritual Master was greeted with roaring applause as he arrived at the coliseum.
Addressing the multinational crowd that had gathered from all parts of Cali, South America and the world, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji shared how despite our different languages, features, cultures and nationalities, in reality we are all children of the same family of God. It is God’s love that binds us all together. If we can recognize this as we pass through life, all our worries will fade away. We worry when we are unsure about what will transpire in the future. We worry because we do not have enough faith in God, he said.
To have faith in God, we need to experience God. We need to connect with God’s love within us so that we realize God’s presence in our lives at all times. This happens as we direct our attention, the outer expression of our soul, away from the world outside and focus it at the spiritual eye, the gateway to the inner spiritual worlds. This process of inverting is called meditation. When we experience God, our faith is strengthened. We throw away our worries, resting all our burdens on God, knowing that God will give us what is best for us, he said. Contentment, joy, and equipoise then fill our lives, because we know that God is always taking care of us.
