A Blueprint for 2021

January 9, 2021

As we reflect on how we can better our lives in the new year, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj gave a blueprint to help us lead the kind of life God wishes for us. Our lives should be centered on love—love for God and love for our fellow beings, he said. It all begins as we connect with God’s love through the process of meditation.

When we take our attention away from the outer world and focus it within, we are filled with joy and bliss. We are inspired to live a life of service to others and to embrace all we meet as members of the same family of God.

Our true nature is soul, and as a part of God, our soul is full of the love of God. It has an existence that is unconstrained by the limitations and boundaries we place on our body, mind, and intellect. When we live at the level of our soul, we can transcend the walls of separation and embrace one and all. We develop the godly virtues of truthfulness, nonviolence, selfless service, compassion, and humility, and we lead the life that God wishes for us.

It is only when we invert our attention through the process of meditation that we realize our true nature and experience God’s love. Only when we experience God’s love can we share this love with others, and only when we share this love and transcend all boundaries do we become truly human.
