Pierce through the Barrier to Reach the Light of God
Addressing the large online audience gathered for the 42nd Global Meditation in Place event today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj offered a mechanism to pierce through the barriers that impede our spiritual progress. Life has many challenges, he said. We may face physical, financial, emotional, or mental difficulties, and these often act as hindrances in our quest to find God. When we sit down to meditate, these difficulties keep us from stilling the body and mind, which is critical for us to focus our attention within and make inner spiritual progress.
Saints and spiritual Masters teach us how we can deal with life’s ups and downs, so that they do not impact us spiritually. To do so, we first need to realize that we are not the body or the mind, but the soul. We need to understand the importance of cleansing our soul and of leading the right kind of life that takes us Godward.
We are like a pipe, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji said, and the cleaner the pipe, the more easily God’s love and Light can flow through us. We have a choice to either allow our pipe to clog up or to cleanse it so that the divine waters flow smoothly through it. It all depends on how we live our life.
When we entertain negative thoughts, words, and deeds, we clog our pipe. In contrast, when we lead an ethical life and regularly focus our attention within through meditation, we pierce the walls of body and mind and connect with the divine Light of God.
