The Gateway to God

February 20, 2021

Today, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj described the path Godward. He said that when we experience the yearning to find God at some point in our lives, we search for God in the outer world because this outer world is all we know. But God is not far away from us. God resides within us, and in this human existence, we have all that is needed for us to find God.

We first need to develop right understanding of who we are and of our relationship with God. This right understanding comes when, under the guidance of a spiritual adept, we realize that our true form is not the body, the mind, or the intellect. Our true essence is the soul, which is a part of God and is conscious. The spiritual Master said the soul is a droplet of the Ocean of God, and just as a grain of sand carries the entire desert within it, the droplet of our soul contains all the characteristics of the Ocean of God.

When we experience ourselves as soul and realize that we have been separated from God for eons, our goal and the path to achieving our goal become clear. To experience our true essence, we need to focus our attention at the third eye—the gateway to the inner regions. The process of taking our attention away from the world outside and focusing it at this gateway is called meditation. Sant Rajinder Singh Ji said that as we collect our sensory currents at the third eye, in the stillness of the body and mind, our soul embarks on the spiritual journey to connect with God’s Light and love. This journey culminates in the fulfillment of life’s supreme purpose.
