Anchor in God

July 14, 2024

Change is a constant in life. With the passage of time, nothing in this material world remains unchanged. In his discourse today at the Science of Spirituality International Meditation Center in Lisle, Illinois, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj focused on this reality and our quest to find permanence. He said when we seek lasting love and happiness in this ever-changing panorama of life, we are always disappointed.

Nothing we experience through our physical senses is bound to last forever. Our search for permanence eventually leads us to our faiths, all of which tell us that only God is permanent.

God was in the beginning, God is today, and God will be forevermore. If we want to find happiness, peace, and stability in our lives, we need to anchor ourselves to God. To do this, we need to experience the Divine, and this experience comes as we invert our attention from the fleeting outer world and focus it on the spiritual worlds within through meditation.

Expounding on an inspiring verse by Sant Darshan Singh Ji Maharaj, the spiritual Master described the permanence of God’s love. When we tune into this eternal love, we become oblivious to the changes and uncertainties of the world around us. Imbued with this love, we reach a state of lasting bliss and joy and radiate it to others around us.
