Divine Contact – Connecting to the Divine

The most valuable thing you can offer God is your love. He owns everything else, even your soul.

When we are born we come with nothing. When we die we leave with nothing. Yet while we live we struggle with many things. Having a relationship with God helps us with our difficulties.

A child plays with lots of toys in a room and has lots of friends. At some point in time he(or she) stops and does not want to play anymore or does not even want food but just wants his mother to hold him or hug him. The mother drops everything and hugs her child. Such is the power of love. So one day when we just love God and we don’t seek anything from God or just want God then God comes and gives us this hug. Our journey to return to God begins.

We are then guided to the right teacher/ teachers or people who helps us to begin our sadhana or continue our sadhana. Then religion becomes more of spirituality because we will be trying to find the spirit within or our soul. We want to make Divine Connection. We make Divine Contact through prayer, meditation, sharing love and sometimes when we have those “ah hah” moments. Prayer is speaking to God, meditation is a broad name for part listening in and part communion with God. When true meditation is attained then it is sitting in presence. Communion with God and becoming one with the divine are experiences and many from different cultures and faiths speak about this.

The whole process of seeking, praying, chanting, loving God, changing the diet, sometimes fasting, contemplation, watching your emotions, seeing synchronicity, yoga, and meditation is call sadhana. The final sadhana is meditation under the guidance of a satguru. Along the way we will be transformed. Our food, clothes, company, and understanding of ourselves and God will change.

As a human being how do we navigate life? By beginning an understanding of who you are and how you gather information and what drives you and what you can do to function at a higher level can lead you into making Divine Contact and your understanding of life. You are made up of everything you embrace or encounter in your life and you record everything within yourself. All the events, deeds, emotions, music, things you read and people you meet are recorded within you.

Life, love, beauty and intelligence flow through us. Can you feel it and know it? We are co-creators with the Divine. By connecting to the Divine we will understand this more and keep this planet a wonderful place to live, share, create, love and appreciate. What we put into ourselves is what we pour out and express into the universe.

What do we have in ourselves right now? Sometimes we carry unnecessary things. We carry worries, trauma from this life and other lifetimes, unresolved emotions and karmic energies and resonances. So, we carry around a lot of “luggage” that influences our thinking, health and well-being. Challenges in life are blessings in disguise. It allows you to change and grow. Difficult circumstances will always come your way. Spiritual research gives you the tools to deal with everyday life situations and shed past vasanas(tendencies) and unwanted karmic energies.

At the end of sadhana we surrender to God. So how do we connect to God? How do we meditate? This was the work I was doing through satsangs and meditation sessions and then I created the website. Over the years, I realized that God alone will send someone to this path and it is only for a few. Nevertheless, this website is filled with lots of different things- writings, inspirations, songs, art, meditation and a blog.
