    Eternity and the Eternal life

    Being a spiritual man, I can say on the strength of my own inner realization that the soul does not die. We know that we are eternal. We have come from God, we are in God, we are growing into God and we are going to fulfill God. Life and death are like two rooms; going from life to death is like going from one room to the other. Where I am now is my living room. Here I am talking to you, meditating with you, looking at you. Here I have to show my physical body; I have to work and be active and show my life. Then there is another room, my bedroom. There I take rest; I sleep. There I do not have to show my existence to anybody; I am only for myself.

    We come from the infinite life, the life divine. This infinite life stays on earth for a short span of time, say fifty or sixty years. At that time we have within us the earthbound life. But inside this earthbound life is the boundless life. After a while this life again passes through the corridor of death for five or ten or fifteen or twenty years. When we enter this corridor, the soul leaves the body for a short or long rest and goes back to the soul's region. Here, if the person was spiritual, the soul will regain the eternal life, the life divine which existed before birth, which exists between birth and death, which exists in death and, at the same time, goes beyond death.

    Now while we are living on earth, we can place ourselves in the realm of eternal life through our aspiration and meditation. But just by entering into the endless life, we do not possess that life; we have to grow into it consciously. When we enter into the life of meditation, we must eventually become part and parcel of meditation. And when we are able to meditate twenty-four hours a day we are constantly breathing in the endless life. In our inner consciousness we have become one with the soul.

    Recognize your friends and foes, otherwise you would suffer for eternity... Sikh Sikhi Sikhism Jun 10, 2004

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
