The 4 Subjects Of Rajyoga And Their Significance (Part 2)
- Connecting With God In Meditation – Meditation is the next subject of Rajyoga and we can practice it only when we have first learnt and understood the spiritual wisdom completely. Meditation is a soul-Supreme Soul connection in which the soul first realizes itself and visualizes and experiences its form and qualities. The soul also talks to itself and creates a positive state of mind and a consciousness based on the thoughts of wisdom it has created. Meditation is also a spiritual exercise in which the soul connects with God or the Supreme Soul using its mind and intellect and the power of wisdom. Meditation is a subtle conversation with God, the Supreme Being. Meditation is also a cleansing process, in which the mind, intellect and sanskars are cleaned completely by receiving the vibrations of God. Meditation is a charging process, in which the soul’s inner powers are awakened. In meditation, the soul receives God’s qualities and powers and it transforms itself and emerges its original goodness. Meditation also increases our closeness with God and makes us lighter and happier in our actions, along with making us more efficient and productive in different spheres of our life. Finally, meditation makes our actions more beautiful and nature perfect and free from any weaknesses.
- Inculcation Of Divine Qualities – This is the third subject of Rajyoga and a very important one. It helps us understand and measure how well we are understanding and imbibing the spiritual wisdom in our life and how effectively we are practicing the meditation. A sign of this is that divine qualities begin to increase inside us and also, we start giving and sharing a lot of goodness with others and giving and taking blessings from everyone we interact with. The more the spiritual power increases inside us, the more the qualities begin to show in our personality. Also, we become full of God’s divinity and begin to become like Him in being and giving both. Our sweetness, purity and humility begins to increase as we follow God at every step in thoughts, words and actions and our nature starts revealing God, who is our teacher and guide on the spiritual path, in different ways to the world and to every person we meet and communicate with in our day-to-day lives.
