One can say, the journey is far, that much of the inward journey remains to be traversed. There is however, another way of seeing this, whether experienced in meditation or not. The Kingdom may seem far, and yet, the Reality is that it is Near, Close By, in Our Midst, Within Us, even now, in the living present. Here's something to rest upon and be inspired by: Whether we know it or not in our experience, the soul is already in Sach Khand, has always been in Sach Khand. There's no other place for the soul to be other than the soul level (Sat Lok, Sach Khand). We are (the soul is) wearing several coverings: physical, also subtle bodies: astral, causal, mental, and etheric. We have to contend with the outer distractions of the five senses, and yet, our true identity remains what it always has been: soul or spirit. One Master used the term "spirit-entity". Sant Mat Meditation is about knowing this, experiencing this, shifting awareness from the other world to within. We are drops from the Ocean of Love. We are already in heaven but don't know it. And, as Rumi might say, this is "the Secret of Secrets".
