According to the Sikh Guru and scripture (and many other great teachers and teachings) God Almighty is on the side of honestly humble and holy people everywhere. If you want to connect with the Beloved One, go find honest, truthful, loving people. Work with them and pray with them and share songs of inspiration with them. Search out simple and good people who are busy helping other people. Give these authentically humble and holy people your help, your time and financial support. Thus your work and the Beloved’s work merge and you attain at-one-ment, atonement.
Do not waste your time supporting egotists and con artists and their institutions.
Guru Arjan says (SGGS page 912):
Some make a big show of their worldly influence.
Some make a big show of devotional worship.
Some practice inner cleansing teahniques,
and control the breath through Kundalini Yoga.

all my desires were satisfied.
I was completely cooled and soothed.
