Guruji, I am quite content with my life, but I have often been told that one should cultivate yearning for God. How should I cultivate such a longing?

We have chosen to take birth on Earth to fulfil some specific purpose or purposes. God is our original parent – and this world is like a school where exams have to be passed and goals have to be achieved. A child who goes to play-school, cannot get immersed in play or attached to the toys there and forget all about home. We also have to return to the loving arms of God who is our celestial mother. Only a child who loves the mother will yearn for her.
Firstly, purify your mind through devotion and meditation. Detach yourself from unnecessary worldly desires. When worldly distractions disappear, love for God rises. Be in the satsang of good people, and slowly you will develop a yearning for God. Eventually, you will find your own Guru – an enlightened Master – who will help you with spiritual practices in order to acquire the knowledge of Brahman. Only the knower of Brahman can become a true Guru. Your yearning for God will lead you to one such Guru. Once you develop a yearning for God, then it will automatically make you renounce the world, though you may be living in it.
