One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:

saajanarraa maeraa saajanarraa nikatt khaloeiarraa maeraa saajanarraa ||

Friend, my Friend - standing so near to me is my Friend!

jaaneearraa har jaaneearraa nain aloeiarraa har jaaneearraa ||

Beloved, the Lord my Beloved - with my eyes, I have seen the Lord, my Beloved!

nain aloeiaa ghatt ghatt soeiaa ath a(n)mrith pria goorraa ||

With my eyes I have seen Him, sleeping upon the bed within each and every heart; my Beloved is the sweetest ambrosial nectar.

naal hova(n)dhaa lehi n saka(n)dhaa suaao n jaanai moorraa ||

He is with all, but he cannot be found; the fool does not know His taste.

maaeiaa madh maathaa hoshhee baathaa milan n jaaee bharam dhharraa ||

Intoxicated with the wine of Maya, the mortal babbles on about trivial affairs; giving in to the illusion, he cannot meet the Lord.

kahu naanak gur bin naahee soojhai har saajan sabh kai nikatt kharraa ||1||

Says Nanak, without the Guru, he cannot understand the Lord, the Friend who is standing near everyone. ||1||

gobi(n)dhaa maerae gobi(n)dhaa praan adhhaaraa maerae gobi(n)dhaa ||

God, my God - the Support of the breath of life is my God.

kirapaalaa maerae kirapaalaa dhaan dhaathaaraa maerae kirapaalaa ||

Merciful Lord, my Merciful Lord - the Giver of gifts is my Merciful Lord.

dhaan dhaathaaraa apar apaaraa ghatt ghatt a(n)thar sohaniaa ||

The Giver of gifts is infinite and unlimited; deep within each and every heart, He is so beautiful!

eik dhaasee dhhaaree sabal pasaaree jeea ja(n)th lai mohaniaa ||

He created Maya, His slave, so powerfully pervasive - she has enticed all beings and creatures.

The song of joy, the Lord's song of joy; listen to the song of joy of my God.

sohilarraa prabh sohilarraa anehadh dhhuneeai sohilarraa ||

The wedding song, God's wedding song; the unstruck sound current of His wedding song resounds.

anehadh vaajae sabadh agaajae nith nith jisehi vadhhaaee ||

The unstruck sound current vibrates, and the Word of the Shabad resounds; there is continuous, continual rejoicing.

so prabh dhhiaaeeai sabh kishh paaeeai marai n aavai jaaee ||

Meditating on that God, everything is obtained; He does not die, or come or go.

chookee piaasaa pooran aasaa guramukh mil niraguneeai ||

Thirst is quenched, and hopes are fulfilled; the Gurmukh meets with the absolute, unmanifest Lord.

kahu naanak ghar prabh maerae kai nith nith ma(n)gal suneeai ||4||1||

My mind longs for the Blessed Vision of the Guru's Darshan.

हउ घोली जीउ घोलि घुमाई जन नानक दास तुमारे जीउ

I am a sacrifice, my soul is a sacrifice; servant Nanak is Your slave, Lord

In this lovely and beautiful shabad, Sachaay Patshah Guru Arjun Dev Maharaj, is telling us, that in order to meet Wahiguru, we should love Him, with such intensity and depth, that all else, becomes "pheeka", our heart bleeds, our body becomes painful, and our mind becomes restless, out of the "bireh" for His Darshan. This is how one can enter His Darbar. We have to give up our "haume" (cut our head / ego) and place it in His hands(His Mauj). Along with this, we have to do His Nam Simran, becuase it is only then we can meet Him and have His Darshan within. To start with, outer love is essential; and then when we do His Simran, we get hold of Him, and there He blesses us, through His Shabad Swaroop, with unwavering Love for His Lotus Feet.

That is why the Bani says: Anter Jot, Niranter Bani, Sachay Sahib, siu live lae. The abhyaas of Nam Simran, discloses Him within us, then we come to see His effulgencev(Jot), and listen the Divine melody of Shabad(Bani), once this state is achieved by His Grace, it produces true unwavering love in us, for Him. That is His Gurprsad also.

Sat Sree Akal.

    • it's my fault, i should have phrased things a bit better. Basically based on the data he gathered same sex couples are more likely to settle into a routine and are less likely to do things out of said routine (such as cheating, which according to the data he gathered was surprisingly low compared to straight couples). By similar attributes I mean people like them in terms of personality and taste. In straight couples you can usually note a sort of polarity in the way they behave and their personalities.  Again this is based on one study, nothing official or on a large scale really.
    • Overthinking : The art of creating problems that weren't even there."
      Maturity: is learning to walk away from people and situations that threaten your peace of mind, self-respect, values, morals or self worth.
      "Sometimes walking away is the only option. Not because you want to make someone miss you, or realize they took you for granted. But because you finally respect yourself enough to know that you deserve better."   About expectations
      "When you learn to accept instead of expect, you will have fewer disappointments."
    •   "Pause and remember" Forgiving someone does not make you a weak person. Forgiving someone does not mean you have to have that person in your life. Forgiving allows you to release the anger, resentment and hurt. Forgiveness breaks the chains to your past and sets you free." — Jenni Young     "When you are unforgiving and carry animosity, you feed the very soul of conflict that keeps your pain alive. If you suffocate your heart with anger, all your dreams will die. The only way to allow your soul to freely breathe, is to forgive." — Bryant McGill     "Forgive anyone who has caused you pain or harm. Keep in mind that forgiving is not for others. It is for you. Forgiving is not forgetting. It is remembering without anger. It frees up your power, heals your body, mind and spirit. Forgiveness opens up a pathway to a new place of peace where you can persist despite what has happened to you."  Les Brown  
    • 5 Cancer Fighting Foods Backed By Scientific Research by Anthony Gucciardi When we talk about the idea of taking back control in your life, it is absolutely essential that we talk about one of life's most important fundamentals: your health. The truth is, you most certainly can eat your way to optimum health – and it can actually be a very enjoyable (and delicious) experience. Here's 5 cancer fighting foods that are backed by scientific research to start adding into your daily optimum health routine: 1. Tea Enjoying a cup of tea is anything but a chore, and the reality is that plant-based teas can offer some very significant anti-cancer properties. Tea contains a family of natural compounds known as flavonoids, which are the phytonutrients responsible for the beautiful colors we see in fruits and vegetables. But in addition to playing a role in the vivid colorization of produce, flavonoids are also known for their powerful antioxidant effects. In particular, a flavonoid in tea called kaempferol has been pegged to help in the fight against cancer. According to an expansive Harvard University study that studied more than 66,000 women, participants who consumed more kaempferol were found to have the lowest rates of ovarian cancer. 2. Brussels Sprouts Brussels sprouts are the new kale, with various brussels-based recipes and preparation ideas popping up on social media almost daily. This happens to be a very beneficial trend, as eating brussels sprouts and other cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, kale, cauliflower) can be an excellent choice in the fight against cancer and your journey towards optimum health. What's interesting about the research here is that scientists were able to identify some inspiring protective properties against both prostate and colon cancers with the consumption of cruciferous vegetables, but the substances required to produce the results may only be released during the cutting or chewing of the vegetables. One study, as reported by WebMD, found that: “In mice grafted with human prostate tumors and then treated with one of these cancer-killing substances, tumors began to shrink to half their size after 31 days.“ The promising results may have to do with the enzyme phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), which is found naturally in cruciferous vegetables. Other studies have examined the antioxidant called sulforaphane, which is also released when you chew up cruciferous vegetables. 3. Turmeric If you haven't already started spicing up your meals with turmeric, now is the time to start. As a member of the ginger family, the turmeric plant has been used in both Indian cuisine and ancient schools of medicine for thousands of years. Now, quite some time later, researchers and nutritionists are finally getting excited about what turmeric can do. One such study that gained recent notoriety in the news cycle focused on the anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin (turmeric's active ingredient) on the body. Published in the Journal of Clinical & Cellular Immunology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston found that curcumin exhibited anti-inflammatory capabilities that could help in the fight against cancer and most other disease. "Most diseases are caused by chronic inflammation that persists over long periods of time," wrote biochemist Bharat B. Aggarwal, PhD, from The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. 4. Black Raspberries Yet another great tasting option, berries have been shown to help in the fight against one of America's most deadly conditions. In particular, black raspberries may be the best bet. It has been found that black raspberries contain a significant amount of phytochemicals known as anthocyanins, which could help to halt or slow the development of premalignant cells. One professor of internal medicine at The Ohio State University College of Medicine has even authored a book titled “Berries and Cancer Prevention” which details all of the ways in which berries wage war against cancer growth. 5. Vitamin D Not a 'food' per se, but vitamin D is such a uniquely important anti-cancer agent that it is a must-have in your arsenal against cancer. The research here is pretty clear, and even the National Cancer Institute has a lengthy page dedicated to vitamin D and its effects. In research surrounding cancer cells and tumors in mice, vitamin D was discovered to potentially slow or prevent the onset of cancer, inhibit cancer cell growth, reduce tumor vessel formation, and more. Addition pieces of literature focused on the association between vitamin D levels and death rates for some cancers. Participants living in areas with a higher amount of sunlight exposure were found to have lower rates of these cancers, which researchers stated could be due to the difference in vitamin D levels. Taking control of your health is more than just important, it's essential to living the life that you deserve to create for yourself. Adding these foods and others into your daily routine can be a step in the right direction towards securing your optimum state of health.
