Having Wahiguru as a friend.

 

When you call upon Him through bhakti

He walks beside you as a Sajjan to comfort you

walks above you to watch over you

walks behind you as a Rakhanhaar  to keep you safe

and

with His Jot walks before you

to show you the way

towards your True Home

Sach Khand

 

Sat Sree Akal.

There is a time when a Sikh reaches a point of recognizing Naam around him.  This point teaches many lessons.  We with the will of the Guru can see the Naam in plants, animals, trees, dirt and rocks.  The Gurus given eyes provide us the ability to see how a tree can illuminate Gurus knowledge.  

However we fail to see the Gurus knowledge spoken by those who don't fit a image of a person who should be speaking of the Guru.  For example a person who drinks and can even be a person who gets drunk most Fridays. But one day she or he speaks something she learned from Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji.  Many of us will discount what she says because of her look and/or because of her drinking alcohol.  However there is Naam coming from that girls voice.  The message is Gurmat even though the person delivering it is filled with mistakes.  This has nothing to do with letting manmat people speak from the Gurus stage.  This has everything to do with being in society on a daily basis.  A person beginning to learn Sikhi won't be able to recognize what is Gurmat (Naam) from the persons speech.  So in no way is this post for them and will only cause you to drift away from the Guru.  This is for a select few stuck in the black and white of recognizing Naam.  Gurbani says Naam is everywhere.....recognize it and you will be uplifted from misery.  Recognizing this Naam in the speech of a manmat comes from devoting yourself to the Guru.  In return Guru Sahib softens the heart to see the Naam.  The Gurus compassion shows the way.  Many Sikhs today enforce the rule of make an honest living as the highest and most important way to Vaheguru.  Then they place doing charity work and last if time permits doing simran of Vaheguru.  Let me provide you with an example I learned from society emitting Naam.  A dog makes an honest living by going out and collecting food for itself and its young.  If another animal attacks the pack of dogs the dogs collectively do seva by protecting the weak.  The dog makes an honest living and does seva.  According to some Sikhs these two are the most important.  Then why hasn't the dog achieved mukti???? The dog can't achieve mukhti because it can't do simran of Vaheguru.  Simran is the most important.  Look at a tree.  Standing to provide shade to the animals and people.  It makes a honest living and shares in the wealth by letting other animals eat its roots as food and lets surrounding trees use its strong roots for their nourishment needs by joining together. Again the tree does not attain mukhti.  Why not????? Naam is all around us.  We need to develop the Gurus eyes and ears to learn from the Gurus. :)

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace... (a humble prayer)

 

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy;

O Lord, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying(bhakti kills ego) that we are born to eternal life(mukti).

 

Sat Sree Akal.

ENLIGHTENMENT

 

"Enlightenment or true spiritual growth, can be achieved only through persistent exercise of real love.”

 

*And the persistent excercise of real love, is the only one we offer to our beloved Wahiguru Akal Purukh, through Bhakti.

There are many types of love in different relationships, but He being the embodiment of supreme Truth, is the only One Being(Ik Oankar), worthy of all our unconditional love, and more, and more, and more love, without reservations.

Sat Sree Akal.
