Before it's too Late


ਨੈਨਹੁ ਨੀਰੁ ਬਹੈ ਤਨੁ ਖੀਨਾ ਭਏ ਕੇਸ ਦੁਧ ਵਾਨੀ ॥
ਰੂਧਾ ਕੰਠੁ ਸਬਦੁ ਨਹੀ ਉਚਰੈ ਅਬ ਕਿਆ ਕਰਹਿ ਪਰਾਨੀ ॥1॥


Tears are in my eyes, my body is weak, and my hair has become milky-white
My throat is tight, and I cannot utter even one word; what am I to do now? ||1||

This Shabad is by Bhagat Bheekhan Ji in Raag Sorath on Pannaa 659

Who can teach me to appreciate solitude of my inner path and make the dance of life a beautiful one?

anon you (as am I) are alone, so take responsibility for your actions. Do not take refuge in the crowd, in belonging to some group or religion, for ultimately it is your decisions, your actions that you have to live with. An action done can never be undone. Those who have suffered through your action may be able to get over it, but you alone will have to carry the memory as part of your burden.

Once you realise that you are alone, and embrace this lonliness rather than being scared of it, then the the next stage in your evolution, nay, a revolution will take place. The dance of life will then be beautiful, in touch with the ultimate reality.

Yesterday at dawn
my friend said how long will then unconsciousness go on?
You fill yourself with the sharp pain of love rather than its fullfillment
I said " But I can't get to you! and you are the whole dark night, and I am a single candel'
My life is upside down because of you!
The friend replied " I am your deepest being
Quit talking about wanting me!
I said " then waht is this restlessness"
The friend said " Does a drop stay still in the ocean!
Move with the entirety
and with the tiniest particle
Be the moisture in an oyster that helps to form one pearl

You have been carrying the burden far too long anon! Do not fight the tension that you feel between the inside and outside, the conscious and unconscious, the outward and inward. Become an observer, that is the key, the starting point. To begin with, watch and experience your breathing, do not try to do anything but observe.

Imagine you have been carrying a sack of stones for years, how to free yourself of this burden? The answer is not to try and throw away this sack, for you have been carrying it far too long, and your unconscious won't let you throw it away. Rather, what if you come across a sack full of diamonds, what then? Naturally you will pick this up, and won't even realise you have put down the sack of stones.

So it is, with the sangat of gurmukhs, that the burden is lifted without trying, so open yourself to the potential, the unconscious and experience the bliss of the divine.

(I have to say it's not much fun having a conversation with an anonymous!)

Bhai Balwinder Singh Rangila performed kirtan at Darbar Sahib this morning, I missed it, did anyone record it?

If so, please link it so I can watch it or download it.

Thanks

The reality of the other person is not in what he/she reveals to you, but in what he/she cannot reveal to you. Therefore, if you would understand him/her, listen not to what he/she syas but rather to what he/she does not say.

Nicely put anon. What I meant to say (and failed to convey) was that with three anonymous comments I don't even know if it just one person I'm talking to, or two, or infact three different people. By all means do not reveal yourself, but give yourself an anonymous name.

I know nothing. I understand nothing
I am unaware of myself. I am in love, but with whom I do know know. My heart is at same time both full and empty of love

So there are my reasons to stay annonymous#1.

BTW, unique blog.
