I was reading the following pangti's on Ang 834 and it reminded me of this guidance I once heard. Only the Creator Lord Himself knows the state and condition of everyone; the Lord Himself makes all the arrangements. har gat mit kartaa aapay jaanai sabh biDh har har aap bana-ee-aa. The treasure of jewels is found in the ocean of the Guru`s Teachings. The treasure of devotional worship is opened to me. ratan padaarath gurmat paavai saagar bhagat bhandaar khulH-ee-aa. This body is the field of karma; the Gurmukhs plow and work it, and harvest the essence. ih sareer karam kee Dhartee gurmukh math math tat kadha-ee-aa. The priceless jewel of the Naam becomes manifest, and it pours into their vessels of love. laal javayhar naam pargaasi-aa bhaaNdai bhaa-o pavai tit a-ee-aa. Become the slave of the slave of the slave, of that humble being who has become the devotee of the Lord. daasan daas daas ho-ay rahee-ai jo jan raam bhagat nij bha-ee-aa. I dedicate my mind and intellect, and place them in offering before my Guru; by Guru`s Grace, I speak the Unspoken. man buDh arap Dhara-o gur aagai gur parsaadee mai akath katha-ee-aa. The self-willed manmukhs are engrossed in attachment to Maya; their minds are thirsty, burning with desire. manmukh maa-i-aa mohi vi-aapay ih man tarisnaa jalat tikha-ee-aa. Following the Guru`s Teachings, I have obtained the Ambrosial Water of the Naam, and the fire has been put out. The Word of the Guru`s Shabad
has put it out. gurmat naam amrit jal paa-i-aa agan bujhee gur sabad bujha-ee-aa. This mind dances before the True Guru. The unstruck sound current of the Shabad resounds, vibrating the celestial melody of the horn. ih man naachai satgur aagai anhad sabad Dhun toor vaja-ee-aa.
The instruction went something along the lines:
Think of the mind as field and the weeds are your thoughts. Your job is simply to use the Gurmantar as the folk and your breath the action of pushing the folk in and out. Keep digging out those weeds and clean the field and keep it weed free. The seeds of the anhad shabad which Waheguru has already planted within you just needs to be given the opportunity to sprout. Like a farmer tending to his field everyday you must also do this as much as possible.
