    "Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant." - Robert Stevenson Note: This beautiful quotation above, took me towards another beautiful point, which is that, we too should not be judgemental about our daily life, for there is hardly much we can do as per our pralabdh karam; but yes, we should be attentive and ask ourselves about many seeds of WaheguruΒ΄s Naam, have we planted today in the soil of our minds. For it is the seeds of His name alone, which we shall carry along with us, at our departure time from this earthly plane. SSA

    "Letting go doesn't mean that we forget..but.. it does mean that we can move on without regrets and without pain...Don't let the past ruin your present and let the present tell you the future... If you're still looking for that one person who will change your life,take a look in the mirror. Make a great day Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same. Good Morning Ji!

    "The road leading to a goal does not separate you from the destination; it is essentially a part of it." - Charles DeLint *Note: in a similar way, Nam bhakti leads us to Waheguru Akal Purukh "Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared." - Buddha "Kind words do not cost much. Yet they accomplish much." - Blaise Pascal "Don't let what you can't do stop you from doing what you can do." - Unknown *Note: in a similar way, let absolutely nothing keep us away from meditating on Him, for it is this bhakti, that pleases Him the most.

    True devotion or bhakti, has to take you there where Truth is. And as we all know, the Truth which Gurbani talks about is within us, within our body, His Harmandir. If not there, then it should at least take us to stay as kookars at His Door. If not there, then at least at the path which will one day take us within for sure... If it does not take us there even, then leave that devotion, for it will take us nowhere, because that so called devotion time spent, keeps our attention, our dhyan outside, there where He is not; for He is only to be found within. So do only that devotion which takes your attention within, and that devotion, is none other than His simran Sat Sree Akal.

    "You don't drown by falling in water. You drown by staying there." - Unknown *Note: in a similar way, by being in the web mayavee creation is not the motive to be stuck in the cycle of 84, it is by not meditating on Him as per Bani, to get out of this false web/creation and merge in Him forever.

    "Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself." - Desiderius Erasmus *Note: give yourself the Light of Gurbani within with His bhakti and the darkness of ignorance which makes us incurr into karma, shall dissapear. "Be thankful when you don't know something for it gives you the opportunity to learn." - Unknown "Edison failed 10,000 times before he made the electric light. Do not be discouraged if you fail a few times." - Napoleon Hill *Note: We should never feel discouraged if by any of our efforts as per bhakti we think we are not making any progress by having even a glimpse of His darshan, it is not that His Light has diminished in any way, it is only that, the veil of our karmas is yet very thick, but surely, by persisting without fail in our regualr Bhakti, we shall surely pierce it by His grace.

    Asceticism doesn't lie in mere words; He is an ascetic who treats everyone alike. Asceticism doesn't lie in visiting burial places; it lies not in wandering about nor in bathing at places of pilgrimage. Asceticism is to remain pure amidst impurities. Sree Guru Nanak. *Note: and purity comes only by meditating on Nam

I always look on the positive side of what I can do." - Chuck Norris Note: so much truth in these words of C.Norris; if only we could pay attention on what we can certainly do without any comparisons with others, we would certainly achieve success in almost all of our intentions.

    "To follow, without halt, one aim: There is the secret of success." - Anna Pavlova These beautiful words, made me realize, that we too, if we want His darshan, we should have Him as our only goal, and keep persisiting with our bhakti, like just as the Bani says: Saas saas simroh Gobind. The only justice we can do with our Daata, our life giver, is to remember Him with each and every inhaling and exhaling breath. SSA.

    Your true work in life, is to keep lifting your frecuency, because everything in your life comes as a result of the vibration you are on. More the bhakti we do.... the higher the frecuency in which we will find ourselves.
