Sorat’h, Ninth Mehl: O dear friend, know this in your mind. The world is entangled in its own pleasures; no one is for anyone else. ||1||Pause|| In good times, many come and sit together, surrounding you on all four sides. But when hard times come, they all leave, and no one comes near you. ||1|| Your wife, whom you love so much, and who has remained ever attached to you, runs away crying, “”Ghost! Ghost!””, as soon as the swan-soul leaves this body. ||2|| This is the way they act – those whom we love so much. At the very last moment, O Nanak, no one is any use at all, except the Dear Lord. ||3||12||139||
Learn to live unattached…to anything! Your comforts of a 1st-world life, your house, your family, your friends. All will leave you in the end, so learn to live alone and be happy with your Self. Then you will also be able to really appreciate things and beautiful people when the come to grace your life with their presence. Learn to live for YOU, but not for who you think you are, or who other tell you you are, live for your infinite you, for The Infinite within you. Live for the infinite love which surrounds you. Living a life with this focus is truly a blessed life.
Live in such a way that you may fulfill the deepest longing of your soul to merge back with the the infinite.
This is the ultimate gift you can give to yourself. This is the ultimate way you can express love to yourself.
