    Gurbani conveys a very solid message of JUST ONE. There is no second. Considering a second indicates practice of duality.

    Our relationship with God is described as husband and wife. We cant have more than ONE relationship.

    ਮਨ ਰੇ ਦੂਜਾ ਭਾਉ ਚੁਕਾਇ ॥
    man rae dhoojaa bhaao chukaae ||
    O mind, give up the love of duality.


    ਧ੍ਰਿਗੁ ਜੀਵਣੁ ਦੋਹਾਗਣੀ ਮੁਠੀ ਦੂਜੈ ਭਾਇ ॥
    dhhrig jeevan dhohaaganee muthee dhoojai bhaae ||
    The life of the discarded bride is cursed. She is deceived by the love of duality.

    Duality keeps us in the cycle of birth and death:

    ਦੂਜੈ ਭਾਇ ਕੋ ਨਾ ਮਿਲੈ ਫਿਰਿ ਫਿਰਿ ਆਵੈ ਜਾਇ ॥
    dhoojai bhaae ko naa milai fir fir aavai jaae ||
    No one merges with Him through the love of duality; over and over again, they come and go in reincarnation.

    Without loving the Guru our condition is something like this:

    ਸਬਦੈ ਸਾਦੁ ਨ ਆਇਓ ਲਾਗੇ ਦੂਜੈ ਭਾਇ ॥
    sabadhai saadh n aaeiou laagae dhoojai bhaae ||
    They do not savor the Taste of the Shabad; they are attached to the love of duality.

    ਲਖ ਚਉਰਾਸੀਹ ਫੇਰੁ ਪਇਆ ਕਾਮਣਿ ਦੂਜੈ ਭਾਇ ॥
    lakh chouraaseeh faer paeiaa kaaman dhoojai bhaae ||
    The soul-bride in love with duality goes around the wheel of reincarnation, through 8.4 million incarnations.

    There is no difference between God and Guru/Brahmgyani/Realized Soul. After the light merges into light, no difference remain. Nobody can tear them apart.

    ਉਪਜਿਆ ਤਤੁ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਸਾਹੁਰੈ ਪੇਈਐ ਇਕੁ ਹਰਿ ਬਲਿ ਰਾਮ ਜੀਉ ॥
    oupajiaa thath giaan saahurai paeeeai eik har bal raam jeeo ||
    The essence of spiritual wisdom has welled up; in this world, and the next, the One Lord is pervading. I am a sacrifice to the Lord.


    ਬ੍ਰਹਮੈ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੁ ਮਿਲਿਆ ਕੋਇ ਨ ਸਾਕੈ ਭਿੰਨ ਕਰਿ ਬਲਿ ਰਾਮ ਜੀਉ ॥
    brehamai breham miliaa koe n saakai bhinn kar bal raam jeeo ||
    When God meets the God within the self, no one can separate them. I am a sacrifice to the Lord.


    ਬਿਸਮੁ ਪੇਖੈ ਬਿਸਮੁ ਸੁਣੀਐ ਬਿਸਮਾਦੁ ਨਦਰੀ ਆਇਆ ॥
    bisam paekhai bisam suneeai bisamaadh nadharee aaeiaa ||
    I gaze upon the Wondrous Lord, and listen to the Wondrous Lord; the Wondrous Lord has come into my vision.


    ਜਲਿ ਥਲਿ ਮਹੀਅਲਿ ਪੂਰਨ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਘਟਿ ਘਟਿ ਰਹਿਆ ਸਮਾਇਆ ॥
    jal thhal meheeal pooran suaamee ghatt ghatt rehiaa samaaeiaa ||
    The Perfect Lord and Master is pervading the water, the land and the sky, in each and every heart.


    ਜਿਸ ਤੇ ਉਪਜਿਆ ਤਿਸੁ ਮਾਹਿ ਸਮਾਇਆ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਕਹਣੁ ਨ ਜਾਏ ॥
    jis thae oupajiaa this maahi samaaeiaa keemath kehan n jaaeae ||
    I have merged again into the One from whom I originated. The value of this cannot be described.


    ਜਿਸ ਕੇ ਚਲਤ ਨ ਜਾਹੀ ਲਖਣੇ ਨਾਨਕ ਤਿਸਹਿ ਧਿਆਏ ॥੪॥੨॥
    jis kae chalath n jaahee lakhanae naanak thisehi dhhiaaeae ||4||2||
    Nanak meditates on Him. ||4||2||

    There is no difference between a realized soul and the one who is realized:). No one can separate them.

    ਜਲ ਤੇ ਤਰੰਗ ਤਰੰਗ ਤੇ ਹੈ ਜਲੁ ਕਹਨ ਸੁਨਨ ਕਉ ਦੂਜਾ ॥੧॥
    jal thae tharang tharang thae hai jal kehan sunan ko dhoojaa ||1||
    From the water, the waves rise up, and from the waves, the water. They are only different by figures of speech. ||1||


    No duality is allowed on the Spiritual path. Recognize the One.

    ਜਿਨੀ ਇਕੁ ਪਛਾਣਿਆ ਦੂਜਾ ਭਾਉ ਚੁਕਾਇ ॥
    jinee eik pashhaaniaa dhoojaa bhaao chukaae ||
    Those who recognize the One renounce the love of duality.


    Shared with the Sangat IN LOVE OF WAHEGURU.
    Good Luck.
