    How could I have not seen! Sri Guru Granth Sahib says it over and over again. It wasn’t until I stopped looking for an object for the expression of my love that His love flowed freely.

    The True Guru doesn’t need me to love 'anybody'. Akal Purakh doesn’t need me to find the purpose or an object for my love. How could there ever be an object more worthy than Him and His universe. It is Waheguru´s love which has guided me to His love. It is His love which gave my form its life, my body exists to experience His love and in turn it is His creation which receives love. Should I die now I will die in His love. It was the play of Maya which mislead me, now that I am immersed in His love Maya too smiles and laughs with me! Oh Waheguru, how you love! How wonderful is your love!

    ਦੂਜੈ ਭਾਇਕੋ ਨਾ ਮਿਲੈ ਫਿਰਿ ਫਿਰਿ ਆਵੈ ਜਾਇ ॥
    दूजै भाइ कोना मिलै फिरि फिरि आवै जाइ ॥
    Ḏūjai bẖā▫e ko nā milai fir fir āvai jā▫e.
    No one merges with Him through the love of duality; over and over again, they come and go in reincarnation.
