    Gurfateh Jios,

    I have to confess to sometimes getting frustrated reading the SGGS, there is much talk about the effect of being on the same wavelength as Guruji, but this seems to be outweighed almost 10 to 1 by actual actions that can get you on to this wavelength.

    As someone who has been inventing and killing off personalities since about 13, the concept of death and rebirth are not unfamiliar to me, and to that end, my interpretation of karma and rebirth and death are consistent with change in the single one life that we all have.

    There is also much reference to the Lords name, chanting and meditation on the Lords name, as a means of tuning into the frequency, my interpretation and understanding of this is that in your head, there is already a perfectly kept copy of the SGGS, it is a matter of tuning into it, listening to it, and obeying its Hukam which is also the word of God, tuning or listening to anything else is manmukh, so to that end, it actually is not that hard to be a good sikh, it is just a matter of discipline, understanding, and living for something more than the feeling you may get from something today, be it lust, anger, rage.

    In this spirit my interpretation of todays Hukamnama

    One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:

    Listen, friends: my soul is a sacrifice, a sacrifice to You; O Lord, reveal to me the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan. ||1||


    I have been reborn and died so many times, but found that only by concentrating on the name and message of the Lord am I able to break this chain. By thinking of this essence, thieves are controlled, direction changes, I am on the path set by the Lord, focus on this knowledge, embrace it and practice it, Pleasure does not lie in slavery to the thieves, only by following the path of the Lord can I free myself from bondage and lies, instead I will be blessed by being a Sikh of the Guru, practicing his Hukam in my daily life, helping all, judging none, for me this is the ultimate worship and respect to the Creator inside, Free your heart of desires and wants, focus on the big picture, be a part of this picture, be a contributer, not a bystander, be thankful of the essence, without it, I would be just an animal, I would have nothing, it is of most huge fortune that I am able to hear this voice clearly and can follow its direction, Find like minded souls, together learn, discuss, practice
