We see great emphasis in Gurbani discourse as well as in common usage of the word Hukam/ ਹੁਕਮ. ਰੱਬ ਦੇ ਹੁਕਮ ਬ*ਿਨਾਂ ਤੇ ਪੱਤਾ ਵੀ ਨਹੀਂ ਹ*ਿੱਲਦਾ / Even a leaf does not move without creator’s dictum. ਰੱਬ ਦੇ ਹੁਕਮ ਅੱਗੇ ਕ*ਿਹਦਾ ਜ਼ੋਰ ਚਲਦਾ ਹੈ / Who can overpower creator’s dictum. ਕ*ਿਸੇ ਮੌਤ ਦੇ ਮੌਕੇ ਤੇ ਕਹ*ਿੰਦੇ ਨੇਂ , " ਰੱਬ ਦ ਹੁਕਮ / ਭਾਣਾਂ ਤੇ ਮੰਨਨਾਂ ਹੀ ਪੈਂਦਾ ਹੈ "/ Mentioned commonly at death of someone, we have to accept creator’s dictum. In all these Rab/Creator (a noun) is understood and identified with the ਹੁਕਮ/dictum. Search for ਹੁਕਮ yields 431 hits in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji from Srigranth.org ( Results 1 - 30 of 431). Some of the manifestations of the word ਹੁਕਮ/Hukam are, ਹੁਕਮ/Hukam ----- - dictum (creator’s) ਹੁਕਮੀ/Hukmī ---- by or with creator's dictum ਹੁਕਮਿ/Hukmea -- in the creator's dictum ਹੁਕਮੈ/Hukmai -- per the creator's dictum In Japji Sahib we find great usage and elaboration of this word as it relates to us and the creator and the relationship therein. Let us review 2nd Pauri of Japji Sahib. Through the creator’s dictum all manifests. There is no description of description of creator’s dictum. All life takes shape through creator’s dictum and through same, the glory manifests. Through creator’s dictum one becomes virtuous or bad. Per the creator’s dictum and writing all ills and happiness are experienced. Some are blessed through creator’s dictum while same creates a state of forever transformation for other. ਹੁਕਮੈ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਸਭੁ ਕੋ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਹੁਕਮ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥ All is as per creator’s dictum and nothing is outside of creator’s dictum. Those who come to understand creator’s dictum, never utter a word laced with ego. Challenge becomes how do we understand what is indescribable? The clue is to note where the end results show up. These show up in all of creation far and near. Understanding and taking note of such is path of increasing enlightenment. Even though in human terms the road is infinitely long. So us being part of creator’s creation don’t need to just throw up our hands and say, “I will never understand and it is out of my control!”. Creation is what creator acts through. Within creation the creator has blessed us all in varying degrees and given us the capability to further develop ourselves with the potential embedded in us. As we develop so we become available for action’s per creator’s dictum. All errors always mine in any mis-interpretation and I stand corrected.
