    Please post your views on the following passage which I have recieved in the Hukamnama quite sometimes back. It always inspired me whenever I felt let down by circumstances or people around me. But now I have read this translation of this Shabad at one of the sites & got confused about the word "She" used in the translation which I need to understand. Anyone who could evaluate it further.
