Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 10, 6th sabad describe many pursuits of humans. Many millions unattaching but attaching to the contemplation of the creator, search for the creator and so in the soul, seek the vision and meet the indestructible, seeking true company and find love of creator.

Guru ji conclude that one’s so loved are the most fortunate ones.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

One who is detached, looks for Creator, Has thirst for Darshan, wants company of the True one(s) sound like qualities a seeker has.
Bhagat Singh ji great summation. It is one creator being infinite that is emphasized with satisfaction of considered attributes, visualizations, hunger for, searching of, etc. Infinite signifies that even if one were to catalog all such in SGGS that we will be so incomplete that it will be futile. Hence the need not to define all but continuously understand and experince more, and in living of such understanding.

Sat Sri Akal.
