    There is nothing but God

    The Eternal unchanging reality, very hard to conceive, but this is the eternal truth. God is every thing. He is the doer, The cause of the causes, All-Pervading Within and without in seen and unseen, The Infinite One.
    Guru Ji describes this 'oneness' in Gurbani many many times.

    In the following Shabad, Bhagat Naam Dev Jee describes this 'Oneness' very beautifully. This shabad is so sweet.

    Nanak Bani Nirankaar Paarbrahm Parmesar
    Waho Waho Bani Nirankaar Hai Tis Jevad Avar Na Koi

    ANG 485

    ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
    ik oankaar sathigur prasaadh ||
    One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:

    ਆਸਾ ਬਾਣੀ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਨਾਮਦੇਉ ਜੀ ਕੀ
    aasaa baanee sree naamadhaeo jee kee
    Aasaa, The Word Of The Reverend Naam Dayv Jee:

    ਏਕ ਅਨੇਕ ਬਿਆਪਕ ਪੂਰਕ ਜਤ ਦੇਖਉ ਤਤ ਸੋਈ ॥
    eaek anaek biaapak poorak jath dhaekho thath soee ||
    In the one and in the many, He is pervading and permeating; wherever I look, there He is.

    maaeiaa chithr bachithr bimohith biralaa boojhai koee ||1||
    The marvellous image of Maya is so fascinating; how few understand this. ||1||

    ਸਭੁ ਗੋਬਿੰਦੁ ਹੈ ਸਭੁ ਗੋਬਿੰਦੁ ਹੈ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਬਿਨੁ ਨਹੀ ਕੋਈ ॥
    sabh gobindh hai sabh gobindh hai gobindh bin nehee koee ||
    God is everything, God is everything. Without God, there is nothing at all.

    ਸੂਤੁ ਏਕੁ ਮਣਿ ਸਤ ਸਹੰਸ ਜੈਸੇ ਓਤਿ ਪੋਤਿ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਸੋਈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
    sooth eaek man sath sehans jaisae outh poth prabh soee ||1|| rehaao ||
    As one thread holds hundreds and thousands of beads, He is woven into His creation. ||1||Pause||

    ਜਲ ਤਰੰਗ ਅਰੁ ਫੇਨ ਬੁਦਬੁਦਾ ਜਲ ਤੇ ਭਿੰਨ ਨ ਹੋਈ ॥
    jal tharang ar faen budhabudhaa jal thae bhinn n hoee ||
    The waves of the water, the foam and bubbles, are not distinct from the water.

    ਇਹੁ ਪਰਪੰਚੁ ਪਾਰਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਕੀ ਲੀਲਾ ਬਿਚਰਤ ਆਨ ਨ ਹੋਈ ॥੨॥
    eihu parapanch paarabreham kee leelaa bicharath aan n hoee ||2||
    This manifested world is the playful game of the Supreme Lord God; reflecting upon it, we find that it is not different from Him. ||2||

    ਮਿਥਿਆ ਭਰਮੁ ਅਰੁ ਸੁਪਨ ਮਨੋਰਥ ਸਤਿ ਪਦਾਰਥੁ ਜਾਨਿਆ ॥
    mithhiaa bharam ar supan manorathh sath padhaarathh jaaniaa ||
    False doubts and dream objects - man believes them to be true.

    ਸੁਕ੍ਰਿਤ ਮਨਸਾ ਗੁਰ ਉਪਦੇਸੀ ਜਾਗਤ ਹੀ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਨਿਆ ॥੩॥
    sukirath manasaa gur oupadhaesee jaagath hee man maaniaa ||3||
    The Guru has instructed me to try to do good deeds, and my awakened mind has accepted this. ||3||

    ਕਹਤ ਨਾਮਦੇਉ ਹਰਿ ਕੀ ਰਚਨਾ ਦੇਖਹੁ ਰਿਦੈ ਬੀਚਾਰੀ ॥
    kehath naamadhaeo har kee rachanaa dhaekhahu ridhai beechaaree ||
    Says Naam Dayv, see the Creation of the Lord, and reflect upon it in your heart.

    ਘਟ ਘਟ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਸਰਬ ਨਿਰੰਤਰਿ ਕੇਵਲ ਏਕ ਮੁਰਾਰੀ ॥੪॥੧॥
    ghatt ghatt anthar sarab niranthar kaeval eaek muraaree ||4||1||
    In each and every heart, and deep within the very nucleus of all, is the One Lord. ||4||1||

    (Maybe a forum member will check the Gurmukhi fonts because I used a source that is different from usual, and I don't trust my own eye on this.. Thank you.)
