I once had a thousand desires. But in my one desire to know you, all else melted away.
Baba Bulleh Shah R.A
Asmaanan te ud’day panchi.
waikh te sehi ki karday ne.
na o karday rizq zakheera.
na o bhookay marday ne.
kadi kissay ne pankh pakheero.
phukay marday waikhey ne.
banday hi karday rizq zakheera.
banday hi phukkay marday ne.
See, O Humans!!
The birds flying high in the skies
Just see what they do
Neither do they hoard their food
Nor do they starving die
Has anyone ever seen
Birds dying of hunger?
It’s humans who hoard
And humans who of hunger die.

Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion.
Love the world and yourself in it, move through it as though it offers no resistance, as though the world is your natural element.
The real question is not whether life exists after death. The real question is whether you are alive before death.
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
Some people now use the term Goddess instead of God. They are redressing a balance between male and female that was lost a long time ago, and that is good.
The most reoccurring and common theme in Guru Granth Sahib Ji is
“meditate on God”/”recite the Name”
So why are most of us are concerned with e v e r y t h i n g except that?
Its like Guru Ji knew that we were so forgetful and easily absorbed into miniscule topics that He had to say it again and again and….
Still we forget.
Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies - The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Birds born in a cage think flying is an illness.
