2. Our Divine Origin ... (part I)

The world we live in is also the world of Maya ( means literally dellusion) as Guru Sahib says -

" HE created the world, with its variety of colors, species of beings, and the variety of Maya."

- SGGS- page 6
The nature of this Maya is to deceive -
"O Baba, Maya deceives with its illusions. " - SGGS page 60
And one illusion we routinly live with is -
We are Physical body, Mind and deep inside have a Soul.
All distinct.Soul is connected to God , who exists separately.
But Guru Sahib tell us differently.

"O my mind, you are a form of Divine Light - recognize your own origin."

- SGGS page 441

The meaning looks simple but is not so we have to explore further to really understand the words of Guru Saheb.To understand lets explore further Shree Guru Granth Sahib ji.


"Thousands are Your eyes, and yet You havenot even one eye. Thousands are Your forms, and yet You have not even one form. Thousands are Your lotus feet, and yet You have not even one feet. You are without a nose, yet thousands are Your noses. Your play enchants . The Divine Light is within everyone, You are that Light. Within you is same Light that shines within everyone. " -SGGS page 663


"You are me, and I am You-what could be difference between us? We are like gold and the bracelet or like water and the waves. " - SGGS page 93

Essence of what Guru Sahib explains so clearly is that HE HIMSELF IS ALL.

So our path is to seek Naam and one way is -

" Deep within the mind and body, behold His Presence." - SGGS page 132

When we tread the path and FEEL the presence then the first result is that our Physical body will be healed as Guru Sahib ji asserts -

"First, the diseases of the body vanishes and (simultaneously) the mind becomes peaceful."
