Here is the translation plus meaning of the slok :
SHALOK, THIRD MEHL:
( because of five passions).
(nothing exists outside of God in this creation and what ever is happening is perfect);
of what purpose is to say anything.
(the world is what it is now out of choices made by it ,if majority is in Tamas so be it , our wishing or saying will not change the position now . Guru Sahib guides us by accepting what is without any blaming or resistance. This is what is called Raza). 1
(Here Guru Sahib explains HIS presence for the purpose of Simranso looking around FEEL HIS PRESENCE as stated by Guru Sahib below,there is only God everywhere )
( meaning the natural cycles , systems etc all have been made by Him)
and He Himself is the Enjoyer(in the Created beings in the world);
and He Himself is the Protector ( to whom one prays );
to remember HIM ,to be with HIM and be HIM ,which we are ).
Guru Sahibji has first explained that the world is afflicted with Tamas a minds behavioural quality that has inertia as an element. Because of Tamas the focus of conscious awareness of persons is outward in the world and illusion is such that reality of their own origin and that of the world is not known to them.Only when meeting the True Guru can the reality be known an the person brought home even while living in the world. The person then first accepts Raza and stops resenting and resisting his present circumstances and that of the world.Method is to do worship in the form of Simran by reciting HIS name which is theGuru Mantra and Feeling presence within and around. The Simran takes your focus within and then SEE the presence by saying :
Tu Hi Tu Hi Tu Hi Tu Hi Tu Hi…..
There is only EK ONKAR that exists .All is Waheguru
Guru Sahibji assures us that there will be Sukh (comfort) in this world meaning thereby that physical body will be healthy, stress free mind ,fulfillment of needs and general prosperity. But these happen as per our intention as Guru Sahibji explains elsewhere in SGGS.
We thus also have to know how to use our intention force for the purpose of our needs.
