Words(to my sister)

Sister mine,what can i tell thine
writing from my happy confines,
Pain yours understand cant i, nor comprehend
but would still hand my-extend.

Tell me thy who's happy true
and i will show you their satguru
else just mask they wear(to save their egos from tear)
they pretend and decieve themselves with cheer
truely happy one is much too rare.

Dukh is perrenial-sayth the doctrine
dukh is fine-teases the affluent with a smirky smile
but the pain is mine,no one notices my tear shine
it pains,It Pains... . . no one cares-and they sayth its fine.

Why me!does the eternal question ring
all around laughter upbrim and couples sing
then why me,subject to all chagrin
Waheguru are you there still!



Dukh-sukh is a state of mind
its a relative term-it erupts when you compare thine with Mine.

Dukh pains,but not in vain
for when the net total you do-you gain.

Dukh's the impulse which makes us question life
to not to take for granted this sojourn in time
dukh's the blessed remedy for it opens eyes
to see a fossilized diseased sea-cracks the veneer fine
a search begins.. . . (for eternal happiness)

Impulse of dukh makes you believe Satgur patshaah
Belief-which gyanis and dhyanis search digging in shashtras.

Explore gurbani to extract elixir of life
search for the meaning in those words divine
for bani of my gur is that intoxicating wine
which doesnt make pain more tolerable nor lessen plight
but extinguishes pain,and you e'merge in light.

Ardaas-thats what a daas should do
when nothing works,heart sinks,mind rues
a beseeching cry from so deep down the heart,upward moves
a moment in which mun-buddhi fuse.

It seems easy to say,but-worry not
be convinced in goodness of Hukam of dukhbhanjan kripaal
with this positive belief face the wall
Start,and you will realise-this dukh is to you,Guru's call.

Sat Sri Akaal!
Sikhiseeker,this time i cant say thanx.Firstly,coz i know i dont deserve the praise you have showered in your adjective laden post.Secondly,my subtle ego has blown out of proportion(contrary to my effort) having read your post twice.Mind really is a funny thing(very tricky).
Only "One" is worth praising,else is 'koorh'(waste).Source of all karma is 'him'-him only.So why praise an ignorant fool.Dont get fooled by the painting,painter paints........ . .

Bhul chuk di maafi.

Naam Chit Aave.

PS:(extracted from the latest post-'Why a Poem?')
... .. .
moments of gurkirpa,lords divine will-
when Guru himself fills elixir,moorakh drinks.
