- 38th, the Last Step.....DRAW SUSTENANCE from TRUTH & TRUE IDEAs
TRUTHFULLY BELIEVE in TRUE IDEAs
BECOME A VISIONARY
Step 24: WORK to seek Thy favour.
- Endless aspects & dimensions of TRUTH are endless
- --Thy virtues & explanations thereof are endless
- --Thy creations in the entire universe & bounties are endless.
- --Endless efforts to listen to & perceive Thy ways just can not make one reach your limits.
- --The extent & content of thy plans can not be arrived at.
- --The near or far ends of your creations just cannot even be perceived.
- Why should one be stupid to spend life time in trying to quantify & define non-existent limits of Thy Will & Ways, as different 'schools of thought' / philosophies / traditions / faiths in India & word over give out, & at times even dictate to Humanity. All such efforts are FALSE. Let us have it straight! These limits can not be defined. More one walks to wards these imaginary non existent limits, farther they go leading one no where.
- Oh Lord! Thou are limitlessly high! higher still is your abode! Still higher to arrive at is your name i.e. 'TRUTH' .
- If one TRUTHfully rises that High & becomes an IDOL of TRUTH , then only Lord TRUTH can be realized. No one but Lord TRUTH alone knows his limits.
- It is his blessings alone that can make one live in harmony with his commandments. The urge & yearning to become Lord's chosen ones is bestowed upon, only those who commit themselves to living by TRUTH & TRUE IDEAs.
Step 25: SHED COMSUMERISM. Team up with IDOLs of TRUTH
- His Limitless Blessings can not be documented.
- The Great Giver does not hold back anything.
- There are so many great, heroic warriors begging at the Door of the Infinite Lord.
- So many contemplate and dwell upon Him, that they cannot be counted.
- So many waste away to death engaged in corruption.
- So many take and take again, and then deny receiving.
- So many foolish consumers keep on consuming.
- So many endure distress, deprivation and constant abuse.
- Even these are Your Gifts, O Great Giver!
- Liberation from bondage comes only by Your Will.
- No one else has any say in this.
- If some fool should presume to say that he does,
- he shall learn, and feel the effects of his folly.
- He Himself knows, He Himself gives.
- Few, very few are those who acknowledge this.
- One who is blessed to sing the Praises of the Lord,O Nanak, is the king of kings.
Step 26: DISCARD Mythology & Myths.
- His Virtues, Dealers, Dealings, Treasures, customers, guests, Love, reverence, Devine Law, Court, scales, weights, Blessings, Banner, Insignia, mercy, and royal command are Priceless & beyond comprehension.
- O Lord! Thou are Priceless beyond expression! Let us Speak of Him continually, and remain absorbed in His Love.
- The Vedas, Puraanas, scholars Brahma Indra Gopis Krishna Shiva Siddhas created Buddhas demons demi-gods spiritual warriors heavenly beings silent sages humble serviceful speak about yous size in Vedic Scriptures .
- Many more speak about his extents & and try to describe Him. Many have spoken of Him over and over again, and have then arisen and departed. If He were to create as many again as there already are, even then, they could not describe Him.
- He is as Great as He wishes to be O Nanak, the True Lord himself knows his own vastness
If anyone presumes to describe God , he shall be known as the greatest fool of fools!
Step 27: DO NOT QUESTION Thy WILL .
- Here Nanak Sahib wonders about & Visualizes Lord TRUTH's Gate. He actually arrives at the Gate later under 'SO DAR' Heading, which is immediately after the last(38th) Step.
- Later after completing 38 Steps, He finds that Lord TRUTH's Gate was exactly as he had visualized during his climb when he had reached Step No 27.
- Having come absolutely close to Lord TRUTH ( later under Heading 'So DAR' ), Nanak repeats his Visualization of 27th Step supplemented with Second person pronouns like 'your'& 'you' etc.
- We have seen Wordly Head Quarters \ Buildings \ Posh Corporate Offices controlling & regulating their business.At the entery one is received by best of the gracious soft spoken staff.the grace of the Entery point of some of them is awe inspiring
- My Lord! how can I, earthly mortal, even imagine the grace & magnanimity of Thy Headquarters, sitting where Thou keep a tag on all Living/Non Living Beings, Stars, Planets,Glaxies & Universes beyond comprehention.
- Hold it! Let me make make a feeble effort to paint a virtual picture of the grace of Thy abode's 'IN Gate'(HUMANITY & Nature).Those gracing the ambianne at athy gate should be:-
- Contless flawlessly professional singers, all singing in hamony in tune with best of the contless musicians playing countless 'state of the art' musical Instruments.
- Their singing must be based on Counless musical raggas/sub Raggas/Parrodies/Musical Scales/Tunes.
- Additional seekers pleading entry & singing Thy glories, I can imagine must be:--
- -- Wind
- -- Water
- -- Fire.
- -- Personified Vedic/Mythical custodian of Dharma,the King.
- -- Vedic/mythical Account Keepers of the Deeds/misdeeds of all living beings.
- -- Vedic Shiva.
- -- Vedic Brhama.
- -- All feminine Vedic/mythical dieties.
- All of them being sustained by You & thus conggregated at your gate, I am sure would appear beautifull. There must be more...
- -- Vedic King of all Kings, Indra sitting in his magnificent Throne with all his subordinates in attendance.
- -- All Pandits & Vedic Scholars through their Vedic wisdome should have been singing through Vedas since Eternity.
- -- Best of the feminine heart throbbing beauties, I am sure will be there.
- -- All beings as enumerated in vedas living on, below, on & above the earth surface.
- Yogies Singing Their traditional 'yogic Naad' there for You, and countless musicians should be playing all sorts of instruments there for You.
- There would be so many Ragas and musical harmonies to You.
- So many minstrels to sing hymns of You.
- Wind, water and fire sing for You.
- The Righteous Judge of Dharma should be singing at Your Door. Chitr and Gupt, the angels of the conscious and the subconscious who keep the record of actions, and the Righteous Judge of Dharma who reads this record, must be part of the group.
- Shiva, Brahma and the Goddess of Beauty, ever adorned by You, must be there singing your praises.
- Indra, seated on His Throne, I am sure will be there singing your glories, with the deities at Your Door. The Siddhas in Samaadhi for sure will be singing their own tunes. Not to forget all sorts of Saadhus singing of You in contemplation...
