AM I NORMAL?
by Gurpreet Singh
who wants to be normal? Was Guru Nanak Dev Ji normal when he walked 82,000 miles? Was guru Gobind Singh ji normal when he asked for a head! Were any of the martyrs normal, choosing death than living like slaves? No, the devotees of God are not normal they are madly and deeply in love with God while the whole world thinks they are insane ...
When Guru Nanak Maharaj appeared from the river after three days, all soaked and with messy hair, people called him many things as guru nanak dev ji himself writes:
"Some call him a ghost; some say that he is a demon.
Some call him a mere mortal; O, poor Nanak! ||1||
Crazy Nanak has gone insane, after his Lord, the King.
I know of none other than the Lord. ||1||Pause||" SGGS 991
So on this path to being a Gurmukh, forget about what the world thinks of you, forget about being normal, forget about fiiting in with society, think only of loving God, the Wondrous Creator and go where God takes you
Everyday is new,
every day my Master is New .. "sahib mera nit navaa"
every moment is wondrous
every second something amazing is happening in the universe
God is not just the Creator,
God is Karta Purakh...the Creative Being...
God is still the Master Artist
still creating ,
still being young and fresh
brilliant and beautiful,
if being normal means being bored ,
being stuck in another rut ,
then that God is not.
Being in love with God is exciting every day,
everday the love increases
everyday God calls me closer,
everyday the spiritual sun shines
brighter in my hea rt
Don't be normal
be in love with God
by loving the Name of your Beloved
swing your arms in joy
"Nanak says: swing your arms in joy!" (SGGS 22)
smile and laugh
while singing the Name of your Beloved
You are God's and God is Yours!
God says, "If you reform yourself, you shall meet me, and meeting me, you shall be at peace.
O Fareed, if you will be mine, the whole world will be yours."||95|| SGGS (1382)
Khalsae are known to live like shooting stars- sometimes short-lived but always bright, wonderous, energetic and are an awe-inspiring spectacle for the world
