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, od is Karta Purakh…the Creative Being… God is still the Master Artist sill creating , tll being young and fresh biliant and beautiful, if being normal means being bored , en stuck in another rut , te hat God is not.
Being in love with God is exciting every day, vra the love increases eeya God calls me closer, vrdythe spiritual sun shines brighter in my hea rt
Don’t be normal b ifrnt ei oewith 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)
