Baba Iqbal Singh Ji
O man, you have come into this world to merge with the Lord, who has created the universe and is the supreme positive force. You have covered the long distance, of birth and rebirth, from inert matter to the plant kingdom, to the animal kingdom and finally to Man, bestowed with the Divine wisdom, to meet your Divine Master.
This is your golden chance to meet the Lord of the universe. If you miss this chance, you will fall into the vicious circle of birth and rebirth again, right from the lowest level to that of the highest creature. All the Eastern religions, including Gurbani, say that there are 84 lakh species on this planet and Man is considered to be the supreme living being amongst them all. Man is considered the master of all living species because he is blessed with Divine wisdom to reach his Divine destination.
Please do not follow the egoistic path of being engrossed in your own worldly pleasures. That would be useless and worthless and would defeat the purpose for which you have come. The only way to tread the Divine path is to shed your ego. To attain salvation in this very life is to follow the Divine instructions incorporated in holy books like the Guru Granth Sahib. This you can do only if you associate yourself with holy persons, i.e. Saadh Sangat, which will inspire you to meditate on the Divine Name for the complete elimination of your ego.
To follow the path of spirituality, there are two essentials that the Almighty has created for us. The first is the earth, which is called Dharamsala, a place where good actions and deeds are performed; and the second is the physical body that performs these actions.
Almost all religions of the world teach us that there are only two paths in this world. One leads to heaven and the other to hell. Guru Nanak says that heaven is to live in tune with the Almighty Lord and hell is to live in dissonance from the Divine, following the dictates of the egoistic mind.
Almost every Eastern religion follows the doctrine that if man lives in the company of holy persons (Sangat) he follows a path to heaven and becomes Gurmukh (being in tune with the Divine and ending the cycle of birth and rebirth). On the other hand, if the same man associates himself with bad company (Kusangat) he becomes Manmukh (becoming egoistical, following the path to hell).
The Guru has taught us that the way to walk on the Divine path of salvation in life is to completely eliminate the ego and be completely in tune with the Divine Name. The Guru says "O man you are God if you have no ego". Man minus Ego is God......
