"A moment without sight of You passes painfully as a long dark age.
When shall I see you now, my blessed Beloved? Your face is beautiful,
and the music of Your sweet Word brings peace within. It has been so
long since I caught a glimpse of You. I yearn for you as a soaring bird
for water. Blessed is the land where You dwell, my good and beloved
Friend." (From Shabdad Hazare, translated in, The Name of My Beloved,
Verses of the Sikh Gurus, Devotional Poetry from the Guru Granth and
the Dasam Granth, Nikky Singh, The Sacred Literature Trust Series)
Guru Nanak: "The love of Maya is sweet to the world, but in the end,
this delusion is dispelled. So perform devotional worship, link your
consciousness to the Lord, and dispel anxiety from your mind. Nanak
speaks the Truth; focus your consciousness on the Lord, O my stranger
soul. Rivers and streams which separate may re-united sometime.
That rare person who centers his consciousness on the True Guru, knows intuitively and realizes the Lord.
Nanak speaks the Truth; through the True Word of the Shabad, those long
separated from the Lord, are united once again." (Shabad of Guru Nanak
in Raag Aasaa on Ang 438 of Adi Granth)
