Someone said to me, “Don’t ask Gurbani what God is.”
“Because Gurbani will ask back what is not!”
Even though the entire universe is the manifestation of God, we cannot see him. We see everything else but not God. Such is our illusion!
ਹਉ ਹਉ ਭੀਤਿ ਭਇਓ ਹੈ ਬੀਚੋ ਸੁਨਤ ਦੇਸਿ ਨਿਕਟਾਇਓ ॥
ਭਾਂਭੀਰੀ ਕੇ ਪਾਤ ਪਰਦੋ ਬਿਨੁ ਪੇਖੇ ਦੂਰਾਇਓ ॥੩॥
The wall of egotism and pride separates us, but I can hear Him nearby.
There is a veil between us, as thin as the wings of a butterfly; but without being able to see Him, He seems so far away.
