You know what? Whatever you are thinking is not your thought! This thought is the will of God. There is no FREE-WILL.

when I thought about the last lines of Ek Omkar Satnam Gurbani I felt helpless. The last line means – “O Nanak, it is written that you shall obey the Hukam (order) of His Command, and walk in the Way of His Will.”

Check some distorted meaning based video from the movie Rang De Basanti and read a better English translation of the Gurubani here.

When I tried comprehending the meaning of Gurubani, I felt as if I am egoist. I questioned myself – then what am I doing? Why am I doing it? And why should anyone even have ambition or goals or anything? Is everything is what THE God wants me to think do and act? What is my CHOICE then? What if the thought and CHOICE is also implanted by HIM? Who am I? Am I a dead weight that should just flow with the river of life?

Things get complicated when such questions come in mind. The mind doesn’t want to accept its “non-existence” and heart says that is right, who are you? [check the hearts reasoning universe and Two men in a room – Ego] Why do you go on and on, where do you want to go, where will you reach – remember it is a treadmill you are running to stay wherever you are. More your mind runs faster you will have to run. Just leave it to His WILL.

Are you a swimmer? If you can not swim and kind of drown, the more you try to save yourself more you get into trouble. That is how the FREE WILL and HIS Will business seem to work. The harder your try miserably you fail.

Today when I learnt the meaning of Ek Omkar Satnam, it made me realize that I am just “an insignificant nothing”, but the mind doesn’t accept it.

KRD Pravin

Here I am supposed to write about myself. Professionally, I am quite serious and a workaholic; personally I am an individual who enjoys what he does and takes life as it comes. I am passionate about my work and actions and empathetically careful, attached and committed to them. All this makes me a fierce competitive professional and yet a compassionate soul, the Yin and the Yang together. Balancing is the art to be practiced using the middle path. From -

Pravin you need to go much deeper to understand the truth. You are not insignificant drop in ocean. You are the ocean in a drop.

    Ma’am, thank you so much for your comment.

    I understand this concept logically (have heard a lot of masters – from Krishna to Sadguru – asked a lot of people – my father to Ramana uncleji who has commented below – on the same) but it has not become my way of living.

Listen to Mala Kapadia. इतना भटकते क्यों?

    KRD Pravin · February 1, 2015 at 10:59 pm

    until the river meets the ocean… भटकना तो पड़ेगा ही नदी को

    Uncleji, I need to roadmap, I have read – Ashtavakra Geeta etc but these things have not reached the level of existence I live currently. You know, I am searching for the way… getting caught into spiritual shopping…
