My hukam told me today:
He Himself has staged His own drama; O Nanak, there is no other Creator.This made no sense to me at all, I have to little knowledge, so I looked backwards to understand the context:
When this world had not yet appeared in any form, who then committed sins and performed good deeds?This text is still a bit of a mystery to me. Could "He Himself" point back towards me and myself; Me Myself has staged my own drama? In that case He would be meaning people in general. I drawing this concusions based on the text before the hukam I got today. To me it stands for when we merge with the divine; then there is no good or bad, no hate or jealousy, no joy or sorrow and no attachments or doubts. So we create our own dramas in life because we are not one with the divine.
When the Lord Himself was in Profound Samaadhi, then against whom were hate and jealousy directed?
When there was no color or shape to be seen, then who experienced joy and sorrow?
When the Supreme Lord Himself was Himself All-in-all, then where was emotional attachment, and who had doubts?
But what do the hukam have to do with mowing? Well, when you mow you just are in that moment, doing only that. You're cut of from the world by the engines roar and you're just focusing on mowing; right here, right now. Much like meditation in the way that you merge with the task, but in meditation you, or I, merge with the mantra. When I am focused like that, I am a bit more quiet inside.
But I can be totally wrong, as I wrote I have no knowledge of the teachings of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, I'm just thinking about what it could mean and trying to learn. If you have som insight in this text you are welcome to share.
