Happy New Years!



ਥਿਰੁ ਘਰਿ ਬੈਸਹੁ ਸੋ ਹਰਿ ਜਨ ਪਿਆਰੇ

ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਤੁਮਰੇ ਕਾਜ ਸਵਾਰੇ (ਅੰਗ ੨੦੧)

Thir ghar baeso har jan pyare

Satgur tumre kaaj savarey (ang 201)


Thir - steady

Ghar - inner home

Baeso - stay

Tumre - your 

Kaaj - affairs

Savarey - resolve


O spiritual beings, become more steady within your inner home; the true Guru will resolve all your affairs.

Let's slow down a little

When the time he's running at such a speed, why are we in a hurry to compete with it?


Let's slow down a little

Instead of rushing through the speeding cars to cross the road, let's take the stairs of the crossing bridge just to enjoy our journey to go across the road.


Let's slow down a little

In the cold weather while sipping the tea or coffee, let's enjoy the fragrance and taste of every sip that we take. And maybe there is a lot more to life, but even this could just be a moment that defines living.


Let's slow down a little

While running through the park to complete your laps and steps of the day, just sit down on the bench listening to the chirping of the birds and laughter of the children playing nearby.


I know life might not be easy for a lot of people, like a treadmill without an off switch. 

Yet let's start taking time out for ourselves. 

Start settling down to be at peace with ourselves, be fine with what we have or own. 


It's amazing to explore the entire world externally and a lot of us must have visited some very stunning places. 

But how about the world inside?


Maybe with a new year, we can start becoming more inward, more settled, more complete. 


A Very Happy New Year to all.
