Whichever day comes, that day goes. Stay is impermanent, departure is imminent. ਜੋ ਦਿਨ ਆਵਹਿ ਸੋ ਦਿਨ ਜਾਹੀ ॥ ਕਰਨਾ ਕੂਚੁ ਰਹਨੁ ਥਿਰੁ ਨਾਹੀ ॥ – Bhagat Ravidas in Suhi Rag | Guru Granth Sahib 793 Jasleen Kaur says "This sabad has gently nudged me forward, too many times to count — moved me in some tangible direction, reminded me that the hard days — the days when I cannot get myself to do much of anything — are transient."

My Rendezvous with Silence – Inni Kaur

9/1/2019
More
