Only those who reach their True Home obtain everlasting joy and peace. They break out of the cycle of birth and death forever and return at last to the Father, thereby escaping the repeated tortures of the messengers of death.
With whose grace do we gain admission to the court of the Lord? Surely not by our own efforts. Alone, we can do nothing. We can never, by ourselves, traverse the uncharted terrain of the inner path. We owe everything to the immeasurable grace of the Master. He showers his blessings on us by joining us with the Shabd and Nam, removing all our doubts, and pulling us out of this quagmire of illusion. It is our Master who puts us on the right path and awakens in our mind abiding love and devotion for the Lord. Blessed with his infinite grace, through meditation, we seek the door, find it, and we knock.
All beings in the world are helpless puppets in the hands of destiny. There is nothing they can accomplish by their own efforts. Those on whom the Lord wishes to shower his mercy and grace are given the gift of the human form. Out of those fortunate souls, he draws the attention of the marked ones to himself. These are the souls whom he, in his supreme bounty, wishes to deliver from doubt and delusion, whom he wishes to call back to his mansion by joining them with the Light and Sound.
Not till he himself showers his blessings are we put on this path. Not till he himself wants to lift us out of the mire of doubts are our minds made pure and clean. Not till he himself takes us into his fold are we redeemed through the Master’s grace.
