Letter from My Brother
The message below was written by a satsangi and discovered with his body after his death
To my beloved sons
To my family
To my friends and colleagues at work
To my dear brothers and sisters of the sangat
I leave these words behind with the body I have just left. Please do not waste your breath lamenting but prepare and be ready for the day that you are called back.
For the past twenty years I have been preparing for this day. I know that my solitude and seclusion has caused concern. Please forgive me and find peace in the knowledge that these have been my most focused and devotional years. I feel honoured, humbled and blessed by God’s grace to have been given the great blessing of finding a teacher who inspired and taught me to love the one true God.
We humans have the rare privilege and opportunity to find God within our body, which is truly the temple of the Lord and the top of creation. He is “nearer than the royal vein”, just as we are told, yet unfortunately most are looking elsewhere.
No doubt, such is his will and we all follow the path of our destiny. He knows best. He is the Creator supreme. God gives all life. God takes away that very life. Through his Word, Holy Spirit, Shabd, Hukam, Kalma or Name, he is the essence of the entire creation – yet timeless, immortal and detached he remains.
Seek and you will find his door. Knock and it will be opened for you.
The seeking and knocking are what makes us human. God has placed the path to him within our body. The path takes a lifetime of patient sincere knocking, with our ego and hearts in our hands as an offering. These we have to surrender.
May his patience, his compassion, his grace, his love and his wisdom fill your hearts always.
