Guru Gobind Singh Ji is always present in every minute, every second of my days, even when I fall asleep. He never leaves my side. In a world of no expectations, I always know he’s there.
He leads me to Waheguru when I’m happy and when I’m sad.
He is the fire in my eyes and the one who I bolo loud for.
He’s the reason that I stand up and move in when needed without question.
He’s the reason why I will jump into a fire for someone who is being bullied, the reason why I will fight to protect someone being discriminated for their religion as he is with me while I remember his father Guru Tegh Bahadur and his children Baba Jujhar Singh, Baba Fateh Singh, Baba Zorawar Singh and Baba Ajit Singh and of course his mother Mata Gujri.
He is always with me. He is my protector. If he needs an army now I hope he comes to me. I’m always safe because of Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
When I’m in my lowest, saddest moments, when I think there is no one to help me, it’s Guru Gobind Singh Ji who puts both hands on my shoulders, who looks into my eyes and tells me that I am Jagjeevan Kaur and to be strong.
When I’m in my happiest moments, feeling like I have more than I could have ever thought possible, it’s Guru Gobind Singh Ji reaches his hand out to me and looks into my eyes and reminds me that I don’t need it all and to give some away.
I learned to let go of attachment and to put disappointment because of human expectations behind me and I understand love in a much deeper way because of Him.
I am much more closely connected to Waheguru because Guru Gobind Singh Ji leads me there.
