2. Spiritual Discipline and Development and lessons of Wisdom Tree by Sikh Gurus
3. How Divine Message for this month helps in handling the ego, ignorance and suffering
THIRD IN A SERIES BY SIKH GURUS
SPECIAL ABOUT THE MONTH: This is the third native or Desi month in Indian Mysticism and Astrology when the Sun transits through the 2nd sign of the zodiac, Taurus. In the western system, it transits through the 3rd Sun sign of the zodiac, Gemini. In the Punjabi and many other Indian systems, it is the second month of the native year.
The month of Jeth gives us the message that we should unite with God, who is the highest. He protects and saves us when we accept Him as our Guide. He himself takes care without letting us depend on anyone else. His Naam (Word) is the pure pearl, that which cannot be stolen, and we enjoy His colorful wonders.
He does everything as He pleases and this Will works through everything. When He has selected us we are the blessed ones, and enjoy life in a mystical way, but this is through His Grace, not by our forcefulness, which if we try results in sorrow.
THE DIVINE MESSAGE FOR THE MONTH OF GEMINI, THE JETH BY SHRI GURU NANAK
In this month of Jeth, we ascend and cannot bear the feelings of separation caused by ignorance, the negative side of ego. The feelings of oneness become the divine urge such that the soul always wants to be in commune with God. Says Shri Guru Nanak that this leads to the highest of union, oneness and intimacy, which is a fruit of ascendancy.
You see the fruit giver, God, does not find faults with us, and rather He corrects by His Own Divine Touch of Healing and Forgiveness.
Spiritual healing does not take place through the force of the energy of ego; instead, it is by the power of His Grace. For His Grace, only faith works, like a child has faith in the mother that she will feed and protect. In other words, we are one with Him through faith in His ever-pouring Grace. Thanks!
THE DIVINE MESSAGE FOR THE MONTH OF GEMINI, THE JETH BY SHRI GURU ARJAN
In this month of Jeth, says Shri Guru Arjan, that with surrender to God and by His acceptance gives us the highest of the attainable merit of joy of existence, which is never lost. It is glory of God’s Love for all, such that our faith becomes the receiving end of His Grace. It is our human weakness that we judge ourselves and or others based on merely the intellectual value system, whereas being His own creation, He does not find faults with us.
It is His Grace that cleans all that we think is not good in us. Our existence, as a seeker, is marvelously glorified since just by having desire for Him makes us deserving of His Divine Grace.
To do selfless service is a human duty, not the condition to have deserving worth for His Grace; though desire for Him makes us selfless, as He Himself is Selfless. As His Grace is everlasting, so is the joy of ascending of the soul towards Him, for us, as when we seek we get whatever is sought logically.
This very logic is the self-vested interests that overpower our needs and thus the desires seem logical, even though it may not be. So, let us be not only personal, but fair with God.
