The Gurmukh’s life is lived in constant remembrance (of Him).
The new life starts from initiation, and then he lives on remembrance, remembrance, remembrance
which increases that new life – it begins to surge within.
God never leaves those who have true love for Him. God is with those who love Him each and every moment; they are aware of Him. If one truly loves someone, does not that person reside in one’s heart? In that case, can one love any other? This constant loving remembrance of a loved one comes after getting to know them, enjoying some happiness together, or living together in harmony. But what real love can one have for someone one has never seen, known, or lived with? We cannot develop love by just saying we love.
Whenever the Beloved is remembered by such (one), new life surges within.
So the Gurmukh’s life is lived in constant remembrance (of Him). The new life starts from initiation, and then he lives on remembrance, remembrance, remembrance which increases that new life – it begins to surge within. As a person thinks, so does he become. It starts as a remembrance, but eventually the remembrance occurs by itself – that means he has become that very remembrance. Only a person who has given his heart to another can know what it means to give the heart. It is a practical matter, for in true love there is incessant remembrance of the loved one – perpetual. The Gurmukh’s remembrance is only one – continuous. It continues without pause or end, unlike us who remember many times with breaks in between. What kind of love is here today and gone tomorrow – with this person one day and another the next? Love is only one. That is not love which changes. And the truest love is that which the soul receives through (inner) experience; that never changes.
I am a sacrifice to those who serve the Gurmukh with love; He is free himself, he frees his family, and the whole world.
Here he is not speaking of the Guru but the Gurmukh; and those who serve the Gurmukh sincerely with love not only will receive salvation for themselves, but also for their relatives and friends, for the Gurmukh comes to give salvation to the whole world. The Gurmukh frees millions with a spark of Naam. His resources are everlasting.
