Maya

Guru Nanak spoke of worlds upon worlds, universes upon universes, existences upon existences so vast that it wasn't a worthwhile endeavor to try and comprehend it . . . so he said: ''Just say Wow''. Only in his language, wow was Wahe . . . Wahe guru . . . gu/darkness - ru/light . . . wow, light comes from darkness. Wow . . . Wahe . . . that says it all. The Buddha said, several thousand years earlier: That's all well and good, all is nothing, shunya. Einstein said: Time is space moving through a point of observation of perception. They all fit together in a construct, which says time is an illusion but time creates matter, therefore, matter is an illusion. The yogis called it maya. Time creates matter, time is an illusion, therefore, matter is an illusion and so the lazy swamis and the lazy yogis, not all swamis or all yogis but the lazy ones said: if that's the way it is, why bother? . . . I am just going to go out into my little hideout and hang out knowing that I know it all. Guru Nanak came along and said: ''Hey idiots (in his language of course) why are you running off with your cheese? Why don't you share your cheese? Why is this moment of enlightenment just for you?'' So he wrote Grisht Ashram . . . the life of an enlightened householder being fully engaged in the world but never of the world . . . that's where the punch is. Wahe Guru! Unless you can identify a portion of the illusion that you can actually focus on, all illusion becomes equal.
