SORAT’H, NINTH MEHL:
O dear friend, know this in your mind. The world is entangled in its own pleasures; no one is for anyone else.
In good times, many come and sit together, surrounding you on all four sides. But when hard times come, they all leave, and no one comes near you.
Your wife, whom you love so much, and who has remained ever attached to you, runs away crying, ...“Ghost! Ghost!”, as soon as the swan-soul leaves this body.
This is the way they act — those whom we love so much. At the very last moment, O Nanak, no one is any use at all, except the Dear Lord.
Love & Light
