There is only one success – to be able to spend your life in your own way.
Is it true? From time and again we have heard different stories about success. So many people interpret it their own way. And suddenly you like one definition, you might reach there and you realize you have just grasped a cloud of dust.
Is there any true success?
ਮੁਕਤਿ ਭੁਗਤਿ ਜੁਗਤਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਉ ॥
Liberation, pleasures and worldly success are all in the Lord’s Name.
ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਭਗਤਿ ਨਾਨਕ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਉ ॥੪॥੧੦੦॥੧੬੯॥
With loving devotional worship, O Nanak, sing His Glorious Praises. ||4||100||169||
Do we need to find any other way of success?
Here a Shabad describes the joy of finding success.
This is the true eureka moment:
ਸੋਧਤ ਸੋਧਤ ਸੋਧਤ ਸੀਝਿਆ ॥
Searching, searching, searching, and finally, success!
ਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਤਤੁ ਸਭੁ ਬੂਝਿਆ ॥
By Guru’s Grace, the essence of all reality is understood.
ਜਬ ਦੇਖਉ ਤਬ ਸਭੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਮੂਲੁ ॥
Wherever I look, there I see Him, at the root of all things.
ਨਾਨਕ ਸੋ ਸੂਖਮੁ ਸੋਈ ਅਸਥੂਲੁ ॥੫॥
O Nanak, He is the subtle, and He is also the manifest. ||5||
