If Guru Gobind Singh Ji came to My Room

If Guru Ji came to my room to spend a day or two.
If He came unexpectedly, I wonder what I will do?
Oh, I know, I will give my nicest spot to such an honored guest
And all the food I'd serve to Him would be the very best
And I would keep assuring Him I'm glad to have Him there
That serving Him in my room is joy beyond compare

But-when I see Him coming, would I meet him at the door?
With arms out stretched in welcome to my heavenly visitor?
Or would I have to change my clothes before I let Him in?
Or hide some magazines and put the gutka where it should have been?
Would I then switch off the radio and hope he hadn't heard?
And I wish I hadn't uttered the last loud hasty word?

Would I hide my worldly music and put some Amrit Kirtan out?
Could I let Guru Ji walk right in, or would I rush about?
And I wonder-if Guru Ji spent a day or two with me,
Would I go right on doing the things I always do?
Would I go right on saying the things I always say?
Would life for me continue as it does from day to day?
Would my daily conversation keep its usual pace?
And would I find it hard, each meal to say a table grace?
Would I sing the songs I always sing, and read the books I read?
And let Him know the things on which my mind and spirit feed?
Would I take Guru Ji with me everywhere I plan to go?
Or would I maybe change my plans for just a day or so?

Would I be glad to have Him meet my very closest friends?
Or would I hope they'd stay away until His visit ends?
Would I be glad to have Him stay forever on and on?
Or would I sigh with great relief when He at last was gone?
It might be interesting to know the things that I would do
If Guru Ji in person came to spend some time with me!

( Makes you really think about our current routines - vaheguru..)
The most important thing to do is not just read these types of things, hanging our heads in shame or nodding when something applies to us. The key is to make changes.

Without action, there is nothing.

No Ji, I'm not sure who originally wrote it.
just inspired me, and hopefully others.

If the author would like it taken down, i will do so.

no worries...I was just wondering who wrote it because I remember reading it somewhere else and the author didn't leave his/her name there as well...but yea...it's an amazing piece of writing... definitely leaves you with a whole lot to think about.
