First of all we need faith in God, to really believe God exists and shows us the right path. Do Heart feel prayer (“ardas”) every day to meet the saint-Truth Guru (“satguru”) and God will show you the right way for you.
Do you have faith in King of kings Guru “Nanak Dev Ji “, that he was Complete Truth Guru (“pooran satguru”)? What about Tenth King of kings Guru (“Gobind Singh Ji”)? We all are so confident that we know these were Supreme Complete pious Pure (“pooran”) and complete Truth Gurus (“Satgurus”) with the benefit of hindsight. But what about the poor disciple of Guru (“Sikhs”) at the guru’s times, they did not have the benefit of history like we do. So what gave them faith? 99% i would say didn’t have faith even in Great great love being Guru “Nanak Dev Ji”? Just look at when Guru Sahib did the final tests at the end of his life. He dressed up as a madman and started shouting and throwing money about as he walked out of “Kartarpur” – the town he created, full of people who had come from near and far after hearing about Belovd Love filled Guru “ji”.
So who really believed in guru sahib then? Most of the so called disciple of Great great Guru King of Kings (“Sikhs”) thought guru sahib was mad and lost their faith, the ones that followed took the copper, silver and gold coins and left the guru, and only Dearest Love brother “bhai lehna ji” could see the smoke and mirrors and was prepared to eat the corpse. So only 1 True devotee of Truth-Guru (“sikh”) had real faith, all the others lost theirs.
And who believed in King of Kings Love embodiment Guru “HarGobind Ji”? Great Brother of all “Bhai Gurdas Ji” writes that Sikhs started criticizing him, saying he hunts with dogs, he carries weapons, lives like a king, talks about war, whereas previous Gurus talked about peace, had no weapons and sung loving praises of Love-Lord “Satnaam” (“kirtan”). But Great Brother of all ‘Bhai Gurdas ji’ kept his faith and wrote that so the faithless ones could see. And what happened to the faith of the Pure Being (“Khalsa”) in the siege of town-‘anandpur’? Even out of Guru “Gobind Singh Ji’s” most loyal followers, 40 deserted him in his hour of need and later repented with their blood.
So faith is not an easy thing to have, and even if you think you have it, until you are tested, until your guru starts giving you some slaps and you still are strong in your faith until then no one can say they have any
faith at all.
Instead of living your life doubting all the saints and criticizing them, Guru’s Truth word-wisdom “gurbani” says have faith in everyone. See your Truth-Guru (“satguru”) in every heart. Treat everyone as you would treat Great Beloved Love embodiment “Guru Nanak Dev Ji” if he was standing before you. Faith doesn’t replace doubts by magic. You have to make effort to trust God and Guru and start serving God and Guru in everyone. Then God and Guru reveal themselves to you in the true saints.
As Jesus said, “How you have treated the least of men is how you have treated me.”
And as Yogi “Bhajan” said, “If you cant see God in all, you cant see God at all.”
