I can relate when I first began waking up at amritvela I was 14 years old. Let's just say that the only thing that kept me from experiencing such amazing bliss was that it would be cold and dark in the morning and no one else in my family would be up...then as I got older I began staying up at night to study for my exams, and after I finished studying, it would usually be time for amritvela (around 3 or 4 in the morning). So I decided that I would do my nitnem before finally going to sleep... I still remember I was doing Jaap Sahib and realised how peaceful and nice it was to be doing paath like that, it was an amazing experience! But then all of a sudden my mind didn't like the idea of me enjoying such an experience and it began playing tricks on me and told me that there was something behind me and that someone was watching me and crazy things like that. Then for the rest of my nitnem I would keep my eyes open and would be too scared to even blink! Ahaha now that I think of it, I can't believe that I let my mind take over me and steal such precious moments where I could have enjoyed my amritvela. So I guess what I am trying to say is that don't worry we have all been through it before and that all you need to do is control your imagination and don't let it run loose!! Because that is what will stop you from enjoying your amritvela. Even gurbani says that our mind is evil. Only listen to that small inner voice, which is your conscience and soul, which will lead you on the right path. Best of luck chote veere, and just remember that your Guru ji's little bhujhangee he won't let anything happen to you in a million years :)
