vastu andar vast smaave dooji hove paas.... pass = aside(like we say in punjabi paase,side te,) so guru ji says if you want to put something at some place then you have to pick up what already is there, only then you will be able you put something else there(like if you want put milk in a glass that is already full of something else then you have to get rid of the other thing first, only then you will be able to use that glass to put milk in it) in the same context if you want waheguru(god) to come and sit(forever) in your mind you have to get rid of what's already ocupying your mind. in easy words guru ji is saying get rid of ego, anger ... and i will pay you a loving visit that will last forever and ever.

ਵਸਤੂ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਵਸਤੁ ਸਮਾਵੈ ਦੂਜੀ ਹੋਵੈ ਪਾਸਿ ॥

One thing can be absorbed into another thing, but duality keeps them apart.

The previous lines of the shabad tells how it is futile to befriend a fool. He sees the world as his intellect let's him see it.

Other Shabad tells us how we are sleeping and that's why we see the reality (Vast) in a fragmented manner.

ਮਨੁ ਸੋਇਆ ਮਾਇਆ ਬਿਸਮਾਦਿ ॥੧॥

The mind is asleep, fascinated by Maya.

ਇਸੁ ਗ੍ਰਿਹ ਮਹਿ ਕੋਈ ਜਾਗਤੁ ਰਹੈ ॥

Those who remain awake in this house are very rare;

ਸਾਬਤੁ ਵਸਤੁ ਓਹੁ ਅਪਨੀ ਲਹੈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

by doing so, they receive the whole thing.
