How do you see God in all? Bhai Kanhaiya Ji's example is so difficult to implement. How do you look past the actions and thoughts of people and just see WaheGuru, especially when you can't see WaheGuruJi in yourself? Especially when you're a sinner and there are people who have went out of their way to hurt you, to deystroy you. How do you have compassion for those people?

Forgive me if I said anything wrong or offensive

You say... "...Especially when you're a sinner and there are people who have went out of their way to hurt you, to destroy you" and my reply is, it's not about you. Drop it. Forgive them and forgive yourself. Then forgive Waheguru for separating you from Him. It starts there. The past is gone. It does not exist except within your own mind. You are the one who chooses to keep playing those old 'videotapes' in your head. Start by deciding not to do that. Then catch it when it starts and utter "Waheguru!" out loud and consciously turn your thoughts elsewhere.

You must work on yourself. That means a daily sadhana together with a profoundly deep longing in your soul to see the One. If your longing is sincere - and you offer that longing to your Guru, then that deepest longing of your soul will be fulfilled. First you must see the One within yourself, then you will see the One in all.

When you see someone that you might think is "bad", just realize that deep within, their "soul" is actually part of god. Each time you do this, go through this metaphor in your head: God is an ocean of pure water, and we are all currently cups of water from that ocean. We, over time have accumulated salt though.

Another way to think of it is; we are all diamonds, and have fallen in the mud, and is covered in it. The diamond still is worth the sane amount, but most can't realize this.

Gurfateh!.!.!
