Hukamnama by Bhagat Kabir ji
Page 475-476

I have started following my Guru, and I request and ask him – Dear Guru, please explain why we take birth and die, i.e. we can only understand the meaning of human birth and death from Guru. Guruji, please bless me and show me the right path to follow, so that I can detach from illusions and Maya (5 forms – Lust, Anger, Greed, Attachment, and Ego), and break away from the actions of this life and past lives that get me in cycle of life and death and become free.

Guruji, my mind doesn’t break away from attachment to Maya and it doesn’t try to escape maya by connecting to God. My mind hasn’t realized the joy of life without attachment to desires. My mind, incapable of differentiating between real good and bad, sees this world as something different, when truly the world isn’t detached/without God. With your blessing, since I have eliminated that mindset that gets us stuck in cycle of life and death, now I am in a state of unshakable faith.

Guruji, just like a pot filled with water breaks and water that was shaped like a pot is gone and now water is water. That way, the misunderstanding of a rope with a snake is gone. Meaning, my misunderstanding, that the world is any different from God, is eliminated and now I have made a solid connection with God.
