Because Daddy is Driving…

August 12, 2005

Sat Nam!

There was once a family who were in Europe, and they needed to drive 3 days continuously, day and night, to get to Germany. So, they all got into the car — the man, his wife, and his 3 year old daughter. His little daughter has never traveled at night before. She was scared the first night in the car, with deep darkness outside.

“Where are we going, Daddy?”
“To your uncle’s house, in Germany.”
“Have you been to his house before?”
“No.”
“Then, do you know the way?” “Maybe, we can read the map.”
Short pause. “Do you know how to read the map?”
“Yes, we will get there safely.” Another pause.
“Where are we going to eat if we get hungry before arriving?”
“We can stop by restuarants if we are hungry.”
“Do you know if there are restaurants on the way?”
“Yes, there are.”
“Do you know where?”
“No, but we will be able to find some.”

The same dialogue repeated a few times within the first night, and also the second night. But on the third night, his daughter was quiet. The speaker thought that she might have fallen asleep, but when he looked into the mirror, he saw that she was awake and was just looking around calmly. He couldn’t help wondering why she was not asking the questions anymore —

“Dear, do you know where we are going?”
“Germany, Uncle’s house.”
“Do you know how we are getting there?”
“No.”
“Then why aren’t you asking anymore?”
“Because Daddy is driving.” Because Daddy is drivingBecause Daddy is driving

So I guess what Im getting at is that, YES PITHA JI IS DRIVING We may know the destination (and sometimes we may just know it like the little girl — “Germany”, without understanding where or what it really is). We do not know the way, we do not know how to read the map, we do not know if we can find restaurants along the way. But the little girl knew the most important thing — Daddy is driving — and so she is safe and secure. She knows that her Daddy will provide all that she needs.

So what if you have to walk through fire, SatGuru Sri Guru Gobind Singh Jee is carrying you in his arms, theres no safer place….
