Divine-Knowledge is a stage of Simran. This is when Guru Sahibs kirpaa really starts descending on you and Guru Sahib talks to you directly. Guru Jee directs you in every part of your life. When you get the blessings it is easy to think that it is just your mann (mind) speaking to you, however it is actually Guru Sahib and his divine hand, never forsake the advice Guru Jee gives.

There are 6 stages to Divine-Knowledge altogether, below is an extraction from Bandginama by Bhai Raghbir Singh Bir:

For some time, the devotee uctuates between the fourth, _fth, and sixth
stages. Progressing, he de_nitely emerges into the _fth stage, and then into
the sixth and _nal stage, where he abides. Now lie perceives that he never
took births, nor did he ever die; pleasure and pain have never been his lot; he
has never su_ered pain or grief. He knows himself as unattached and perfect
in all ages, the embodiment of Truth. He looks upon all his past Bhakti, or
devotion, all his meditation, all his Gyan as a mere dream. Then he is at
perfect peace, in the perfect bliss of Sahej-merging into the Fountainhead of
Meditation and 1st Duration How long does it take to advance from a
lower stage to a higher stage? No one can say; no one can judge. The wayfarer
has to take every step himself. Whether the pace of his progress is to be slow
or fast, and whether he will reach the destination soon or late-it depends on
his intuitive understanding, his enthusiasm, his perseverance, his industry
and association with advanced souls. The devotee must be as unbiased as
the scientist. Keen, close, careful observation, systematic arrangement of
facts, intelligent deduction of conclusions, and courage to test them, are
Progress in the preliminary stages of Simran and Gyan is slow, very slow.
But when the devotee becomes habituated to assimilating new ideas and
impulses, the pace quickens. At the beginning there is at times, a feeling of
despair; the pace is painfully slow, but when the seeker progresses further,
optimism takes the place of pessimism and the pace of progress is quickened.
The devotee must never cease to pray humbly and devoutly. Without
prayer, the progress is blocked and devotion meaningless.

Has anyone ever wondered what home actually is? GurbaaNee talks about it alot. To Duniyaavee (worldly) people home means physical. To Spiritualists home is our body.

The Chinese believe that we are the universe, and this is what Sikhee believes also - In our soul we have access to all matter in the universe. Indeed, all matter is Naam itself, everything vibrates with one vibration (Naam). In your spiritual journey you will reach a stage when all you see is Naam, all you see is Naam! how Amazing! This is a the Joth (spiritual light) of God, what all matter is made out of.

Daas absolutely adore a quote from Singh Sahib Bhai Harbhajan Singh Jogee 'If you can't see God in all, You can't see God at all'. This very true, especially from a spiritual aspect, and a scientific one too - all matter is naam, therefore, everything is God!

In our Body we have 9 openings - 2 ears, 2 eyes, 2 nostrils, a mouth and 2 below the waist. The 10th one is hidden and located at the top of our head where the Panj Piaare bless you in Amrit ceremony, when we realise what our true home is and when we come to abide in our home we discover this gate.

Alot of people ask Daas questions, sometimes Daas replys back to them - 'YOU know the answer, it is in your spirit'. Whilst doing Simran one should ask themselves whatever they want to know and they will always get the answer regardless, because all answers are hidden inside our spirit which is pure beyond thinking.

Daas would also like to cover Divine-Knowledge, but will do so at a later date, it is very interesting for the true spiritual seeker. Daas will briefly end here.
