Recently, I have been immersed in a groundswell of decision-making. Through prayer and introspection, I have attempted to discern God's voice, wooing me in one direction or another. Such deep listening is hard and tiring work.

Then, the other evening, while ensconced in the rhythms of Gurbani at the Gurdwara, I suddenly realized that my focus had been largely misplaced. God was in the outcome, more than in the decision itself. It was my responsibility to choose, knowing that God would accompany me either way. As we read in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib: "That bride, who is absorbed into the True Guru, shall never become a widow" (53).

God will be there, always, blessing the unworthy with virtue.
