In Paurri 23 Guru says the Creator is like a bottomless ocean. We should not try to find out how big or great IT is, but just remain absorbed in praising and emulating IT’s virtues. We shall then merge in IT like the rivers and streams flow to the sea and get lost in it. Water always seeks a lower level, so be in remembrance of the Almighty in humility.
ਸਾਲਾਹੀ ਸਾਲਾਹਿ ਏਤੀ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਨ ਪਾਈਆ ॥
ਨਦੀਆ ਅਤੈ ਵਾਹ ਪਵਹਿ ਸਮੁੰਦਿ ਨ ਜਾਣੀਅਹਿ ॥
One should praise virtues of the Almighty the such that s/he does not even realize that that s/he is doing it,
Get absorbed the way the rivers and streams lose their identity when they enter the sea.
The grace so obtained is more precious than any thing of material nature:
ਸਮੁੰਦ ਸਾਹ ਸੁਲਤਾਨ ਗਿਰਹਾ ਸੇਤੀ ਮਾਲੁ ਧਨੁ ॥
ਕੀੜੀ ਤੁਲਿ ਨ ਹੋਵਨੀ ਜੇ ਤਿਸੁ ਮਨਹੁ ਨ ਵੀਸਰਹਿ ॥੨੩॥
Remember, a king with his dominion as big as the ocean and heaps of wealth like the mountains,
is not blessed as much as the little ant that neve forgets the Master, i.e. one should think of the Almighty with humility. 23.
