Dear Idiot Mind

You will die soon and then you will regret everything you've done.
Everything from going back to sleep to thinking about how cute that guy looks.
I heard that Dharamraj doesnt take too kindly to people like you, so what are you gonna say when he reads you your account?
Ha, is that so? You're going to deny it all even if he as the evidence on tape?
No, those arent paid actors you fool! It's really you!
You better smarten up mister, unless you want some evil scary black things to beat your ass for eternity, got it?
Yah right, dont make any false promises...
Look, its easy...all you have to do is shut up...
Watch me close my mouth and make no sound, are you watching?

See, not so hard is it?

kabeer maaroo
raam simar pashhuthaahigaa man
Meditate in remembrance on the Lord, or else you will regret it in the end, O mind.
paapee jeearaa lobh karath hai aaj kaal out(h) jaahigaa 1 rehaao
O sinful soul, you act in greed, but today or tomorrow, you will have to get up and leave. 1Pause
laalach laagae janam gavaaeiaa maaeiaa bharam bhulaahigaa
Clinging to greed, you have wasted your life, deluded in the doubt of Maya.
dhhan joban kaa garab n keejai kaagadh jio gal jaahigaa 1
Do not take pride in your wealth and youth; you shall crumble apart like dry paper. 1
jo jam aae kaes gehi pattakai thaa dhin kishh n basaahigaa
When the Messenger of Death comes and grabs you by the hair, and knocks you down, on that day, you shall be powerless.
simaran bhajan dhaeiaa nehee keenee tho mukh chottaa khaahigaa 2
You do not remember the Lord, or vibrate upon Him in meditation, and you do not practice compassion; you shall be beaten on your face. 2
dhharam raae jab laekhaa maagai kiaa mukh lai kai jaahigaa
When the Righteous Judge of Dharma calls for your account, what face will you show Him then?
kehath kabeer sunahu rae sa(n)thahu saadhhasa(n)gath thar jaa(n)higaa 31
Says Kabeer, listen, O Saints: in the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, you shall be saved. 31

Read it again...I know you skimmed over it

Ok, now this is what you have to do:
practice compassion (you know, be nice...)
remember the Lord, vibrate on Him in meditation (thats an important one, bol Waheguru!)
"How do I do it?" you say...
Well, read the last bit of the shabad...
Saadh sangat shall save you...

Saadh sangat shall save you!!!!
