Got this in an email...thought I'd share it.

"There's a reason why you should never put yourself down, as a daughter of Guru Gobind Singh and a creation of the almighty, limitless creator, Akaal Purakh Vaaheguru. Don't ever forget that the blood that is pumping your sad heart today is filled with Amrit Naam of those Panj Pyare that gifted you with Eternal Death - Dhan Dhan Bhai Daya Singh, Dhan Dhan Bhai Dharm Singh, Dhan Dhan Bhai Himmat Singh, Dhan Dhan Bhai Mohkam Singh, Dhan Dhan Bhai Sahib Singh. Don't ever forget that the veins traveling from your brain to your toes, and everywhere in between, are laced with the same Immortal Nectar drunk by martyrs like Mata Bhag Kaur, Bhai Mani Singh, Baba Gurbachan Singh ji Manochahal, Bhai Amrik Singh, Bhai Surinder Singh Sodhi, Bibi Satnaam Kaur & Bibi Vaaheguru Kaur, Azaad Shernee Bibi Deep Kaur Ji, Baba Deep Singh ji who fought with no head, and the small-bodied Bachittar Singh who killed a massive, drunken elephant in one blow of his naagni barcha... What difference is there between you and them? You have the same Father - Guru Gobind Singh, whose eyes, according to Bhai Land Naal Ji, are so beautiful and luminous that they provide light to the entire night's sky...

man thoo(n) joth saroop hai aapanaa mool pashhaan
O my mind, you are the embodiment of the Divine Light - recognize your own origin.

Even though every one of us can make mistakes, even though no one is free of mistakes, Akaal Purakh still fashioned our body and breathed air into it. He weaved each beautiful, long hair into your scalp and blessed your body with the radiance of Naam, happiness, innocence, powerful strength, and wisdom. He has given you, as His daughter, the energy to create, preserve, and destroy. You have come onto the Maarag of Guru Gobind Singh with countless tap (intense meditation), bhagti (remembrance of God), and ardaas (humble prayer) from previous lifetimes. You are BLESSED, not DOOMED! You are PURE, not DIRTY! You are BEAUTIFUL, not ugly! You are a vision of VAAHEGURU, not a vision of Maya! You are a ROYAL PRINCE that commands the Khalsa Armies, not a pauper... You have come here to change your Self, and in turn, change the world around you. You have come here to wake up, not to fall asleep. You have come here to recognize that the distance dividing your Union with Vaaheguru is thinner than the wings of a butterfly...

bhaa(n)bheeree kae paath paradho bin paekhae dhooraaeiou 3
There is a veil between us, like the wings of a butterfly; without being able to see Him, He seems so far away. 3

Sometimes we fall in our path of Sikhi; we lose our Amrit Vela, we engage in the 5 Vices (lust, anger, greed, pride, and attachment), we look in the mirror and punish the Beautiful Form that Akaal Purakh gave us by saying it's not good enough... Still, sisters, there is a reason why we can not put ourselves down. There is a reason why we must be content with our every step, our every day, there is a reason why we must love each other and love our selves <3.

O my mind, you are the embodiment of the Divine Light - recognize your own origin.

man har jee thaerai naal hai guramathee ra(n)g maan
O my mind, the Dear Lord is with you; through the Guru's Teachings, enjoy His Love.

mool pashhaanehi thaa(n) sahu jaanehi maran jeevan kee sojhee hoee
Acknowledge your origin, and then you shall know your Husband Lord, and so understand death and birth.

gur parasaadhee eaeko jaanehi thaa(n) dhoojaa bhaao n hoee
By Guru's Grace, know the One; then, you shall not love any other.

man saa(n)th aaee vajee vadhhaaee thaa hoaa paravaan
Peace comes to the mind, and gladness resounds; then, you shall be acclaimed.

eio kehai naanak man thoo(n) joth saroop hai apanaa mool pashhaan 5
Thus says Nanak: O my mind, you are the very image of the Luminous Lord; recognize the true origin of your self. 5

There is no limit to what you can achieve, to what you can be, to what good you can create, to what evil you can destroy... There is no limit to your capacity, if you accept Akaal Purakh Vaaheguru as your only friend, your only love, your only support, and stop turning to others. You are the very image of Guru Gobind Singh ji, the very image of Mata Sahib Kaur ji, the very image of Vaaheguru. Whether you want to get a new job, whether you want to finish Dasam Granth Santhiya, whether you want to become a Gatka Ustaad - Believe in the power of Vaaheguru that is sitting within. he sent you here for a reason :) and its your job to discover that reason. akaal sahai"

See, He always comes through :)
Bout of depression over.
