Why are you so sad? My True Guru is Perfect.

Yesterday I was feeling a bit off. Had long day at University and its comming up to exam time and everyones in the doom gloom stage. Any way through out the day I found myself singing to my self one tuk of gurbani.

ਮਨ ਕਿਉ ਬੈਰਾਗੁ ਕਰਹਿਗਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਮੇਰਾ ਪੂਰਾ ॥
man kio bairaag karehigaa sathigur maeraa pooraa
O my mind, why are you so sad? My True Guru is Perfect.

I could hear my self just reapeating it over and over. I can seem to find the audio now but yeh. In the afternoon talking to two of my best mates, I just started thinking about the lines of Gurbani. I realied that here I was feeling blues and yet Guroo mahraaj was always anng sanng. sometimes we can be so stupid and not realise the obvious.
