Delay in Reaching the Real Home of Initiated Souls

When the disciple is reborn in the house of the Satguru i.e. when he gets initiation from a perfect Saint, he should give up the cleverness of his mind and intellect, performing old rites, rituals and religious ceremonies, and take shelter with a perfect saint as the religious ceremonies could not put an end to the cycle of births and deaths and could not help him to meet the Lord. He should act according to the instructions of the saint as it is true Dharma (Religion) and true worship, However, if the disciple still remains confined to the performance of outer rites, rituals and other ceremonies, he cannot attain success in spiritual practice. Such a disciple himself causes delay in reaching his real home.
Paltu Sahib says : A devotee should exclusively dedicate himself to the Satguru, giving up all the outward modes of worship. He should not indulge in the observance of rites, rituals, fasts and other penances invented by mind or intellect. He should not go on pilgrimage and indulge in idle Yogas and Superficial ways of worship and conduct. Paltu Sahib points out that he enjoyed dying while living by his trust in Nam which should be the only resort for devotees.
Guru Nanak Sahib says, “Kal (Negative Power) has created the dreadful ocean of Moh (attachment) and Maya (illusion). Everybody is drowned in this ocean of phenomena. The whole world is engrossed in the performance of outer rites and rituals prescribed by their respective sects to such an extent that it has become very difficult to part with them. Only a rare disciple can go across the deadly ocean of this material world after abandoning the outer rites, rituals and idolatry. If the disciple, after getting initiation from a true Saint, still continues to indulge in performing outward recitations, penances and worship, his attachment with the world and its objects does not cease and the cycle of transmigration is not ended. Such a disciple himself causes delay in reaching his Real Home. However, Satguru is always compassionate and beneficent. He always takes care of His disciple. He is ever keen that His disciple should reach his real home at the earliest.
In this worldly love, the World is drowned.
Some rare pious person swims across.
Through this love, the mortal is born again.
Attached to the temporal love,
the man goes to the city of Death.
Having obtained Guru's Instruction,
practise thou meditation and hard toil.
If the temporal love does not cease
Man stands stranded
greed vanishes with His blessings and
Man is merged in Lord. (356/7 M : 1)

Where does this come from?

Is this your own wisdom or is it from some writing?

Don't decide for me.

I asked to find out your level of understanding and whether it was appropriate to ask you a further question. No to judge you, so I'm sorry if you took it that way.

Did that post come from your own experience and understanding, or was it something copied? I am just wondering, since I have had an experience that it reminds me of.

Thank you.
