This poem is from page 183 of the book  “Furmaan Khalsa: Poems to Live By” by Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji:

In the depth of my heart
Harimandir lives!

When I realized Akal Purkh
The Akal Takht came inside me too.

I belong to Guru Ram Das.
The Khalsa Panth has adorned me with Honor.

Akal Purkh Illuminates me.

Prana and apana merge.

Rising . . .
Up through Shushmana . . .

Sea of Joy!

Inside . . .
Outside . . .
Everything is God!

In God I dwell . . .
God dwells in me.

Oh Yogi! Within the Harimandir
My Union with God
Took place.
