This body is becoming as useless as dirt & the mind as blunt as rusty iron...

ਸਿਰੀਰਾਗੁ ਮਹਲ ੧ ॥

ਤਨੁ ਜਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਮਾਟੀ ਭਇਆ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਇਆ ਮੋਹਿ ਮਨੂਰੁ ॥ ਅਉਗਣ ਫਿਰਿ ਲਾਗੂ ਭਏ ਕੂਰਿ ਵਜਾਵੈ ਤੂਰੁ ॥ ਬਿਨੁ ਸਬਦੈ ਭਰਮਾਈਐ ਦੁਬਿਧਾ ਡੋਬੇ ਪੂਰੁ ॥੧॥
ਮਨ ਰੇ ਸਬਦਿ ਤਰਹੁ ਚਿਤੁ ਲਾਇ ॥ ਜਿਨਿ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਨ ਬੂਝਿਆ ਮਰਿ ਜਨਮੈ ਆਵੈ ਜਾਇ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
ਤਨੁ ਸੂਚਾ ਸੋ ਆਖੀਐ ਜਿਸੁ ਮਹਿ ਸਾਚਾ ਨਾਉ ॥ ਭੈ ਸਚਿ ਰਾਤੀ ਦੇਹੁਰੀ ਜਿਹਵਾ ਸਚੁ ਸੁਆਉ ॥ ਸਚੀ ਨਦਰਿ ਨਿਹਾਲੀਐ ਬਹੁੜਿ ਨ ਪਾਵੈ ਤਾਉ ॥੨॥
ਸਾਚੇ ਤੇ ਪਵਨਾ ਭਇਆ ਪਵਨੈ ਤੇ ਜਲੁ ਹੋਇ ॥ ਜਲ ਤੇ ਤ੍ਰਿਭਵਣੁ ਸਾਜਿਆ ਘਟਿ ਘਟਿ ਜੋਤਿ ਸਮੋਇ ॥ ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਮੈਲਾ ਨਾ ਥੀਐ ਸਬਦਿ ਰਤੇ ਪਤਿ ਹੋਇ ॥੩॥
ਇਹੁ ਮਨੁ ਸਾਚਿ ਸੰਤੋਖਿਆ ਨਦਰਿ ਕਰੇ ਤਿਸੁ ਮਾਹਿ ॥ ਪੰਚ ਭੂਤ ਸਚਿ ਭੈ ਰਤੇ ਜੋਤਿ ਸਚੀ ਮਨ ਮਾਹਿ ॥ ਨਾਨਕ ਅਉਗਣ ਵੀਸਰੇ ਗੁਰਿ ਰਾਖੇ ਪਤਿ ਤਾਹਿ ॥੪॥੧੫॥

Siree Raag, First Mehla:

This body is becoming as useless as dirt & the mind as blunt as rusty iron, I am Overrun by vices, falsehood  is singing the song of victory. This is how without the guidance of the Shabad I am sinking completely in my self created illusions. 

O my mind, passionate understanding of the Shabad is the only thing that liberates (from illusions & vices). Not understand (truth facing) Naam, causes continuall death (at the hands of their vices)  ||1||Pause||

Only then can I call my body pristine if (truth) Naam resides within, the sweet respect (of Hukam) guide this body & it has the thirst for speaking of the truth. 
is brought to ecstasy by the True Lord's Glance of Grace. That person does not have to go through the fire of the womb again. ||2||

Since the gases comes from the 1 infinite creation, and from the gases comes the liquids. From liquids, He created the substance of the worlds; hence in each and every heart the truth reside. Hence the core essence within us can not be polluted, (there is hope). Trying to attune oneself to the Shabad, honor is obtained. ||3||

The (1 infinite truth's) grace is evident in the contentment of mind in being truthful. The 5 scary ghosts of vices now remain in the sweet respect (of Hukam); the mind is filled with the true wisdom. O Nanak, forgetting the habit of vices; this is how the true teaching will preserve my honor. ||4||15||

Teaching from Guru Nanak.
