  1. I think its important to first understand Maya is not bad as it too is the creation of God. How can that which is created by God be bad? What is 'bad' is our perception and understanding of what Maya is. Maya is Bad, therefore something else must be Good ie: God. So now there is a conflict between God and Maya or You and Maya. Conflicts exist because of Duality and Duality is Maya. So it a cycle of ignorance that we create. You are not in conflict with maya, you are simply in conflict with your ignorance of what Maya is. Maya cannot be destroyed, You can de-attach yourself from it t
  2. The core ingredient while doing Jap is your Love, Bhaavna / Shardha toward the Mantra.
  3. There is absolutely nothing wrong with worshiping a Stone barring few important details. One, You are under the guidance of a Living Master. Two, you are approach your practice with this thought, that if God is within that Moorti, that Stone, then God must also be within me and all those around me. Meera of Rajisthan, Bhagat Dhanna Jatt, the Guru of Bhagat Kabir ji were all Moorti Poojak. It is not the Practice that makes the difference, it is the correct guidance from a Master and your Devotion towards your practice that bring forth transformation in your Bhagti. It is common to get st
  4. The Sufi's have spoken of two types of Love, Majaji (Worldly) and Haqiqi (Godly). Love when it is woven with the strings of Attachment is call Moh. Love when it is woven with the strings of Freedom is Divine. As PJS spoke above, Learn to love others without expectations. Love them but don't hold them. Love them, but let them be free. Love them, but don't expect this love to be given back to you. Love them, but don't possess them. Love them as you would Love a flower in the Garden, enjoy its fragrance, but don't pluck it from its stem with the desire to posses it. Let it be free, L
  5. If the mind objects to your new found awareness of Sikhi and its requirements, then subject the mind to further interrogation of why am I walking on this path? First resolve the insecurity you feel about your body by becoming subjective towards it. Are you the Hair on your toe? If not, what care do you have. Is the person staring at your toes the one who is going to liberate your ignorance? If not, what care do you have towards that person? Is their Laughter towards you or towards that which is not you?
  6. From this alone, I can tell you were not ready or prepared for a relationship. One thing you have to first accept that we control the amount of misery we go through and no one else. What others do, do so out of the same freedom God has given to you. If they wish to run around, that is their prerogative. We travel together until one of us wishes to depart,....let them go! Why become a hindrance in another's freedom. God does not hinder our freedom to do what we desire, let us become God in our small way. Understand yourself first, understand your mind and where it has anchored itself

    Lazyness

    Would you be lazy to save yourself if your house was on fire? Circumstances create urgency. Would you be lazy to miss your flight when you go on vacation? Would you be lazy enough to go meet your beloved if he/she stood outside your door? A good friend of mine told me one cause of laziness is due to the lack of respect for yourself and for that which you are lazy about, homework, housework, job, school etc etc. We have fallen in a pattern of numbness, our mind no longer seeks to better ourselves, instead we are content to the point we desire no progress in our life. I also suggest you
  8. Next time, remember these words, "Sex is a part of the Body, not the Mind" Try to understand what Sex is, rather than just ignoring or suppressing it. Where does this urge come from? Why does it come to you? How often does it come and where does it go? Where is this energy coming from? What your mind has done is created an addiction to the sexuality. This (sexual) energy has to go somewhere. Learn how to do Kirtan, learn how to play Tabla. Some effort you will have to make in diverting this energy. Next time the urge comes to look at porn, be watchful of the mind and if you pay at
  9. beloved veer ji, Kalgidhar ji also says you have to have the bibek budhi to know when it is justified to act and when it isn't. Kalgidhar ji also says Sant First then Sipahi! Those account of history you have noted, only express the act, but the internal spiritual states which were needed before these Sings picked the swords is often not made mandatory or even spoken about. It is not easy as just pick up and sword and kill those wrong doers because you are Khalsa Army of the Akal Purakh. It is like giving someone a loaded gun...one must be careful who they say these words to...Is the li
  10. VahegurooJiKaKhalsaVahegurooJiKiFateh KHALSA AKAAL PURAKH KEE FAUJ VahegurooJiKiKaKhalsaVahegurooJiKiFateh Does this Khalsa have the Khalis within him/her before he or she can make this claim that he/she is the army of the Timeless? It is easy to read and utter these words for justification, but what happens when those who have not connected internally with the Timeless use these words to justify their actions? To become the Army of the Timeless is not the hands of the Army, it is in the hands of the Timeless. You do not become a Sikh because you choose to, it happens when the Guru a
  11. Do you know what the exact problem is with her? Perhaps someone here has gone through a similar situation and can help you help her deal with it. Does her family know? If not then, you should definitely talk to them if its becoming this serious.
  12. Have you consider telling her parents about this or getting help from another of your common friends. Is there some deeper issue at hand which causes her to fall into this depressive state again and again? If so, then that is where you should start. Help her deal with it by talking to her about it casually if you haven't already. Begin by Helping her Help herself first. Don't let her self-victimize herself, show her that there are people in worse situation than her. Tell her about the life of our Guru's, tell her about your personal experience, tell her that you will be there for her. I

    I don't understand..... you are re-born because you have karmic debt which needs to be paid off or you have desires that you want to fulfill, whether that desire is to reach God or to have more money. You will have to take birth as a Human. The journey is progressive, we make a choice and reap the result of that choice. All choice push us forward towards the ultimate Truth as all results from our actions provide the Jiva (Soul-Mind) an experience from which it can learn. Some learn from the experience of others, some learn from their own actions, but we learn or I hope we do...
  14. i was just pointing out that they did that to my niece and i didnt like it...im not saying its a joke...just wanted a title to capture the attention of u guyz if thats the way they want to attain god im not stopping them. To have such vision and bhaavna which allowed them to see a Devi in a child girl is not something you should mock my friend. It is the vision of Bhagat Dhanna Jat who saw the lord in a rock and compelled the creator to take literal form to satisfy the love of his Bhagat. but then they shudnt call a child a devi...and wasnt the bhagat told by hindus that we worship r
  15. Couldn't have said it better than this. I wouldn't say it is wrong to have a Servent or as the proper term Maid can be used, but it is wrong and against ones Dharm to see someone who serves you night and day suffering and not do anything to help ease their pain. If it is that obvious to you took notice of her drug abuse, then it is your right, not only as an employer but as a fellow human being that you extend a helping hand and i don't mean in giving her more monthly allowance. Rather find the root cause of her problem, because if it is a serious addiction, this will only cause her to get

    I think almost all of us have one or two family member which cause our hair to turn grey sooner rather than later. We must remember that each of us have our own karma to work out in this life...no matter how we may feel about the choice of other and no matter how close they may be to us. We all came into this world to work out the results of our past actions. While observer the behavior of other, keep in mind that you also have your journey to make and that you too have work to do on yourself in this gift of a life. If our heart reach out to someone to understand their pain and suffering
  17. The more we run towards something the further it gets away from us. Your whole energy seems to directed towards a desire which you are most likely not ready for. Life is like the flow of a river, it has its calm parts and it has its rough waters, these calm and rough parts are the results of our past actions manifesting themselves. Without the patience to ride out these blockages as you call them, you will only put your mind in a very stressful state which will begin to affect your health soon enough. What you want and what life choose to give you at this moment are two different things, n

  19. you are one of the three persons on internet who changed my way of thinking past couple of years and hence my life thank yaa !! we inspire each other veer ji! Let us thank he who planted the seed of this inspiration in us all, not individuals for we may succumb to our ego and fall short of her Grace.
  20. Atleast they have such respect for a female to touch their feet where as people punjab murder their unborn daughters.
  21. Why do you want Happiness? Are you tired of the Night in your life, why do you wish for Daylight to come? Even this darkness in your life is creating something within you, are aware of this? Don't extinguish this prematurely. Let it work itself, but remain conscious and hold on to the rope of his Name. Why is it that when you were happy, that you never asked for sadness? Yet now that you are not well, you seek happiness?

    Sins

    You need not worry about what you have done, instead focus on what you are going to do. What is done is done, you cannot go back in time and correct your mistakes, but you can change the actions you are going to take. Be more aware of what you are doing and why you are doing it, have patience before you take an action. Ask yourself is this actions going to benefit me Spiritually? Is this going to bring me closer to God or take me further away from God? Be conscious of your actions and thoughts. Instill your mind with Love of God, if you don't feel it in your heart then beg for it. Be h
  23. You are given knowledge to cure ignorance - the disease of the mind. But knowledge has to change into knowing and into experience - only then is its purpose served. But when the listener is engrossed in words, then knowledge becomes a bondage and a burden. Listening to the able master is an effective means of killing the mind - provided your surrender is earnest. You must use the all-powerful words of the master only for strengthening your mind. This is the reason why all mystics and teachers, present in different times, have to devise new methods to handle your mind. Every master is a master
  24. “Listening to the able master is an effective means of killing the mind - provided your surrender is earnest. Light and darkness can never exist together. Where there is light, there can be no darkness - and where there is darkness, there can be no light and your mind is darkness personfied! that is why it is said you must free yourself of your mind.” ~unknown
  25. Too many steps have been taken returning to the root and the source. Better to have been blind and deaf from the beginning! Dwelling in one’s true abode, unconcerned with that without - The river flows tranquilly on and the flowers are red. ~Zen~
