    Why Working Less Is Better For The Globe

    I agree with the quote, by making everything more advanced in this modern era it requires more work to maintain. Technological advancements come with their benefits but also with disadvantages. An increasing population throughout the globe is putting a strain on resources. Instead of all these big shopping centres if we just used that land to grow food etc it would be better, considering how most things can be bought online, the actual need for shops is rapidly decreasing. Simples lives are happier lives.

    Another Fight

    what was the fight about?
  3. yeah exactly, I don't feel I'm ready to take Amrit and if I did I feel I'd be doing a disrespect because of my lack of knowledge at the moment about prayer and Gurbani

    Can Gurbani Cure Diseases

    By reading Gurbani, reciting mool mantar and prayers and contemplating upon Waheguru's name, the soul is cleansed. It is written in Gurbani (not an exact quote) that if our clothes become stained, we can wash them out and they can become clean again, but if the soul becomes stained then the only way to cleanse it is through prayer. By accepting Waheguru and his will your wordly matters come to a conclusion, the only thing your mind becomes fixated upon is Waheguru so in a way you are rid of diseases because your mind no longer cares for it. With the True Guru's help the disease can be rid completely but only with unbreakable concentration upon Waheguru. Wordly afflictions is what comes with life on this Earth, Waheguru wants us to get to a point where we only focus upon him, where we break all bonds with matters of this Earth and increase our connection with the all powerful Waheguru, something I dream of achieving one day.
  7. What will happen after kalyug? I understand that some of you will opt for an approach explaining how it doesn't matter and I should just focus on becoming closer to Waheguru. I agree but I would still like to get an idea, I have heard people saying it will be a world full of Sikhs and need extra opinions as to whether this is true or not.

    Feel That I Am A Looser

    In life we all go through hard times, times where we don't know where to turn, we can't see a way out. Life is like that, a journey we take, in the forest of life we have to walk through the deep mud, the mud that can hold us back and keep us in the same place for years. When darkness falls upon that forest there is a light, a light faint to some, others a bright beacon, that light, that beacon, is God. The light is dim for those whom don't believe and it is hard to find the true path out of that forest but for those who believe, the light of God illuminates the forest, showing clearly the right path to safety. A lot of people walk amongst this forest lost, never knowing where to go and going in circles, blaming themselves, blaming anything that comes to mind. The snakes will come out, snakes lurking amongst the dusk ready to strike at your mind, these snakes are most friends in life, once you allow them to bite, their venom will poison your mind, you will lose the desire to seek out God, you will begin to doubt yourself and lose hope and once they have taken away that desire will slither away again into the dusk waiting for their next "friend". There is one true friend whom you can put your trust in, one whom if you even utter his name once will scare away the vile creatures in life, and that is Waheguru. Once you allow your mind to feel the power and grace of God, whatever problems you face he will show you the path you need, do not worry about others whom try to dishearten you, most likely they are also lost in the forest of life, because they can't find a way out, they try to make sure others can't get out either. Never lose faith in Waheguru, keep your faith as strong as steel and as you sing the praises of God, your troubles will fade, the name of Waheguru will wash away your fears and anxiety and will cocoon you. Peace

    Religion In Modern Times

    I think the bottom line is, people wanting to join religion these days is just the same reason people join gangs, they want to defend their beliefs with the option of violence, people who have grown up in fear or wanting protection seek out these groups to become protected. Sikhism is not a violent religion, we do not go out of our way to inflict pain or intimidation, only provoked or in danger may we think about something like that and because of that people feel they need to leave. These days people, whether it be in religion, careers, gangs, organisations all want to be part of a group, to follow the crowd forgetting that the true purpose of life is to become closer to God, this idea has been lost amongst a lot of people and only when it is too late will they realise. They want to feel protected under mere mortals forgetting the all powerful creator, God is the one whom we should be wanting to meet, he is the one whom protects us when we may not even know it, always looking over us. The world doesn't need violence, intimidation or fear, what is the point in ruling a planet of death? this Earth is nothing, it is fake, a mirage. The true kingdom is the one belonging to God, whom he is the supreme ruler, the ruler over everything in existence. Science has corrupted the minds of the people, whilst finding cures for illness and disease it has allowed them to find a reason not to believe in God, the human ego will lead to the destruction of the non believers of God, they don't want to believe that there is a higher power, they think the human race is the most intelligent and advanced race in all of existence. Their ego will be their ultimate undoing. This is what I say to my fellow Sikhs, concentrate on your connection with God, rally with the true believers of God for everyone else is lost unless they find belief in God by themselves. They only have to look around in nature, look down at the tiny insects whom forage for food amongst the grain of the Earth to the skies where the birds soar across the horizon to feel the power of God, how intricate in design life is. How every living creature has a purpose in relation to all life as a whole. Religion only shows you how to connect with God, the practical side of it is up to the person. Do not worry about the people who leave Sikhism, who join other religions or those who don't believe at all because it is in God's will that this is happening, praise Waheguru, love Waheguru and everything will be fine. Even if you feel lost, with no hope, everything around you seems to be falling apart, the only one whom can truly pick up the broken pieces of your life and construct a foundation for you to build your future, is God. God is everywhere all around us, his essence is embedded within all of creation, embedded within the universe. His power knows no limits, so do not seek out mere mortals for help, do not look for the aid of mortals to build your future, it is only God who can truly help you, help humanity as a whole. Peace

    Sikhs Converting To Islam

    Sometimes people won't listen, let them do what they want, if they want to leave Sikhism so be it, concentrate on your connection with God.

    What Are Your Troubles In Life?

    Hey and no problem I'm happy to talk to you about it, It seems to me that you've done everything you can to try and change the way the marriage is working out but it's not working. You need to think about YOUR future, not your husbands right now because it seems to me he is being very neglectful to you for no reason. If you feel you need to leave then I think that's something you need to think about, but I'm not saying it's something you definitely should do. You need to love Waheguru and pray to him as much as you can. Wash your hands and sit in a crossed leg position on the floor, cover your hair with a piece of clothing put your hands together and just concentrate on the name Waheguru, keep saying it and don't think about anything else, forget your worries, forget your anxiety whilst you're praying. After it you should feel much more relaxed and less stressed out. Waheguru will help you as long as you seek out to grow a connection with Waheguru. If you have a dream that you feel you need to go out and try to achieve, I think you should do it, everyone deserves a chance to fulfill their ambitions and you'll regret it if you don't when you're older, the years will have gone by with your husband neglecting you unless he changes his ways in that time. You need to find out why he's neglecting you and work on it from there but it if he doesn't help you, ask God for help, ask him everyday and one day he will. There are no certain rules and regulations to a marriage, other than to stay faithful to your partner etc. Every marriage works differently and it all depends on a love that one another should share. Try and stay with your own family for a while away from him if you have to until you figure things out. Don't worry about what other people say because you need to make sure you're happy in your life, it's YOUR life and other people shouldn't dictate it. If you need to say anything just reply, Peace

    You hang onto that hope, that hope is your light and without that light shining in the darkness that this world can bring, you will fall into a deep dark path and it's going to be so hard to get out, I know because I've been through it and still am. You keep that hope and focus your efforts onto whatever you want in life. You got the job you wanted now keep it, be the best you can be at it because at the end of the day when you're older and you look back on life you can say that you never gave up and you worked to your limit to achieve what you wanted to achieve. The ones around you can look at you for hope to show them that if they want it hard enough they can do it. See when you achieve something you wanted, it's a domino effect, you inspire those around you and they inspire those around them. There is way too much hurt in this world and we need people that can do what they set out to do. Don't have "self worth" issues because no one is worth more or less than the next person, what makes us better in life is character, character is what set's you apart from other people, nothing letting that light be blown out, you protect what's yours and be thankful that you can, be thankful to God because God is the one who helps us through everything. If you put your trust and faith in God you'll be amazed at what you can achieve. Keep your head up, don't give up. Peace
