  1. Keep doing simran. Weird symptoms are normal, just ignore it
  2. fix your health including exercise and eating. fix your sleep: http://khojee.wordpress.com/2012/01/29/shabad-to-cure-insomnia/
  3. the dark night of the soul is an important process for one's spiritual growth. you cant stop it by distracting yourself. it's impossible to run away from it for long b/c it's always there. but you can get through it. all you have to do is keep on keeping on. be patient. the magic formula here is seva simran satsangat ardass.
  4. your friendships are based on karmic relationships of give and take between each other. when the karma is finished than the natural attraction of the friendship also finishes. let them go if need be. also, worlldy people, and even religious people, frequently don't want you to change b/c they have some sort of benefit from you remaining the same. if you change they lose that benefit. listen to your soul and you can't go wrong. you will make new friend.s
  5. Sant ji was forced to tell Sikhs to defend themselves after police forces repeatedly tortured and even killed innocent nonviolently protesting sikhs. Before the level of violence against protesters was ratcheted up Sant ji would tell people to not resist arrest and to remain nonviolent. Afterwards he told them to get away and not get arrested by any means necessary. The government controlled newspapers spread propaganda against the movement and the actions of the government itself backed him into a corner. However, he very clearly, in front of the entire world, followed to the letter Guru ji's
  6. if you do it consistently for 3 days you will find that it's much easier after that. just tough it out for 2 or 3 days.
  7. eventually a stage comes when you do need a guide, but i believe circumstances will be created to connect you with one when you need it. i wouldn't worry about it. shaking happens to me to, its normal.
  8. gupt singh, having a job gives a person great solace, b/c they know they can take care of themselves if they have to. it lets a person stand up for what is right b/c you no longer depend on the person who is promoting the wrong. i would get a job and do lots of simran and sangat. this you you become stronger externally and internally. then just do it. don't ask her. sometimes parents just bluff to try to control their kids. and if you do lose her, the truth is she was never yours to begin with!!
  9. go to satsangat everyday. there is salvation there and shelter. the energy of meditating in sangat is immensely powerful. over time this energy will build up the power inside of you, you will be empowered to change your bad habits and to stand tall again. when dealing with wrongs from the past i find that two things are very very important. one is to forgive others and ourselves too. the second is to learn what we can from it. sometimes people ask why did this happen? b/c we almost never receive confirmation of the reason why this question can destroy our peace of mind. don't bother asking
  10. if it doesn't cover the head it's not a topi. it's fine. but i do feel singhs should wear dastars and not duo rags as Guru ji's hukam is to wear dastar and not to copy rappers.
  11. If the love for Guru ji is inside your heart than your outer actions will reflect this love. If it doesn't matter how temples are decorated then why do devotees everywhere of all dharms keep their temples clean and decorate them with offerings? love. love shows in your actions. In one of the puratan granths it is written that Guru ji was asked why kesh must be kept. 'This is the modern day, so why keep it as it's not necessary?' asked the questioner. Guru ji said the sun, the moon, the air, the ground etc, all of these things are the same as in previous ages. But the difference is that in
  12. veer ji, Guru ji's Hukam is that an Amritdhari can only marry another Amritdhari. Not marry someone, and then have them take Amrit afterwards. so be careful before getting in too deep. also, sikhs are not allowed to mess about before marriage, not even a little. Not saying that you're doing that btw, but gorian usually have different mindsets. Race and caste shouldn't be issues for Sikhs, unless you're thinking about them in terms of cultural compatibility.

    anyone can take Amrit, regardless of whether they are bald or not.
  14. Exactly, the above passage also emphasizes the different FORMS of the Guru.
  15. your parents, like most parents, probably prioritize academic and career achievement along with rishtay over all else. if you can show them examples of singhs who have excelled and show them that sikhi will not harm your education they may calm down a bit. also, if you make a lot of changes all at once that may be too much for them. maybe introduce only one or two changes at a time after Amrit to ease them into it. people have something invested in you remaining how you always were. when you change it upsets the status quo and the fight to keep their investment safe. maybe they want to rem
  16. The Khalsa Panth is Guru ROOP, not the Guru itself, similar to how the punj pyare are Guru roop. This makes sense b/c the Guru is one, and does not hold opinions or beliefs that contradict himself. But the panth has different groups in it with different beliefs. A self-contradicting Guru makes no sense. Additionally, there is a sakhi from the time of the jungs with the hill rajas. The Khalsa was crushing their armies when the Guru sent his messenger with the message to the Sikhs to turn back and cease the battle. The Khalsa ignored him thinking that they were so powerful and amazing and non

    I Had A Dream.

    Thank you for sharing that beautiful dream. sometimes we have darshan of the Guru in our dream too. this is real. Later on we get darshan in real life. I would guess that, yes, it was real. Listen to your intuition, what does it say?
  18. take a look at what skills you are good at look at what skills you like using the intersection of the two provides a whole range of career opportunities to explore, the idea being that you will enjoy your job more and do better at it if you are using your strengths. also, look back in life at when you are at your most content/ happiest. the skills used in those moments could give hints into what type of career might be best for you. once you come up with some ideas it owould be helpful to schedule informational interviews with people in those fields, maybe even job shadow them for a day o
  19. you're trying too hard to focus. just do it in a relaxed way and there won't be pain.
  20. You should ask Tirath Singh. He is a poster on Sikh awareness who actually did study Sikhi at a higher level. He also has experience with both the traditional and western styles of teaching Sikh studies. He's probably your best bet in starting your search. N3O should have his contact info.
  21. http://www.alessiorastani.net/ten-words-that-changed-my-life/ I am sure you’ve heard plenty of “This changed my life” stories. But today as I turn 36, I thought I would share with you something that not only completely changed my life for the better but it could well change yours as well. When I look back at the past 13 years, I can remember two events that were huge turning points in my life. The first was when I read a superb book given to me by my friend Samuel who was an ex-Goldman Sachs trader (I’ll tell you about this book in the next few weeks). The second was when I attended a spe
  22. it's not ocd. if you think about something a lot, it creates a habit. so now, even without trying, this habit creates more and more of these kinds of thoughts. now that the thoughts are there and you want to get rid of them, you focus on them even more. the more you focus on them, the more energy they are given. and so the cycle of thoughts happens even more. anytime you watch, read, think about, hang around with any person or thing that is somewhat sex promoting then that will reinforce the thoughts. the best way to deal with it is to focus on other things. like naam/bani, seva, school/work
  23. the third eye is one of the energy centres in the body. as one progresses along the spiritual path these centres begin to open up. you don't even have to think about it or focus on them for this to happen. however, it does take time and for someone to have an open third eye is quite rare. once open, it allows you to see into the spiritual world. however, in the grand scheme of things, it is not considered to be an advanced stage.
  24. Awesome article .Would love to see it printed on leaflets and distributed at nagar kirtans or something. it does, however, require one more proofread for grammer. Great work.
