  1. ਜੇ ਸਾਰੀ ਖੇੜ ਕਰਮਾ ਦੀ ਹੈ , ਤੇ ਫੇਰ ਰਹਿਮਤ ਕਿਥੇ ? Its an established axiom in indian faiths (that includes sikhism) that whatever we sow, we shall reap. Accordingly , good karams fetches happiness , bad karams fetches suffering. This raises some particularly interesting question, especially when related to sikhism. Sikhism unlike other indian religions stress on rehmat of god , more than individual action. In this regard , its more similar in thought to sufi kalaam. Sikh gurus have even stressed to an extent that one cannot do anything , god is "kartaa" of everything. So , if effect of karams cannot be extinguished except by bearing it (either by happiness or sorrow) , then in such an automatic system of universe, where does waheguru's rehmat / kirpa comes into pic ?
  2. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh PROBLEM CONTEXT I am living/ working in a country for a few months where there are no Sikhs, let alone a Gurudwara. I've tried contacting via FB etc, there is no sangat near me. My team is nice, we get along fine. I do not at all feel even the slightest temptation to drink alcohol, touch meat (vegertarian options without egg are so scarce here), have relationships with other travellers or remove my body hair (even though it is 50 degrees heat and everyone is wearing singlets and shorts going to the beach). I know this is all Guru Ji's help. 2 years ago I was drinking and vomiting in toilets, having sex with strangers, removing as much body hair as I could and thinking i was a 'spiritual person' I know I've been addicted to alcohol, cannabis, MDMA and the fact I have no desire now isn't something I am capable of- this is Guru Ji's working. THE PROBLEM I'm really starting to miss my Amritvela. I used to so freely wake up, shower, do simran and nitnem and not worry. now I have to worry about so many things with my roommate, especially as she sleeps so late. Even though I don't complain of her sleeping late (perhaps I should, tactfully?) she will say things like "I couldn't sleep because I heard your alarm so I've been up since very early." This makes me feel super guilty. Extra guilty because I'm so TIRED that I don't even remember hearing the alarm myself or turning it off... I DONT WAKE UP AT AMRITVELA. i end up waking up around 5.30-6am so amritvela is long-gone. Since my time being here, I've only once had the chance to do amritvela freely, and that is when everyone had gone out drinking/ clubbing for the night and came home late. When I do my nitnem I don't say it aloud because she is always in the room (and a different faith so i don't want to ever feel like I'm forcing or invading personal space). But man. I miss doing simran aloud- feeling my throat muscles saying Waheguru and closing my eyes so my ears could hear my body speak Waheguru. Be grateful to Waheguru for allowing my body, my lips to be blessed with the beauty of their Naam. The sweetness in my mouth, the warmth of the love but the cool breeze of peace settling in my head, sinking into my heart...anyway Imma get senti real quick lol. So please. I understand my current situation is resultant of karams from this life and previous. But I want help in improving my new karams that I'm (not) earning every moment. How do I wake up at Amritvela? Need help with how to 1. Ask to turn lights off earlier because I can't sleep until ALL lights are off (which doesn't happen till around 11pm) 2. Shower without feeling guilty about making noise and waking her up too early 3. Sing Gurbani aloud. I'm scared I'll get into a bad habit if I keep doing this and become lazy in the future. And any other advice you could offer would be highly appreciated
  3. Dhan Dhan Guru Ram Das ji. Waheguru does kirpa on Ragi Bhai Manmohan Singh. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10154644547042791&id=240716567790&__tn__=*s*s-R
  4. Gurfateh Ji, Is anyone going or gone through the avasta where they just want life to end now? Not as in suicide but asking Guru Sahib with a powerful ardaas. More due to biraag of Gurbani, Naam kamai and also experiences of life which have detached one from many worldly things. I will add more to this if any Gursikh piyaara can relate. Akaal

    I once had a dream where

    I once had a dream, short one, remember only bits.... I was in this huge hall, there was gold everywhere, the walls, the floors, the the huge cavernous ceilings. The hall was packed with Singhs and Singhnees all running around having fun. There were multicolored gatka Chakrees being spun, people playing gatka, and I say playing not learning shastar vidya because it was like a festival. There was only anand, not meditative but just pure happiness, joyous, bubbling. Everything was so colourful so amazingly vibrant, khalsa orange and blue all mixing with the gold background. I sat down in front of a vaja, with some people as well i think, and just started playing. I've never learned kirtan before so when the music sprang to life and my fingers played with intuitive ease I was even more happy. I think their was simran going on, I can't remember because its been so long since I've thought about this dream. I remember how much I wished as I slept again the next few nights that I could visit that place again. My bhag have been bad/good depending on your view since then. I haven't been as spiritual, infact I almost made a 180 turn. things look so bleak sometimes. I say bad because of the decreased spirituality, I say good because I've been saved from disgrace by those around me, so far, hopefully I haven't used up all of the kamayee from previous janams. Its all waheguru ji's bana I guess. But I really hate this maya jal, but then to hate something is to not except that it is a part of god, and therefore your rejecting that god is everything. And doing that will get you nowhere. It feels pointless sometimes........this atma and the jot hidden inside it............this drop of water can't mix into the ocean without being spared and given good fortune by the ocean itself. The point of this game is lost to me. It's like having a massive basketball court with no hoops and very few people have a ball. And its only when the court decides certain people have a chance they are allowed to shoot, and even then it may not go in. I just felt like sharing what I was feeling.
