  2. WJKK WJKF Whilst reading Jap Ji Sahib I had a thought. The pauri ਆਖਣਿ ਜੋਰੁ ਚੁਪੈ ਨਹ ਜੋਰੁ॥ ਜੋਰੁ ਨ ਮੰਗਣਿ ਦੇਣਿ ਨ ਜੋਰੁ॥ ਜੋਰੁ ਨ ਜੀਵਣਿ ਮਰਣਿ ਨਹ ਜੋਰੁ॥ ਜੋਰੁ ਨ ਰਾਜਿ ਮਾਲਿ ਮਨਿ ਸੋਰੁ॥ ਜੋਰੁ ਨ ਸੁਰਤੀ ਗਿਆਨਿ ਵੀਚਾਰਿ॥ ਜੋਰੁ ਨ ਜੁਗਤੀ ਛੁਟੈ ਸੰਸਾਰੁ॥ ਜਿਸੁ ਹਥਿ ਜੋਰੁ ਕਰਿ ਵੇਖੈ ਸੋਇ॥ ਨਾਨਕ ਉਤਮੁ ਨੀਚੁ ਨ ਕੋਇ॥ Where Guruji states No power to speak, no power to keep silent. jor na mangan dayn na jor. No power to beg, no power to give. jor na jeevan maran nah jor. No power to live, no power to die. jor na raaj maal man sor. No power to rule, with wealth and occult mental powers. jor na surtee gi-aan veechaar. No power to gain intuitive understanding, spiritual wisdom and meditation. jor na jugtee chhutai sansaar. No power to find the way to escape from the world. jis hath jor kar vaykhai so-ay. He alone has the Power in His Hands. He watches over all. naanak utam neech na ko-ay. ||33|| O Nanak, no one is high or low. ||33|| Guruji is stating that we have no power to do anything, so we ultimately Waheguru is controlling everything as we cannot. So if Waheguru created this play and everyone inside the play is controlled, why are we then judged “good” or “bad” when we die or go to “hell” if Waheguru has control over us and we have no power? I am not trying to create an argument but just confused as to how we have no power but we also get judged? Phul Chuk Maff
  3. An old thought, but what is the point in blaming anyone or anything, if it is already written to do so? Thieves or saints, why praise saints, if they were destined for it?
  4. I'm confused, someone said people have no free will. Do we have free will? Or does God do everything? So do we make a decision to Jap Naam, or does waheguru make certain people jap naam? If wahguru does make everything happen then why do we get good or bad karam? We did not choose to do something, waheguru made us do it. So why are we rewarded or punished for that deed? Or did that guy get it completely wrong?
