She needs someone to talk. That really understand her. Some deep conversation, where she can talk about all her feelings and troubles. Bhenji, there seem to be roots of your conflict - please tell us - what do you think about your situation - life etc... There is some trigger for your SItuation.Just freely talk. What kind of faith do you have? Praying alone doesnt help anyone - you need to contemplte the words of gurbani -- understand them - in thedepth and then integrate it to your life. You seem to have a uni polar depression and mood swing. DO you do Sports or any physical activity?

Your anonymous - feel free to tell us ANYTHING. I will try my best to help..

Not sure if this has direct relevance but a Penji of mine sent me an email when I had similar feelings.. Here it is...

When you feel like giving up...

The thing that helps me the most is the thing that Gurbani says hardly anybody does - remember death! If we always had it on our minds, we wouldn't go wrong and the truth is we'd dedicate every breath and every thought to the remembrance of Vaheguru, because He's the only One who can save us in the end. It stops us from being lazy, it'll get us out of bed when we're tired and it'll stop us from making so many mistakes... death is inevitable, everyone likes to ignore it, but we all know it could be around the corner for any of us. Remembering this, we don't have time to waste- what if I die tomorrow? I will have wasted all this time I've used sitting around on the internet, and that's it. Life's gone. You'll regret it but you won't have the chance to do anything about it... now is our time, unless we wanna face the scariest thing ever or lose our chance at meeting God- our father, mother, friend, our everything- and be thrown into another life form. Gurbani portrays the experience of dying and afterwards to be brutal...

baaki vaalaa talibeeai sir maare jandar jeeo
One who has karmic debt to pay off is summoned, and the Messenger of Death smashes his head.

Our physical bodies can only endure a certain amount of pain before we pass out or die, but our souls will have to endure pain that we can't even comprehend. Only will we have God's help after we die, and all the way through this life which in itself is described to be a treacherous ocean, if we give up the worldly attachments and dedicate ourselves to serving God... that means living in rehat, showing your love for God through following His hukam and worshipping Him. If we truly do this, in return he'll look after us and ultimately save us... "jan naanak aesa har sevia, anth lai shadaiaa". Even on this journey, after we've taken Amrit, if we follow rehat Guru Gobind Singh promises to be by our sides always. Could there be anything more amazing?.. That should give everyone something to work towards. Guru Sahib says:

thaerae galehi thouk pag baeree
The chain is around your neck, and the cuffs are on your feet.

thoo ghar ghar rameeai faeree
The Lord has send you wandering from house to house.

thoo ajahu n chethas chaeree
And still, you do not meditate on the Lord, O soul bride, slave.

Thoo jam bapuree hai haeree
Death is watching you, O wretched woman.

We don't have an unlimited amount of time and Guru Ji says that whatever you have to do, do it now... we have one chance to make it, we can either win or lose. Also, I remember that this whole world and everything we see is simply an illusion- nothing is real, nothing. Everything we've experienced, everything that happens to us every day, it's all a false show set up by Him... so pain and pleasure is only in our minds. Every hardship is a test to see whether we'll still hold on to Vaheguru. Every happiness is a test to see if we'll still remember Vaheguru. When we realise that, everything else becomes less significant and we can focus more on Him and forget all the other thoughts buzzing around our heads...

Remember to be at the stage you're at now in your Sikhi is a blessing and few people get this gift. If Vaheguru didn't think you could go the full way you wouldn't have been given this opportunity! You might feel like you can't do it or that you're not worthy of it, or that you'll never get there... I feel like that a lot too... but we simply can't do anything ourselves. We can only do this with Guru's Grace. So do ardaas and ask- beg for help. If we keep thinking about how crap we are and how we can't do this, we'll waste our lives doing this. Just keep looking forward and taking small steps every day, or week!

If you want to motivate yourself you can do things like; watching one video a day, a talk or katha, eg. from Khalsa Camp. It really helps you remember all this and you go to bed thinking about it, wake up for amrit vela easily because you've been thinking about it. Also, you learn loadss in a short space of time! Another thing, which might be difficult and not really your choice, is to keep yourself in good sangat as much as you can... people who will stop you from drifting away from Sikhi and people who'll inspire you to go forwards! We all have friends who chat about useless things and keep your mind thinking about Maya, and thinking that the world is real. A lot of Gursikhs say that it's imperative to ask for Gursikhi sangat in your ardaas... really does make a big difference when you and your friend are always talking about Sikhi and helping each other, rather than talking about TV or w/e!

Hope this helpeddd in some way, even a bit of it! Sorry if I said anything irrelevant or wrong
Hope you're okay :)

Waheguru. Thank you for the replies. Yeah I should have told a bit about myself first. I have taken amrit, i am 18, studying, listen to katha and kirtan regularly. Nothing dramatic has happened in life, thankfully. I cry constantly, day and night, literally.

A poster above said to remember death. Being very very truthful to you all and myself, I actualy think i look forward to death. I don't mind dying.

i just see the whole world-purpose of being here- all just blank really, i don't know how to say it. like I do no care at all .

I try and do sewa and simran when i can.

even my own parent don't care. and it doen't even bother me now. Gods sake I just feel like smashing my head against a brick wall and ripping myself apart.

Before anyone asks the reason to that...I do not know myself. Feel so sad, for a reason which I myself do not know, if there even is a reason.

waheguru.

Sorry if I have said anything wrong. just been trying to poorly express my feelings.

Bhenjee try doing Sukhmani Sahib pathh everyday. If you can do panj granthi. I have been in the same place as you, not knowing what in the world what made me sad. And then I realized my Atma is sad because I was not feeding it Baani. Please bhenjee try doing Sukhmani Sahib path atleast for a week..You will see a difference, I guarantee. Also make sure your Amritvela is strict. You might need to put an effort in doing some bhagti, but it will all work out. :)

Such feelings come into mind, when there is nothing in this world you can stick to.. You have no connection or good feeling to anything here. Furthermore as you said , nothing 'dramatical ' has happend in your life - that does mean that you are waiting for something to happen -you want something to happen - that effects you. You feel helpless, not heard and lonley... And if you ask yourself the question : And take stock of yourself - you will come to the same conclusion. You need happiness in live - a person you can trust ... that makes you laugh... Make you feel that you are wanted here - makes boundaries with you .



I would like love to help you - but need more Information.

Ever heard and tried 'Sikhi Helpline'? Altough I am not from 'Britain', I would embosom you to do this.. It needssome self conquest - but just try it.


BTW: Do you do any physical activites?

Maybe you make an account , so I can help you out about - but if you don´t want stay anonymous :)

Don´t be down in the mouth!

Waheguru!

Guru Sahib blessed you with Amrit which means you should be a brave daughter of Guru Gobind Singh ji Maharaaj

Do Seva as much as you can, it will definately make you feel better. Do you do alot of seva?

You do have your rehet , naam simran, all the nitnem intact right? This is very important. Guru Sahib is our doctor. He knows how to make us better. If you follow him, no sadness will ever touch you. Do you try to do all these?

feel worse than ever right now. Igo to the school gym-that is the only sports activity, and i walk daily to and from.

I cry whilst running on the tredmilil, cry in my exams im fed up with myself.

I keep rehat with gods grace, so far ive tried my best in sikhi aspects.

But dont have any force/power supply in me.

i feel dead already-just a walking zombie.

Everyone just takes advantage ofme aswell.

Dont understand me at all-i mean AT ALL.

i walk away from my group of mates all the time-go and sit in a corner on the grass at dinner.

sometimes i go to the gurdwara and just gaze at the walls and cry.

compleely fed up. 'akk gey life naal'. full stop.

With all the great supportive help already given and suggested by our fellow brothers and sisters - I urge ANYONE that feels sad/depressed/lost etc to Japp Naam (of course) and also please get a full blood test done - SOMETIMES if we lack certain vitamins/minerals etc etc in our body - our body and mind will react in anyway possible to show that it's not fully 'happy.'

Guru Ji ki kirpa I work in medicine and believe it or not sometimes if we don't have enough WATER in our body - our body can become depressed/angry etc - Guru Ji has made our body absolutely amazing - we should atleast try to see are we nurturing it correctly. Make sure you get enough outside air too (go into your garden, park etc - being indoors can depress you.

Bhenjee you are young (18! :) - you have SO much to look forward to e.g. a glorious Singh to marry some day, beautiful adorable little babies

On the whole ANYONE that's feel down etc dont give into negative thinking - consider it to be Kaljug - whenever you feel sad etc - think of it as a trigger for you to do Simran.

Also - having lack of actitvity in your life can make you feel sad; how can ANYONE of us think 'we are ready to die' - how many of us have done ATLEAST one Sehj Path of Guru Granth Sahib Ji? We havent even met our Guru Ji in Person (Ang 1 - 1430).

3 things:

- Blood test

- Drink water, get fresh air - change your surroundings - go to India

- Do Sehj Path of Guru Granth Sahib Ji

    • The old man states that it was his father, kulwant singh, son of Hira Singh, that converted. Kulwant Singh was married to Khem Singh Bedi's granddaughter. It's interesting how he describes the process. His father had travelled to Iran and came under Islamic influence during his extended stay. Came back and started dining with muslims. Sikhs got suspicious and started harassing him to quit his islamic leaning. Kulwant singh took off with his wife, from one village to the next, with sikhs in pursuit, until he landed in a more powerful caste muslim village, where he settled in safety and cut his hair. The wife had little choice left I suppose and was renamed Zainab Bibi. The old man states that he recalls his mother as being mentally deranged during his childhood due to the trauma of separation from her whole extended family members. Even he seems to realize what an <banned word filter activated> decision his father made to convert as they lived in poverty afterwards, coming from powerful clans that owned thousands of acres of lands. At one point, the old man says his dad used to say " we come from a kaum that is the sardar of all kaums" (referring to his own Sikh origins). I'm sure kulwant singh regretted his decision, especially since 47' buried all possibility of reversal.
    • Don't think it's related to badals veerji. In my previous posts and in posts by other Sangat members a few years ago, they mentioned about how Khalsa Raj is in our lifetime. Many people like to dismiss this unfortunately and have no faith in Bachans of Mahapurakhs. What They tell us is just the end result. Khalsa Raj is going to happen in our lifetime, but when many people hear this they think we are referring to it happening magically without any work. All the events that are happening now are towards preparation of Khalsa Raj and all of these are in Vaheguru ji's khel. Bad times will be for those who do tyranny Bhul Chuk Maf ji Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh ji
    • It's about time they pivot back to the Panth, even if out of compulsion. Sadly though, many of our brethren back home will side with AAP and Kejriwals puppet, Bhagwant Mann, and actually oppose this message by pinning it as a survival attempt by Badal through proxy. Sitting from afar, it just goes to show what a convoluted mess we have back home.

    • I think we have no option but to accept [which we should, as Sikhs] and come to terms with the worldview of Guru Maharaj, based off of what we can gather from both Gurbani sources and other historical sources like rehitnamay etc. It’s the only way we can keep our sense of sanity and integrity in the chaotic middle gray space we find ourselves in, wedged in between competing megalithic civilizations. Our doctrines and ideals can’t be reformulated to suit the current whims of the people they serve because of the relative proximity to evidence our emergence timeline presents. Regarding your point about our parcharks (post-partition), I agree with you. I have also wondered the same listening to the visiting gyanis. I doubt the schools they learned from had any serious Arabic/Isalmic studies programs, lol. Probably, they had rudimentary commentaries akin to those high-school level world religion books. I think most paracharks are genuinely completely in the dark about the darkside of Islam. Add to that the ambiguity of  sarbat da bhala without the asterisk.  I won’t get into Gurbani references in this post, but what is interesting is the rehitnamas and other 18th century and 19th century literature. It’s quite blunt in regards to Islam. Even our Four Kurehits appear more like a direct condemnation of Islamic customs, ie hooka hajamat halalo haram. The complete separation of food, habitation, and family from muslims that our elders practiced right upto partition speaks volumes. I think we have enough material to formulate a more appropriate approach to Islam and Muslims that won’t involve us holding umbrellas over them and renovating back old mosques. These next gen parcharks have info so readily available on youtbue, it just needs to be understood and disseminated in Punjabi now.
