Idea - Big Bold Steps To Live Spiritual Life - Tv, Loan, Gadgets

Recommended Posts

My ideas..

1. NO TV - Cut cable, netflix etc off. Absolutely no over-use of TV. There maybe positive channels like discover/travel channels but overall tv has more negatives than positives. Not worth it. I am not suggesting to cut it off immediately. Start it from trimming your channel packages and slowly-slowly get rid of it.

2. NO LOAN - Take no loan. Exception can be made on house but other than that no loan on phones, cars, credit-cards etc. The reason is because your mind get caught in this vile maya circle and one tends to get too busy in earning/paying-off these loans. Precious time to remember waheguru gets over taken by tension of assets/liabilities etc

3. Gadgets - Phone is for phone. keep it that simple. Don't use it other than calling purposes. Sure one can use to take pictures but spending hours and hours looking at phone screen is another way that our mind wants to steal our spiritual time. Keep kids under 10 away from all gadgets. Keep your phone and tablets away from toilets. Certainly don't take your phone with you to bed. Don't let phone/tablet dictates you on how to live your life. You need to show all of them their right place.

I agree all these gadgets just keep us inside away from doing stuff that is good for us our health/

we need to spend more time outdoors. in the park, taking part in sport, gardening, hobbies.

Not on the computer all day like some zombie.

    • Can UK Sikh community sue the BBC?  Why they use term Sikh In such cases even U.K. does not identify Sikhs as different race identity. 
    • Singh ji, all posts with hyperlinks gets automated in the queue of need of moderation approvals. (Including YouTube links).
    • The way I see it is that it depends on the spiritual stage of the couple. Remember we are not robots programmed to act in a such manner. There is no program/software put in us to behave only in such particular way.   Giving example based on original topic here. One couple who are amritdhari but their spiritual jeevani is at - let say beginner level.  They believe issues like eating outside or sexting between them is ok. This is because their inner mind (spiritual level) does not make them think that it is wrong ‘yet’.  Now another couple who are practicing Sikhi at high spiritual level and their mind says to refrain eating outside and indulge in any sexting etc etc at all cost. That is their gurmat oriented Khalsa lifestyle.   They both are Sikh couple at different spiritual stage. There is no quick fix to make the young couple think otherwise, unless they advance to the higher spirituality with help of sangat and their own self-discipline.    Now you will also see folks following rules to refrain from certain things such as above 2 issues.. but the only negative part is that they are doing it without their inner spiritual awakening. Now, it is always good to have rules for newbie to follow but it is a temporary roadmap bridge to get on high ground of spirituality. We have lot of those folks who are stuck at that ‘suppose to be temporary bridge’ and not moving forward. To them rules are rules but to understand behind those rules, they will only understand the real meaning when they have their own spiritual awakening. Until then we will see negative  cases like divorces, them being victims of Panj vikars etc etc.
    • Same as today any writer can write about general majority of Sikhs being non-turbaned, drinking or some smoking. 100 years later we cannot simply believe that they were the actual Sikh. Just like in past there were actual Sikhs who followed guru path and some who were on and off that path with their weakness. Maharaja Ranjit is the perfect example of a Sikh who was not a Sikh in our guru eyes with his lifestyle.
