SELF  INTROSPECTION 

 

I was Cycling this morning and I noticed a person about half a mile ahead. 

I could guess he was Cycling a little slower than me and that made me feel good, 
I said to myself I will try catch up with him.

So I started Cycling faster and faster. Every block, I was gaining on him a little bit. 
After just a few minutes I was only about 100 feet behind him, 
so I really picked up the pace and pushed myself. 
I was determined to catch up with him.

Finally, I did it! I caught up and passed him. Inwardly I felt very good. "I beat him". 

Of course, he didn't even know we were racing. 

After I passed him, 
I realized I had been so focused on competing against him that 
I had missed my turn to my house .

I had missed the focus on my inner peace, 
I missed to see the beauty of greenery around, 
I missed to do my inner soul searching meditation, 
and in the needless hurry feet slipped from the paddle twice or thrice and might have hit the sidewalk and broken a limb.

It then dawned on me, isn't that what happens in life when we focus on competing with 
co-workers, neighbours, 
friends, 
family, 
trying to outdo them 
or trying to prove that we are more successful 
or more important and in the bargain 
we miss on our happiness within our own surroundings?

We spend our time and energy running after them and we miss out on our own paths to our given destination. 

The problem with unhealthy competition is that it's a never ending cycle.

There will always be somebody ahead of you, 
someone with a better job, 
nicer car, 
more money in the bank, 
more education, 
a prettier wife, 
a more handsome husband, 
better behaved children, 
better circumstances and 
better conditions etc.
 
But one important realisation is that 'You can be the best that you can be, when you are not competing with anyone.'

Some people are insecure because they pay too much attention to 
what others are, 
where others are going, 
wearing and driving, what others are talking.  

Take whatever you have, 
the height, the weight and personality.  Accept it and realize, that you are blessed. Stay focused and live a healthy life. 

There is no competition in Destiny. Each has his own.

Comparison AND Competition  is the thief of JOY. 
It kills the Joy of Living your Own Life.

Run your own Race that leads to Peaceful, Happy Steady Life.
😇

“Khusrau darya prem ka, ulti wa ki dhaar, 
Jo utra so doob gaya, jo dooba so paar. 

English Translation:

Oh Khusrau, the river of love
Runs in strange directions. 
One who jumps into it drowns, 
And one who drowns, gets across.” 
― Amir Khusrau,

“The eye through which I see God

is the same eye

through which God sees me;

my eye

and God's eye

are one eye,

one seeing, one knowing, one love.” 
 Meister Eckhart,

 

 

 

will soothe you and heal you,
I will bring you roses.
I too have been covered with thorns.” 
 Rumi

Rumi

 

 

 

“Religion is nothing but institutionalized mysticism.

The catch is,

mysticism does not lend itself to institutionalization.

The moment we attempt to organize mysticism,

we destroy its essence.

Religion, then,

is mysticism

in which the mystical has been killed.

Or, at least diminished.”

Just as a candle cannot burn without fire,

men cannot live without a spiritual life.

Buddha

 

 

As we advance in life

it becomes more and more difficult,

but in fighting the difficulties

the inmost strength of the heart is developed.     

Vincent Van Gogh

 

 

How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours. 

 

 

 

Karma comes after everyone eventually.

You can't get away with screwing people over your whole life,

I don't care who you are.

What goes around comes around.

That's how it works.

Sooner or later

the universe will serve you

the revenge that you deserve.

Jessica Brody

 

 

Don't waste time on revenge.

The people who hurt you

will eventually face their own karma.

You are free to choose,

but you are not free

from the consequence of your choice.

Author Unknown

 

 

Whatever you give to life, it gives you back.

Do not hate or harm anybody.

The hatred and wickedness

which comes out from you

will someday come back to you.

Love others.

And love will comeback to you.

Author Unknown

 

Every action has equal and opposite reaction.

This is law of the universe and spares none.

Wrong done and injustice inflicted

is paid back in the same coin.

No one has escaped justice of the universe.

It is only a matter of time.

STAYING POSITIVE does not mean that things will turn out okay. Rather it is knowing that YOU will be okay no matter how things turn out.

No matter what you're going through, there's a light at the end of the tunnel and it may seem hard to get to it but you can do it and just keep working towards it and you'll find the positive side of things.

Demi Lovato

 

 

An attitude of positive expectation is the mark of the superior personality.

When it rains, it pours? but soon, the sun shines again. Stay positive. Better days are on their way.

    • Hopefully he does his brother's efforts justice, and doesn't try to reshape and re-assess Bhai Jagraj Singh's beliefs and legacy to promote the Globalist neo-Communist doctrine of which he's a passionate adherent. Hey, what am I saying, this is Sunny Hundal and the BBC, they can't not follow the narrative. And I'm beginning to suspect Hundal has latched onto his brother's untimely passing as currency to advance his own career and ideals. If that's actually true, then he's a terrible human being.
    • Journalist Sunny Hundal explores the legacy of his late brother Jagraj Singh, the most popular Sikh leader of modern Britain, who sparked an unprecedented revival of young people returning to the faith. https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/proginfo/2020/04/young-sikh-and-proud?fbclid=IwAR18ZCUZ-iOhZxgizy10iNCqAEtQol3rXL5x-bEAH3BfqPnNq8bgx-5iMps
    • If people of other religions, live their lives by following the principles of good moral behaviour, then these people will receive a good quality of life, in the next life. If a person wants to get in to Sachkhand, then they have to adhere to 10th Patshahi’s Sikhi, there’s no other route. Every era has their own maryada and rules. The maryada of this era, is that of Gursikhi, as prescribed by 10th Patshahi. Some people may ask, what about people before 10th Patshahi came to earth? 10th Patshahi’s maryada was always required. Look at the facts! Kesh were kept intact, by everyone, until a Demon minded king forced the kesh cutting of Brahmins, in order to rid them of their spiritual strength. Physical relations before marriage, or extra marital relations are forbidden in all scriptures. Tobacco is considered evil, even in ancient Sanskrit scriptures. Alcohol consumption and intoxicants are also forbidden in ancient scriptures. The killing of and consumption of animal flesh is also a punishable act in the court of the Dharam Raj. So, any deviance from the maryada will result in suffering. Any adherence to the maryada will result in sukh. The bottom line... If you want to get in to Sachkhand, Khandey di pauhal, and strict adherence to code of conduct is a complete necessity. Whether you take Amrit in this life, or the next life or lives, is up to you...
    • THEY BURN IN HELL!!!! THEY'RE BEATEN BY DEMONS!  Nah, I'm kidding. It's a good question. I myself have wondered how the "system" for organising and processing these issues in the afterlife is designed. It would suggest, based on what happens here on Earth, that the followers of all but one faith will be disappointed, to say the least, when they're confronted by the objective parameters of the reality of in the Great Beyond. My theory, based on years of unhinged daydreams, is that every soul needs to incarnate into every belief system before "moving on" and completing a particular cycle of rebirth. If you're spiritually attuned, it's quite obvious to spot the people in their present lifetimes who previously belonged to a particular religion, or held certain beliefs, in a previous lifetime, because they carry over much of the baggage, attitude, and demeanour of their previous selves, which they just haven't been able to shed in their latest incarnation. So, what happens is they transpose that innate manner of being they've accumulated over many lifetimes, and it's continued in their present. There's no conscious desire to progress on a higher level. Now, you could argue the material world makes it impossible to keep these lofty thoughts at the forefront of our minds; that navigating life is difficult enough without the individual going to the lengths of conducting a parallel spiritual meta-narrative alongside their daily corporeal narrative, that is seemingly difficult to prove in an objective sense, and therefore increasingly viewed as non-existent and foolish in this age of spiritual decadence. Contrary to what's taught by preachers, transcending religion and becoming one with the Creator is not an overnight or one-lifetime feat for the vast majority. You have to earn it through arduous, countless lifetimes, and I feel in this respect many Sikhs will be immensely disheartened when they come to realise this in their own situations.  But, yeah, keep following and listening to the corrupt God-men, lol. They've got your back... 😁
