Contentment

Recommended Posts

"Thaal wich thin wastu paeyo; sat, santokh, wichaaro.

There is a great pleasure in keeping santokh . It benefits the mind and body. It keeps one in a relaxed state at all times. Should we indulge in latest tech, food and fashion? YES!

It's not you using them, it's HOW you use them. What goes on in the mind? Perhaps you're in a coffee shop, having latest "best" drink and person next to you has normal Americano. Americano is enjoying every sip! But you?? "I wonder what that frappe tastes like? I regret not getting cream on top..." Truth is cream or no cream you'll wonder what other things, around you, will be like if you had it. And if you have it?? "I wonder if next door's was better!"

The moment your mind runs to "the next best thing" is the first sign of NON contentment. Just like the mind runs on other coffees your own cup goes empty! The same way...

FINALLY! You're a bus driver and your pay is more than your friends! 2 weeks later??? "I take the same route everyday. Only 2 miles circular. Michael does 8 miles. I wanna go for that!" We can all guess what happens on the 8 mile route... "Jenny drives on the motor/ free way. My life is nothing here!" Then as you're on motorway you notice a holiday coach... Just like you eyeing others coffee whilst your own empties, your life goes near retirement and you eye other's career position.

So, should we go for promotions? YES! Again, the thing before you is not a problem. It's YOUR mentality in how you use it. Are you happy on the inside doing 2 miles same route, knowing it pays to keep food on table? Have you taken pride in helping passengers, were you thoughts on that?

In order to practice santokh, sit with the birds and listen to them, 30 minutes a day. Sit in the garden/ park and observe on your 5 senses. Observe the ants, worms and bees. Pay attention to the wind. (Mind you, equally harder task than doing naam jap). I remember my first 15 mins sitting in contemplation. The most difficult thing ever! I started in 2013. Five years later? 3 hours no problem. More entertaining and energising than the internet!

By literally "meditating" in nature, it'll support YOU into finding happiness where ever you are and in whatever position. It'll do your mind, soul, body and hormones excellent. You'll be in peace most of the time. Akaal Purkh's force, nature, will reveal its secrets unto YOU.

This technique needs to be given a shot.

Bhul chuk maaf.

    • Jews have basically invaded Palestine, killed the locals and made it their own country because they believe that it's their divine right because "god" had promised them that land. And this promised land is mentioned nowhere other than in the Jewish bible written by Jews!    What kind of god makes one ethnicity his chosen people and promises them a land just for them?  Jews also see themselves as the governors of the law (10 commandments, torah etc) and also the people that God chose to reveal his laws to.    The whole thing was created to give them special status and for world domination. I even doubt that they were even enslaved by the egyptions, there is absolutely no record of 100,000s of Jews being in Egypt at one time. Made up stories and a made up struggle.  Many Christians actually support Israel as they believe Jesus will return once the Jews are back in Israel, which has already happened.  All they waiting for now is the construction of the 3rd temple.  Even the 2nd coming of Jesus is based around all these Jewish superstitions and their return to Israel. 
    • Bro I believe in 5 pyare there room of Guru Gobind Singh ji my question is there any where Guru Granth Sahib ji saying you need living guru or don’t need living guru I have few radasoami relatives they always quotes few Gurbani pangtiya trying to proof we need living guru they mention jug jug peeri chalay satguru ki   in each age true guru come and they meditate the naam what does jug mean in this pangti I though there are 4 jugs? Har nirmal at ujla bin gur paya nAh jaye ang 66 guru amardas ji telling to find guru?          
    • The rest of us non Jews in the west are not allowed to forget, there are whole museums, TV programs,  movies , news items to remind us. Back in 90s, over 1 million Tutsis were massacred but they have no where near any of the coverage that we receive about the Jewish holocaust.  The Jews in the west are thought in the same manner as the baniya/brahmin is thought of by the general indian public.  The difference between the Jews and Christian/Muslim is that latter two want everyone to follow their creed. The Jews do not do that. However there are elements of their tribe who like to indulge in mischief making.
    • Mir Mannu , Zakaria Khan and Lakhpat rai passed more than 200 yrs ago. They were hitler for us. We still remember the sikhs who suffered in their hands in our Ardas, don't we ? I think Jews should remember that episode on their congregational prayers , not whole of friggin world. So many ppl don't even know who jews are. But then again , I am willing to give the jews the benefit of doubt . They have a pretty cleaner slate than the chrislamo faction 
    • The Jews do seem to lord over everyone in regards to the holocaust.  But how long can this keep going on for. WW2 finished 75 years ago. Any Jew that survived the holocaust would at least be in their 80's.  Once the generation of that era passes on and there would be no one who would have living memory of what happened, I wonder if things will change drastically.  Eventually,  people will start (if not already) get tired and fed up with hearing about it along with being called a Nazi and anti-semitic.
