I've lost any thirst I had

Recommended Posts

Guest singh

Some time ago I was excited to wake up at amritvela and I was determined to get up and not fall asleep during my nitnem, and enjoyed listening to asa di vaar afterwards. Now I don't feel that excitement at all, and rather than going straight for an ishnaan once i wake up, I spend around an hour doing anything else. i've become very lazy with my nitnem, and don't listen to asa di vaar anymore. i;ve totally lost that feeling of joy of waking up for my guruji, and i'm worried it'll never come back

Do naam simran from 12:30am onward for 2.5 hours at least. 

Relax, listen to the ringing sound (anhad naad) and let the samadhi take you. 

Practice the teachings of Gurbani in your daily life, live an honest life, work hard, do good for others.

If you still remember the Anand you used to get, use that as motivation and don't get distracted. Even if you just wake up everyday and just merely recite Bani, carry on. You will get used to it and you will start to enjoy it. I find getting lots of motivation from Katha or Kirtan before you go to bed also helps. I think the main thing is just getting back into the discipline and you will start to enjoy it more too. You can also try getting everything done before you go to bed so that when you wake up, you aren't distracted by anything and you just have to do your nitnem. Use Anand as your motivation and you can also try learning a new Bani so that you concentrating on something.

ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਿਹ

Bhai Sahib,

I've gone through a similar thing and what I can say is that increase your love for Maharaj through Katha. Love is not just feeling. Even if you don't feel anything, still do what Maharaj says. Love is when you put someone else first instead of yourself so even if you don't feel joy right now keep doing your Paath and do an Ardas. Do it everyday and ask Maharaaj for help. You never know this might be a test from Maharaaj to see if you truly are a Sikh and we all believe that you are. So Bhaji keep on going, listen to Katha and the Sakhis of our Gurus and the Shaheeds and hopefully some of the love they had will come into you. :)

When you say Nam simran do you mean waheguru simran or something else please specify . I am into kriya yoga and would like to take it further with gurbani I dont do path but often listen to kirtan and get real ras in that . any suggestions.

    • Well I guess i would have to wait till I get married and see how it is then lol But I dont share feelings with anyone  not even friends or family Its safer to keep feelings and problems to yourself, at least I prefer it that way and deal better with it. There are some things I would have to share though.  Its difficult to open up with people, iv done it a few times and didnt like it very much. To much info out like that   I dont like it. And I dont feel comfortable with that.  Iv only ever once had a deep conversation with a female but that's because she had similar problems at home  so I just opened up as well    it didnt feel that bad  because she could relate. 
    • Women have gotten into the habit of getting everything there own way because they are women. 
    • One of the singhs who was involved in vandalizing the statue didnt get arrested and he had a interview on ktv    he said that hes actually from a muslim punjabi family but took amrit and became a sikh.  Il see if I can find the interview   
    • Its not just men though   women in punjab end up looking like christmas trees when they dress up       its just the culture there   it's very camp and over the top.  I remember my thias wife and her daughter asking me why most my clothes are black or dark blue.  Men there wear every colour of the rainbow. 
    • ^^ Good answer above. Singh ji, you are setting an example for your house and you are laying the foundation for your future generations to come. So, if i am in your place, i will be careful with everything in the category of 1. Kaam 2. Krodh 3. Lobh 4. Moh & 5. Hankar. So, being a Sikh and Amritdhari it is our big religious lawful duty to be different than whatever the trend is going on in our society. We need not to be easily sway'd away from our guru's given path.   We are the chosen one. Remember not everyone out of thousands got up to give head when our Dasam patshah jee asked for the kurbani of giving up everything - materialistic life and enter the lifestyle of khalsa. The life of Pure. Pure from all PANJ CHOR.
