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.

    • yeah Sunny would LURVE for sikhi to become sikhISM  another abombination of the neoliberal mould
    • If you are sitting in the centre of hell , everywhere else looks like heaven . The as the examples biggest failure of those who achieved rights in the developed world they stopped at their countries borders and failed to address oppression of women across the globe for being who they are and their natural processes.   the point is just as men had to call out their own sex for oppressing females the opposite has to happen now females in privileged countries have to stop the oppression of men by vicious neoliberal banshees . Freedom for both is the responsibility of both - no one side can slack on the monitoring and curbing of excesses and liberty taking  .  Yes I've seen really ridiculous guys taking up both sides of their seat on the tube and it IS a nonsense to claim THAT is necessary but I also have my lads worried that even holding their legs loosely parallel would be considering spreading  and THAT is the other side of the nonsense coin . Be comfortable fine but don't inconvenience others unnecessarily  like the first guy .  Yes I don't think I should be paid more than my male colleagues unless I actually AM doing more quality work than them in the same time scale, but I would feel the same about my female colleagues, if they are lazy and don't produce why should I be lumped with them when pay raises are being discussed and denied ? it is all grey areas .  
    • Okay. I didn't read the whole thread. In the words of the black comedian Eddie Griffin (paraphrase). With black churches the priests will <banned word filter activated> your wife, with white ones, they'll <banned word filter activated> your kids.
    • Late for us because our lifespans are limited, and every passing day brings us closer to the end of our lives. But there's still time. Not much but we have our fate in our hands. Whether we squander those opportunities is yet to be seen. Console yourself with the idea that those who are blessed, regardless of their current external saroop, will find the path and adjust their own frame of mind, understanding, and beliefs to faithfully accommodate the knowledge they've been seeking. Alternatively, those with no interest in transforming their being, and are instead looking for someone to endorse, justify, and perpetuate their current lifestyles will waste this precious lifetime on such silliness. It may seem like a soul lost to deception, but the soul itself must desire change. 
    • Where have I vilified black people on this topic? Your buddy GurjantGnostic took offence that black churches have pastors.  He found it racist that I pointed it out. And that the black community have a problem with dodgy pastors. It isn't even a critique, it is just a statement of fact. If it is pointed that cousin marriages are common with Muslims ,does that make one Islamiphobic? Is that vilification?  Besides, what the heck has street crime got to do with pastors? They are completely different.
