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. :)

ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਿਹ

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.

    • If u wake up late. It makes ur whole day late. So have 2 fail proof plans. Get up at Amritvela. Cuz u know if u dont u wont fo ur nitnem. So if u fail to do ur nitnem, ur punishment is u HAVE to wake up at amrit vela the next day. You HAVE TO.  its the least u can do.  But if u do amrit vela and nitnem and then start waking up late. Then habe a time like at 11 am i have to go to Japji sahib. No matter what.  
    • Also new finding was the muslims in Saudi Arabi that turned sikh. Their writings were recently found. Bahi pinderpal singh talks about them in his katha. Google it. A muslim who had turned sikh during guru nanaks time was buried alive or stoned to death. Sorry forgot the name
    • Panjabis. Or girls from sikh families where the grandparents are amritdhari but their kids and grandkids are not.  You can also marry amridhari girls. If you promise to take amrit soon. 
    • Yes. Science and the west are catching up to the East and sikhi. They have adopted yoga and in the process of taking over meditation too. And they have really learnt that the mind controls the universe and resukts not just hard work. So they are preaching the Law of Attraction etc. Lots of ppl have been interested in the east and eastern spirituality from the 1700s. So the west have learnt and are teaching it back to us.  I have noticed this too and gives me the same reaction like we have the best religion, we dont need to learn from them. But God helps us learn thru life thru other people. Our scriptures are lessons, our sakhis examples, our sants/shaheeds role models. And life is our test, it helps us memorize and really understand thise lessons. So sometimes we will learn things better from outsiders. And thats ok. Just because we have the best religion doesnt mean we r the best students. Sometimes we dont pay attention in class, so God has to teach us outside the classroom, throw a pop quiz, have an outsider explain to us. Also we have lost alot. Like our artistry such as calligraphy, music, knowledge of vaidgiri/health etc. And some of it the gore know like yoga etc. 
    • because to reveal and nuture the truth in the age of kalyug it needed hammering home -this is a spiritual revolution not just a social and political one , to change the world's future you have to build a solid foundation. There were not so many , there was only ONE ever
