Do ardaas to guruji and ask for forgiveness.

Every person has to decide how much they will listen to guruji when worldly it hurts them. 

Its a majboori. Try to make a decision that once i have reached this amt of money, or paid this much mortgage, i will stop doing this.

Its just a job your doing to provide for your family and earn a living.

i dont think it affects your rehat. Consuming etc is a separate matter

I mean Bhagat Sadhana Ji, sorry!  He was a butcher by birth-trade, but became liberated by loving God.

Bhagat Sadhna Ji was a butcher until he realized it was wrong. After he had the Holy Revelation, he stopped being a butcher.

Sorry Bro, I understand your concern. It will not hurt your rehat.  Do Benti to Waheguru, to bless you with other job where you are more comfortable doing it, other wise meanwhile doing your job, keep your Waheguru simran as much as possible at all times.

Veerji i used to drive truck from canada to usa with full loads of pork all the time,  i used to bring beer and wines as well. Yes i am Amritdhari. It depends on how you think and how you understand sikhi.

some of my singh friends avoid meat loads- they have reasons for it

i take meat loads- i have my own reasons. I don’t care if i have trailer full if apples or meat- my job is driving. 

There is no job which is sin free. Do your bhagti as mush as possible and don’t worry about the job

NO! Even Amritdhari shop owners handle wine, beers and nicotine. NOTHING WRONG! Consumption is a different matter.

this doesn't seem correct.  they are selling those things that they think are immoral?  

just because "other people" do something, doesn't make it right.

the point with OP is that due to his financial situation (mortgage) AND the nature of his job, he doesn't have a choice.  that's is why we are sympathetic to his situation.

that is not the same as some 'amritdhari' deliberately selling this stuff to make money!  shame on them!

you're bhagti is not separate from your job.  think of Bhai Lalo.

saying "my job is driving" seems a bit ignorant.  it is like some nazi saying "my job is just driving",

you basically sold out your ethics for $

Job is Naam Simran. Whether there is meat in the trailer has no bearing.

EXCELLENT POINT! They can do without selling items!

What? No, that is not true. Where did you get that?

We're not supposed to encourage people to consume harmful things because that increases our negative karma. Simple as that.

Yours seems to be the only balanced answer here.

It's one thing to say carrying a meat load is mazboori, as you have.

It's quite another, like some other posters said, that there's no problem whatsoever carrying a meat load.

    • One thing I cant stand the thought of is a interfering mother in law.  If she's constantly invading my space and interfering    I'd tell her where to go    lol 
    • Bani clearly says in kalyug  which is the era where everything goes wrong that women will take lead,  this is just one of the characteristics on kalyug ,  men will become puppets. A man's downfall is when he becomes a slaves to his senses     that's when a man becomes weak   he loses his dharma.  Men should also keep secrets to themselves    sharing feelings and what's deep inside is also what weakens a man.    Media which is ran by feminists, gays and liberals have completely brainwashed men.  Every man should try to become the best man he can become       fck what media is saying     
    • Just last week down my road a Pakistani woman kicked her husband out of the house because she wanted him to put their sons name on his bank account. She herself doesnt work. The husband refused  and she kicked him out and said she ain't gonna let him back in till he agrees. His son then hit him on the face.   Growing up I always thought women were victims and men were the big bad ones   but now I'm older iv realized men and women are just bad as each other.  Men get angry quick and start abusing and hitting, while women are bad in a more sly plotting way.    
    • They already have started destroying the traditional family unit    just look at the UK.  Feminism is a good example of why women shouldn't take lead.  The sexual revolution movement in 60s in the west was led by women/feminists and since then there has been no looking back! It's just getting worse and worse     they started it.    Men can't even talk back at women or argue back in public because they will be called sexist     thats right where feminists want men to be      Women also do a lot of stirring in punjabi families    it's no secret   brothers fall out with each other all the time because their wives keep filling their ears.   Funny how brothers get on really well before marriage but then after marriage it all changes.  its all stated in kalki avatar and dasam bani     it's all coming true.   
    • One of the goals of feminism is to break up the family. The family is the glue that holds society together. Once you destroy that then society begins to unravel.
