What do you do when losing faith ?

Recommended Posts

WJKK WJKF

What do you guys do when you feel like you are losing faith in prayer, god etc 

Do you have phases where you just feel empty and so far

I start to remember Mahapurakhs and start remembering what they did, the Kautaks that occured during their life and how imbued they were with the love of Vaheguru. Since there are hundreds and thousands of them I know with certainty Gursikhi is the right path, so don't worry about it. Pick up a book like Se Kinehiya, autobiography of Bhai Sahib Bhai Randhir Singh etc. and read it.

To be honest feel like that often, you just find yourself coming back to the truth, its difficult,  but dont give up.

Just start to try and learn/understand what Guru Granth Sahib Ji is saying.

Yeah it feels like whenever bad thoughts come and you feel distant, Guru Sahib just comes back to collect you like when a child runs away from his parents for a while.

I'm going to read more bani. feel no relationship at all, just empty 

Im not going to do anything stupid, but i struggle to look at myself in the mirror, i looked at myself and thought why am i even keeping my kesh and dhari, im not gnna do anything stupid. But iv fallen real low if that thought came to my head.    Thats how distant 

Must be looking at me and thinking how ungrateful i am 

gnna read more bani as reading bani is having a conversation with guru ji. and do proper simran.

I would start with an Ardas from the heart - e.g. Guru ji, I've failed, please help me out of the darkness - and take a hukamnama (online if you want). Remember the Mahapurakhs, their Jeevan, the miracles. Remember the price that Bhai Taru Singh was ready to give for his Kesh. To be scalped alive and bleed for over 20 days while still reading Japji Sahib and in Anand. Why did he go and do that instead of living a worldly life? Puzzled Bhaji, it's because Guru Sahib is the full truth.

These 2 videos will help, quite inspirational.

Yes. Its sort of normal. Theres even a name for it. Post Amrit High. As soon as u learn about sikhi or take amrit, u r on a high. Have lots of motivation and desire to do bhagti. But then it fades. Its like u get the spiritual benefits of sangats kamaii and it fadea if we dont keep it up. 

But the important thing is to do simran and read gurbani when you don feel like it. Thats when u really grow. Also, read gurbani with meanings.

yeah iv been trying to do that the last few days, been reading lots of bani and doing simran,   im getting back on track again  

At the gurdwara the Singh doing the katha was saying that even when you dont feel like it do lots of simran, he said even when your going through struggles and your mind starts thinking about your problems still do more simran, that motivated me a lot. I think wahaguru ji called me to the gurdwara that day to hear that and get motivated 

thanks

    • YES! valid points. Life is a thing which can pull people into good / bad stuff. Religion, friends, fam and society can be factors. I too went down a "Make a quick buck" routine a few years back as I considered myself in a "Hard" life. Of course no one was hurt, injured or robbed in the process.
    • Iv listened to it before  I think it's real     he starts reciting the Quran as well 
    • @mods I'm not sure if this violates the forum rules. Please feel free to remove/alter if required. This is not a promotional post and I'm not affiliated with stack exchange. I've just submitted a proposal to them. Satsriakal people! I've created a proposal at stack exchange( the largest question/answer website on the web, similar to quora) to start a sub site devoted to Sikhism where people can post questions and receive answers from others. I request everyone to please follow the site to keep it active so that it can be pushed to the next stage(beta)and isn't deleted.
      Please click "follow" at the below link: https://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/122932/sikhism Once the number of followers meet the minimum criteria, there will be a sub section on stack exchange devoted only to Sikhism, which I think will be a great thing. Let's give our best to make this proposal count. Since this is a new proposal, it also lacks sample questions. Please feel free to upvote the existing questions or add new ones related to Sikhism.
    • shes from a different community n anotha part of town. abt 15 yrs younger than the female elder as well. so y wud she be keepin their company? seems like she was either abandoned by her own for wateva reason n lost her way. maybe livin rough n desperate before bein targeted. or she knew the place well as a worker or regular customer n wanted a piece of the prize from wat wudve seemed a simple 'transaction'?
    • Sidh Gohst is a Sikh Prayer... (i hope u weren't being sarcastic)? Prayer came about when Guru Nanak Ji had an assembly (gohst) with Sidhs, hence the name Sidh Gohst. The prayer is like a Q&A session where Sidhs ask n Guru Ji answers... NOW! Who been telling me to stick t learning about Sidh Gohst?? 😔
