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

    • came across this by accident recently. the altercations sound similar albeit in different circumstances. basically my point is whitey wudnt dare do this wiv blacky cuz theyre scared of em. but they like to think they take on browny i.e. singhs n win. they c em as weak n a soft touch. sadly its true in most cases. too many singhs r no longer men anymore. tht includes the metrosexual flex who r well built like a tank but weak in mind like a woman. its dwn to us to make whitey n blacky fear us as well. we need to be ready to fight bk n defend ourselves. thts how we need to be if we want to ensure or increase our survival in the west or abroad. there was a time wen no one used to think abt messin wiv a singh. we also need to be firm/serious wen needed which is most of the time in reality. not smiley n giggly males. its unmanly n irritating to c. dnt think the family wudve imagined this wud happen to em. n thts the point. we cnt keep thinkin im always gna be safe, its never gna happen to me etc. thts a mistake waitin to happen to any of us. the wife n baby cud easily have been caught n harmed had the singh not taken it upon himself to say something. theres a possibility he realised his limits n knew then n there he was fighting a lost cause. we have to learn from this n make sure our own limits r at a threshold tht will help save us if were ever in the same situation. its been mentioned numerous times before but it needs to be repeated until more folk wake up n listen n make the change themselves.
    • the sikh pa family statement made by his wife who wudve been the only eyewitness to it all makes no mention of any kirpan bein used anywhere during the confrontation. but one uk news outlet is quotin this white supremacist lookin thug as sayin he was stabbed in the shoulder which is wat led to the chokehold. as if tht shud help his case. fact is he saw a brown man n lost control. apparently thai law is only 4-15 yrs for trespass n manslaughter.
    • No mention of his kirpan,  does anyone know if he had it with him?
    • if the article in the news is read you will realise the attacker was a white Norwegian by the surname of Bullman , the Singh fought with this guy who was a trained martial artist whilst he told his wife to pick up the two year old and run. Bullman was intent on attacking her too.
    • This poster is pigg headed.  No where does it say the attacker was white.  But this poor excuse for an human being brings race into this topic because hes a piece of <banned word filter activated>.  No one was blaming this pigg headed poster.  Yet this clown writes "Betty white" in a post and nothing else and on a topic of a Sikh man dying.  What the hell does betty white have to do with this topic.  Go get lost.  Racist punks like you are not welcome here.
