Recommended Posts

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

    • delhi sikhs are idiots they are now asking sirsa to demand Chandni Chowk to shaheedi Chowk , I said to them the only reason people remember Chandi Chowk is through the Mahan Shahadat of gursikhs and Guru Sahib , they are too dense to realise that removing the name is also removing the marker of the history .

      Yea they r a huge threat/nuksaan to kheti .But why do u think god made spears(bhaale/barchche) for.For killing jangli soor (obviously,like duuuuuhhh??) lol. And yea they do attack ppl,are quite fierce actually ,with their tusks and all can really kill a person(spoiler alert:they do) But they shud be tasty af especially with all da charbi so,chatka them singhon .looooooooollll. "they always hog on the kheti maan " (another successful pun by me) 
    • my cousin took by the back of a "modern restaurant"  and massive bulks of meat i think it was sheep and goats were hanging out in the open behind the restaurant with swarms of around flys all over it.  my thia took me to a chicken farm where they are being raised to slaughter and there were 100s all cramped in small places. Most the chickens in cages ready to kill are loosing their feathers and look like they have disease.   men pissing out in the open is also common sight in the urban areas.   luckily none of this has started happening in the pinds yet 
    • i said the same thing they need to round these dogs up and kill them!  they are disgusting and rabbid and iv seen to many shagging in the middle of the streets!       near my dads pind theres a place where they take dead cows/buffalo and skin them and the dogs around there are like fcking hyenas,  that area has now become a no go zone.    people are really scared to these dogs.      At night they run around in packs that are 30/40 strong and howl all night.  i went for a walk with my cousin sister at night with a pet dog   and around 10 dogs started running towards us and barking   luckily the pet dog was bigger and intimidated them,  while this was going on we walked of really fast and got away.   wild hogs/boars are another problem,  the wild pigs actually eat the dogs which is great but they have attacked people too.   I went to my thias fields and we saw pig footprints in the mitti.    
    • This guy says, Gurbani says you will reap what you do.  Gurbani does say this but Gurbani also says on this topic, you will do as Vaheguru commands....nothing is in your hand, Vaheguru does all.  Gurbani also says on this topic, walk on the path of Gurmat.  To understand the concept, you will reap what you sow. The two connected topics also have to be explained without contradicting the first concept. The example he provides does not incorporate all three  concepts and provide a Gurmat answer.  This parrot is the blind man touching the trunk of an elephant and saying it's a tree trunk. The parrot is saying we write our destiny.   But this is not what Gurbani is saying.  Gurbani is saying you will follow the will of Vaheguru command.  How does he explain Sri Guru Arjun Dev ji being punished by the ruler at the time.  When Sri Guru Arjun Dev ji did nothing wrong? According to,  you will reap what you sow, the 40 mukta were punished on the battlefield because they went to do a good thing and fight evil, but they lost their lives.   Losing your life is a negative outcome and not a positive outcome. The 40 mukta studied for the test and they failed because they lost their lives. Also this parrot is changing the language around the 40 mukta by saying 40 singhs. He doesn't  want to say mukta because that would mean their is an after life and these clowns don't believe in an afterlife.  The chota sahibzaade also lost their lives for doing a good deed.  How come the good people doing good deeds are losing their lives (failing the test) and people doing bad things are not losing their lives?  Clearly the concept you will reap what you sow is not so simple in Gurbani.  Also before clown college says passing the test means the 40 mukta and chota sahibzaade stood up to tyrants.   This would be the wrong analogy because passing the test is the end result (living, but the 40 mukta and chota sahibzaade didn't live on) and answering the question right is to stand up to the tyrants.
