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

    • This is because of cognitive dissonance.  A lot of the females in our cultural background do not hold the males of our cultural background with any value. This is because of partly the "fempowerment" movement and also because they have the image of the "Asian babe" for the last couple of decades, it has given a lot of these females an inflated sense of entitlement and  inflated egos. Because you were seen with a female of a different race and cultural background it creates dread in these females from our cultural background.  When you are seen with a female,  it creates 2 things with other females: 1. Pre-selection  2. Social Proof. It means that you have higher value and are attractive to a non Punjabi non Sikh women and this creates confusion to them because you being a Punjabi Sikh male is supposed to mean that you are an ugly hairy pervert. 
    • You should see their faces though when your out and about with a female from a different background.  When I go out with one of me jamaican female friends  you should see the look on the faces of the punjabi females. My friend even noticed and she said she feels uncomfortable because all the stares.   I personally don't care  
    • Why are you jealous? If women want to show their flesh . Why cant they? They are beautiful. If you have got it flaunt it. Sounds like sour grapes
    • It’s more than parents. Upbringing can guide you only so far. The world and the company you keep have a far more powerful effect.  I once joined a Sikh society at university. It was intended to be positive - there was a good attendance for some stuff like talks on Sikhi, attending programs at Gurdwaras etc. But there was also focus on “socialising”, something which i didn’t bother with. Turns out that some apne were using it as a way to meet new guys and girls to develop sexual relationships.  Sikh Societies should be run similarly to Gurdwaras and held to similar standards - involvement of Gursikh role models, Gursikh behaviour etc. Those running the societies who are later found to be involved in shameful acts (be it drinking, smoking, drugs etc), should be removed from their posts. I still feel sad that so many apne are so far removed from Sikhi that they wouldn’t be able to name the 10 forms of the Guru, the Panj Pyare, or Char Sahibzadee. Nor would they be able to recite Mool mantar. With so much modern technology, it should be easier to spread the message of Sikhi. 
    • People can show their t1ts and c0cks off as much as they want but when it comes to representing sikhs or at the gurdwara then no they should not be allowed   and something needs to be done because it's getting out of hand.  You really think female sikh shaheeds and sikh females of the past would appreciate the way their name is getting dragged in the gutter by these "sikh" women of today.
