Laziness is killing me

Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh!

Sangat ji i need some help. I don't wake up at Amrit Vela even though I'm at home these days. I started with Japji Sahib and then built up to include Jaap Sahib in my morning nitnem. But once I wake up late, I keep procrastinating my morning nitnem through the day, and end up not even doing Rehras Sahib! Idk I'm just really lazy😣. Does it mean I don't love Guru Maharaj enough? Can I do something about it? After a good few months my graph is going down. I am clueless. Why is it happening so? And what should I do?

Thanking you in anticipation for the support that you always extend.

Waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fathe!

You used to part-take in amrit vela and do full nitnem before, which is great. I guess you are now in battle with maya.

See, you are not at the start of your spiritual journey anymore. You already made the start (probably in a past life), the ‘down’ feeling is you’ve reached a hurdle/test. Before significant spiritual advances, there will be tests. It can take years to even realise you are just being tested. Guru Gobind Singh Ji loves you as much as he does his 4 sahibzade. Yes, you really are that special!

God’s path has many tests, one of them is maya. Right now maya is giving you a false sense of security in your beautiful and comfortable home. It’s goal is to stop you progressing further in sikhi and becoming one with your guru.

Try to get bairaag back into your mind by reading or listening to bani of 9th guru. As for amrit vela just push yourself, get up early do the path. 

If laziness is an issue it almost certainly suggests you have the time available in your life right now. So try to do as much bhagati as possible. It can be anything: waheguru jaap, mool mantar, japji sahib, sukhmani sajib, a particular shabad etc. It can even just be seva at your local gurdwara. Whatever you feel comfortable doing. Try to use the time available to move closer to god

Quote from Sant Isher Singh ji rara wala: first when you start bhagati you don’t experience anything, you feel like you are wasting your time. Eventually you start to experience the bliss, and nothing on this planet can compare to it!

God bless you

If u wake up late. It makes ur whole day late.

So have 2 fail proof plans. Get up at Amritvela. Cuz u know if u dont u wont fo ur nitnem. So if u fail to do ur nitnem, ur punishment is u HAVE to wake up at amrit vela the next day. You HAVE TO.  its the least u can do. 

But if u do amrit vela and nitnem and then start waking up late. Then habe a time like at 11 am i have to go to Japji sahib. No matter what.

In addition to the advice in the above posts, just make sure that you complete your Nitnem,  even if you miss Amritvela. Don't think that you have missed Amritvela, so there is no point in reciting Gurbani then. This is another trick of Maya. But make sure that the morning Nitnem Gurbanis are completed before sunset.

If you miss Amritvela, then go to Gurughar and do Nitnem. When you are in the presence of Sri Satguru jee and are reciting Gurbani with love/concentration, that time is also Amritvela.

Listen to katha and do sangat for motivation. There is a lot of pain and suffering in the world. Think about that when you feel low. It might motivate you to do more Naam Simran.

Please listen to the following videos. They might also motivate you.

You only need to read these Bani's once or twice and acept and apply the teachings to your life. 

 

Apply the teachings in your daily life (truthful living). But do your name jaap meditation daily, 12:30am is the best time to start it (experience it for yourself) . Do it for 2.5 hours. Relax and let the samadhi take you. 

 

If you feel like you're lazy and lack willpower, naan jaap and applying gyan should help and exercise is also very important and should push you harder and motivate you. Be positive and try it.

    • I think Indians fought in these wars simply for the money, I really dont think they cared about the cause   let's be realistic here!  Same with all the people from other colonised countries that fought in the war.  More muslims fought in these wars than Sikhs even though its strictly against their religion to fight for non muslims or for a non muslim cause.   They simply did it for the money.  If anything it opened doors for people to move to the uk
    • He's got called out on this in a major way in the past few days even by the kind of people he was trying to appeal to. He's issued a kind-of apology to Sikhs for his ignorance pertaining to this part of history.
    • Work to set up first Sikh varsity outside India on in US city Updated: Jan 25, 2020 22:02 IST By Surjit Singh , Hindustan Times, Amritsar A group of NRIs donated 125 acre land to set up the university, work on which started in August last year A group of NRIs have donated nearly 125 acres of land for setting up ‘Khalsa University’ in Bellingham city of the United States, which will be the first Sikh varsity outside India, and are working on the project to start the proposed courses in a year or so. Bellingham is a coastal city in Washington state near the Canada border. US-based Manjit Singh Dhaliwal, who along with other US-based Sikh families donated the land for the purpose, said, “The work was initiated in August last year. The project has got shape with the grace of Waheguru.” Dhaliwal, who hails from Chowkiman village in Ludhiana district and was felicitated by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) in Amritsar for his contribution to Sikhism through the upcoming varsity, said, ““We have purchased two buildings of a government college with the help of members of the community to run the courses. We have got licenses by the education board and the local government,” he said. “We have got online courses approved by the government and they will be introduced in the building we have purchased. We will approach Sikhs across the world to seek cooperation to develop the campus. Though we are short of funds, I hope the sangat will help us realising our dream and in a year we will be able to start all the proposed courses”, said Dhaliwal who owns gas stations in Bellingham, which is adjacent to Canadian city of Vancouver. “The university will offer courses in engineering, medical, law, languages, accountancy etc besides gurbani research, Sikh history and gurmat sangeet. Local people of other faiths are happy because value-based education is the need of the hour at a time when youths are getting hooked to drugs and other things,” he added. Accompanying him, Prof Gurnam Singh, former head of Gurmat Sangeet department of Punjabi University, Patiala, who is involved in the project, told that the project is on its initial stage and few classes have started in the building which is temporary campus. SGPC senior vice president Rajinder Singh Mehta presented him a ‘siropa’ (robe of honour), a replica of the Golden Temple and memorial coins and religious books. SGPC-run Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University, Fatehgarh Sahib, is considered as the sole Sikh university. https://m.hindustantimes.com/cities/work-to-set-up-first-sikh-varsity-outside-india-on-in-us-city/story-J0TL6vQz6h2twluxzmPkGN.html
