Detached

Recommended Posts

Guest Gurpreet

Satshriakal Sareya nu,

 

It's been 8 years I took amrit and I firmly believe in sikhism but from last couple of months I am feeling detached to religion.

I am facing this change gradually but I would like to share that I am becoming wise and my faith in GOD (Akal Purakh) is increasing.

I am feeling like there is no need to follow a certain way to please waheguru. The only way to please him is having trust and faith in him.

I am a mature in 30s lady and have moved to Australia 3 years back and I think I am changing due to influence of this country. I believe in  being happy and stress free rather than to be continuously under an impression of fear from God. 

I started believing more in Karma and faith in Waheguru is enough and there is no need to follow a certain way to maintain it like being amritdhari and reciting bani.

Waheguru has given me more than what I deserve but I never ever in my life felt so much detached from my panth. 

And the biggest issue is that first time in my life my mind is relax, I am at peace and I am happy now. 

This is something different coz i should feel bad but I am happy. 

Guru Nanak Dev ji says that you can only Naam Jap when waheguru wants you to. I am afraid as my thoughts will spoil me. 

 

Please if any one could help me to how to fix myself. I am certainly broken.

You didn’t mention anything about sangat. What’s this been like since taking amrit or feeling this way?

Maybe lack of sadh sangat has got you feeling broken

Pen Jee, 

no need to feel broken, you are very much to the Truth of Gurmat. 

Only that much I will add, apart from having faith and trust in Him, which is the same thing, but do that thing which really pleases Him, as you have stated in your last line of your post, do the jaap of His Nam, for in His court only that much shall be valued.

If you are at peace, your mind is relaxed and are happy. Well, that doesnt sound broken. You are old enough to know right from wrong and after 8 years amrit you already know about what sikhi says; reading  gurbani, keep sangat, doing seva and simran. 

No one here is going to force you to follow a way. It really is a choice,  you know how karam works so make you own decisions.

Its your life, you are the only person who decides when to change it and if you want. Where mental health is involed, engage with your doctor or message a mental health helpline.

I definitely agree. I've been through similar periods, where I've either not been reading enough Baani, or not really listening to katha or having little or no sangat. But as soon as I increase these again, my faith and peace and balance are restored. 🙏🏾

Good stuff. Gurbani speaks of Sehaj, being at peace and relaxing. There’s no need to fear God. There is so much negativity in the world that the bhagat reacts in positivity. Being a positive person is key to walking on the path. The Gurus reacted this way to most events in their lives. Relax and be at peace, life is temporary so enjoy it while you can and be a good soul.

    • There are so many questions regarding Sikh Maryada, but don’t know who to ask. It’s very difficult living abroad and no one to approach when you want to ask something. I have seen contact numbers at the end of some videos of very well known kathavachaks and kirtaniyes in the past but never bothered to note them down anywhere. It is difficult. Do you find everyone has their own interpretations regarding Sikhi questions when asked, which leads to nothing but confusion? 
    • I'm interested to know why they do havan too? People have been using fire in worship for 1000s of years, Native Americans, Zoroastrians, Pagans, Vedic traditions.  Wouldn't be surprised if the cave people, who used to light fires with stones, whatever their beliefs were probably used fire too.   As the only Singh in my family i get parents, uncles/aunts, cousins, neighbors asking me these of questions all the time! how the hell am i supposed to know! it's as if i all a sudden became an encyclopedia on Sikhi and have the answers for everything. A lady family friend came around once and asked me why people use instruments in Nagar kirtans?  "i don't know"   why do Sikhs in India do prabhat pheri? "i don't know"   one i get asked often is why nihungs cut goats heads off "i don't know". My cousin came around yesterday and asked me "oh why did that nihung cut the police mans hand off"   "i don't know" ! The worst is when some Singh does something stupid and theres a video being passed around, they all send me the video or ask me about it as if i have an answer or explanation for the stupidity, its as if your being held responsible for it!    Even the ancient North Indian festival of Lohri has a fire in the center of it. I read how in the Vedic period they used to do fire sacrifices with horses! how barbaric is that!   
    • I think you’d be better off asking Giani Thakur Singh Ji @Khaaik at the end of his youtube video on this bani. I have seen their contact number in many older videos but can’t remember exactly which ones though.
    • Do you mean the Ascending Masters by any chance?
    • How, where and when did your baba Ji meet Sant Ji? Was he young himself when he first met him?  It would be so nice to know his experiences with Sant Ji.
