People in dead end jobs (political correctness being "Level entry" jobs), how can u give your work a meaningful method?? By doing at least a few baanias BUT IN YOUR MIND! Everyday. Could be 4 Japji Sahibs spread out throughout the day or 8 Jaap Sahibs as just examples. 

Of course if anyone comes up to u n start talking DO talk back to them. Pause your recitation, then commence from the tukht u were at. 

Now, I mentioned dead end jobs; machine operators, overlockers, pressers, but semi-skills jobs too! Chef, cook, warehouse workers, soldering workers maybe even drivers too. Driving can b quite hard t focus unless u do recitation a bit loud. ANYWAYS as for the rest? The mind is continuously thinking. So if it must think why not think of God now n then? 

Of course the usual excuses get in the way "No I must not as doing paat NOW is wrong as my mind isn't focused," "No maybe somebody will call me then I'll forget where I was" "No I'll wait until I get home..." LOL but the truth? Mind is "I wonder why God put me in that family, all other families are WAY cooler, when willI get another job/ promotion?? Is it 4pm yet? When will 4 come? Wha happened 3 hours ago? That colleague's a noob! Wait until I tell that cool colleague... OH! Mind's already telling him!" THESE THOUGHTS attack us and we go through the same process, day in, day out... Now, should I start a Japji Sahib? NO NO NO! Too many noises!and the mind is off again on the so called filaana dhingraa. THIS is process of the mind... 

Just select a few baanias and do them in your mind. My preferred is Japji Sahib. I start 2 after 10.15am, then another 2 just before 1pm and 1 after tea break. Might even throw one or two Jaap Sahib through the day... Maybe u prefer other baanias. GO FOR IT! 

What I noticed, the day definitely seems meaningful and at peace to an extent. Surprisingly mind is doing Japji Sahib whilst translations take place automatic ally... Another part of the mind is lost STILL on that Filaana Dhingraa LOL. But the day goes by in peace and it's like a meaningful thing has taken place at work. 

I can imagine not all work allows u to be like that, call centres, teachers, Office work (read documents, stare at screen) etc. Basically job where nothing but interaction and reading/ signing takes place. It can be difficult to truly focus on Filaana Dhingraa let alone Baani. (Filaana Dhingraa just means lots on mind, etc etc). But dead end jobs? Kapria t teh laun walia at Primark?? Wha excuse u got? Your job involves eyes closed, teh launia, look at all that Filaana Dhingraa going on in you mind, bruv. 10 hours! And not 10 mins on one baani!?? 

And it's not difficult. Do one, start the translation along with it, you will see how kirpaa takes place. Select your preferred baania(s) (different paat, different days maybe) and time you wish to do them then go for it. 

Jee, how is it going?

You're doing good. Only thing I would say is that my understanding is Jap Ji Sahib Ji paath should be done in morning only

What do you think of doing Naam Simran or Mool Mantar when engaged with work, it might be easier to concentrate at work at same time also

Thank you for coming back! 

It's been a few months it's going extraordinarily well. So much kirpa happened lately. 

Waking up Amritvela with ease to do naam jap (with concentration of course), amazing raas, mind and body is in a relax state not a tensed state. Calm, cool and collected just the way the mind should be.

You live in the UK. I find getting up in the mornings much more difficult because it's cold now, how about you ?

    • just got this from the Library ** THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER **A GUIDE TO USING THE SCIENCE OF THE BODY CLOCK TO CREATE THE OPTIMUM PERSONAL ROUTINE: SLEEP BETTER, WORK BETTER, FEEL BETTER.'A superlative guide to some of the most intriguing questions of human existence' - Bill Bryson, author of The Body: A Guide for Occupants'Who knew our body clocks determined so much of our health, happiness, and lifespan?I learned so much' - James Nestor, author of Breath  In the twenty-first century, we increasingly push our daily routines into the night, carrying out work, exercise and our social lives long after dark. But we have forgotten that our bodies are governed by a 24-hour biological clock which guides us towards the best time to sleep, eat and think. In Life Time, Professor Russell Foster shares his life's work, taking us on a fascinating and surprising journey through the science of our body clocks. Using his own studies, as well as insights from an international community of sleep scientists and biologists studying circadian rhythms, he illustrates the surprising effects the time of day can have on our health, including:- how a walk outside at dawn can ensure a better night's sleep- how eating after sundown can affect our weight- the extraordinary effects the time we take our medication can have on our risk of life-threatening conditions, such as strokesIn the modern world, we have neglected an essential part of our biology. But with knowledge of this astonishing science, we can get back into the rhythm, and live healthier, sharper lives. https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/321815/life-time-by-foster-russell/9780241529317   @dallysingh101I saw this also, think you would like it     @GurjantGnostic @jkvlondon @californiasardar1 @Ranjeet01 anyone been reading other books?  
    • "I'm a devout Sikh -- and married to a man." What an absurd statement. I'm glad that Jasvir Singh has a trimmed beard, as it helps make it obvious how inaccurate his claim of being a "devout Sikh" is for people who may not know that same sex marriage is not compatible with a gurmat lifestyle.     The funny thing is, just observing the organization from its online presence, I would have guessed that it was created primarily to help guys like Jasvir Singh and Param Singh (remember how he appeared on a dating game show?) meet women. How wrong I was.
