  2. Nobody is free from vices for it is something in our minds which we have within ourselves, and we can not get rid of them, as long as we are in the realms of mind and maya. These thieves usually rob us, without any notifications. And I myeself, I am a champion full of vices, so I know how much one suffers under their undesired effects. My only intention by posting in this thread, is because as said I have been under their bad effects, so I do not want others to go through it, and by His grace, I have understood and realized that, it is only by engaging in His bhakti, one can be on the safe side. It is not even by not wanting these vices, or in lesser amount, that one can rid oneself from them, for they are planted within our very minds, and the job of the mind is to keep us enslaved here in this mayavee creation Moderation to control vices, is not like having a TV remote control, to lower to higher the volume. For this is something from within. Who knows when will be our last breath? And in His court not even as little of a penny can go with us of these vices if we have it, so what to say about having a hundred pound note of them. The question is not of having little or much, for it is something out of our control as seen above. The question is of having, or not having, for some drops of poison, if not the full bottle, yet it is poison, and it will surely be harmful. On the other side if we sincerely do His bhakti, with His grace, one will overcome them, though unconscioussly, and being imbued with His virtues which means being alert and strong, or having His Light brighter and brighter within us, these demons will not even come near us. Al that, once again is not by our efforts, but by His apaar kirpa, when we do His bhakti lovingly focused on Him, just as baby child to his/her mother, which keeps us safe from all dangers That much only.. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
  3. Very much interesting questions above LiquidSky Jee, Motivation does not need necessarily to be emotional. Emotions, reactions are in the mind, not in the soul. Good karmas are necessary for our spiritual progress by drawing grace from Him. So good karmas are necessary that much to bring us closer to Him, they are like walking on a road with Light, where you know which direction to take towards your goal, on the contrary, if one incurrs in bad karmas, due to mtions or vices, one turna away one´s facefrom the light and falls into the well of darkness. But then having the chance to walk and reach destination with Light, why turn our faces from it and fall into darkness due to ignorance of the mind and all that emerges from it? Maybe there is a confusion of what the mind is, which is limited and really not our real self. We are so much related to the frame of our body in which the mind works with all its vikars blindly , that we take it be our real self. The teachings in all rligious scriptures refer to our soul as our real self which is eternal, not the mind nor the body, which are perishable. If we do not first realize our true self as soul, clouded by the mind, how can we ever realize the universal Parmatma? There is no such tool, device or technology created by the human mind, through which we can know our self nor the ultimate Self, Parmatma. We do not acknowlege our mother or father, by our emotions, isn´t it? But by direct perception and association with them. in a similar way, Guru Sahiban tell us, He Waheguru is Light(Jot), Light is not perceived by emotions again, nor there is any need for them, and in order to perceive that Light, we have to just be receptive and open our eyes, only that much. Bhakti/Love/Prem/Devotion is the need for the soul as an vehicle, to realize and reach Waheguru, which is a transcendetal changeless and eternal reality beyond any emotions, for as said, emotions exist in the mind, and we have to eliminate or cross the limits of the mind(braham) in order to reach our goal Waheguru (Parbraham). Bhakti is to surrender oneself, or better said, become mindless. Emtions and thoughts arise from the mind and at most can take you only up to mental subtle spheres, but it is His Love as a blessing in the form of Bhakti which takes the atma or self to Parmatma, and that too, not remain as an individual there, but merge and become one with Him as He Himself, as Nam or Shabad, for in Sach Khand only Nirankar exists. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
  4. LiquidSky Jee, the 5 vices are all responsible for keeping us prisoners in this mayavee creation, for they make us incurr in bad karma always. They are subtle diseases, or invisble theives. They poison our minds, weaken our will power, and as said, under their influence, only bad karmas happen. You say krodh can drive us to seek justice, but sorry to say, that is not justice, that is called revenge. Justice is delivered by a judge, but have we ever seen a judge in anger? Justice can only be administered with a cool and clear mind, while anger blinds our chit, then naturally, disasters are for sure to happen. Kaam is not only sex for proreation, Kaam in reality means desire for self gratification, for which many fall or degrade themselves to animal /beast levels. Ahankar, is being arrogant, and arrogant people are usually discriminative, and to maintain their ego or pride, again they need to do bad karam, whether verbally or through action by abusing others. Lobh always wants us have more than others, even snatch what belong to others, and a person under the effects of lobh can go to any extent of cheating. Moh is attachment, and attachment to anything here, is holding on strongly to trash. Moh to properties brings yoou back as a ghost, moh to money will make you come back as snake an so on...the thing is, each of the 5 thieves, pulls us back into the perishable creation in the wheel of 84. These thieves are so powerful that even gods, devis, devtays are not free from them, so what to say about us ordinary human beings. One can surely exist without having to be under their negative influence, and the very image of this real possibility, are our Guru Sahiban, the Bhagat Jan, and the Gurmukhs, who have a mindless nature, thus they are the masters of their will power; mind and the vikars just are helpless against them. Just have a check at their lives when they blessed us with their presence whilst among us. In them, fully shines the Light of Waheguru, so they are an example for all sikhs and all of the humanity, as per how to stay alert and clean in this world, as well in the subtle planes of consciousness. Sharing the following piece of information regarding the topic in this thread which I found on the net: The five evils, lust, wrath, greed, attachment and egoity, flourish on the soil of the belief in one's individualized existence. By destroying the doctrine of one's own existence or the belief in one's individual reality, the sages (sant, sadh) cancel in one stroke, as it were, the entire catalogue of evils. Desire, anger, avarice, infatuation, egoism, passion, jealousy, hypocrisy, pride, deception, falsehood, violence, doubt, and nescience and other forms of depravity listed in the Guru Granth Sahib do not affect they who have overcome themselves and found their essence in God's reality. Liberation (mukti) means the extinction of all the evils headed by haumai. The Sikh canon also points to the way of extinguishing evils of all kinds. It is acknowledged that the five evils afflict all beings in sansar and that it is difficult to control them. Yet the possibility of conquering them is not ruled out in the theological framework of Sikhism; the moral training of a Sikh is in fact directed towards controlling the senses and eradicating the evils. The seeker of liberation has first to liberate themself of the yoke of the pentad, or the 5 vices. No headway can be made towards God-realization without discarding the cardinal evils. Kabir says, "He alone cherishes the Lord's feet who is rid of desire, wrath, greed and attachment" – "kamu krodhu lobhu mohu bibarjit haripadu chinai soi" (GG, 1123). Morover LiquidSky Jee, love for Guru Jee is not moh. Rather is a blessing by which one finds the gate of being liberated for ever and merging in that Supreme Truth, namely Waheguru. One may ask, how to differentiate a vice from a virtue? The vices as stated above, bind us here, while the virtues bring us closer to Waheguru, and among all virtues, bhakti or uncondtional love for Waheguru, is the only thing which frees us forever, and allows us to merge in Him. He, the One who is the embodiment of : Sach (Eternal Truth)- Chit(Omniscience or Supraconsciousness) - and Anand( peace and true permanent Bliss); and believe it, all this possible without mind, which is a barrier or hindrance in our spiritual advancement, with the 5 major vices and other sub-vices. Love for Guru Jee, is the only means for staying strong and pure, and also for our union with Him. That is why, the Bani can not be more clearer when it says: Saach kahoon sun lehoh sabhee Jin prem kiyo, tinhee Prabh paayo. This is the true efficient wisdom about what all spirituality is about, given to us by Guru Sahiban, that also, in just one verse of a few words. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
  5. Start with understanding yourself first: True, your-self, is knowing you are the eternal soul, not the perishable body. Same in essence as the Creator Himself, just as a ray is related to the Sun or a drop to the Ocean. How can you relate to something which is infinite if you havent understood yourself: Agree also, only as said above, when we realize we are atma, can we go for Parmatma. The Five so-called "Vices" in Sikhi is your own Emotions, not "Bad Deeds": Here I disagree, vices are not emotions nor moods. Emotions by themselves, do not induce you to do bad deeds, but on the contrary, anyone, absolutely anyone under the influence of these vices or thieves, unmistakenly commit bad deeds or karmas, which take our self farther away from the divinity. On the contrary, virtues, make us do good karmas, which are essential to invoke His grace on us, and through that His apaar grace, we gradually get nearer and nearer to Him, for now we are consciouss of ourselves, that in order o merge in that Infinte Ocean of goodness, we have to also become free from our mind and become mindless, spotless, our real self as He Himself is. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
  6. What is our true nature? Our true nature, is not our different bodies, but is our soul. And this soul is same in nature as Waheguru Akal Purukh, with the only difference that while He is like a Sun, and each soul is like a ray emanted from it; or even just as a drop from the Ocean. While He is Infinite, the soul below Parbrahm is coverd by the 3 bodies, and prisoner of the mind, which keeps the souls highly tied with the almost unbreakable chains of karmas. It is only by attaching ourselves first with the outer Gurbani, then within also with the Amrit Bani, that the soul gets released from the clutches of the mind and Kal by defeating them with the apaar kirpa of Waheguru. After that, the soul mounted in the vessel of Sat Shabad, merges into the Infinite Ocean of Prem, namely Waheguru Akal Purukh, and becoming one with Him without distinction. This is His beant wadeeayee. Sat Sree Akal.
  7. Yes for sure. Gurbani is the sweetest voice of God, who is Aad Guru. Sat Sree Akal.
  9. A SMALL TRIBUTE TO A MOTHER This is a truly BEAUTIFUL piece please read this at a slow pace, digesting every word at leisure...do not hurry....this is a treasure... For those lucky to still be blessed with your Mom, this is beautiful For those of us who aren't, this is even more beautiful. For those who are moms, you'll love this. The young Mother set her foot on the path of life. "Is this the long way?" she asked. And the Guide said: "Yes, and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it. But the end will be better than the beginning." But the young Mother was happy, and she would not believe that anything could be better than these years. So she played with her children, and gathered flowers for them along the way, and bathed them in the clear streams; and the sun shone on them, and the young Mother cried, "Nothing will ever be lovelier than this." Then the night came, and the storm, and the path was dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother drew them close and covered them with her mantle, and the children said, "Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and nothing can harm us." And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. But at all times she said to the children," A little patience and we are there." So the children climbed, and when they reached the top they said, "Mother, we would not have made it without you." And the Mother, when she lay down at night looked up at the stars and said,"This is a better day than the last, for my children have learned fortitude in the face of hardness. Yesterday I gave them courage. Today, I've given them strength." And the next day came strange clouds, which darkened the earth, clouds of war and hate and evil, and the children groped and stumbled, and the mother said: "Look up. Lift your eyes to the light." And the children looked and saw above the clouds an everlasting glory, and it guided them beyond the darkness. And that night the Mother said, "This is the best day of all, for I have shown my children God." And the days went on, and the weeks and the months and the years, and the mother grew old and she was little and bent. But her children were tall and strong, and walked with courage. And when the way was rough, they lifted her, for she was as light as a feather; and at last they came to a hill, and beyond they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide. And Mother said,"I have reached the end of my journey. And now I know the end is better than the beginning, for my children can walk alone, and their children after them." And the children said, "You will always walk with us, Mother, even when you have gone through the gates." And they stood and watched her as she went on alone, and the gates closed after her. And they said: "We cannot see her but she is with us still. A Mother like ours is more than a memory. She is a living presence......" Your Mother is always with you.... She's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street; she's the smell of bleach in your freshly laundered socks; she's the cool hand on your brow when you're not well. Your Mother lives inside your laughter. And she's crystallised in every teardrop. She's the place you came from, your first home; and she's the map you follow with every step you take. She's your first love and your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can separate you.Not time, not space... not even death!

  11. Hi brother, It is totally true what you say. One day everyone has to pass away. But generally as a human being one can only feel sorry and pray for that soul, moreover when that jeevatma when alive is singing His beant wadeeayee as seva for the sangat, for the only purpose of getting us inspired and imbued with His Bhakti as quoted by you in the Bani above. Sat Sree Akal

  14. Really, people are quite difficult. First we judge, because that what was said, was misunderstod, so it was against gurmat hinduism and islam. When that was cleared, now we still have to judge, of something as which was not said. Why to complicate things? Why to always find faults even when there are no such faults, and not look at our own shortcomings or limitednesss? Why not appreciate the good in others? Though it maybe little. The topic of the video was about karmas and the benevolence of the Divine at the astral plane, when one reaches after death. Usually, we humans, though we say i love god and believe in god, but when a bad / difficult or unpleasnt phase comes in our lives, we compalin and say why me god? Thus they blame god and start loosing faith due to their weakness . But with the expierences of those who entered that astral plane after death, said that they experienced utter love and mercy, and when their past karamas was shown to them as a film on the screen, they gladly accepted and understood the destiny that would await them, yet they agreed without grumbling. Perhaps that is so there, because our vision of Nature is expanded there and we see things as they ought to be, while here on the physical plane, we always wail and cry. The lady in the video was just sharing the experiences, as said, of different people, and all of them, had similar experiences. While we here, we put barriers of all types, and are prone to judge and condem as per our mental stereotype concepts. We set apart people of different religions ,colors , castes, genders and etc... but the Divine does not at all pay any attention to these physical coverings or decorations, the Divine just looks at our spiritual purity or how much dirt we have accumulated in our minds in order to get it cleansed, and one day merge and become one with Him, that´s it. He, contrary to us manmukhs and ignorant or blind, sees His Jot in the beings as souls. That is His only concern. Then also, there where He is, only He exists. there are no Shivas, Krishnas, Brahmas, Vishnus, or any other entities such as angels or devi devtays. That is why the Bani says: Sach Khand vaseh Nirankar. It is a real pity, that in spite of having the highest teachings in the form of Bani, as parsad by our Guru Sahiban, yet we look here and there for variety. First Patshahee foreseeing our weakness, and in order to clear any misconceptions of the Supreme and everlasting Truth, said: Ikoankar Satnam, Satgur parsad jap. He cleary says, that the Supreme everlasting Truth is not diversity, but only One, which is Satnam, without any spouses, weapons, children and their spouses. That Supreme reality is Nam or Shabad as per Bani, who does not reside in Baikunth, Shivpuri or any Brahmpuiri, whcih are all much in the perishable and mayavee creation, with all their different avatars. Yes, they are all "KOOR", and all this utter nonsense is surely against Gurmat, and those who easily and happily promote such andhkaar or avidya, are also enemies of Sikhee, whle being born into sikh surroundings and atmosphere. Yet these very people tell others delete your post for you are misleading the sangat. Huhhhhh! As the saying goes on, there is no bigger blind than the one who refuses to see the truth and prefer to turn around and look at other side. Bats do not want come into light, so they say, sun does not exist, for they come out only when there is darkness/avidya, in which they are quite comfortable. Having light, they deny that vey light which they willingly do not want to see. Yet they blame the light, out of their much arrogance and ignorance. Once again, why are you so much against that lady in the video, I just can not understand. As said above, her topic was about karmas, and the benevolent Nature of the Divine as per terms of Love and Mercy. Did she ever told you she was going to talk about devis devtays, trinities, or expand her talks on the wheel of eighty four, which she did not tell you, and thus you got dissaponted? Hey come on, can you think of covering in a video of just 8 minutes, all your expectations, and to which she is not obliged in any way? Then why the hell so much fuss? Be humble and accept your shorctomings for not catching the correct perspective on a specific topic and that too in a very short context of a video of just 8 minutes. Then too, after giving you satisfactory answers as per the point of Gurbani, you arrogantly/ boldly said, it is from your Gurmat point of view... Eehhhhhhhh? You have always to complaint about something or the other, in order to not put your foot down, for it hurts your ego, so now you took the topic in a different direction and said: but why did she not mentioned, this, that, that .....and etc. Why the hell had she to do so? As said above, did she announce it, or promised you and she failed to do so? if not, then just keep quite and for god´s sake and do not create controversies, delete your posts above, for your notions about spirituality are totally against Gurmat, with that huge army of devtays, trinties and their perishable realms or abodes. if you ever want to talk about Sikhee and spirituality, just talk about Gurbani and Gurmat, as per teachings of our Guru Sahiban. The bani says: Sabna jeea ka iko Daata. And so, who is that Creator Lord God? The answer to that is as per the Bani : Ik Oankar, Satnam. That Satnam is the only Truth and Lord God of all and everything. And His abode is Sach Khand, there where He resides. And to realize Him and become one with that Satnam without any distiction, is the only duty of a sikh, without having to look here or there for any Vishnu or Baikunth, any Brahma or Brahmpuri, any Shiva or Shivpuri, and devtays or Swarg. For a true sikh all these distractions have just no value, it is all utter polutted nonsense. Satgur bajoh hor kachee hae bani. Just as if there is beggar holding a bundle of stones and empty shells, and you show him a 100 dollar note, automatically without thinking, he will open his hands to drop off the stones and shells to get hold of the 100 dollar note. Similarly, when one has Guru jee and Satnam as our ultimate goal, one automatically stops looking at any devis, devtays or trinities, which is all maya and koor, against Gurmat. The Lord God Satnam is formless(Anoop, Agam) and beyond time and space(Akal Purukh). This Shabad, Naam, as such, has no wife masaging his feet, or resting on a serpent, or sitting on a flower, or on tigers, or lions, with bulls, rats or garoor as vehicles to move about, nor has many arms holding on weapons of different models to finish someone. Why is our community so blind to mix the polluted avidya of perishable variiety of forms, sizes, genders and so, with the pure teachings of our Guru Sahiban, who always point towards the One, namely Waheguru Akal Purukh, Shabad or Nam. The Bani says: Ekas bina sabh dandh hae. Without that One truth of Naam as ultimate and everlasting Truth, all forms and everything else is "KOOOOORRRRRR" hey, Is that clear enough? Or do you need more clarifications? It is not me saying anything, it is the very Truth of Bani, whcih says that apart from One Satnam or Nam, everything else is useless, futile and persihable, thus untruth or maya. So why even to want to look for these petty deities, that nobody denies their respectable existence, but the thing is, we as sikhs should only look for Waheguru and His abode of Sach Khand Moorakh Pen Jee, I am sorry if you feel offended or disturbed with these my posts, the thing is, whenever I see anything against Gurmat and not wanting or refusing to see the reality, I just get bugged up, and moreover telling me that I am the one misguiding the sangat. How possible that? It has to be really a twisted mind? That too, whatever I say, I say it with the support of Gurbani. Then? How can I be misguiding ? Is it not the other way? For judging and condeming without understanding the Bani in the right perspective, but in one´s own limited perspective Once again, I ask you to forgive me if you have felt hurt, cause for me, Gurbani and Gurmat is first and above everything. I am tired of apnay taking lesser entities and their abodes as something near Waheguru, if not equal to Waheguru, and giving them much importance, rather then to Nam or Satnam, the only Truth., as per Bani I do understand, that maybe according to your sanskaras and capacity, there are some things in Gurmat which just fly above your head, but please be patient and humble, and also listen and see, or ponder on it a bit, without any rush to react. Speed to react, is devlish. I have no doubt you have love and devotion for Waheguru, but it would be adviisable, if you kept Him only in your mind without any second third and so on ..... the list is quite big. But only He, Waheguru. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
  15. Moorakh Jee, I respect your opinion which is surely your perspective, but tell me ,have you not gone a bit in haste in judging and not getting the real view for whatever reasons it may be? I am not perfect, and I have a lot to learn yet, but one thing is for sure, if I see anything against Gurmat, i will surely point it out, forget about presenting or posting something against Sikhee. I do not see anything wrong in her video, for she is not preaching, but sharing some real experiences of different people of different races, which many of us lack, thus stay between the 4 walls of aquired theory, we have no first hand such experiences to say this is wrong or right .... but yet we judge. I find it fascinating what she says, and somehow reveals and confirms the true nature of the divine, which above all is love and mercy. Of course, she and her teachings/philosophy are far lower than sikhee, but yet, there are some basic elements which are common to all who want to tread the path of spirituality. She mentions how the law of karma works. The Bani says: aapay bheejay aapay khaae. She means it is by our own karmas that our destines are designed. He, wahiguru is an Infinte Ocean of Love and mercy, He can never ever judge anybody, He just can not, it is just against His true nature, for if He were to judge, then believe it, we could never ever have a roof to hide ourselves. The biggest proof of His true nature of Love and mercy, is the wheel of eighty four. For however low a soul can fall down with bad karmas, it always gets a chance to grow up again and mature spiritual wise, get purified with His Bhakti and thus merge in Him. You see, there are no bad souls. For souls are as same in nature as Him. The only bad entity is the mind, which with maya and the 3 bodily coverings on the soul, have kept the souls imprisoned in the mayavee creation. Then, does not the Bani in Aartee say: Sabh meh Jot, Jot hae soee. This means His light is in everyone, and He Himself is Light, and ultimately the soul ray light, has to merge in the Infinite Light of Akal Purukh So, if she says, the souls see light which gives them so much love, what is wrong in it? You see, here we have different types of light in power or intensity, like a bulb, a candle light, a tube light..... now all these lights can be more powerful if more power watts are in that light. Like also we have the stars, sun and moon and galaxies upon galaxies, which as we all know have much morelight than anything compared on here earth. Then ultimately we have the Light of Waheguru, which is present in full splendour in our beloved Guru Sahiban, and referring to the intensity of this Light of Akal Purukh, the Bani says: Jeh sau chanda ugveh, suraj charey hazaar bin Satgur ghor andhaar. This means, if there were 100 moons in the firmament, and then if even 1000 suns were added, then too with that much intensity of light produced by so many planets as moons and stars as suns, but without Satgur(Guru Sahiban) there would be utter darkness. So you see, she does not say, those souls reaching in the inner realms, have seen Guru Jee or Akal Purukh; but she is trying to say, that the spiritual entities/forces, which are given the duty to administrate the Triloki creation also have a certain light, just as we mamulee souls have His light also. We have mayors, governors, ministers and king, each one´s powers and ruling authorities are specific to their roles to play in their respective fields. So, if a child sees someone greeting and paying respect or attention to a mayor of a city or town, that does not convert him into a king. In a similar way, if she says, those who enter the astral or spiritual lower realms after death, see light and get love, that does not mean, that entity is necessarily Waheguru, though they have never seen anything with that light and thus mistakenly take that light of God, or does it for you? Moreover, though the whole world, or even thoughout all the brahmands seek God, but, how many do they get Him? As we see and know by Sikhee, not even a 1 % of all the souls. You may disagree or ask why so? Well, the Bani can not be more transparent in this respect, for it clearly says : Jin Har japeeya, se Har hoeeya. Nanak Naam jahaz hae, jinee chareeya se utareeya paar. This means, those who do the jaap of His Nam, merge in Him, by boarding on that very vessel of Naam. Now tell me, how many muslims believers of Koran which you mention, or the hindus who believe in the Trinity and their gods and devis or devtays, or even the rest of the wrold, just tell me, how many do Nam japna as per teachings of Sikhee? Of course, with their bhakti and karmas, at most and with good fortune they can reach Baikunth or Shivpuri, or the heaven of Allah, but never ever Waheguru. So you see, the craetion has a purpose to go on running, which we may not comprehen at ourhuman level, we are all prisoners here, and though we are born into Sikhee by His utter grace, but then too, we can not go and tell to the rest of the dharmas, hey, leave all that you do, come and join sikhee if you want muktee. Just try it and see what happens. there would surely be a foolish world war .... Once again, due to the spiritual wealth of the Bani, we know that each and everone has his/her load of karmas on their heads, each one has a different destiny, to keep running this creation, it is only a few wadbhegee jeevas, atmas, souls, who by His apaar kirpa, realize the value of the teachings given to us by Guru Sahiban, and tehn too among them who follow it implictly, are the ones who fulfill their purpose of Life as human beings, do His True bhakti and merg in Him. To end, if there is anything which can be summarized to understand what the lady wants to share with us, it is only to highlight, the virtues of utter Love and Mercy, of the divine, be it at any spiritual level, but which is most at it is peak, only in Waheguru Akal Purukh. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
  16. I think this text is very beautiful, very true .... ! Hardly the day started and ... it is already six o'clock in the evening. Barely arrived on Monday and it's already Friday. ... and the month is already over. ... and the year is almost up. ... and already 40, 50 or 60 years of our lives have passed. ... and we realize that we lost our parents, friends. and we realize that it is too late to go back ... So ... Let's try, however, to take full advantage of the time we have left ... Let's not stop looking for activities that we like ... Let's put color in our greyness ... Let's smile at the little things in life that put balm in our hearts. And yet, we must continue to enjoy serenely the time that remains. Let's try to eliminate the "after" ... I do it after ... I will say after ... I will think about it after ... We leave everything for later as if "after" was ours. Because what we do not understand is that: after, the coffee cools ... after, priorities change ... after, the charm is broken ... after, health passes ... after, the children grow up ... after, the parents get older ... after, the promises are forgotten ... after, the day becomes the night ... after, life ends ... And after that it's often too late .... So ... leave nothing for later ... Because always waiting for later, we can lose the best moments, the best experiences, the best friends, the best family ... The day is today ... The moment is now ... We are no longer at the age where we can afford to postpone until tomorrow what needs to be done right away.

  18. WHILE DIFFERENT RELIGIONS BLINDLY QUARREL AND FIGHT TO IMPOSE AND CONVERT OTHERS TO THEIRS, THE SIMLICITY AND BEAUTY OF TEACHINGS OF GURU SAHIBAN ARE UNIVERSAL FOR ALL MANKIND, IRRESPECTIVE OF CATSE, CLASS , NATIONALITY OR RELIGION, FULL OF MERCY, LOVE AND BLISS. FOLLOWING ARE JUST A FEW VERSES OF SREE GURU NANAK DEV, WHICH CONFIRM THE ABOVE STATEMENT AND WHICH FAIRLY AND CORRECTLY DESCRIBE THE HIGHEST TRUE LORD. ਬਲਿਹਾਰੀ ਕੁਦਰਤਿ ਵਸਿਆ Balihaaree Kudharath Vasiaa I am a sacrifice to Your almighty creative power which is pervading everywhere. ਤੇਰਾ ਅੰਤੁ ਨ ਜਾਈ ਲਖਿਆ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ Thaeraa Anth N Jaaee Lakhiaa ||1|| Rehaao || Your limits cannot be known ਜਾਤਿ ਮਹਿ ਜੋਤਿ ਜੋਤਿ ਮਹਿ ਜਾਤਾ ਅਕਲ ਕਲਾ ਭਰਪੂਰਿ ਰਹਿਆ Jaath Mehi Joth Joth Mehi Jaathaa Akal Kalaa Bharapoor Rehiaa || Your Light is in Your creatures, and Your creatures are in Your Light; Your almighty power is pervading everywhere. * In this verse above, He is saying, there is no such being in which He does not exist, be it a muslim, a hindu, a christian, a buddhist, or even animals or non believers, or even in the different gods, devtays, incarnations, prophets.... ਤੂੰ ਸਚਾ ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਸਿਫਤਿ ਸੁਆਲ੍ਹ੍ਹਿਉ ਜਿਨਿ ਕੀਤੀ ਸੋ ਪਾਰਿ ਪਇਆ Thoon Sachaa Saahib Sifath Suaaliho Jin Keethee So Paar Paeiaa || You are the True Lord and Master; Your Praise is so beautiful. One who sings it, is carried across. *And in this verse above, He proclaims that, this very Lord which is already within each and everbody and place, no need for foolish hatred , and He is so merciful, that without any conversions, killings or disputes, if anyone just sings His praises, that being, that soul is carried across from this plane of falsehood and dissolution, to His abode of love, bliss and eternity. This is the unique wadeeayee(greatness) of the teachings of our beloved Guru Sahiban, namely sikhee. Sat Sree Akal.
  19. Beautiful topic/thread, indeed. But let us not forget, nobody can love Him, if it is not by His grace. Forget to love, but, even no one can, even think about Him. To those whom He wants to reunite with Him, through the strings of His Love, then we become restless and can not resist His pull from within. So every action or step of ours towards Him, is nothing, but Him pulling us, which no one can resist. Thus it can be well said: Sach kahoo sun leho sabeh, Jin prem kiyo tinhee Prabh paayo. He makes us love Him by His apaar kirpa, only then do we play the game of love with Him, by loving Him utmost. But to love Him not by mere words, nor any rituals nor fanatism, but by being fully engrossed in His bhakti. That is the way of love to reunite and merge in Him. So which is that way to love Him and merge in Him? In simple words, Fifth Patshahee reveals us the secret of highest spiituality, when He tells us: Jin Har japeeya, se Har hoeeya. As simple as that. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
