    GurpreetKaur got a reaction from Kaur1510 in Any simran conferences or E-simran place?   
    Yea love acapella jatha and gursevak jatha. Their new simran at guru har rai gurdwara sahib is beautiful. You should make a video while doing it with guitar. I always like when when there is western twist to the kirtan and simran. Snatam Kaur was the first white girl I ever seen as a Sikh and especially doing kirtan. I was baffled and then learned about 3HO and I was more baffled. Lol found out so many white people( lack of better term) being Sikh, don't really agree with their whole technique about gurbani as mantra but if that helps people no harm.  
    And true no one will grade me, human mind is crazy especially mine. It spend most of the time learning techniques rather than doing it. If I throw away all the distraction and just sit and use any method it will work lol
    Some wise man said that human always keep collecting techniques  and never use them. Lol

    GurpreetKaur got a reaction from Kaur Inder in The Truth about Hemkunt   
    People have immense faith in Gurbani and they have the full right to say what Gurbani says. Next thing you will argue that I have no right to say labor pain is painful just because I have not gone through it yet and I should not trust my mom . If we are going to look at it that way then we all are frauds. Everybody is doing their best to help themselves and others. It's always a good idea to be humble and hear what others are saying rather than judging them "Oh show me if that's true". Knowledge is pretty powerful and free too. We all need teachers, when I am showing anger and if someone who is not able to control his anger comes up and tell me hey don't get mad, getting mad is no good. If I question him Oh really show me first if you can control your anger then trust me I am the biggest Fool alive on this earth .  When I do my path and I go outside and my brother starts annoying me and I get mad. He always go people who do path should not get mad. What he does not understand that I fail every time and still try and his words can make me quit practicing what I am practicing . 
    why people are saying "All is God".
    Simple answer is because Guru Ji says so. 
    I never bring tukks from Gurbani because I am a kindergarten level here but this one seems fun let's try so here we go plus I need to learn too. 
    God is everything, God is everything, without God, there is nothing. 
     You can take it as metaphorically or literally. I take it as both ways and would not mind telling others either . Because next tuk will say 
    sab kuch apey aap hai dooja avar na koyi.
    He himself is everything, there is no other at all.
    Now don't start the argument about Calling God "He". I am too old for this useless drama. 
    We all experience the separation because boy we are full of Ego. Have you ever heard a heart touching Kirtan and you feel that love for everybody and everyone . For me that's oneness. Very rarely it happen but you can sit and just wanna hug every single person on this planet and tell them how much you love them. But some people will take it wrong way so be careful lol. Try to find where are you? I tried other day while eating. I felt like I was in my head and when I went to sleep I felt I was in my dreams and when I heard a beautiful Kirtan I felt I was in my heart. When we day dream we can be anywhere . Up to this day I don't know where am I ? I am here and then I am there but in the end I am nowhere. I am an illusion because when I shift my gaze in certain perspectives while looking in mirror I can make myself invisible . Kinda hard and useless to explain but stand front of a mirror and keep looking at it until you kinda zone out and poof your face is gone in mirror. It's a fun exercise, I mean better than making faces front of mirror .I know y'all do it too,  I can't be the only one . Lol 
    The primal lord, the architect of destiny who created you also put egotism in you .
    Everything is a wave until it gets observed and become Particle. Who is the observer which makes it a matter. Electrons act differently when they know they are being watched . Those sneaky suckers makes life so mysterious for us. If you magnificent the glasses all the way , you will "hear" ( why in quotes because science says so) that humans are nothing but thoughts and information . It went from brain ( flesh) to neurons  to atoms to data. At quantum level, we have no body but an existence composed of data and information . Time to watch more videos on Holographic Universe. Go check it out , they are fun lol 
    Sometime you will hear a child saying Mommy stealing is wrong and that child might steal after 2 hours but mom will go true stealing is bad. So , the point of this long post is (not only for you but for many others too who kept saying Oh your avastha is not there yet, so don't talk like this) take their knowledge and use it for your benefit rather than judging them. You will come across many people who are full of knowledge but keep gaining the knowledge instead of practicing it but still they have really good points to make . Some people keep learning and learning and once their vessel is full then they start practicing and some curious ones start sharing their knowledge. I do that too, when I learn something I wanna go and share and when someone ask me oh Really show me it's true then I am like next time I am telling you nothing lol. Have an open mind, a mind where you hear what they are saying and if does not resonate with you toss is out and if does maybe look deep into it.

    GurpreetKaur got a reaction from tva prasad in Women Sexually Harassing Men   
    So many contradictions going on or am I the confused one? In one side you are saying now women have more power and status so they are showing their true color. Which we will say for the sake of argument that harassing men.
    On other side all the CK series are talking about those poor women who were using men with their manipulating games and their so called tears .
    Then you are saying an average men can easily take 4 or 5 women so how women in power and status are able to harass men sexually now ? 
    How CK is way ahead of its time when it is not even mentioning anything about women in power controlling men. All those stories are basically repeating the same thing which is that women uses mind games and men are stupid to not understand them. which is not true all the time since women are the most emotional ones and they can be easily manipulated too. Men play mind games too to get their means out. Iyou can choose to find negativity in opposite gender or all the positive qualities, take is on you cuz whatever you will focus on that's what you will attract.

    GurpreetKaur got a reaction from tva prasad in Sikh Astrologer   
    Astrology is not what you see in horoscope section or Internet, way deeper than that. There are astrology schools where people get their degree in astrology. Before I got serious into sikhi I was in so much stuff which does not line up with Gurmat in terms of esoteric knowledge. Don't worry, I was not into black type of stuff just Egyptian stuff lol. Astrology obsession was one of them, I had my "science" books in my book bag and my astrology books along with them. They were hidden because I did not want anyone to laugh at me. 
    I spent about 7 or so months on intense astrology learning and I was barely able to scratch the surface and gave up since my mind was ready to explode. I feel bad for people whether western or non western who spend so much time to learn and people like James randi come up with their debunk show and find the weakest link and prove that science doesn't not prove it. Many westerns go to India to learn and they spend years and years to master it. Hinduism is an oldest religion and they very well know their science and universe, if not all. Hitler gained knowledge about weapons reading Hindu scripture if I am not mistaking it. I would not judge people who have the ability to see beyond these 5 senses. Sure there are bunch of fake ones, but genuine ones are being insulted too.
    i had a friend she was psychic and my pahbi ji(SIL) was dying to have a baby. Her pain and yearning for a kid was eating me up and that was the first time I consulted a psychic who was also a friend of mine. Never trusted her but still wanted to give it a try. She predicted exact month and year for her to conceive. She gave two weeks window frame and my pahbi ji was pregnant in that window frame. How did she do it I don't know?. We had no faith in her prediction, still it came true . But I am glad!.
    Science is not something which is very trustworthy anymore, one scientist prove something and next will disprove it and create another fact or theory. Experience is something which we can trust these days. Lol
    sorry said anything wrong, astrology and yoga has been very misunderstood in west.

    It's a real feeling that you actually feel the warmth and protection of Waheguru. Almost as if you are sat in his lap like a child and you have the view of just seeing mankind as creation regardless of age, color, creed and religion.
    I know it's indescribable, but I remember that it redefined words like Hukam and fearless for me. I actually began to really understand a small fraction of the Gurus steps when they walked in hukam to shaheedis. Have a look at this fantastic painting by our own @BhagatSingh. Look carefully at an enlarged version and just try and absorb it calmly whilst at the same time sinking into it. . You may sense some strong components of joy, love and protection. A  feel of being untouchable, almost as if saying "bring it on".    I have to compliment Bhagat once again for the Lord's kirpa and blessings which has enabled him to paint such precious art.
    Totally see what you are saying here. It's almost as if it's  just you(the witness) and a single God in and around everything.
    I think this is one of the keys when it comes to merging with Waheguru to the max. You start to feel that the line we created separating God and maya begins to disappear. It seems that the duality starts to dissolve and instead of assuming that you had to separate from maya, you begin to learn that there was no maya and it is all HIM.

    I think I know what you mean.
    This love is a very powerful thing. When this mindset lasts for a few days, a lot of extraordinary things begin to happen. ie even as of now, just cherishing each breath is very intoxicating. It's a feeling that cannot be described, its as if the entire body is tasting some sort of "sweetness". When just closing the eyes and sitting in silence - it feels as if energy is just radiating through every part of the body. The vibrations arise but with the breath, another type of tingling sensation arises as well. It's very hard to describe. 
    It's a very selfless love where there is no desire to receive. But you know this energy will continue to build the more you express this emotion of love. Experiences come and go just like thoughts (and thoughts come and go just like clouds in the sky). No desire to associate with anything. Everything just is as it is. There is a desire to express nothing but love even to the people who I've had bad experiences with. 
    Within the mind, everything begins to drop. Every idea of identity, religion, relationship and attachment begins to fade. The world is seen through the eyes of a witness or perceiver (if those words are appropriate). The mind literally feels like its dissolving.

    You are experiencing some of the very many changes that occur in your normal day.  You will hopefully get to realise that "anand" has a very different meaning to what most people assume.  The only reason I can say is, Waheguru is showering you with the many blessings.
    Just last night I was talking to my wife about how I want to go back and experience that avastha experience and mind-set again! It lasted for months and starts with shorter periods of few days first few times.
    My advice is too stay quiet whilst watching and observing all around you.  You should begin to find many answers of truth coming your way and and also many signals and hints for any decisions you may need to make.  Before you can see the brahm jyot in everyone and everything, Gobind makes you aware that he is working in every single living thing and object around you!

    Commonalities in all spiritual practices tend to be these ideas of love and compassion. Even in the past few weeks, I have noticed that being in a very positive and compassionate frame of thinking pushes the mind into a very deep blissful state of meditation. 
    Is there any reason behind this phenomenon?
    What do you personally do to stay in this frame of mindset?

Men or women, no one is dirty, it's just our mind. Once we clean them up then this word dirty will be gone from dictionary.

    Bhagat pooran Singh ji started from begging and cleaning people's feces while taking care of those not so blessed people. Over the time he became such a well known person that he was given Medals. My thinking is totally different than you, for me you don't demand leadership roles, you do your kirat and you will be rewarded then you have no big Ego. If a woman or man really want to serve, they can start from anywhere and what they have. All that leadership roles are an Ego trip and it will get us nowhere. Mother teresa said that when she clean people's feces, she's not disgusted since she sees God in everyone. Bhagat ji is a mother Teresa for India and had the same thinking. These are the type of leaders I want. Not who can't take no and start a war.
    I thought the biggest reason you were fighting since there is not a single place where female panj peyarey are allowed and you told me yesterday that AKJ allow it so I am just thinking all that time you wasted on women right was not even necessary. 
    Agree that no one should be overlooked based on their gender, but I have more respect for the woman  with high avastha who let it go since she realized all of this is trivial.

    Kabeer ji did not waste his life with rosary. In the beginning people are not at the state where they can do simran or rememberance of Vaheguroo without any aid. Rosary is just an aid, just like simran or kirtan to remember Vaheguroo. I do jaap with Rosary or Telly counter because without it, i end up doing nothing. Now you will say 5 banis are brahmanvad too. I do set a goal for 40 days or a month and try to finish it. For you this might be a brahamanvad, but for me it's my time well spent since I am nowhere near to be able to remember Vaheguroo ji 24/7.
    Don't create blockage for beginner who are trying their best to reach a state where they won't need anything. I have read numerous times how when people do paath by counting they are doing brahamvad. Maskeen ji said in the beginning people start doing path or simran because they want something( maya) but eventually their  Kundalini rises and they start feeling the Love. You can't expect me to start climbing mountains when I am learning how to climb stairs. 
    A baby takes baby steps to learn walking, he uses mothers hands and furniture to walk and eventually start walking on his own. If you can do simran and jaap without any aid, good for you. Don't discourage others.
    If someone wants to do 40 sukhmani sahib in 20 days or 10 days, there is nothing wrong in it. Repetition is for our subconscious mind and everything that gets into subconscious part of the mind start becoming reality. If someone wants to carry a Rosary and Telly counter, let's not close our mind and start saying stop this, say Vaheguroo's name in your heart. Tell them great job,make sure ego won't enter in you saying I did this much amount of paath then the very whole purpose is defeated.

I don't care what your books says or your teachers teach you, no one is shudar and no one is higher.

    All of that stuff has been said on this forum. Every single thing you are saying has been discussed on, argued on and it gotten to the point where no party was listening to each other but just getting on with the argument.  
    You are 13.. Only 13 living in America ( a place where so much freedom is given that option is on you how you gonna and wanna use that freedom ). Even if you are given no freedom you can still get it. I don't know if your words are exactly your words or are being influenced by reading posts on this forum. Let's talk about being a housewife like your mom. I have not met a single Indian family who does not want their kids to excel in academic area and land a perfect job. Most of the mundey either getting on with drugs or driving trucks so parents always have high hopes from their daughters. Being happy and unhappy is such a weird phenomena, you can have everything and you can still be unhappy or you can be a penniless but can be the happiest person ever . However, let's agree that your family will force you to be a housewife then you always have the option to make it clear that you wanna have a career and work. Your husband will help you to have a career. This thing you should not be worrying and thinking about at the age of 13 to be honest .
    I won't talk about why harimandar sahib Ji is not allowing women do Seva since I will never question why women are given the right to give birth and men not. And so many other rituals and rules which goes above our head but are there. Things like laws where you slap a man and people laugh with you but if you slap a woman they will be ready to kill. There are advantages and disadvantages of being a man and woman . This issue has been discussed and there are many other places which allows women to do all Seva and instead of fighting with the people who are non supportive, let's go to them who are supportive. We can waste our whole life fighting about who is given more priveledge and if we do the math, we will realize we women are not that victim as much we are calling ourself . You are pretty young, don't and I mean don't get influenced with things you read or hear. 
    Why vaheguroo loves men more than women ?
    And how exactly we have gotten to this conclusion? Oh based on the perception that society thinks men can have more freedom and able to do Seva at gurughar and women can't so god loves men more than women. Then think about all those people at this moment crying for food, God must have hated them so much that they are born like this. People suffering from diseases, dying every single day are the most hatred people by God?
    you are only 13 and your thinking is Making me sad since all the stuff you said is exactly the words of other member and please don't go on that route. This women rights thing will get you so crazy that you will forget the real meaning of life.
    Everybody regardless of their gender go through phases where they feel their life is worthless no matter how much money, status they have. It's human nature, only people who do meditation and do good deeds feel good about their lives .  Very few are those who can stay happy. Don't think your life is doomed since you are assuming all these things. Good and bad days both will come until you will learn there is no difference between them and it will take quite a time to get there unfortunately but it's all worth it lol 
    I don't know where I am going with this but you gotta change your thinking and instead of looking all the stuff you saying. Look into the things you can do. Start with baby steps, look for the things you can do but your bro ether can't? Parents have their different ways to show love. I used to complain that my brother would get new clothes and I used to wear his used one. But my brother was more spoiled one and I was the easy one to listen so I was helping mom dad financially by wearing my brothers used school uniform lol. That time I never got it and now I know I helped them. I did get new clothes but those were girly ones. Even my friends used to get their older sisters used clothes so gender has nothing to do with it. Some parents love girls more than boys and it's pretty common and it has nothing to do with gender . I have never seen men complaining, they actually feel happy. My brother appreciate now when mom treating me really nice and he joins her and I kinda get extra attention . The point is everybody have their own way of showing love. 
    Don't feel bad about being a woman, anybody who calls you unclean and dirty has to clean itself first. You are the only one who can judge where you stand, what other says will be useless since their opinion are their perceptions not your reality . I have never felt bad about being a woman, always felt blessed. Being a woman is a huge blessing, without women this world will stop so why think bad about oneself . Gurbani never put women down and 10th Master never hated women. I think you are referring to CK series, you are only 13. Start with what is good rather than what you assume is not good. Start with cultivating love first and see how it changes you . YouTube Hans wilheim, I am too lazy to upload but worth listening .
