  1. Thanks all for helping but I have gotten all my answers regarding this situation. I got everything figured out from someone.
  2. Just had an amazing experience. I was just laying down and heard my pulse but also found myself chanting "vahe-guru" with each heart beat. I tried to see if I was making up things so I tried to stop it but it didn't stop. It just kept going. My body was completely still like one in deep sleep to the point I thought I wasn't even in my body anymore.
  3. What asees can a mere mortal like me give? The lord is the giver and the reciever. He is all. Every comfort lies at his feet. Our father is worth all the praise.
  4. There's really no need to apologise or thank me, bro. Don't feel bad about it lol. Thank you so much, bhenji. I'll be sure to check these videos out.
  5. No need to apologise I appreciate you trying to help.
  6. Yes, I understand what u mean about the inner feeling. Sometimes such a profound change is noticed that I start to second guess myself in case I may have a medical condition or something. Who are Simranjeet Singh and Dharamjeet Singh? I can't say I've heard of them before. Do they have an e-mail? In all honesty, I personally feel it has had the opposite effect to a road block ! It has made me realise that i have a very long way to still go and there is so much more. As an idea, I feel it is ONLY a fraction (1/10th) of the complete journey to sachkhand. The only thing that can worry me at times is that I may feel that everyone thinks I'm becoming introverted and detached. But I am far from that because I feel much more in touch and attached with REALITY. Edited January 30, 2014 by Lucky Quote Sat1176 1,848 Posted January 31, 2014 I can totally relate to what you are saying. I actually feel internal detachment occurring that I have to force myself to remain grounded so to speak. Thanks a lot, bhen ji.
  7. What's happening?! I'm confused!
  8. Haven't a clue, really. I cant even feel my body half the time. Like I cant even remember my name sometimes. The other day a someone was calling me by my name, I heard but I didnt feel compelled to turn around coz I forgot I had a name. I completely forgot there is something even called a name. At that moment I was thinking "what's this word i havent heard before. Doesnt soumd english" after some seconds of pondering I realised that's what they call me. Hahaha. Then I started thinking... Why do we need names when there is only one. We are all one. Kinda thing, I was astounded lol. Sometimes when someone asks for my name I forget what it is. I just feel like it's a meaningless thing. Rather I find it highly amusing that we call ourselves "other people" hahaha! I'm laughing like a loony. Proobably sound mad as hell! It's the same, really. I feel more energised, though. Some days I straight up feel like running 30 laps around the oval. Been eating the same. But not feeling like I "need" to eat. When I eat I feel like it's my body eating, it's the one that "needs" to eat. I don't feel like I'm eating. I know i don't eat lol. Honestly, eating feels funny as heck! It feels like I'm playing a game, hahaha. I know the rules, I just don't associate with 'em. This world feels like a game. Have u ever played a game. U r doing stuff in the game but u know it's not real, it's part of the game. In call of duty you could be shooting people but u know it's not real. U know u didnt shoot people. Probably a bad analogy but whatever. Lol. Could be. It's winter right now in Australia. But Melbourne (where I live) still lives up to its stereotype of having 4 seasons in a day lol.
  9. I just don't see people as separate as much. Like everything material seems fake and empty. I just dont see people as their bodies. I feel a connection with them. Like they are me. And I don't feel like I'm doing anything coz sometimes when I am doing actions I feel like I am everything and I dont do anything. I feel like everything I'm doing is an illlusion. It feels like only my body is doing it but I'm certain in that moment that I'm not my body even if i try to associate myself with it, I cant. Hence sometimes, I can do whatever and not feel anything towards it. Really, bro? Thanks, mate. You can DM if you have any questions. More than happy to help
  10. I don't even know where to post this so I'll just post it here. So recently, I've been doing stuff but I don't feel it. I don't even know how to explain it. But it feels like I did something but I feel like I didn't do it. For example, when I bump into people, normally I would apologise but nowadays I feel like I'm not bumping into people but bumping into myself and it feels like I didn't even do it. I do stuff but don't feel like I'm doing it. I feel like nothing. Idk how to explain it but I don't feel any emotion or anything towards what I do, sometimes. It's like... if i eat, i don't feel like I'm eating, etc. I just feel like i didn't do anything. I probably repeated half of the sentences but I don't care, lol. Am i going crazy? I think I am. I just need to clarify before i head off to the psychiatrist, coz they don't help, lol.
  11. Some scientists say that the Universe began from nothing. Does that contradict with the beginning of the universe in Sikhism? Does "nothing" truly exist? If Vaheguru is omnipresent, therefore is present everywhere always, that contradicts the nature of "nothingness" or is "nothing" just the absence of maya (matter)?
  12. So, is the void nothing, yet everything. Nothing because it is unmamifest therefore free of maya. Yet, everything because maya... well, basically everything originates from it?
  13. No worries, mate Dhan Dhan Guru Ramdas ji Maharaj.

  15. It is not against gurmat, rather the opposite I may add. I heard this sakhi a few years ago where a gursikh (can't remember who exactly) was bringing a mango for Guru ji (again can't remember specifically which of the 10 gurus, but it barely matters here). He ate the mango while remembering Guru ji through his surat. Guru ji was acting as though eating a mango despite holding nothing in his hands. The gursikhs present asked what he was doing and guru ji said he was eating a mango given by a devotee. There is another sakhi where a gursikh holds the Guru's feet through his surat and Guru Hargobind ji (I think it was) couldn't move his feet. However, looking at the context of the pankti, it means to serve the lord through constant awareness of pleasing him. I understand how you might have confused it.
  16. You are quite welcome. It is good to resolve doubts. Surat simply refers to awareness, in this context, as per my understanding. The awareness of doing what pleases god is the surat referred to here. I.e. trying to do things that you believe will please God. This could be anything as long as your awareness is aimed at pleasing God through your actions.
  17. "Neti, neti" comes from "na iti, na iti" which translates to 'not this, not this'. Thus, an attempt to understand Brahman (God) through identifying what he is not. Sunn samadhi, as explained in the video is when one transcends this notion of "neti, neti" as one realises all is Brahman. This is when the sense of "I am", therefore ego, is eradicated. This results in coming out of trigunn maya as the ego is dissolved. As for the pankti above, it is saying that, serve with the awareness that: only that is approved which pleases the Lord. Thus, know that the actions which are pleasing to God as worthwhile. Funny story, just a few days ago I was wondering 'what is it that makes a good action good and a bad action bad?' As they are both created by God, then why is one considered 'good' and another 'bad'? Then as I was listening to Tva Prasad Swaiye, it struck me... The translation said "the Great Giver looks daily at our flaws but does not stop providing (even when annoyed at our evil deeds)". This implies that evil deeds are something which is not pleasing to God. Therefore, good deeds please the Lord. It all made sense... Even though nothing is 'good' or 'bad' (advait), during the initial stages one should do 'good' deeds in order to please God. This is why each religion is bound by rules, despite the fact that all is the same due to one source.
  18. Yes, I agree with you. It is a very sad reality, indeed. Sometimes, the best we can do is bring about awareness, but people believe what they want to believe. As I gain more and more experience, the more I realise how helpless we are as individuals, sometimes. We are forced to witness all these horrible acts and can do nothing about them. The corrupt rule, the masses follow like sheep, revering them as if they are superhuman. People who oppose the corrupt rule are looked down upon. Yes, I agree regarding the Huddersfield grooming case- these people who represent the community don't care at all. It's utterly disgusting! We, as a community are experts at ignoring such sensitive issues. I agree with you on your last point as well. An inferiority complex among our people is quite a problem. Would you put strict parenting or a lack thereof into the equation as well? I've seen kids in relationships without their parents having a single clue about it. It's heartbreaking to see the types of things kids get to behind their parents' backs, including drugs and stuff. But yes, keeping up with the times and trying to look cool has certainly taken a backseat to morals and family among our youth. It's detrimental to our future as they are our future. I think the best thing our community can do is focus on the youth, before it's too late.
  19. That is the whole point, we are failing at the basics. The mentality of our people is the problem and hard to fix. You are right, giving up is not the answer, neither am I advising the same. I'm suggesting that we start with fixing our own mentality as also encourage our friends. I think if we have a respectable character we will be able to help others fix themselves. I see hypocrisy, cognitive dissonance and dishonesty as the problems as there are people who say one thing and do another. They are the ones that hold high and respectable positions. Further there is this whole 'family reputation' crap as opposed to daughter's wellbeing when it comes to the grooming of our daughters and sisters. That mentality has to go if we want to advance to do something about this problem. All in all, I think we should start at fixing the mentality of our people by first starting with ourselves and those around us. I believe our mentality is the reason of most problems.
  20. Not trying to be pessimistic but, if we look at it realistically, it is near impossible. The thing is everyone blames each other and ignore their own faults. I'm not trying to point fingers at anyone on this forum, rather I'm just saying that in general people turn a blind eye to their faults while blaming others for the same. That is where the problem starts. Cognitive dissonance and hypocrisy seem to be rather big issues, in general. I think the world would be a much better place, if instead of ridiculing eachother for faults, we focus on improving ourselves and encouraging eachother to do the same. I believe any solution is ineffective if we aren't willing to change ourselves, first, otherwise we are the biggest problem as we are doing exactly what we are opposing, this is hipocrisy and cognitive dissonance. Understanding and communication is also important among people. Further, people seem to have a rather messed up moral compass. I'm still trying to observe this behaviour. If someone is in a position of authority or in a position recognised as 'holy', people automatically assume that that person is indeed faultless. I think people tend to think in terms of black and white, they don't necessarily know what righteouness is. Righteouness is to oppose corrupt authority not to respect the same. Believe it or not, some people think that respecting authority even if they are corrupt, is morally right compared to opposing them. That is just one example among many that indicates people know not morals. It is indeed a crooked world we live in. All in all, what I wish to say is that people who are major partakers of a problem are often ignorant of their part in the same. They very frequently tend to ignore their own faults. The main thing would be to bring greater awareness on their impact on the problem. This is very hard. People will find it painful to see their own faults, it's like medicine, bitter and detestable but it is the solution. For example, if we take the bangra dancers or the booze gurglers into account, I doubt they will see much wrong with their actions. If they do, it is cognitive dissonance. Therefore, most problems stem from internal feuds or ego.
