GOD?

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair and his beard cut as

always.

He started to have a good conversation with the barber who attended

him.

They talked about so many things and various subjects. Suddenly,

they touched the subject of God.

The barber said: "Look man, I don't believe that God exists as you say so."

Why do you say that?" - asked the client.

Well, it's so easy; you just have to go out in the street to

realize that God does not exist. Oh, tell me, if God existed, would there be so

many sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would

be neither suffering nor pain. I can't think of a God who permits all of these things."

The client stopped for a moment thinking but he didn't want to respond so

as to prevent an argument. The barber finished his job and the client went out of the shop. Just after he left the barber shop he saw a man in the street with a long hair and beard (it seems that it had been a long

time since he had his cut and he looked so untidy).

Then the client again entered the barbershop and he said to the barber:

You know what? Barbers do not exist."

"How come they don't exist?" - asked the barber. "Well I am here and I am a barber."

"No!" - the client exclaimed. "They don't exist because if they did there

would be no people with long hair and beard like that man who walks in the street."

"Ah!...barbers do exist! What happens is that people do not come to me."

"Exactly!" - affirmed the client. "That's the point. God does exist, what happens is people don't go to Him and do not look for Him that's

why there's so much pain and suffering in the world."

aakhaa jeevaa visrai mar jaa-o.

Chanting it, I live; forgetting it, I die.

aakhan a-ukhaa saachaa naa-o.

It is so difficult to chant the True Name.

its an analogy, if one does not seek the Barber, how will he remove his hair. If one does not seek God how will he know if he exists or receive the blissfullness.

In the Analogy Hair is used as an Example. Same can be said about a Car Dealership. A man who is riding his broken bike or walking should not exist because why would god let him walk or give him a broken bike. Well if the man never searches for a car dealership how is that the fault of Car Dealership.

God exists but you need a set of eyes to see him, you need to waste energy in search for him, you need to venture out to seek him. Those that seek him, reach him.

hope that made some sense...

Funny how ten dollars looks so big when we take it to Gurdwara,

But so small when we take it to the store.

Funny how long 60 minutes is when we are serving langer,

But how short when shopping, playing golf, or watching TV.

Funny how laborious it is to read a chapter in the history books,

But how easy it is to read 200-300 pages of a best selling novel.

Funny how we believe what a person or newspaper says,

But question what the Guru Granth Sahib say.

Funny how we can't think of anything to say when we pray,

But don't have any difficulty thinking of things to gossip about.

Funny how we need 2 or 3 weeks to fit a prayer even into our schedule,

But have no problems adjusting for a social event at the last minute.

Funny how we get thrilled when a football game runs overtime,

But complain when a kirtan is longer than usual.

Funny how people scramble to get a front seat at a sporting event,

But scramble to get a back row at the Gurdwara

Funny how difficult it is to share Gods' words with others,

But how simple it is to spread rumours.

The Humble Sikhi

One big company was hiring new staff, the question of the written exam is:

you are driving a car on one big storm night, you are passing a station, there are three people who are waiting for the bus; one old lady who is dying, one doctor who saved your life before, one guy/lady who is someone you have been dreaming to be with. You can only take one passenger, which one you will choose?

Please explain your reason.

Think about it before you read the following

I am not sure whether it is some kind of personality test, since every answer has its reason. One lady is going to die, you should save her first, however, one people always end up dying anyway, you should take the doctor, because the doctor saved my life before, this is the perfect chance to pay him back. At the same time, some people believe that you can always pay the doctor back in the future, but you may never be able to find the perfect lover once you pass this chance.

What do you think? A great answer, right?

Within the two hundred candidates, the one who has been hired did not explain his answer, he only simply stated that " give the car key to the doctor, let the doctor take the old lady to the hospital and I stay to wait for the bus with the lady of my dream!"

I always tell my friends this story as a joke, and I realize that everyone I know think the above answer is the best answer, but there is no one (including myself) can think of this answer first. Is that because we never want to give up any advantage we held in our hands (the car key)? Sometimes, we would gain more if we were able to give up our stubborn, limitation, and advantage.

Exactly The is the spirit of Sikhi TO GIVE
