    Someone wrote me using a peace symbol peacesign to represent the number two peacesign. It just occurred to me that this is actually a second definition of peace. We can sort of say that one way to achieve peace is to agree on mutual respect, empathy, consideration, tolerance (I could go on and on, you get the idea) even within diverse or opposing opinions. Once we seek to respect two opinions vs. clinging to our own, we become true vessels for peace to be poured into. Ya Salaamu!

    Thank you to the person who wrote me, expressing the peace sign this way has changed my understanding of peace signs forever.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
