    Carve it in Stone

    Two friends were walking through the desert.During some
    point of the journey, they had an argument; and one
    friend slapped the other one in the face.

    The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying
    anything, wrote in the sand: "Today my best friend
    slapped me in the face."

    They kept on walking until they found an oasis. There,
    they decided to take a bath. The one who had been
    slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning,
    but the friend saved him.

    After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on
    a stone: "Today my best friend saved my life ".

    The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend
    asked him, "After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and
    now, you write on a stone, why?"

    The friend replied, "When someone hurts us, we should
    write it down in sand, where winds of forgiveness can
    erase it away. But, when someone does something good
    for us, we must carve it in stone! In stone, no wind
    can erase it."

    Always write your hurts in the sand... carve your
    benefits (Blessings ) in stone.

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!
