    So, I know what it feels like to be content, I have felt content since Tuesday just gone, on Tuesday, I realised that I , and I alone are responsible for my happiness, and thats it. Seems like such a simple concept, and a very obvious one, but until you truly really grasp it and understand it, and more importantly feel it, you cannot use that concept to see your needs and desires for what they are, yours,.

    Contentment feels great, you still have problems, and unfulfilled desires, contentment just gives you the clear head to deal with your problems, and puts your desires into perspective with your problems and filters our what is important and urgent, and what is fun.

    Contentment means that others cannot hurt or frustrate you, they can touch you, for sure, but if you concentrate on all the goodness in a person, and ignore the flaws, most people come out pretty well.

    There will always be those that are needy, dependent, suffocating, education is the key here, but its hard, and its time consuming, and personally, I would cut free now, rather be dragged down by a drowning person, this type of martyrdom does not interest me any longer.

    So, it seems that having found contentment,the next step would be enlightenment, the feeling of being at one with the god, it has taken 42 years to find what contentment is, and a very short time after that to realise it, I guess I actually have no idea what enlightenment actually is, so at this rate, I suppose I will find union with God around the age of 94

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!
