    Life reflects back

    Though you cannot control the actions of others, you can have a significant influence on how they act toward you. Set a positive tone, and the people around you will pick up on it.

    Be respectful, and you will in turn be respected. Be honest, be truthful, and you greatly increase the likelihood that you will be told the truth by others.

    Offer a smile each chance you get, and you'll receive more smiles in return. Project a pleasant, helpful attitude, and that is the attitude with which you'll often be met.

    Genuinely expect the best of others, and they will do all they can to live up to your expectations. Listen with interest and attention, seek to truly understand, and what you say will be much better understood.

    Give meaningful value, and you'll receive real value in return. Offer your honest opinion, and others will be more upfront with you.

    The world is a much more beautiful place when you choose to be beautiful yourself. Go out of your way to shine a positive light, and you'll like what life reflects back at you.

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!
