    My attempt at a no lust week failed miserably, I have to concede that I am a better man without lust, and it so hard to control it, I can understand why one would want to destroy it completely, but then destruction is easier than understanding, understanding and discipline are hard, in fact the complete lack of any discipline this week,both in action, and mentally, has left me feeling quite sorry for myself, I have contemplated leaning towards mysticism to fill the void, but the more I explore mysticism, the more I shy away from it, the whole point of mysticism is that it cannot be understood or explained, it just happens, and that is not good enough for me, maybe its a lack of faith, but then what good is faith without understanding, that is more of an Abrahamic thing I think, after all the Abrahamic God requires a lot, whilst the creator requires nothing, but in my view, gives nothing, the Abrahamic God promises a lot, in exchange for complete obedience, Creator promises nothing other than the chance to learn, Islam has 70 odd virgins, there just isnt a prize in Sikhism for understanding, it is the understanding that is the prize,

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!
