    I am oscillating madly between connections, and it is leaving me drained, and my poor wife completely unaware of who she is going to wake up next to in the morning.

    I seem to start the week on Monday getting reconnected, and this works well till about Thursday, when the rumblings of the wolf start to pierce my head, by Thursday evening, all I can hear in my head is howling, the smell of blood, the thrill of chasing a stray rabbit, it is not evil, merely satisfying the whims of the self, and I do, non stop, till Sunday.

    On the one hand, I am grateful that I can partition my life such, and get a glimpse of how life is with connection, on the other hand, I am getting too old to see myself as some youthful wolf, as a wolf, I crave the peace and contentment I have early in the week, as a man, I pity the almost hypnotic state I find myself in on Thursday. However, Thursdays, I have a spring in my step, a flush in my cheeks, I am alive, the tingle in my stomach, the smell of grass of mud, of earth,

    It is Monday, the sun is shining, the connection shimmies in front of me, eveloping me in its warm caress, giving me the peace my soul craves, I embrace it, like I do every Monday, it is like coming home.

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!
