    Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others including Love.

    However, one day it was announced to the couples that the island would sink, so all prepared their boats and left. Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to stay until it started sinking. When Love was almost sinking, he decided to ask for help.

    Richness was passing by Love in a beautiful boat. Love said, "Richness, can you take me with you?" Richness answered, "No, I can't.. There are a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you."

    Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by, "Vanity, please help me!" "I can't help you Love. You are all wet and can probably damage my boat," Vanity answered.

    Sadness was close by so Love asked for help, "Sadness, let me go with you." "Oh . . . Love, I am so sad that I prefer to go alone!"

    Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that she did not listen when Love called her! Suddenly, there was a voice, "Come Love, I will take you." It was an elder. Love became very happy that he even forgot to ask the name of the elder.

    When they arrived to the other side, Love asked Knowledge who was the elderly.

    "It was Time."

    "Time? But why did Time help me?"

    "Because only Time is capable of understanding how great Love is."

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!
