    Positive Thinking -the right and wrong kind

    "There are many people, who when they come in contact with God, with Absolute Truth, with the Spirit World, believe that this experience the certainty of all this - can come to them by some staggering "proof" which they expect to receive personally. But, my friends, it cannot happen this way. When you desire this kind of "proof", you think that through this you can eliminate your doubts. These doubts, are, in themselves, understandable enough.

    [size=-1]Doubt is the opposite of faith; and faith, my friends, is in reality nothing else than the experience, the certainty of all that you may doubt presently: It is the inner experience.

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!
