    Silence is power. Honest silence, that is. Don't ever use
    silence as a weapon -- that's violence. Be aware of the

    But, staying silent in the face of false accusations or
    someone else's poorly expressed outrage can be powerful.
    It can be self-care. Life is noisy. We don't have to answer
    everything. Sometimes it is our silence and our lack of
    response that can make our limits clear.

    When those close to us hurt us or disappoint us
    communication can be key. But the more distant someone
    is from your "inner circle" or intimate friends the less effort
    they truly deserve in response to accusations, gossip, or

    People talk behind our backs. Gossip is best met with
    an indifferent silence. If you run your own race in life,
    there will be no need to defend yourself.

    Be strong. Be courageous. Stick to your plan no matter

    Remember what peace there is in appropriate silence.

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!
