    As a book that both described me and helped me, and also helped destroy me, this book is very good, it has taken me far in life, but reading the Shabad of the day, I wonder whether it is time to welcome the influence it has had on my life, on my thoughts, and maybe move on, the wolf man analogy works, but only up to a point,

    I identify more with the elephant than the wolf, I can see the drunken elephant in my head, yeah it works better than a wolf, stomping about hellbent on self destruction, to gain pleasure at any cost, even whilst crocodiles chew your legs, elephants, hmmmmm elephants, I have to embrace this, as it is an automatic conclusion that if I look to how to deal with the elephant problem in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, then my thinking must mature and invariably become more Sikh.

    Steppenwolf RIP

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!
