    A story tells that two friends were walking
    through the desert. During some
    point of the journey they had an argument, and
    one friend slapped the other one in the face.



    The one who got slapped was hurt,
    but without saying anything, wrote in the sand:

    TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
    SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.



    They kept on walking until they found an oasis,
    where they decided to take a bath. The one who
    had been slapped got stuck in the mire and
    started drowning, but the friend saved him.
    After he recovered from the near
    drowning, he wrote on a stone:

    TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE.


    The friend who had slapped and
    saved his best friend asked him,
    "After I hurt you, you wrote in the
    sand and now, you write on a stone,
    why?" The other friend replied "When someone
    hurts us we should write it down in sand where winds
    of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone
    does something good for us, we must engrave
    it in stone where no wind can ever erase it."

    LEARN TO WRITE YOUR HURTS IN THE SAND
    AND TO CARVE YOUR BENEFITS IN STONE.


    They say it takes a minute to find a special person,
    an hour to appreciate them,
    a day to love them,
    but then an entire life to forget them..

    Do not value the THINGS you have in your life..
    But value WHO you have in your life!

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!
