    FOOD FOR THOUGHT:

    Life is a book in volumes three -
    The past, the present, and the yet-to-be.
    The past is written and laid away,
    The present we're writing every day,
    And the last and best of volumes three
    Is locked from sight - God keeps the key.

    Ten Thoughts to Live By

    Author Unknown


    1. Thou shalt not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.
    2. Thou shalt not be fearful, for most of the things we fear never come to pass.
    3. Thou shalt not cross bridges before you get to them, for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.
    4. Thou shalt face each problem as it comes. You can handle only one at a time anyway.
    5. Thou shalt not take problems to bed with you for they make very poor bedfellows.
    6. Thou shalt not borrow other people's problems. They can take better care of them than you can.
    7. Thou shalt not try to relive yesterday for good or ill — it is gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life today.
    8. Thou shalt count thy blessings, never overlooking the small ones, for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one.
    9. Thou shalt be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own. It is very hard to learn something new when you are talking.
    10. Thou shalt not become bogged down by frustration, for 90 percent of it is rooted in self-pity, and it will only interfere with positive action.

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!
