    The New Year Commandments


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

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!
