    The last 3 or 4 weeks, I have wanted answers to questions I never thought would be answered, and I seem to have found answers, not definitive answers, but certainly answers that make a reasonable amount of sense, what do the first 10 lines of japji Sahib actually mean, and how can you gain strength and wisdom from them, how can they help you be a better person, I have come to the conclusion, uhm I cannot believe it, I seem to have left one out, <slapping head> oh well this bit will have to wait till I have competed the missing line,

    Moving on to why the hell am I here, Death will come, as it comes to everyone, my wife has warned me not to discuss three things with people that come in the shop, as she worries I will get punched in the face, however I cannot seem to stop discussing religion, politics and sex with every single person that comes in, every person that has come in and stated they believe in god, not one has accepted that life stops at death, I wonder whether the promise of eternal life is what swung them, to me, the meaning of life is simply to make the world a better place for your presence, and to be the best person you could have been. The use of the words better, and best are hugely subjective, is the world a better place if all the women wore mini skirts, well not to me, would the world be a better place if my wife constantly wore mini skirts, yes! so, even personal subjectivity is subjective!

    The question next is how do you know what is best, better, what should you aim for in making this world better, well I think that is encapsulated in the first 10 lines of Japji Sahib, which I cannot now comment on because I am missing a line,

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!
