    Your Hijackers !

    At international airports today, every effort is made to eliminate dangerous traveling companions: you and I have to make the same careful inquiries where powerful emotions are concerned. The fellow behind dark glasses, with the folded newspaper under his arm – look out! Interpol has a fat file on him. Don’t take him with you! The most ruthless hijackers can’t hold us hostage more effectively than our own passions – anger, fear, and lust – when they take over our lives.

    You can gradually learn to “dis-identify” yourself from powerful negative emotions that can turn on you. Once you can pull back from anger or greed and say, “That’s not really me,” you’ve as good as snatched the hijacker’s weapon right out of his hands. Through the practice of meditation, you can begin to choose the thoughts and passions you wish to have as companions on your journey through 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!
