    Why can't I be what I want?

    Ah wonderful, enjoy the experience, I remember my youth well, in those days I wore a turban too, they were the most innocent and uncomplicated of times. Ah well, cap or turban, at that age at least you are still living innocently and without complications Oh, course you do, its because a cap...

    I am no scholar, I can barely ready Punjabi, but everytime I have heard the word 'har' in every context I have heard it, it always seems to mean everything to me, or all the time, I have always taken its meaning to be all inclusive, every all,

    Hard Talk Sikhi versus Khalsa

    Please clarify 'one message' too little and too much, I think an entire shabad is adequate personally. could you please reference "Do-ay kar jodh maango ik daana", thank you of course, and it is no different for you, yours is also just an opinion. We are different people, I accept whatever...

    Hard Talk Sikhi versus Khalsa

    sure it is, you have to first define Sikh, who is a Sikh? the one that does not eat meat? the one that believes in reincarnation? the one that spends a fortune on his daughters wedding and ensures it is to the same caste? This is impossible and hugely dangerous, The SGGS was never meant to be...

    Hard Talk Sikhi versus Khalsa

    Nuanced differences does not cover the enormous chasm between outlooks and opinions in Sikhism. Should we eat meat?, are we going to be reborn? is God going to change the very fabric of life because of an Ardass?, these are just a few of the many questions that divide us. What we do know is...

    Hard Talk Sikhi versus Khalsa

    but it is not all or nothing, how many of those that follow the tenets are following badly translated or badly understood aspects of Sikhism? Sikhism should be a journey that is free and open to everyone to proceed at their own pace and understanding. Being in possession of all 5 K's is no...

    Diwali Di Raat Diwey Ballian. Diwali And Sikhism ?

    why does that statement send a chill down my spine? People embrace Sikhism out of choice, follow the Bani out of choice, because they wish tio do so, for everyone else, free choice and free will stands. Understanding, rather than strict prohibitions, is what makes Sikhism different

    The Science Of Happiness: Why Complaining Is Literally Killing You

    I think if one thinks too deeply about in effect, rewiring your brain, one needs to be prepared for the consequences, my brain has been wired by my life, my actions, my thoughts, and as such, it is me, ready to react at many of the situations I get myself into. If I were to tamper with its...

    Akhand Paath: Ritual Or Spiritual?

    I have a better idea, everyone meets up at the house in question, read Mool Mantra, and then everyone leaves the house with the idea of interacting with as many people as possible and displaying the facets of Creator as stated. When everyone returns several hours later, everyone cooks a big...

    What Do You Visualize When You Think Of Ik▫oaʼnkār ੴ

    What is leading a truthful life? avoiding lies? or living lies to expose them and understand them fully? If you have never lived, how can you truly die? If we put 'do not cross' barriers along all the parts of life that we perceive as bad, or lies, or destructive, then we cut out a rich seam of...
