if you knew anything about me, then you would know that I am not a sikh, I am a, atheist who does not which to identify to a particular religion. My beard is NOT my identity, it is an article of faith to a religion I don’t believe in yet I am forced to practice,
So instead I maintain the pretense of being a sikh,
I doubt it will, gurbani is boring and I find the history of the world much more interesting than the events that took place 400 years ago in a small corner of india.
I do make my decisions I decided I’d pretend to be someone i'm not to keep others happy, that’s my decision.
I guess that’s where you and I differ. I don’t believe in the divine. I don’t keep my beard just because some leader told me to 300 years ago.
I haven't reieved any gifts from any gurus, the gurus are dead they dont have infinite love if they died.
have merits, there is no need to this hyperbole of overstating your short comings. Such over the top statements of innadequecy remind me of how early Christians used to punish themselves in order to be closer to god.
I would rather love my children and spouse than an invisible man I can’t see, a book that wont talk to me and 10 guys that are long dead. Love for one’s family keeps the world turning. If everyone abandoned their family for god then civilisation would end
Where is the path of the sangat? I'm reading gurbani, but i'm just focusing on japji. Is there a map and a compass on the next page?
My discussion with you ends here, due to the above.The previous line of gurbani practically comdemned loving your family, theres nothing else, I might aswell just drink bleach.
I have so many questions for this so called Guru but it wont talk back to me... because it's just a book. I wish there was a human guru that i could talk to, that we could question,
Sikhs, and indeed anyone who has studied even a little bit of Gurbani, will understand why. You will not.
Despite your grievously hurtful, ignorant and insulting statements, I sincerely hope that Guru Sahib has mercy upon you. For you know not what you speak. You are blind.
This is a forum on Sikh philosophy, not a place to go pandering your personal family issues. If all you want to do is cut your hair and shave your beard, but you're scared of your parents and family, there is no point in coming here and showcasing your cowardice to the world. Be a man (yes, a real man), and have the guts to be your real self in front of your family. I do feel sorry for your poor parents, though. It sounds like they just want the best for you.
Goodbye Mr. Pink Shirt Big Hat.
