Yes, your souls are bound together beyond a single lifetime. Time between lifetimes does not run by any clock.

2018-12-17 10:17:45 -0600 commented answer Is this the end?

Please don't waste your energy by feeling guilty. Each day is fresh and new with no mistakes in it. Begin fresh each day.

2018-12-14 09:45:09 -0600 answered a question Is this the end?

Wow, what a story... a story of faith, survival and devotion. Bhenji, you are a very blessed woman. You have gone through the karmas and never avoided payment but rather kept hold of Guruji's hem and went through the fire.

The strongest steel goes through the hottest fire. You have been prepared and cleansed in Guruji's classroom where you have taken the hard lessons with grace under fire. Now it is time for a new chapter in your life. Anchor your day in your Amrit Vela sadhana and stay close to your breath. Waheguru is with you in every moment.

2018-12-12 10:18:01 -0600 answered a question I am an amritdhari singh and getting married to non amritdhari sikh girl

This must all be discussed openly with your fiancee before marriage. You must jointly decide what you wish to do. If it is not mutual then disaster for the marriage looms on the horizon.

2018-12-11 15:10:42 -0600 commented answer Lost faith , I need sone guidance

What a blessing to be able to get this sorted with your wife before she left her physical body! _/\_

2018-12-11 15:08:54 -0600 commented answer What is "Sopurkh" shabad paath for?

If you wish, but it is better to visualize him in your mind, not as he appears in any photo, but in his soul nature - radiant, happy, healthy, surrounded by golden light. Visualize him at his highest potential. This is more powerful than any photo.

2018-12-11 15:07:19 -0600 commented answer When we make "sukhnaa", do we fullfill it after it's granted? How's it usually done, like if anyone else has done it? Bhai Makhan Shah Lubana did during Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji time.

Read my reply again _/\_ I assumed you had made it. If you simply standby and remain alert, Guruji will show you how to complete this.

2018-12-10 12:21:08 -0600 commented answer Is getting up at 12:00 AM midnight and doing "Ishnaan" and starting nitnem around 12:30AM, is that Amrit vela too? or it is 3AM-6:AM (last pehr of the night)?

BTW, why did you put the word Ishnaan in quotes?

2018-12-10 12:12:22 -0600 answered a question Is 30 mins of Simran enough to grow spiritually- daily in the mornings without Nitnem?

No one can tell another what is sufficient for that person. Your mom feels responsible for you and is focused on your academic performance. Your daily sadhana is always first priority, but you still have to perform in the "material world" and be excellent. Both are required. If that means going to bed earlier and getting up before your mom, then that is what you do. Don't lie to her. Be loving, firm, smiling and kind. Speak gently with sweetness and then follow through. Don't try to manipulate your home situation or argue with your mom. The trick of life is to find out who you really are, not who others want you to be, and then purposefully be that with joy.

2018-12-10 12:01:41 -0600 answered a question What exactly would be considered "Gur Seva" serving the Guru? How can we do do Guru ki seva nowadays?

Let everything you do be Guru ki Seva.

After all, since you belong to Guruji, it's all being done in His service. Even the simplest things like brushing your teeth can be experienced as seva to your teeth so that you shine brighter. Living in this way, when people see you, they see Guruji through your radiance and presence.

It's about your state of mind. If you are not serving your own ego then who are you serving? As Guruji's banda, you are serving God in all, no exceptions.

2018-12-10 11:54:11 -0600 answered a question Question about the nature of language and the system of things as we know it.

The way you find peace in the midst of this is to tame your own mind. You already see, but there cannot be peace if your mind becomes absorbed in these things or preoccupied with them.

Peace comes from Naam Simran in the midst of it all. Remembering that it is all a game and keeping your mind centered on enjoying the "greatest show on earth" and playing your own part joyfully will keep you in Chardi Kala.

2018-12-10 10:54:24 -0600 answered a question Is getting up at 12:00 AM midnight and doing "Ishnaan" and starting nitnem around 12:30AM, is that Amrit vela too? or it is 3AM-6:AM (last pehr of the night)?

Amrit Vela begins when the sun is 30 degrees below the horizon and ends when the sun rises, so last pehr of the night is correct. Rise in the Amrit Vela doesn't mean stay up all night. It means rise early, before the sun. This time of day is the clearest, sweetest, most powerful time of the day to do your daily sadhana.

2018-12-10 10:33:11 -0600 answered a question Jo Jan Loojhehi Manai Sio Sae Soorae Paradhhaanaa ||

Guru jI means that this work of conquering your own mind and not letting it lead you, but rather serve you, is the ultimate battle of merit in this lifetime.

2018-12-05 12:46:47 -0600 answered a question How to recognize God's voice?

Ishpreet Ji - What a great question! Everyone has voices in their head: Your mom's voice, the voice of your own conscience, etc. Prayer is talking to God. Meditation is listening to God. When you deepen your listening, you go beyond the mental. conceptual realm. When you establish regular meditation/japa/paath then you gain depth and the ability to sort out your own mental processes from Direct Divine Guidance. In sum, if you don't know, then there's no indicator to point out. When you know, there's no doubt.

"Such is the Nam. It makes you pure. If you surrender, your mind becomes sure." (Japji Sahib Pauri 12-15)

2018-12-04 10:22:22 -0600 answered a question Is this a God ordained relationship?

You say "we just connect so deeply I really have no words for this connection..." and "He help me grew in many aspects, because of him i am more closer to god." These indicate that there is a soul-to-soul relationship here. This bodes extremely well for marriage. It's time to be up front about your feelings with this fellow. Walk and talk together and gracefully start discussing the possibilities. Just be honest. Then bring this discussion to your parents and tell them. Let things unfold naturally.

2018-12-04 10:10:38 -0600 answered a question Vin bolya sab kich janda..

Sarbat da Balla. - We do ardas to focus blessing energy on those who need peace, support and healing. For ourselves, we pray for Naam.

2018-11-30 10:59:38 -0600 answered a question If someone did us bad and Karma takes care of everything, then we wouldn't need "Court", law and order in society?

Laws are rules that bind all people living in a community. Originally they stemmed from Natural Law - "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you." Laws protect our general safety, and ensure our rights as citizens against abuses by other people, by organizations, and by the government itself. We have laws to help provide for our general safety.

Now what you say is true; everything is self-balancing. But the issue most human beings have with that is that it's about souls. We have 8.4 million incarnations of which the last ~84,000 are human incarnations. Most people want to "see justice done" within one lifetime.

The soul accumulates karmas and then must continue to incarnate until the karmas are paid, lifetime after lifetime.

Laws and courts come from wanting everything to resolve in a short time-span and the common desire for civilized behavior. Ever read "Lord of the Flies?" That's the modern world without laws.

As the human race wakes up and people begin to act righteously spontaneously from natural wisdom, laws will be less and less needed.

2018-11-30 10:38:48 -0600 answered a question Jin prem kio tin hee prabh paayo...

Why do people misunderstand anything? Usually because the misunderstanding serves their ego games in some way, most often by rationalizing a course of action taken in ego. This shabad is about total surrender to God, nothing else.

2018-11-30 10:35:32 -0600 answered a question Why did Weheguru take my wife away from me ?

Most heartfelt love and blessings to you. This is a hard one. There is no why. The number of breaths is written for each of us and everyone dies at the exact time allotted.

So many tears. The grief is acute. Rajwinder is inside you. when you meditate, you can connect to her.

2018-11-29 11:55:54 -0600 answered a question Does god take away naam?

No, God does not take away Naam. This is an internal process in the daily wrestling match with your own mind. No matter how much paath you do, go deep and understand the meaning of what Guru Ji is saying in your own life. Just keep up and do what you do. Sometimes it is a struggle and sometimes it flows. Just keep going. There is no blame and no punishment, simply the unfolding of the opportunities to pay the karmas that brought you into this incarnation.

2018-11-29 11:32:42 -0600 answered a question If we do paath around 8:30AM-9:00 AM, it's not "Amrit Vela", but do we get same benefits?

Benefits come from focus and committment. If you develop the daily habit, there is no problem. Amrit Vela is the easiest time to meditate, before all the etheric noise of the day. In that ambrosial, clear, sweet time one can go deeply more easily. That said, keep up what you are doing and let it unfold. Your practice shall not be the same at all times of your life. It changes according to need.

2018-11-29 11:28:16 -0600 answered a question When you do paath when married, does it help both husband and wife?

Marriage is a state in which the consciousness, karmas and lineage become blended. Paath and meditation done by either partner with a loving and soft heart will affect not only one's spouse, but seven generations forwards and back in your lineage.

2018-11-28 12:37:22 -0600 commented answer Worried all the time

No. Humping a pillow, or other forms of masturbation, cannot get you pregnant.

2018-11-28 12:35:26 -0600 answered a question When we make "sukhnaa", do we fullfill it after it's granted? How's it usually done, like if anyone else has done it? Bhai Makhan Shah Lubana did during Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji time.

Remember that you cannot bargain with Guru Ji. You have made a promise with your own higher consciousness. Stand by and let things unfold. You will know when It's time to act.

2018-11-28 12:34:05 -0600 commented answer Can we recite "Mool mantar" while laying in bed?

Yes, it definitely helps resolve issues even if partner is not open to communication. It works beyond the mental, intellectual plane. As you recite, visualise him surrounded by golden light. See his "child" self. Meditate on the part of him that is innocent.

2018-11-28 12:29:40 -0600 commented answer What is "Sopurkh" shabad paath for?

Yes, if there is a bond between the souls, daily Sopurkhs will help him experience his soul and potential. For family, best is ardas for the karmas to be paid as gracefully as possible with Guru Ji's kirpa.

2018-11-28 12:27:03 -0600 answered a question Should we be making plans?

Make plans, but do not be attached to those plans nor to their outcomes. Plan as your intuition tells you to do, but let go lightly when the time requires it.

2018-11-26 16:19:51 -0600 answered a question What is "Sopurkh" shabad paath for?

It is the very beginning of the Rehiras Sahib: "Sopurkh Nirinjan, Harpurph Nirinjan Here is a link to a lovely, simple recitation by Nirinjan Kaur.

Sopurkh was given by Guru Ram Das to women as a way of helping them raise the vibration of the men in their lives by relating to their highest potential, their soul and their destiny, rather than their ego.

A woman can recite Sopurkh for a particular man in her life, such as her husband, to help him live up to his full potential; or she can recite it to attract her perfect mate if she has not met him yet. Sopurkh, if recited for a minimum of 11 times a day for 40 straight days, is said to manifest Godliness in physical male form before the eyes of a woman.

2018-11-26 10:28:04 -0600 answered a question Worried all the time

Gosh, dear one, you've posted here so many times regarding your anxiety about getting pregnant. I don't believe the real issue is pillows or humping or periods or sperm or any of those things. The real issue is the deep, haunting fear and anxiety that has been implanted in you. My prayer is that you find a calm, experienced, responsible adult to talk with about this and that you engage in deep, honest, open discussion about your fears.

2018-11-26 10:20:48 -0600 answered a question Can we recite "Mool mantar" while laying in bed?

It is about your state of mind. If your mind is relaxed, receptive and focused then you can recite Mool Mantra anywhere, any time.

2018-11-19 12:32:03 -0600 answered a question seeing disgust in everyone including myself

I understand what you are describing. Disgust and revulsion at disease,decay, rotting and dead things. The whole process of corruption, disease, decay and dissolution is part of the life cycle. Your feelings have a deeper root: fear of death.

Birth-Life-Death-Rebirth-Life-Death, etc, etc.

We have been through many, many lifetimes. Everything comes from the One and everything dissolves back into the One. "This call comes to all homes. Such calls come every day. Meditate on the One who calls. O Nanak, the day draws near!" (Kirtan Sohila.)

As you confront your own mortality you will begin to see that the decay is just as beautiful in its own way as the growth; death is just as beautiful as birth (if not more so) and that all things dissolve and fall apart. It's just how the creation works. All forms are temporary. Everything is constantly dying and everything is constantly being born.

So I invite you to exploe your own relationship with death beyond your reaction to what you see.

2018-11-13 16:44:01 -0600 answered a question I want to change for the better

First of all, this is normal. Your parents will not understand you or your emotions. Your parents are who they are. Love them and be graceful to them but don't expect them to understand. You are you and the only leverage you have is working on yourself to develop your own discipline and establishing a daily spiritual practice. If you put the energy you now put into being frustrated into working on yourself and exploring who you really are, the rewards will be great

Whoa... take a deep breath. OK... it's about going back to school? Since you want to go back, you need tutoring. Ask for help and get your grades back up. Go to your school counselor and tell her/him you need tutoring and help with concentrating. No shame at all in asking for help.

2018-11-02 10:51:44 -0600 answered a question Is every hym of Bhagat Ravidas Ji is included in Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji?

Yes, Bhagat's compositions chosen by Guru Arjan Dev Ji were also included in Adi Granth. Reference here.

2018-10-31 10:45:10 -0600 answered a question How to let go of the past

Option two. Ignore it and don't allow it to continue to consume you. People will think whatever they think and they will say whatever they say. Trust them to do exactly what they do. Just keep moving forwards with kindness, compassion, courage and joy.
