How do you react when all of your dreams and your passion are shattered that you thought you were so close to achieving?

How do you get up when you have fallen so hard that it hurts to get back up again?

What do you do when you think that there is no way that you are going to be able to get back up?

How do you keep going and keep hoping?

Initially it's upsetting and hurts more than anything else. But if you don't get back up again, you will end up hurting more in the long run. It's a downwards spiral unless you try and stand again. You have to accept whatever has happened and find another way. And sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck, as the Dalai Lama says! It's mind over matter. Things seem so bad, but one day you will look back and realise that what you went through was worth becoming the resilient person you will be. You'll look back and think wow, that seems so insignificant to what I have done with the rest of my life. Remember life isn't supposed to be easy, nothing is handed to you on a plate. You fall down, sometimes you get pushed down, and the only person who can get you back up is yourself. Do an Ardas and ask Waheguru for strength to keep you going through these tough times. But it will get better eventually. Remember Waheguru has a plan for everyone, including you, otherwise you would not be sitting here right now. You have a choice, you can let it eat you up and destroy you, or you can take control of your mind and keep going. Good luck my friend.

a poem written by me 2 you (oh sister khalsa fateh ji to you!)

oh my sister i wish you love i wish you sucsess and my ardass is for you; you my sister are khalsa the shining roop of my mother the daughter of my father you my sister you are the greatest warrior the most fearless lioness, you my sister are a great scholar we have all seen this. you my sister are the princess you are the gurmukh. have you forgotten that god is within not without, you are devine within as we all are. meditate on the force of extacy that brings us from the darkness of life into all spiritual light and bliss.

khalsa fateh ji penji. rising up is what we all must do and the best way to do this is with the bani amritvela after all what dreams should we humans have they are just miya, the true dream is for akal purakh the true bnliss of the world.

oh penji, waheguruji is the jahaj that vessel that flyes us over the world ocean of life by our selves we are foolish if we think we can swim it without the guru and akaal purakh without the five virtues;


Sat is the virtue of truthful living, which means practising "righteousness, honesty, justice, impartiality and fair play."

The Lord's humble servants are True — they practice Truth, and reflect upon the Word of the Guru's Shabad. The True Lord God unites them with Himself, and they keep the True Lord enshrined in their hearts. O Nanak, through the Name, I have obtained salvation and understanding; this alone is my wealth.— Guru Granth Sahib, page 600


Santokh, or contentment, is freedom "from ambition, envy, greed and jealousy. Without contentment, it is impossible to acquire peace of mind."

Practice truth, contentment and kindness; this is the most excellent way of life. One who is so blessed by the Formless Lord God renounces selfishness, and becomes the dust of all.— Guru Granth Sahib, ang 51


The exercise of Daya, or compassion, involves "considering another's difficulty or sorrow as one's own and helping to relieve it as far as possible. Compassion also includes the overlooking of imperfections and mistakes of others, for to err is human."

Be kind to all beings-this is more meritorious than bathing at the sixty-eight sacred shrines of pilgrimage and the giving of charity.— Guru Granth Sahib, ang 136


Nimrata, translated as "humility", "benevolence" or "humbleness", is the fourth virtue.

The God-conscious being is steeped in humility.— Guru Granth Sahib, page 273


Pyar requires Sikhs to be filled with the love of God.

Let the Fear of God be your feet, and let His Love be your hands; let His Understanding be your eyes.— Guru Granth Sahib,ang 139
