2020-01-27 21:06:37 -0600 answered a question Why do Sikh Guru Pictures are like this ?

ਜਿਸੁ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਰਾਖੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਨਾਹੀ ਦੂਖ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਤ ਮਨਿ ਹੋਵਤ ਸੂਖ ॥ ਚਿੰਤਾ ਜਾਇ ਮਿਟੈ ਅਹੰਕਾਰੁ ॥ ਤਿਸੁ ਜਨ ਕਉ ਕੋਇ ਨ ਪਹੁਚਨਹਾਰੁ ॥ ਸਿਰ ਊਪਰਿ ਠਾਢਾ ਗੁਰੁ ਸੂਰਾ ॥ ਨਾਨਕ ਤਾ ਕੇ ਕਾਰਜ ਪੂਰਾ ॥

radiant halo behind their head, means the ones who are connected with nature their mind isn’t affected by grief even if their life is full of grief, Whenever they remember their creator happiness is produced in their mind, worry anxiety and arrogant pride dies. That person’s happiness cannot be compared even to the most richest man. He has illuminating sun that provides cool shade every time on his mind. Nanak: whatever he puts effort in becomes successful.

2020-01-27 13:19:29 -0600 asked a question Why can't I just back to a normal life ?

If I don't listen to Kirtan once in 5 hours my head start hurting like a hangover, and I feel very depressed.

I don't care about money, but my family has started thinking that I have gone mental :D

How do I go back to my normal life ? I once tried drinking with group of friends but when i was drunk my mind haunts me that these idiots are just wasting life/time and money on showing off

Why can't and how can I just be like I was before I started doing paath?

I mean I keep thinking subconsciously that people are lying to themselves and keep themselves busy is dumb stuff just because they are afraid of death.

ਰਹਹਿ ਇਕਾਂਤਿ ਏਕੋ ਮਨਿ ਵਸਿਆ ਆਸਾ ਮਾਹਿ ਨਿਰਾਸੋ ॥ ਅਗਮੁ ਅਗੋਚਰੁ ਦੇਖਿ ਦਿਖਾਏ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਤਾ ਕਾ ਦਾਸੋ ॥

2020-01-24 13:50:14 -0600 asked a question What is meant by illusion in Gurbani ?

" Time and space are not conditions in which we live, but modes by which we think." - Albert Einstein

Does this mean that we really don't physically live in time and space, but we perceive it the smaller the thing is the faster is perceives time e.g. some flies have life span of one day, the bigger the thing is the slower time is for it e.g. sun has life span of billion years. Space is infinite, even if we reach the end of the universe we will discover its 10 times more bigger because it's something we sense. Just like a person in a dream senses it as a reality the mind senses whatever the eyes tell it as reality.

Is this the illusion (Brahm) gurbani talks about ?

What I mean is when an adult looks at a homeless and disabled person from his car at first there is a voice from within ( which is only 20% loud) that tells him to donate a little to him.

sabh ko pooraa aapay hovai ghat na ko-ee aakhai. Everyone calls himself perfect; none call themselves imperfect.

pat parvaanaa pichhai paa-ee-ai taa naanak toli-aa jaapai. ||2|| If the weight of command is placed on the scale, then, O Nanak, one sees his true weight. ||2||

Obviously we all know that we don't point mistakes in others, unless we give them advice against harm.

Does this mean that a person who thinks that a person who does the right things all the time is actually blinded by it and starts living in his own illusion ?

2020-01-24 09:48:20 -0600 asked a question How can we say that Karma is real ?

How can someone prove that Karma is real ?

Sometimes bad things happen to us , sometimes good things

If life is like a movie; then some are given the role of heroes some are given the roles of villains as a movie is useless without either. then technically no one is really good or bad or does good or bad Karma, he just does the things he is made to do.
