The only investment that will always be safe and will yield profit forever is to feed a hungry saint.

Rest all is futile, even Bill Gates will leave all his money here.

2019-11-29 10:25:11 -0600 answered a question God help... I’m so screwed

You don't feel pain if some unknown is screwed

You feel a little pain if someone little close to you is screwed

You feel a lot of pain if someone a very dear to is screwed

You are devastated by pain if you yourself are screwed

Only if you think very deeply on this you will understand that people are getting screwed everyday and everywhere. But it only hurts when you attach the "I" to it the more closer something is to "I" the more pain it will cause. You cannot stop screwness but you can stop the "I" and not be in pain.

According to a woman I have met,

2019-11-18 19:25:49 -0600 answered a question Sikh prayer for husbands long life please

Neither does a human come to life with his will, Neither does he leave with his will.

Instead of thinking about your husband's death you should think how you can better enjoy life with him till he is still alive.

Dying Suhagan or not is not in your hands, so worrying about it is futile, enjoying life while you have it is in your hand, you can control it.

ਬੁਢਾ ਹੋਆ ਸੇਖ ਫਰੀਦੁ ਕੰਬਣਿ ਲਗੀ ਦੇਹ ॥ ਜੇ ਸਉ ਵਰ੍ਹ੍ਹਿਆ ਜੀਵਣਾ ਭੀ ਤਨੁ ਹੋਸੀ ਖੇਹ ॥੪੧॥

Now that Sheikh Farid has become old, his knees have started trembling. But he doesn't care, Even if he lives for hundred years his body is going to turn to dust anyway.

Patience is like drawing a bow, the more you wait the greater the tension. But worrying is futile, just like all the arrows till now; you will not miss the target with the current one.

ਰੋਗਨ ਤੇ ਅਰ ਸੋਗਨ ਤੇ ਜਲ ਜੋਗਨ ਤੇ ਬਹੁ ਭਾਂਤਿ ਬਚਾਵੈ ॥ ਰਾਖਤ ਹੈ ਅਪਨੋ ਕਰ ਦੈ ਕਰ ਪਾਪ ਸੰਬੂਹ ਨ ਭੇਟਨ ਪਾਵੈ ॥

2019-11-13 09:53:27 -0600 answered a question Are people good and bad?

ਖੰਡਾ ਪ੍ਰਥਮਿ ਮਨਾਇਕੈ ਜਿਨ ਸਭ ਸੈਸਾਰ ਉਪਾਇਆ ॥ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਬਿਸਨੁ ਮਹੇਸ ਸਾਜਿ ਕੁਦਰਤਿ ਦਾ ਖੇਲੁ ਬਣਾਇਆ ॥ ਸਿੰਧੁ ਪਰਬਤ ਮੇਦਨੀ ਬਿਨੁ ਥੰਮਾ ਗਗਨ ਰਹਾਇਆ ॥ ਸਿਰਜੇ ਦਾਨੋ ਦੇਵਤੇ ਤਿਨ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਬਾਦੁ ਰਚਾਇਆ ॥

Splitting between the forces of good and evil the whole world was constructed. Birth, existence and death, in this loop nature manifested itself. Somewhere tall mountains others deep oceans all under the spherical sky Evil and good created by the same nature, was then forced to fight each other forever.

2019-11-13 09:41:50 -0600 answered a question one fundamental question

because you are Thinking in a first person perspective, see how many times you used the word "I" in your question

Think of your life as a movie, whose script is pre-written and you are the actor/actress . Bad things in life are unacceptable to the actor, every actor wants to be always happy, But that would make a very lame movie, Any good movie you pick is a hit because it had tragedy in it like Titanic, Pursuit of happiness etc.

There is a Sanskrit quote "Go with the flow, don't resist it" : Keep flowing in the river of time, trying to go against the flow is waste of time and energy

2019-11-09 10:53:55 -0600 answered a question feeling desperate

The problem is you have "listened or did paath as I planned to do" But never understood what it says.

Problems in life will always be there, Paath cannot fix that. only thing Paath (if you really understand what its saying) will do is act as a pain killer.

Suffering and joy are two faces of same coin, one cannot exist without another. If you have never suffered in life you will not know what happiness is and vice -versa. Better to accept and live in reality

If killers are allowed in gurudwaras why would someone prevent a person on wheelchair from entering ?

2019-11-08 13:52:35 -0600 answered a question Supposing one of my terminally ill maternal uncle dies in the month of my wedding, should we postpone the marriage in respect like Hiindus?

Death is nothing bad, its just end of allotted time.

Humans are born with a fear of death to prevent them from committing suicide or keep the cautious of harm

If your uncle was terminally ill and suffering , death was best thing that could have happened to him, he is not ill anymore. Since he was terminally ill death was inevitable.

The best thing to do would be to continue with marriage and make it simple to show your condolences and instead spend that money on langar for the poor (in name of the deceased) instead of a big fat marriage.

2019-11-08 13:47:16 -0600 answered a question I feel a little, periodic rumbling on my throat. i don't know if it comes from throat but I feel it there when I do Simran, what does it mean?

That is your larynx , That is how humans produce sound

When you are meditating it must be quiet around you so you can hear it vibrating, if it's too quiet you can also hear your heart

I don't understand whether this is a question or a statement or you are just sharing knowledge or want opinion , you are going in all directions at once

if are asking about nature and God then the answer is

ਪਾਤੀ ਤੋਰੈ ਮਾਲਿਨੀ ਪਾਤੀ ਪਾਤੀ ਜੀਉ ॥ ਜਿਸੁ ਪਾਹਨ ਕਉ ਪਾਤੀ ਤੋਰੈ ਸੋ ਪਾਹਨ ਨਿਰਜੀਉ ॥

The idiot gardener chops down trees to perform worship

he doesn't know that the leaves he is plucking has God in it and feeds it to the lifeless stone statue thinking that it is God.

2019-11-04 10:14:27 -0600 answered a question What do you imagine while praying

Q: What do you imagine while praying

A: Nothing, Just like you are imagining nothing when you just woke up, if you are imagining then you aren't praying.

Guru -> Farsi word which means from darkness to light

God -> Is a term made up by people who fail to understand the truth they believe that there is a man in the sky running the universe, in Sikhism its called "Ik Onkar" means that everything is connected and part of only 1 system. what you give you recieve, as per your actions. Nobody can leave this system no one can enter from outside you die and live in this.
