  2. Who says creation can not exist without the material one, of course it does, for example the astral one, or even the still finer one, which is the causal one, but you see the material has to exist also, if only the jeevas in the creation have to reunite themselves with Wahiguru... Otherwise let us ask ourselves, if it was so, why would Guru Sahiban come at our human level? You see even the deities, devis, devtays, gods, etc, in the finer realms can not achieve union with Him, until first been born as humans, and do His bhakti with His kirpa. The Bani clearly says, you have got the chance to meet Gobind, Wahiguru Akal Purukh, by getting the form of a human being. Bhayee Prapat Manukh Dehuriya, Gobind Milan Ki Eho Teri Bariya. Sat Sree Akal.

  4. in my humble opinion, I believe, this situation takes place, when a sikh/disciple/Gurmukh, talks about, or refers, to Guru Sahiban, who are Wahiguru Akal Purukh in human form. Just as a successor Guru talks/refers/ to, about His predecessor, for example Guru Angad Dev about Sree Guru Nanak Dev, or Sree Guru Arjun Dev, about Sree Guru Ram Das Maharaj... Sat Sree Akal.
  5. dogs reincarted sikhism

    Guest Jee, It is your attachment with your dog which makes you think /feel, it will be reincarnated as a human being, but frankly speaking there is no such calculation, to say that after this, that will happen so and so. That is all our manmat. You see, human birth is got after the summary of good karam in several lives. To derive the real benefit from being into sikhee, is not by being born or staying in a sikh family, it is more than that, it is attaching our soul consciousness to that Primal and Supreme Truth, which is Wahiguru Akal Purukh, through bhakti. If that was the case of being born in sikh environments, let us take for example Prithvi Chand, who was the eldest son of Chauthvee Patshahee Sree Guru Ram Das, and brother to Fifth Patshahee Sree Guru Arjun Dev, but in spite of being so close to Them, living with Them, having Their darshan the most, but that, did not stop him from being a wicked donkey.... So you see, it is not the physical closeness that counts, but our association with that permanent eternal Truth, Wahiguru Akal Purukh, through the bhakti of His simran, which only humans can do. No doubt, you can pray for your dog, for prayers do not go in waste, they soothe both, to the one who prays, and the one for whom we pray for. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.

    The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.” —Meister Eckhart “Our inner guidance comes to us through our feelings and body wisdom first - not through intellectual understanding. The intellect works best in service to our intuition, our inner guidance, soul, God or higher power - whichever term we choose for the spiritual energy that animates life.” —Christiane Northrup Do not do tomorrow what you can do today. If you feel the need to forgive, forgive today. If you feel the need to risk, risk today. If you feel the need to apologise, apologise today. If you feel the need to love someone, love them today. If you feel the need to create something, create something today. If you do this there will be no conflict within, you will grow in Spirit because you will be your true authentic Self - living at full potential. Live for today, not for tomorrow.” —Wallace Huey “We turn to God for help when our foundations are shaking, only to learn that it is God who is shaking them.” —Charles C. West “As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery… we have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness.” —Dalai Lama
  7. Guest Sikhism, what is wrong with you? Why don´t you do a self introspection, and look in your inner mirror before baseless blaming of being egoistical or a sight to behold? That would surely be a pitiful sight. Have you seen or understood what Gurpreet Singh is asking, or the reply I have given him? I think you have not, for you were engrossed in your own ego/hankar, which was hurt, as the reply given differed from your thinking. Nobody is preaching here, so stop talking like the hindu pandits, of elite or utter monks which do not exist in sikhee. In sikhee there is Guru Jee as guru, and all others are of the same class, means Sikhs... no elite, no monks or higher or lower sikhs Then also, Gurpreet is not making any general query as you think it to be. He is asking a specific question, about: if one merges with Wahiguru, does one still have our own mind, and if one can see others and travel, or if on reaching there and becoming Wahiguru along with all others? You see, this is a short simple and a direct question, not a general query as you pretend it to be. So naturally, if your perception is not correct of what the OP is asking, definitely, your response could well be anything, but far from what it ought to be. Then also your baseless accusation of creating karma, by telling someone to stray away completely , for asking more about sikhism, is utter nonsense. For the OP has never asked more about sikhism, but a short simple and specific question about mind and Wahiguru in short, or in other words, about the state of the self when becoming one with Him, as simple as that. So, be humble enough to understand fully what is being said, and stop indulging into mental loose motion. I do not know if you were blinded by your hankar or krodh, but you never saw what I told the posters above, in case you did overlook it, let me reproduce it to you once again: Do you really think, if I wanted anyone to stray away, i would have written the line above? Am I not saying that, for whosoever wants to merge in Him, should do His bhakti wholeheartedly and single minded? And the bhakti I refer to, there is no mention of any elite or monk class, rather for any wadbhagee sikh, who wants Him alone, none other than Wahiguru Akal Purukh. If anything I said, which you really have misunderstood, is that, if you want anything apart from Wahiguru, then, do not follow sikhee, rather any other dharam, where he/she can satisfy their minds with varieties/multiplicity of forms, sizes, and colors... For as brother NEOS1NGH has shared some most beautiful verses above : You see, in the last verse above, it clearly says: Na maan, which means no mind or mindless, so this should answer the question of the OP, for there is no mind, as the mind by itself is a barrier between us and Him. You see, it is all braham through the mind, which makes us see the untruth as something real, and permanent, thus id does not allow to realize Him. Mind is not ours, for it is left behind in the lower dimensions, only the soul is our real self, which belongs to Him, and in Him it returns to become one with Him, through His apaar kirpa only. It is our limited perception of Him and ourselves as individuals, which keeps us deluded all the time, until, as said above, we hold on to Him, through His bhakti, realize our true identity as divine beings, only then will we take the right steps in the right direction, until then, we will be stumbling in our own manmat. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.

    In the endless adventure of existence, God and man are comrades. God is our one unfailing companion. He will never leave us. We may try to run away from him. But He will continue to follow us as our own shadow. There is a meaning of mercy in everything that happens to us. For God is All-love. He is All-wisdom. He is too loving to punish, too wise to make a mistake. Whatever happens in the Divine Providence happens for our own good.

    In Gurmat, we become aware of the Inmensity and majesty of Wahiguru. And moreover if ever we have to devote ourselves, that has to be only, and only Wahiguru Akal Purukh. Though there are many well known spiritual entities, gods, godesses, devtas, angels, which are worshipped by human beings at different places and in different dharams. But the fact is, at most one goes to their abodes for a temporary stay, then fall back into the creation. If one is bad or good by nature, worshipping these entities, will only make us get powers or boons, that is it. While on the other side, if we worship Wahiguru only, Fifth Patshahee in Raag Soohee, tells us in simple and plain words, what are the consequences in doing so : ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਅਰਾਧਹਿ ਮੈਲੁ ਸਭ ਕਾਟਹਿ ਕਿਲਵਿਖ ਸਗਲੇ ਖੋਵੈ Har Naam Araadhhehi Mail Sabh Kaattehi Kilavikh Sagalae Khovai हरि नामु अराधहि मैलु सभ काटहि किलविख सगले खोवै They worship the Lord's Name, and all their filth is washed away; they rid themselves of all sins. I think we need no expalnations, His lovely words are self sufficient by themselves. And if we did understand anything from it, it means, we become pure paviter, howsoever we are, and thus we merge in Him by His unlimited Daya Meher. Sat Sree Akal.

    Such a wonderful read!! This testimony has blown me apart. May I live for Him alone not for the things of this world._ ____ _--In the interview by *Paul Bradshaw with Rick Warren,_ Rick said: --People ask me, What is the purpose of life? --And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven. --One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the end of my body-- but not the end of me. --I may live 60 to 100 years on earth, but I am going to spend trillions of years in eternity. This is the warm-up act --the dress rehearsal. God wants us to practice on earth what we will do forever in eternity.. --We were made by God and for God, and until you figure that out, life isn't going to make sense. --Life is a series of problems: Either you are in one now, OR you're just coming out of one, OR you're getting ready to go into another one. --The reason for this is that God is more interested in your character than your comfort; God is more interested in making your life holy than He is in making your life happy. --We can be reasonably happy here on earth, but that's not the goal of life. The goal is to grow in character, in the prophet (saw) likeness. --No matter how good things are in your life, there is always something bad that needs to be worked on. --And no matter how bad things are in your life, there is always something good you can thank God for. --You can focus on your purposes, or you can focus on your problems: --If you focus on your problems, you're going into self-centeredness, which is my problem, my issues, my pain. But one of the easiest ways to get rid of pain is to get your focus off yourself and onto God and others. --We need to ask ourselves: Am I going to live for possessions? Popularity? --Am I going to be driven by pressures? Guilt? Bitterness? Materialism? am I going to be driven by God's purposes (for my life)? --When I get up in the morning, I sit on the side of my bed and say, God, if I don't get anything else done today, I want to know You more and love You better. God didn't put me on earth just to fulfill a to-do list. He's more interested in what I am than what I do. --That's why we're called human beings, not human doings. --Happy moments, THANK GOD. --Difficult moments, SEEK GOD. --Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD. --Painful moments, TRUST GOD. --Every moment, PRAISE GOD.
  13. Brother, there, there is no I, is no we, no they/them, no he nor she, but only Wahiguru, I repeat it once more, only HIm, Wahiguru Akal Purukh. Sach Khand is not like Swarg, Baikunth or alike the devtay loks/planes, where gods are with goddesses, their children, devtays, demigods, evil and so on.... In Sach Khand, only Ik Oankar, Satnam exists, if anyone wants to remain or see indivduals there, then better do not follow sikhee, be a christian or a hindu or any other dharam/religion. Sikhee is not for those who have any other desires or expectations, other than the Highest of all, only One, Wahiguru Akal Purukh. Sat Sree Akal.
  14. Brother, Mind is duality, is confusion, is maya, is change, is variety, is limited, is the source of pain, is subtle matter, is not divinity.... Just as long as water is in the bottle, even if thrown in the sea, the water in the bottle is separate from its origin, the Sea, though there is water on all sides. in a similar way, in order for the water to become one with the sea, the bottle has to be broken, in a similar way, mind is only with the soul, as long as the soul is under the control of the mind. Once the soul, is released from the mind by His apaar kirpa through Bhakti, the mind becomes helpless and powerless, thus only releases the soul from its clutches, then the soul rides higher and higher, in the jahaaz of Nam, and reaches Sach Khand, upon reaching there, it becomes one with the only one original and permanent existing reality, which is none other than Wahiguru Akal Purukh. Just as all the rivers flow and merge in the Ocean, to become one with it without any distinction, so do all souls do upon reaching there, means merging in Him. Souls do not go there for vacation, or sightseeing, or attending a musical concert, or give it any name ...But souls yearn to go there, for it is their origin, where once they were one with Him, without any second, third or multiplicity. For there only Wahiguru exists. Sach Khand vaseh Nirankar There is no such destruction of the soul. For the soul being a particle of the Ocean, holds all the same virtues/qualities, as the Ocean has; that of divinity, of Sach, of chit, of Anand, of immortality. If the soul was not of the same nature as Him, it could never become one with Him. If there is any destruction prior to our union with Him, that is of the mind only, and it is due to this very mind that we are confined in the mayavee creation, taking our bodies to be our real identity and nature...and from there on, all our problems start. Holding on to Him, through His bhakti, is the key to be freed from all this mind and maya, and also the key of our union with Him. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
