Don't expect anything in return. Absolutely nothing. March on and do what needs to be done.

You have to differentiate between physical wealth and spiritual wealth which is Naam.

Your physical wealth has to do with Karms, which can be changed according to Gurbani

For a detailed explaination with quotes from Gurbani and how to change your Karms see this katha its in english and punjabi

What can one do? Stay in Hukum and remember God, if God graces then they can change ones life, according to their karms which maybe reduced.

Phases in life may change, there maybe good times, there maybe bad times, there maybe times when one cannot cope. It's never the same throughout, but one that does not change is Gods name.

ੴ ਸਤਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਕਰਤਾ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨਿਰਭਉ ਨਿਰਵੈਰੁ ਅਕਾਲ ਮੂਰਤਿ ਅਜੂਨੀ ਸੈਭੰ ਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥

There is but one God. True is His Name, creative His personality and immortal His form. He is without fear sans enmity, unborn and self-illumined. By the Guru's grace He is obtained.

The way im dealing with it is by going Gurdwara and listening to more paath. I try to go twice a week now and i find peace of mind when im sat upstairs (dont go to socialise like most people do lol). Also, always have faith, this is god testing you to see how strong you are and try to see the bigger picture

Pen Jee,

I agree when life gives us blows we loose all our faith, we are all weak.

Having said that, I will also say, as per Bani: aapay beejay, aapay kaae.

All our destiny, however pleasant or not, it is just our own karmas pen jee. So let us stop blaming our beloved Wahiguru.

It is being totally unjust with Him.

And inspite of our moorakhta, our ignorance in seeing reality as it is, He, the most graceful, the most bountiful, the most soft heartened, He according to the Bani, has gblessed us with a powerful tool to overcome all our pains and miseries, and that is His Naam Simran.

We have done all types of karmas, and we are responsible of them, how can we have the cheek to blame Him?

Then too, He never says, you have no right to come near me and go away, rather He says, I know you are weak, but anyhow, howsoever you are still dear to me.

And so, we just have to elevate our surtee within with His Simran, and place it at His Charan Kamal, and then see how much He loves us.

It is said, a mother loves her child inmensely, but the love of Wahiguru for us jeevas, is just to say a bit, is even multiplied that motherly love a thousand times....

Just a request Pen jee, let us never ever be so harsh with our Sachay Patshah, Wahiguru Akal Purukh. It is the biggest mistake we can ever make.

Rather love Him with all our mind, heart and soul.

He, only and only, deserves to be loved.

Sat Sree Akal.

What went down the drain was not ours to begin with. We have only what we have at present and nothing tomorrow, nothing yesterday. We must quickly remember that when we lose something. If we trust that God is doing it for the better, only then can we do our part to make the present moment better.

Lots of helpful advice above. Feel free to be more specific as to what it is that you're dealing with.

When life does not go as planned, there is no other choice. You cannot stop believing in God. You just learnt to live with it.

Life is Dukha, it never goes like the way we want it.
