" SABR "


I’ve always wondered what SABR (Patience ) is
I was never given a proper definition
so my concept of it was somewhat distorted;
All I understood was that you wait
until it’s over.
But now, if I were to put it into words,
this is what I’ve gathered so far:
SÂBR
is suppressing that angry voice in
your head, the one that wants to
yell at people for being inconsiderate
to your struggle.
SÂBR
is swallowing this voice,
overcoming it and learning to
channel it towards a heartfelt du'a instead.
SÂBR
is forgiving someone when they
dismiss your feelings.
SÂBR
is meeting those who deserted
you, with a smile on your lips,
even though your tears are one
step away from exposing you.
SÂBR
is staying silent because you’ve
already stated your point too
many times before.
SÂBR
is conforming to someone’s demand because of their right over you.
SÂBR
is fulfilling the rights of others
even when they transgress
against yours.
SÂBR
is crying about your heartache in
front of God and no one else.
SÂBR
is believing wholeheartedly that
God has beautiful things in
store for you.
SÂBR
is crawling forward even when
you want to stop.
SÂBR
is an active state of being,
it is not a theory to simply be
discussed and forgotten....

MARRIAGE BOX

Most people get married beleiving a myth  that marriage is a beautiful box full of all thinghs they longed for. friendship, companionship, intimacy, etc.

The truth is that marriage is an empty box at the start.  You must put in something, before you can take anything out. There is no love in marriage. Love is in people. And people put love in marriage. There is no romance in marriage. You have to infuse it into your marriage.

A couple must learn the art and form the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising, keeping the box full.

If you take out more than you put in, the box will be empty.

Pen Jee,

there is something called sharing.

Some of my friends, do share these stories with me,  others, I do find by my own.

But in the end, it is all comes to sharing the goodness  one gets/finds, which, I also share here on this forum of Sikh Sangat.

The difference in being a devotee or a manmukh

 

Once there were two friends, one was a god oriented devotee, and the other one, was a manmukh.

Their friendship was deep, but the devotee believed in god, while the manmukh did not.

The devotee would wake up early in the morning, take a bath and recite the holy hymns, while the manmukh would still be in bed sound asleep.

Once they were traveling through a forest. As they were passing through the forest, the manmukh found a bag of coal.         He was very happy, because he could sell it and make some money. As they further walked while talking about how lucky the manmukh was to find the bag of coal, the devotee screamed with pain.

It appeared that a splinter went in the devotee´s foot. While he was in pain,  the manmukh started laughing.

The devotee was surprised, and asked him why was he laughing?

The manmukh said, “You have been worshipping God everyday and what you got as a result, is a splinter in your foot. While I have never worshipped God and I still got a bag full of coal.”

An old wise man happened to be passing by when he heard manmukh’s comments.

The old man had a big ironic smile on his face. The manmukh was astonished, when he saw the old man smile.

So the manmukh asked the old man about the reason for his smile.

The old man replied, “You are naïve. You do not worship God. You were destined to find a bag of diamonds today if you have been worshipping God.

And you bhagat devotee, you were destined to die at the moment you got the splinter in your foot.

But because you have been worshipping God, the pain of death, simply turned into a splinter.”

MAKE IT BEAUTIFUL

WORK FOR A CAUSE

NOT FOR APPLAUSE

LIVE LIFE TO EXPRESS

NOT TO IMPRESS

DO NOT STRIVE

TO MAKE YOUR PRESENCE NOTICED

JUST MAKE YOUR ABSENCE FELT

 

 

RELEASE  THE EXPECTATIONS

HOW MUCH TIME &

ENERGY WE WASTE

IN ASKING PEOPLE TO CHANGE

WAITING FOR THEM TO CHANGE

UPSET BECAUSE THEY DO NOT CHANGE?

INVEST A LITTLE TIME

AND ENERGY

IN TEACHING YOUR OWN MIND TO

RELEASE THE EXPECTATIONS

 

 

 

SELF IMPROVEMENT

I AM IN COMPETITION WITH NO ONE

I RUN MY OWN RACE

I HAVE NO DESIRE IN BEING BETTER

THAN ANYONE

IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM

I JUST AIM TO IMPROVE

TO BE BETTER

THAN I WAS BEFORE

THAT IS ME

AND I AM FREE.

 

 

COURAGE

KEEP YOUR DREAMS ALIVE

UNDERSTAND TO ACHIEVE ANYTHING

REQUIRES FAITH AND BELIEF IN YOURSELF

VISION, HARD WORK

DETERMINATION AND DEDICATION

REMEMBER ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE

FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE

STAYING  PURE

Asceticisim does not lie is ascetic robes,

in a walking staff or in ashes

Asceticism does not lie in the earring

or in the shaven head

nor does it lie

in blowing a conch.

Asceticism lies

in staying pure

amidst impurities.

Overthinking :

The art of creating problems that weren't even there."


Maturity:

is learning to walk away from people and situations that threaten your peace of mind, self-respect, values, morals or self worth.
"Sometimes walking away is the only option.

Not because you want to make someone miss you,

or realize they took you for granted.

But because

you finally respect yourself enough

to know that you deserve better."

 

About expectations
"When you learn to accept instead of expect,

you will have fewer disappointments."

    • apparently she is a shameless characterless woman - think her actions have proven this to be true 
    • Salute to this mahaan jodha who sacrificed his all for us, funding himself for the sangaarsh, turning his back on a successful business and the luxuries of the west.  
    • If a Simran/mediation section is made on this forum. We collectively can do a lot of Name Simran Jaap's together   It must be remembered  that GURMANTAR  is not just a word; lying hidden behind it is the subtle form of  guru's presence     personality  soul          light   essence of love   divine glance Continuously meditating of GURMANTAR with faith and love will produce a state where the letters of the GURMANTAR "WAHEGURU" will imperceptibly begin to dissolve, melt and transform into a subtle form    - its illuminated form    - its principle form    - its bliss producing form    _ love radiating form    - life giving  force ts Naam form These divine form/force/vibrations then change into and appear as             Jingling (sounds)            limitless tinkling sound              Divine music Just as Bhagat Kabir has said, "The letters shall perish. The imperishable  Lord cannot be described through these letters." ( 340) 
    • Many Sikhs and asians in general look up to the royal family. But did anyone realise how racist the royal family is. They may not show it upfront be belive me these people are the most racist you can get.  Heres some remarks that were caught on tape by Prince harry. If this is what they say in the open. Who knows what tripe they come out with in private. some info taking from wikpedia  Harry earned a reputation in his youth for being rebellious, leading the tabloid press to label him a "wild child".[151] He was seen at age 17 smoking cannabis and partaking in underage drinking with his friends, clashing physically with paparazzi outside nightclubs,[151] and was photographed at Highgrove House at a "Colonial and Native" themed costume party wearing a Nazi German Afrika Korps uniform with a swastikaarmband.[152] He later issued a public statement apologising for his behaviour.[153] In January 2009, the British tabloid, the News of the World, revealed a video made by Harry three years earlier in which he referred to a Pakistani fellow officer cadet as "our little Pakifriend" and called a soldier wearing a cloth on his head a "raghead". These terms were described by then-Leader of the Opposition David Cameron as "unacceptable",[154] and by The Daily Telegraph as "racist",[154] with a British Muslim youth organisation calling Harry a "thug".[155] Clarence Houseimmediately issued an apology from Harry, who stated that no malice was intended in his remarks.[156] Former British MP and Royal Marine, Rod Richards, said that such nicknames were common amongst military comrades, stating "in the Armed Forces people often used to call me Taffy. Others were called Yankie, Oz or Kiwi or whatever. I consider Paki as an abbreviation for Pakistani. I don't think on this occasion it was intended to be offensive."[157]
