Being doggy

If you do something good

and expect a reward in return,

keep in mind,

this is how

dogs are trained.

Sign of humility

"To respect people who are HIGHER than you, it`s ORDINARY.
To respect people who are LOWER than you,it`s EXTRA ordinary..........

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Time has no holiday..

Dreams have no expiry date..

And life has no pause button...!

Live it..  Love it..
Enjoy each and every moment of your life....!

Save only those memories which gives twinkle in your eyes...

Not wrinkles on your face...!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

You are your own enemy

and you don't know it.

You don't learn to sit quietly.

You don't learn to give time to God.

And you are impatient and expect to attain heaven all at once.

You cannot get it

by reading books

or by listening to sermons

or by doing charitable works.

You can get it only

by giving your time to Him in His Simran

for

Prabh Ka simran sabh tay oochaa.

 

Sat Sree Akal.

Feeling good

You want to have a good mood?

Make others feel good first.

Life is a boomerang.

 

Peace of mind

Peace of mind  is a beautiful gift

which only

we can give ourselves

Just by expecting nothing

even after doing everything.

A girl by name Joyce went to school in the neighboring village where she wasn't known well.

For three weeks, she came to school late and every time the teacher punished her.

On the fourth week, Joyce didn't attend school at all, and many thought she had GIVEN UP on school due to the everyday punishment.

However, Joyce reported again on fifth week, and this time she came earlier than everybody.

When the teacher came to class, Joyce was punished for not attending school the previous week, but the teacher was also kind enough to commend her for coming early that day, stating that the punishments had finally yielded some results.

Just then,  Joyce asked if she could say something and the teacher gave her permission.

She started :

"I've been raised up by a single mother without a brother or a sister. Five weeks ago, my mother fell ill and was hospitalized. The three weeks I came late, I had to prepare something for her every morning and pass by the hospital to deliver the same.

Unfortunately, mother passed away last week and that's the reason I didn't come to school.

We buried her last Friday. Today I came early since I didn't have to prepare anything, or even pass by the hospital.

And now that she is gone, I will always be here early''

As she sat down, no one in the whole class was able to hold their tears, the teacher was not spared either.

Lesson:

How many times do we judge others for things we know not?

We ask questions like:

- When will you get married?
- When will you have kids?
- When will you find a job?
-When will you buy a car?
-When will you build a house?
etc....

Do we attempt to understand their situations or we just judge from the case scenarios?

Some situations are not relative and what we think could be very far from the truth.

Don't assume you know what others go through or that people move in the same pace or direction as you

Life is far from that..

Just be kind enough to love one another as God has commanded,
 take time and kindly find out why your friend is not phoning,
why your messages are not being replied promptly,
why they haven't visited,
 why someone is missing in our midst as a colleague, friend, brother or sister,
why someone is always late etc

Be kind always.
Be nice to others.

A man died...

When he realized it, he saw God coming closer with a suitcase in his hand.

Dialog between God and Dead Man:

God: Alright son, it’s time to go

Man: So soon? I had a lot of plans...

God: I am sorry but, it’s time to go

Man: What do you have in that suitcase?

God: Your belongings

Man: My belongings? You mean my things... Clothes... money...

God; Those things were never yours, they belong to the Earth

Man: Is it my memories?

God: No. They belong to Time

Man: Is it my talent?

God: No. They belong to Circumstances

Man: Is it my friends and family?

God: No son. They belong to the Path you traveled

Man: Is it my wife and children?

God: No. they belong to your Heart

Man: Then it must be my body

God: No No... It belongs to Dust

Man: Then surely it must be my Soul!

God: You are sadly mistaken son. Your Soul belongs to me.

Man with tears in his eyes and full of fear took the suitcase from the God's hand and opened it...

Empty...

With heartbroken and tears down his cheek he asks God...

Man: I never owned anything?

God: That’s Right. You never owned anything.

Man: Then? What was mine?

God: your MOMENTS.
Every moment you lived was yours.

Do Good in every moment
Think Good in every moment
Thank God for every moment

Life is just a Moment.

Live it...
Love it...
Enjoy it......

    • Monatosingh replied. The rope is strategic in many ways. Out in the wild and need to make weapons, you may need rope. Need to make a little makeshift roof, you need rope. Need to tie anything together for the purpose of surviving, you will always need rope.   Dori also saves the issue of gatra breaking, etc
    • Guru Nanak Dev Ji's Parkash is disputed between 3 Dates Friday, Katak Sudi 15 Pooranmashi, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) Saturday, Vaisakh Sudi 3, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) (Not Pooranmashi) Monday, 1 Vaisakh, 1526 Bikrami (Solar Date) (Pooranmashi) There is debate on this issue, I recommend reading the document mentioned in the OP. Also PLS, Benti for everyone, when referring to Gurpuabs, pls use Bikrami or Mool Nanakshahi (Which are basically Bikrami dates) dates, don't use English dates as they are not accurate as the original. We need more people to start using Desi Months and days, Barah Maha Parro!
    • Serious question though, how would one use a Dori Kirpan practically? Like how would it be used? I think thats why some people say its just for show because maybe you can't use it well? I wouldn't know.
    • Sometimes we use the phrase "Just do it" in the Dojo. Other times we say "Shut up and train".  Heh. 
    • Exactly. Oh, so it's not a made-up saakhi? Even if it were, it would be good. It sounds vaguely like the saakhi of Bhai Banno. I agree that it is unreasonable to demand discounts of shopkeepers because "it's for a religious purpose". They can't verify that. You're trading on your long beard to make the other guy think you're "religious". You're just setting it up for unscrupulous people with beards to come by and abuse it, which then gets found out, and then people lose faith in Sikhs and Sikhi. On the other hand, it would be OK for a gurdwara to put out the call for construction materials, legal services, accounting services, medical services (free medical camps). Then people can verify it's for a religious purpose because they're giving directly to the gurdwara. And then sawmill owners can drop off wood at the gurdwara, marble showroom owners can drop off marble, etc. Or people in fields not in demand can buy the stuff (possibly at cost) and have it delivered to the gurdwara.
