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.

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

    • 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.
