"I Get Out"

The song that speaks of how false this world we inhabit is and how maya has crept into every walk in society.  We as the 'Khalsa' have the antidote to this disease but we are the ones that are most affected by it.  From the management of our religious and political institutions and down to the way we live our own individual lives, we embrace 'Maya' and forget the very purpose we are on this earth for.  If we can be brave enough to 'get out' then we would surely be in position to achieve our goals as community.
'Maya' is the very reason we are struggling to win this war against a system that is designed to suppress our souls and imprison our minds.  For all those people within our own community who continue to let us down, we can bet that 'Maya' is the enchantress that is used to capture their souls.
For the ones that truly liberated themselves and captured our hearts and souls throughout the history of the world.  One thing they shared in common, they did not allow 'Maya' to touch them.  Martin Luther King, Che Guevara, Malcom X, Black Panthers, Bhagat Singh, Muhammad Ali, Lauren Hill, Kartar Singh Saraba, Tupac Shakur,  Shaheeds of 1984 and countless revolutionaries have led the way but are we brave enough to 'Get Out'.
Is it the forces that work against us or is it our own weakness and desire for 'Maya' that stops us from achieving our collective goals?  How do we defeat this, living in a world that is governed by a system that celebrates and worships 'Maya' (Capitalism).

    • Right, from one point of view, there is only Parmatma. From Rehras: ਤੂੰ ਆਪੇ ਦਾਤਾ ਆਪੇ ਭੁਗਤਾ ਜੀ ਹਉ ਤੁਧੁ ਬਿਨੁ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਜਾਣਾ ॥ You Yourself are the Giver, and You Yourself are the Enjoyer. I know no other than You. ਸੋਪੁਰਖੁ ਆਸਾ (ਮਃ ੪) (੧) ੨:੩ - ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੧੧ ਪੰ. ੨ 
      Raag Asa Guru Ram Das   Bhai Gurdas ji elucidates this viewpoint: ਆਪੇ ਭੁਖਾ ਹੋਇਕੈ ਆਪਿ ਜਾਇ ਰਸੋਈ। He (the Lord) Himself posing to be hungry goes into the kitchen and cooks the food kneading in it all sorts of delights. ਭੋਜਨ ਆਪਿ ਬਣਾਇਦਾ ਰਸ ਵਿਚਿ ਰਸ ਗੋਈ। Himself eating and getting satiated He showers praises on the dainty dishes. ਆਪੇ ਖਾਇ ਸਲਾਹਿਕੈ ਹੋਇ ਤ੍ਰਿਪਤਿ ਸਮੋਈ। He Himself is the delight as well as the delighted. ਆਪੇ ਰਸੀਆ, ਆਪਿ ਰਸ, ਰਸੁ ਰਸਨਾ ਭੋਈ। He is the juice as well as the tongue which relishes its taste. ਦਾਤਾ ਭੁਗਤਾ ਆਪਿ ਹੈ, ਸਰਬੰਗ ਸਮੋਈ। He permeating through all, Himself is the giver as well as receiver. ਆਪੇ ਆਪਿ ਵਰਤਦਾ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸੁਖੁ ਹੋਈ ॥੩॥ Knowing the fact that He permeates among all, the Gurmukh feels immense pleasure. ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੨ ਪਉੜੀ ੩ ਪੰ. ੬
    • Could you now pose the questions I posed to your Christian "friend" and tell us what his answers are? Also a few more: Is it possible for Jehovah to cease existing? If Jesus is God, then why did Jesus call out to God the Father asking why He had forsaken him? Does that mean God can fall into low spirits (dhendi kala)? If so, is He really God? If He's depressed, how can he help us out of our depressions? Or is He really all-powerful? If it's possible for him to not be perfect, is it possible that what Jesus taught can be said to be imperfect? If so, cannot his words in the Bible said to be imperfect? And if Jesus was imperfect, then his disciples become imperfect by extension, correct? And if his disciples were imperfect, then what they wrote in the Bible is imperfect, too, by extension, correct? If Jesus is God, then why was Jesus tempted in the desert when Satan tempted him? Is God tempted by Maya? If so, is Maya more powerful than Jesus (or Jehovah)?
    • Thank you.  I don't often eat them myself, but I was curious.  I appreciate the feedback.
    • It must be leaving everything which carries a higher life form In  it - as an egg is the food of a chick. There are some papers or maybe rehet in punjabi which mentions not eating eggs.  Most of my elders did eat though. I think it is recently it got practised more and you can see why. Eggs contain harmful bacteria these days. You might fall behind in your simran by falling ill. Just my speculation. 
    • A poster in another thread mentioned eggs being off limit.  So I tried researching dietary teachings of Sikhi.  I ran straight into a wall of conflicting information. Some eating meat as long as its not kosher or halal, others eating jhatka meat only.  Still nothing on eggs.  I respect everyone's personal choice, but where do the eggs come in?
