Reminders..

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

The past couple of weeks - especially the past few days - I have thought a lot about many things, a few of them which were just right for blogging about.. but I always forget them. I need to remember them now. I know two of them were controversial but very important..

OH I remembered one: convo with Sandeep Veerji last night, concerning that random video {must find again}, and monas who claim Sikhi vs. Sikhs, what makes a Sikh a Sikh, and what should be done about those who claim to be Sikhs but adhere not to the simplest of rules. This relates directly to Sandeep Veerji's question of eons ago, do we treat them with love in the sense that we let them say they are Sikhs, or do we come down hard and exclaim they are not Sikhs and drive them even further away from the path. Is a middle grounds possible? Post to come.

Bairaag/depression.. dropped original post, new experiences will definitely take this from a different perspective.

Addictiveness of chat and internet.. and the method discussed with Veerji last night.. will staying away long enough make us [disgusted] when we return? {pepsi resistance!}

ekta.. interesting topic really.. a somewhat inspirational 'speech' {supposedly}.. we need someone to write something worded quite strongly.. a wake up call.. to show people that we say we need to improve ourselves, only then can we have ekta.. yet we continue to be a downer on one and all, and forget this personal improvement scheme {wow, i hope i understand this at a later time}..

effects of education 'outsiders' of incidents like '84.. what do we accomplish? or marches and protests really all we can do? have we honestly exhausted all peaceful means, should we now give in to those who say that marches and protests have been overused and we need now to lift - not our swords - but guns? {no.. but why? need good, sound, reasonably logical approach [teraroopie, you know you're not good at that =pp], some sort of proof is needed, that all peaceful means have been exhausted.. i mean, petitions, protests, marches.. is this really all that the 'peaceful arsenal' consists of? unbelievable.}

what will motivate kids? interesting concept.. asked one who appears unmotivated, yet has an obvious desire deep down which only became obvious through a few, oblique opened up moments.. half moments more like.. anyway, the answer to the question of 'what, sikhi related of course, would motivate you to further your spiritual life?'.. answer? here: "lots of money.. and a gutka." at first it seemed like it wouldnt work.. but i looked back on what motivated me, and i think.. why not? this ties in, perhaps even directly, with the gifts of money awared to children who attend our saturday camps.. what changed us? we went for the same reasons.. and now we dont?

PANGAT - LANGAR! we've lost the original concept.. specifically cover..: in Guru Jee Maharaj da vela, Sangat would arrive and partake of Langar before they could receive Darshan.. we no longer do this. and segregation, for lack of the existence of a more suitable word in roopi's vocab, still exists.. for ex. we sit by people we know, or in empty spaces, we become uncomfortable and hesitate when we are forced to sit next to someone we dont know or like due to limited space.. so.. what happened? how do we fix it? OH also.. seva.. whenever did this buffet line system start? what happened to sevadaars who 'served' the seated sanga {pangat?} rather than sangat coming up to the 'window' to get food?

modern times.. technology advances.. so we try to come up with better methods of educating the little ones.. and what do we produce? video games full of blood and gore, animated movies which create controversies under the title of lack of proper respect, or misrepresentation.. why are we making it worse? we are we accomodating the lack of knowledge of the future generations? we are only making it worse by building things for them.. wouldnt it be logical, and better all around, to teach them Punjabi and educate them in Baani and Sikh history the way we were? our Sikhi and history is slowly being erased because of mutilation of the sweet truth.. or lack of provisions.

whatever happened to guardian sikhs.. mm run that over with a few ppl.. dont spread it too far, ppl run away with and distort things..

most important: teach self to shut up.

im sure i left out a few =)

be back in a couple of weeks?

Chardeekalaa,

I actually read the post this time around. It seems to have about 10 different posts in it :) Nevertheless, POST NEW POST (sorry pinky I couldn't resist)

I particularly liked this point:

"Addictiveness of chat and internet.."

:)

As for the 'better methods of educating the little ones', these new techonologies are all a waste of time. What you need is a nice fat book and an empty brain (The empty brain is vital to this method as the more you know, the longer learning will take).

Diffusion must occur!

The movement of knowledge from an area of high concentration (the fat book) to an area of low concentration (an empty brain) through a permeable membrane (umm, your eyes)

And to conclude this totally random post...

They're Pinky and The Brain
Yes Pinky and The Brain
One is a genius, the other's insane
They're laboratory mice, their genes have been spliced
They're dinky, they're Pinky and The Brain Brain Brain Brain Brain

Before each night is done, their plan will be unfurled
By the dawning of the sun they'll take over the world
They're Pinky and The Brain
Yes Pinky and The Brain
The Twilight Campaign is easy to explain
They'll prove they're mousy worth, and overthrow the earth
They're dinky, they're Pinky and The Brain Brain Brain Brain Brain Brain Brain Brain

Narf!
