Goals


ਬਾਰ ਬਾਰ ਹਰਿ ਕੇ ਗੁਨ ਗਾਵਉ (ਅੰਗ ੩੪੪)

Baar baar har ke gunh gavoh (ang 344)


Baar baar - again and again, consistently 

Har - Lord

Gunh - qualities

Gaavoh - I sing


(To be on the path), I have to consistently sing the praises of the Lord. 


---------


Every long-term goal should be broken into short term achievements.


For example if you have sugar addiction and you want to overcome it, just having it as a long-term goal is not enough. The feeling is good, the goal is good, we don't need sugar in our body and we can stay off this addiction. It is a good long term goal but just having the goal is not good enough.


Break it down to a daily achievement that today you're going to be completely off sugar for 24 hours. 

Not only that, find a person who you can report to sincerely and you know that it has to be done on a daily basis. Make that a 7-Day plan that you are not going to take anything sweet.


After a week, add more people in this experiment of yours, perhaps you can inspire others to do the same. 


And this is can be true for making or breaking any habit. 


The basic point is to have a goal and then a plan to execute it.  

Including people, friends or family in this becomes an important factor. The power of sangat. 


Consistency and focus can bring about any results you want.

Happy New Years!



ਥਿਰੁ ਘਰਿ ਬੈਸਹੁ ਸੋ ਹਰਿ ਜਨ ਪਿਆਰੇ

ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਤੁਮਰੇ ਕਾਜ ਸਵਾਰੇ (ਅੰਗ ੨੦੧)

Thir ghar baeso har jan pyare

Satgur tumre kaaj savarey (ang 201)


Thir - steady

Ghar - inner home

Baeso - stay

Tumre - your 

Kaaj - affairs

Savarey - resolve


O spiritual beings, become more steady within your inner home; the true Guru will resolve all your affairs.

Let's slow down a little

When the time he's running at such a speed, why are we in a hurry to compete with it?


Let's slow down a little

Instead of rushing through the speeding cars to cross the road, let's take the stairs of the crossing bridge just to enjoy our journey to go across the road.


Let's slow down a little

In the cold weather while sipping the tea or coffee, let's enjoy the fragrance and taste of every sip that we take. And maybe there is a lot more to life, but even this could just be a moment that defines living.


Let's slow down a little

While running through the park to complete your laps and steps of the day, just sit down on the bench listening to the chirping of the birds and laughter of the children playing nearby.


I know life might not be easy for a lot of people, like a treadmill without an off switch. 

Yet let's start taking time out for ourselves. 

Start settling down to be at peace with ourselves, be fine with what we have or own. 


It's amazing to explore the entire world externally and a lot of us must have visited some very stunning places. 

But how about the world inside?


Maybe with a new year, we can start becoming more inward, more settled, more complete. 


A Very Happy New Year to all.
