Strange but True..

Isn't it strange how a £20 note seems like such a large amount when you donate it to the Gurdwara, but such a small amount when you go for shopping?

Isn't it strange how 2 hours seem so long when you're at the Gurdwara, and how short they seem when you're watching a good movie? 

Isn't it strange that you can't find a word to say when you're praying, but you have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend?

Isn't it strange how difficult and boring it is to read one chapter of the Guru Granth Sahib, but how easy it is to read 100 pages of a popular novel?

Isn't it strange how everyone wants front-row-tickets to concerts or games, but they do whatever is possible to sit at the back of the Gurdwara?

Isn't it strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about Waheguru to share it with others, but how easy it is to learn, understand, extend and repeat gossip?

Isn't it strange how we believe everything that magazines and newspapers say, but we question the words in the Guru Granth Sahib?

Isn't it strange how everyone wants a place in heaven, but they don't want to believe, do, or say anything to get there?

Still there is time to understand.....

Or else..

ਜਨਮ ਜਨਮ ਭਰਮਤ ਫਿਰਿਓ ਮਿਟਿਓ ਨ ਜਮ ਕੋ ਤ੍ਰਾਸੁ ॥
जनम जनम भरमत फिरिओ मिटिओ न जम को त्रासु ॥
Janam janam bẖarmaṯ firi▫o miti▫o na jam ko ṯarās.
Mortals wander lost and confused through countless lifetimes; their fear of death is never removed.
