Moments of Reflection
10 dollars look so big when we take it to Gurdwara,
But so small when we take it to the store.
60 minutes is long when we are sitting in Gurdwara,
But short when shopping, playing soccer, or watching television.
We believe what a person or newspaper says,
But question what GuruJi says.
We can't think of anything to say when we pray,
But don't have any difficulty when we gossip.
We need 2 or 3 weeks to fix a prayer or kirtan event into our schedule,
But have no prob adjusting for a social event in the last minute.
We get thrilled when a soccer game goes into extra time,
But complain when a Gurdwara service takes longer than usual.
We scramble to get a front row seat at a bhangra concert,
But look for a back row seat at the Gurdwara.
It is difficult to share GuruJi's words with others,
But simple to spread rumours.

    The power of the Internet and blogging is to "spread the word". Don't be shy to talk about your love for Guru Ji.
