Isn't it Strange
Isn't it strange how a 20 pound bill seems like such a large amount when you donate it to the Gurdwara,
but such a small amount when you go 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 Bani from Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji,
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 we need to know about an event for the Gurdwara 2-3 weeks before the day so we can include it in our agenda,
but we can adjust it for other events in the last minute?
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 assume whatever the news channels are telling us is the truth,
but we question the divine words in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji?
Isn't it strange how we believe the weather forecaster says and prepare accordingly,
but we make no effort to act upon the signs and warnings given by Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji about our life and death?
Isn't it strange how everyone wants their soul to go to a nice place after dying,
but they don't want to believe, do, or say anything to get there?
Isn't it strange that we can spend hours upon hours on Facebook try to get know a complete stranger that we have made our 'friend',
but we cannot spend an hour to read Gurbani and Sikh history to get to know our Guru and make him our friend?
Isn't it strange how difficult it is difficult to do Rehraas Sahib on time or at all,
but how easy it is to drink a protein shake on time or watch a favourite television drama on time?
Isn't it strange how we send jokes on WhatsApp and they are forwarded right away,
but when we are going to send messages about Waheguru, we think about it twice before we share it with others?
