Family

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa! Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Sometimes I wonder how my family would react if they found out that I was Sikh. According to my intuition, it wouldn't be very good. Sometimes I wonder why Waheguru had me born into a Christian family (a Baptist family at that). Why couldn't I have been born into a Sikh family? It would have been so much easier. But I guess life wasn't meant to be easy. Like the Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji says, pain is the medicine and worldly pleasure is the disease. In order for soldiers to get fit, they must work through the pain of exercise. No pain, no gain. In the same way, Sikhs and especially the Khalsa must get into shape in order to fight against injustice. I don't know, I just wish that I could openly be a Sikh.

Update (7/21/18): If only you would have known the pain you would go through. But at the same time, you'll come to find it was totally worth it.
