Sakhi Series :- 127 ( Two Mice )

Two Mice

A man was walking along the dusty footpath one day. As he was walking he fell into a well!! It was quite a deep well but it had no water inside it, hence there was no way out! The man thought to himself "how am I going to get myself out of this well?" Then all of a sudden, a long rope came down from above...

The man thought "what a stroke of luck!! Thank God for that!!" The man then proceeded to climb the rope, he felt so glad that he had been given a way to get out. He was halfway up the rope, then, he felt something on his cheek, it started trickling into his mouth. "Hmmm..." he thought, "this tastes like honey!!" He hung onto the rope and started to eat the honey. All the while, he did not notice that there were two mice at the top of the well knowing/biting at the rope.

One mouse was black and the other white. The man carried on eating the honey until he was completely satisfied, and then proceeded to climb the rope. As he climbed further, the mice carried on knawing at the rope, first the white mouse then the black mouse. The man was close to the top then SNAP! the rope broke and he fell back into the well where he stayed forever...

And the moral of the Story??

Everything in this story represents something....this is what the each thing represents...

The man represents us as souls

The well represents birth/life

The rope represents Simran (remembrance of God)

The Honey represents distraction from Simran

The mice (Black and White) represent Night and Day

If you read the story again you will see that Night and Day are decreasing your chance to do Simran and how we waste our lives for short term pleasures (Honey). Then before we know it it's too late

waheguru !! waheguru !! Waheguru !! Waheguru !! Waheguru !

Sakhi Series :- 126 ( The Gyani Ji And The Quarter )

The Gyani Ji And The Quarter, a little test from Guru Maharaj

Several years ago, a gyanee from out-of-town accepted a call to a Gurdwara in UK

Some weeks after he arrived, he had an occasion to ride the bus from his home to the downtown area. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him a quarter too much change. As he considered what to do, he thought to himself, "You'd better give the quarter back. It would be wrong to keep it." Then he thought, "Oh, forget it, it's only a quarter. Who would worry about this little amount?

Anyway, the bus company gets too much fare; they will never miss it.
Accept it as a gift from Vaheguru and keep quiet.

When his stop came, he paused momentarily at the door, then he handed the quarter to the driver and said, "Here, you gave me too much change."

The driver, with a smile, replied, "Aren't you the new Gyanee in town? I have been thinking a lot lately about going somewhere to worship. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change. I ' ll see you at gurdwara on Sunday."

When the Gyanee stepped off of the bus, he literally grabbed the nearest light pole, held on, and said, "Oh Vaheguru, I almost sold your Son for a quarter."
