A Prayer from Sikhism
The hot winds do not touch me;
The supreme Lord is my Sanctuary.
I am surrounded by the protection of God;
Pain does not touch me
I have met with the perfect True Guru,
Who has brought about this happy consummation.
He has given me the cure-all of the Name of the Lord
And I am attuned to the One.
I am saved and protected by the Protector,
And all my troubles are dispelled.
Says Nanak, he has become merciful to me;
God has blessed me with His All-powerful Support.

In silence find a comfortable position on the bench you are sitting on and slowly close your eyes. Let your physical and mental bodies go in a state of relaxation! Let all your thoughts go away, go far away from you! Empty your mind and let all the organs of your body relax; let your heart beat gently and slow! Feel an energy of Love fill your entire body! You are now ready to explore and enjoy this journey that was prepared especially for you!
An energy of bright white light is now approaching you and it asks you to follow it. Immediately you start rising up, immediately you start flying higher and higher. See yourself going through many different layers of coloured energies!
First you go through a strong and magnificent RED. This red energy makes you feel want to live in this beautiful world made by the hand of the Lord and which man is too blind to see and appreciate its beauty!
As you exit from the Red energy layer you now start going through a great ORANGE coloured layer. The Orange energy clears your mind, it helps you understand who you really are and what you really want from your life, it pushes you to continue your journey through your destined path.
See yourself now going through a YELLOW energy layer. The Yellow energy brings you knowledge and understanding; it helps you face your challenges with peace and harmony! You now feel light; the heavy weight you were carrying has fallen down from your shoulders! You are now Free!
You now enter a beautiful and shining GREEN coloured energy layer. See this Green energy coming all over you, covering your whole body like a coat and bringing you protection and Love from the Eternal One. This energy of unconditional Love fills up your heart with compassion, forgiveness and trust. You feel different now; you feel a new person!
With this belief you continue flying higher and higher until a figure appears in front of you. You immediately recognise this figure to be your Guide; this loving soul that follows you everywhere you go; that gives you constantly love, that whispers in your ear or sends you thoughts of guidance and is always there for you and only you. Remember you need to ask for your Guide’s help as they cannot interfere in your life without your permission.
Look at your Guide, is smiling to you, is happy to be with you once more, and tells you how hard is working and how much is praying for you, to help you alleviate the difficult moments you are going through. Your Guide helps you to face pain with courage and a smile on your face, to persevere in your destined path. Your guide reminds you always to laugh and laugh as laughter is the best medicine that can make you well, that can make you shine and show how great you are.
Your Guide now takes you to a garden nearby. The garden is full of flowers, beautiful and colourful flowers, flowers you have never seen on the physical plane. In the middle of the garden there is a fountain made of white marble. On the other side of the garden there is also a white marble bench. There is so much peace and harmony in that garden! Both your Guide and yourself sit on that marble bench to enjoy that peaceful atmosphere and allow all those harmonious and healing energies fill up your body!
As you are sitting on that bench your thoughts go to all your friends and loved ones who need help and support and could not be with us here today. You present them to the Guides and you ask that they extend to them too these healing energies. Bring these friends in your mind now and send them your love and healing….
We thank you Eternal Energy of Love for the healing energies we have all experienced. We pray that we will be able now to heal our bodies, our minds and our souls!
Your guide now tells you that the time has come for you to return back to your physical level. Your Guide takes you by the hand and takes you slowly to the edge of this beautiful garden. There you thank your Guide for this beautiful and healing experience prepared just for you. With a hug you say your goodbyes and you start your descent. You go first through the Green band of energy, then through the Yellow, through the Orange and finally through the Red. Now you are back in this hall. Slowly make your way back to the place you were sitting on.
Now you feel heavier and heavier. You find yourself sitting on the bench you have started from. Your feet are touching the ground, you feel your hands on your laps, your breath is stronger now! When you are ready open your eyes and welcome back.
The Four Smart Students
One night four college students were out partying late night and didn’t study for the test which was scheduled for the next day. In the morning, they thought of a plan.
They made themselves look dirty with grease and dirt.
Then they went to the Dean and said they had gone out to a wedding last night and on their way back the tire of their car burst and they had to push the car all the way back. So, they were in no condition to take the test.
The Dean thought for a minute and said they can have the re-test after 3 days. They thanked him and said they will be ready by that time.
On the third day, they appeared before the Dean. The Dean said that as this was a Special Condition Test, all four were required to sit in separate classrooms for the test. They all agreed as they had prepared well in the last 3 days.
The Test consisted of only 2 questions with the total of 100 Points:
1) Your Name? __________ (1 Point)
2) Which tire burst? __________ (99 Points)
Dear friends either take responsibility or you will learn your lesson!
While proudly showing off his new apartment to friends, a
college student led the way into the den. "What is the big
brass gong and hammer for?" one of his friends asked.
"That is the talking clock," the man replied.
"How's it work?"
"Watch," the man said and proceeded to give the gong an ear shattering pound with the hammer.
Suddenly, someone screamed from the other side of the wall,
"Knock it off, you idiot! It's two o'clock in the morning!"
