Sikhi is an extremely deep, spiritually conceptual way of life. However we live in an age where people amass engross themselves in countless short-term pleasures offered by the world. Spirituality does not categorise with these types of pleasures: therefore easily overlooked and not considered of any importance in life (until the messenger of death approaches).
Everyone wishes for happiness in life.
At times true happiness is found/experienced but for the sake of worldly pleasures, it is easily made secondary until sorrow in one form affects the individual.
Personally, I feel happy as ever during a rehansbai (all night) keertan event, or attending nitnem programmes with gursikhs where I can easily convince my mind nothing other can satisfy more.
As mentioned we live in a time where spirituality is secondary and so people are uninterested. Having been approached by friends and the general public about my practices I have found talking with a common sense, or rather concious-minded approach to be most effective. The aim of Sikh Sense is to genreally just provide a few moments of thoughts....enjoy :)

Question: Why do you grow your hair?
Answer: I don't grow my hair, why do YOU cut your hair?
(Who's the one without understanding whereby practices assimilate to a ritual?)
