What is the Mystery Blogger Award?
It’s an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best our there, and they deserve the recognition that they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion. -Okoto Enigma (https://www.okotoenigmasblog.com/my-greatest-creation-yet/)

 

Three things about myself

1.) My thankfulness goes to my Master Sant Kirpal Singh Ji, Dr. Harbhajan Singh and his wife Biji Surinder Kaur who have taught me how to swim in the ocean of life.
2.) Helping people in need makes me happy, live and do for others (not according to their wishes, but everything that is essential with regard to their body, mind and soul).
3.) I love to be in the nature and feel one with it.

 

Answers:

1.) Where would you like to travel to?
I like to travel to Kirpal Sagar, a place open for the whole mankind. There, noone is anymore separated by religion, skin-colour, Nation or culture – all are welcome there and all religions are peacefully under one roof in the middle of Kirpal Sagar where there is a holy pond with a marble ship symbolizing the journey across the Ocean of Life with the symbols of all world religions on top of it. Not onyl social work can be done there selflessly, but one can also feel the beautiful atmosphere of oneness and unity and the spiritual development in one’s heart.
There, not just theory is taught, to become a real human being, but everyhting is put into practice there.

For more and detailed information about Kirpal Sagar I would like to refer you to this link:

http://uom.kirpal-sagar.org/index.php/en/

 

 

2.) What is the one favorite food you like to eat?
There are two ways of taking food to us. The food for the soul and the food for the body and mind. So I prefer to give first food to the soul when sitting night time in deep silence and practising: Surat (attention) Shabd (Guru, Master, God) Yoga in its two aspects: light and sound. The outer religions point to light and sound (candle light, bell for example) as reflections of what is inside us. And in the Bible we have: “”If thine eye be single thy whole body shall be full of Light.” And what is this single eye? – It is the Third Eye, Shiv Netra, Divya Chakshu, Tisra Til, or Brahmrendra in other names, which is the only door that leads inside, all other doors of the human body lead outside. So from within we receive parshad or food for the soul. However, our soul does not get food from the astral, causal or even super-causal plane – as this still is mixed with matter. This kind of food goes to our mind and does not help us on the true path of spirituality.

Quote:
“It is the message of all religions that man is able to attain Godknowledge by ‘tapping’ inside. Saints, mystics of East and West, at all times, got inner knowledge by way of contemplation and meditation. This is why the human body is called ‘temple of God’ “.

Food for my body is vegetarian food, preferable fresh vegetables and fruit and even simple meals.

Quote: (from: http://www.kirpalsingh-teachings.org/cn/talks/504-spirituality-what-it-is46.html)
God is Wordless, Nameless, Ashabd. When He came into being, into expression, that Absolute God wanted: “I wish to be many”, there was vibration that resulted in two things: Light and Sound.

God is Light. God is Music of the Spheres – Nada.

These are the two outward expressions of God-into-expression-Power which is controlling the whole universe and also controlling us in the body. That can be contacted when we rise above body-consciousness to the seat of the soul in the body, which is at the back of the eyes. So, it is a practical question which can be demonstrated. When you see for your own self what is what, then on­ly you can be convinced, not before.

Man is afraid of dying for two reasons: The first thing, we do not know how to leave the body. We are not accustomed to it. We are so much attached out­side that we cannot dare to withdraw from outside. Sometimes we wish to withdraw from outside, but we are so much identified with the outside things, even if you want to leave, you cannot leave, you see? So, for that reason we have to withdraw from outside. If you know how to leave the body day to day, if you die daily as Saint Paul said, if you take the cross daily (the upright stand­ing man with his arms stretched out shows the cross), then death becomes a matter of joy. Because all glory and beauty lies within you. The astral plane is more beautiful than the outer physical plane; causal is still more, and high­er plane is still higher beauty and higher bliss. So, once a man has an expe­rience of that, he would like to go, any time even, he would possibly go. Now as you are not in contact with that, mind is just given up to the outward en­joyments and used to that little bliss.                                                                                                                                                  By Sant Kirpal Singh

 

3.) What made you start blogging
When I started “blogging” I have just used the possiblity to store all my digital photos and poems on the internet using it as a kind of “cloud”. Last year my real blogging began to share spiritual wisdom, inner richness and experience with all bloggers who have similiar interests.

4.) If you could meet one person in the world who would it be?
God Himself is able to materialize in any form, so I wish to meet Him in the pole of a human form. In this connection I would like to share a short story:

An atheist once put a notice on his door: God is “nowhere”. When he lay dying in his room, a small child appeared and changed only one letter “God is now here!” came to the door and read aloud the notice: God is now here. The dying man replied from inside, “Yes, child, I do see now that there is some power.”

5.) What is your favorite hobby?
In fact I have quite many hobbies: such as Digital Art, writing Poems and Aphorisms, reading Spiritual Books (carefully chosen ones), Languages (I studied 5 languages), Travelling, Classic Music and Oldies, Graphology and Genealogy, Cooking. Other interests: Helping people at home and abroad (in India). The favourite one is: Helping people.

 

5 Questions for you:

1.) If a King puts many precious things in front (money, land, precious diamonds, a high ranking position) of you and he asks you that you can choose what to take – what would it be?

2.) How can we change ourselves to contribute to a better world?

3.) What is your purpose of life?

4.) Our society produces good and bad things. What can be improved?

5.) Where is the difference between lauging and crying? When you are happy you can also shed tears of happiness and sometimes we laugh even out of insecurity…

This quote challenge involves posting 2 quotes for a selected topic of the day, and then selecting 3 other bloggers to take part if they desire to do so. The topic of the day from Amira’s blog is “Hope“. Amira has shared profound quotes for this topic on her blog, which can be found here:

https://bodyandsoulnourishmentblog.wordpress.com/2018/06/27/3-2-1-quote-me-challenge/?frame-nonce=5d6c0b94b4&preview=true&iframe=true&revision=5&calypso_token=7e9d84bf-91f2-4d12-90c8-959858e89a69

 

Quote-Me-Challenge-Rules” are:

Rules: 3.2.1 Quote Me!
1. Thank the Selector
2. Post 2 quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day.
3. Select 3 bloggers to take part in “3.2.1 Quote Me!”

Thanks again, dear Amira! 🙂

 

My today’s two quotes, topic: Hope

1. “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.” – by John Lennon.

2. “Do not go to the garden of flowers!
O Friend! Go not there;
In your body is the garden of flowers.
Take your seat on the thousand petals of the lotus,
and there gaze on the Infinite Beauty.” – by Kabir (Songs of Kabir – Translated by Tagore)

 

Some words about the topic: “Hope-quotes”

John Lennon expresses in his quote his “Dream of Oneness and Unity” in our world – this is just what lies in my heart. The hope that we all understand us as One and when we all belong together – should we still fight, should we still have not enough respect and trust to each other, threaten us, separate us from Oneness? We should learn to understand that we all sit in the same boat. If each of us takes care (responsibility) that no water will come into our boat, then we surely can take our trip peacefully on the ocean of life in harmony and respect with all nations and religions, with all human beings under one roof: Humanity!

As Kabir puts it: “The Beauty lies within” – and we all try to find our happiness outside which is like: The fish is in the ocean searching for the water…

As Amira has beautifully written it: “Keep your hope flame alive and pass on the torch of HOPE to others!”- to add something to it: “With the flame of one candle thousands and thousands can be lit.”

 

My three nominees are:

1. MG Wells
2. A Tangle of Weeds
3. Akriti – doodlessworld

Wishing you all, dear bloggers, sunshine and peace in your heart
Didi

 

 

Thank you very much dear Maysa for nominating me for the Liebster Award


 

 

Thank you very much, dear Maysa Rose for the nomination of “The Liebster Award”. Dear bloggers, I would like to recommend her blog to you: Maysa is quite an active person, loves dancing and blogging and has a good sense of humour. So please, take the opportunity to pay a visit to her blog-side

~ Rules ~
Acknowledge the blog that nominated you for the award
Answer the questions they gave you
Give 11 fun facts about yourself
Give them 11 questions to answer
Nominate 11 other bloggers for the award

~ Questions for Me ~
1: If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be?
For me the most important place where I travel to regularly is Kirpal Sagar. This place is a very unique place for the whole mankind, where all religions are peacefully under one roof. where spirituality is not only put in mere words but where it can be practised to become a real human being through selfless service for mankind, land and own soul. It was Sant
Kirpal Singh Ji, who has started this project which was then carried out by His disciples: Dr. Harbhan Singh and his wife Biji Surinder Kaur. Today one can see that it has become a small paradies, but in future it will be a pilgrimage town for millions coming from all over the world. Beside man-making the aspect of unity of man that we are all one, is taught and practised there as well.

2: What is the story behind your blog name?
Didis Art Design or to write it correctly: Didi’s Art Design – derives from my nickname: it has its focus on digital art and spiritual content through poems and aphorisms.

3: Do you have a summer goal? If so, what is it?
Not really a summer goal, but my goal is to become a better person and to weed out shortcomings, one by one… and not to see the mistakes in others, but the good sides in them.

4: What are your top three song obsessions right now?
Inside: the inner music, the divine sound that penetrates and vibrates through the whole creation, also called: “music of the spheres”. Quote (exert from the book “Naam or Word” written by Sant Kirpal Singh): “This Sound develops through ten different aspects because of Its manifestation through the different tubes of the body (Nadis); it sounds like thunder, the roaring of the sea, the jingling of bells, running water, the buzzing of bees, the twittering of sparrows, the Vina, the whistle, or the sound of Shankha (Conch) until it finally becomes Hu the most sacred of all sounds. This Sound Hu is the beginning and end of all sounds, be they from man, bird, beast, or thing.” – Therefore these sounds are the outer symbols which we find in the religions (bell, gong, conch etc.).
Outside: Oldies and classic music, Indian shabads.

5: What stresses you out the most throughout the year? – my own mind as it always tries to usurp the reins and only through constant checking that it does not move and spreads itself in thoughts or words or deeds in violence, within the 5 thieves: like lust, hate, greed, attachment and ego. Therefore it is said: think twice before you speak something out… as all bears karmic fruit. And this is a way to become more and more conscious of oneself: “Man know thyself” within the developing heart-thought (language of the heart) that there is only One Doer, God that we are all One in Him. The birds flying over countries – are they separated by man-made borders? by names given by man? – no, surely not. We are the birds (our souls) in the same air, in One air… So mind is a good helper or servant for the soul, but a bad master…

6: What is your dream job?
To be a tool in the hand of God.

7: How long have you been blogging?
I have started maybe 7 years ago or even more, but at that time I was rather inactive and started to be active last year in January.

8: Do you have a t.v series that you just can’t miss?
No, I very seldom watch TV.

9: What is your favorite thing to do (other than blog)?
Going to India, Kirpal Sagar to help build up Kirpal Sagar and support the poor and needy people.

10: What inspired you to begin your blog?
When starting opening this blog I have rather used it as a kind of “cloud” to keep my poems and digial art save.

11: Is there a quote that is special to you?
Yes. When my Master Sant Kirpal Singh Ji went to America many years ago, He was asked in a show how He would describe in a few words the universal teaching of competent Masters.
He answerwered: “Be Good, Do Good and Be One” – living in oneness lets us adopt a new angle of view – we no longer see things separated (as our outward senses are doing – duality) but we come to understand that all is connected, all is ONE – then how can we be the Doers? Only our Ego, our Mind makes us think we are the Doer. In Oneness, thus there is only ONE, there can only be ONE DOER – that’s why we live in a huge illusion… The shadow thinks it is moving, but it is the light that moves the shadow…

~ 11 Fun Facts About Me ~
1. Already when I was young I often was absent-minded and friends and parents called me therefore: “Absent-minded professor” – so when I was an adult once it happened to me that I was in a hurry. I had to reach a bus at a certain time. However, I grabbed the trash bags from the house and hurried. At first I should have stopped at trash place to get rid of the trash bags. However, I have forgotten it, saw my bus coming and ran with both trash bag to the bus and entered the bus. Suddenly I became aware that I still had my trash bags with me… LOL

2. As my nick name is Didi, it sometimes happens that people think I am woman (Didi, for example, means elder sister in India) – but I do not see it as a problem, its just a funny thing 🙂

3. Whenever you always enter the metro from one side, you nearly automatically enter blindly the metro (without thinking) to bring you to a certain destination, but beware of entering the metro from the other side… Well, I ended up to the opposite end where I did not want to go to… LOL

4. I like children very much. So once I asked my grandchild (to be a bit funny to her): Do you happen to know where Selma is? (her name is Selma). She was then at the age of a bit over 3 years. She watched first a bit confused but then turned her look to the nearby table and answered: “Perhaps she is under the table…” – that was more than amusing – to give an answer like that at such an age.

5. I love languages and the best language for communication is: the language of the heart – there we find no borders beween us people.

6. I love to laugh and often I feel the child in me. My grandmom used to say: “Didi, we never get you grown up…”

7. Laughing is really contagious: Once I was with a friend in a metro and he told me something really funny – we both had to burst out laughing with tears shedding. People around us started to laugh too…

8. When I was young I used to practise acrobatic position without know what I was doing. Later when I practised Hatha Yoga I became aware that all “asanas”, even really complicated asanas turned out to be yoga postions.

9. When I entered the Indian country for the first time, I smelled the air which deeply reminded me of something that I did not experienced, here in this life. The air smelled like old moist blankets, a bit smoky – a very unique smell from which I was sure that I have not smelled this kind of smell throughout my present life. In this connection: My Master used to say: “You are all old disciples of different competent Masters – no new one has come so far…”

10. As I love it to help and support people (it’s not that I in me but that divine power in me that wants to help), I have asked the local priest here to be of help to lonesome people: So I got an address of a person who had already had 3 brain strokes and is a bit lonesome too. We got in contact and exchange our thoughts and words regularly since then. We became good friends.

11. My search for God, for the truth was not straight lined. As a young child I was taught to pray. When I reached puberty, I had all my doubts that there is a God existing, a loving Father who cares for His children. I saw wars and violence, I saw the threats with which churches have threatened people and children: “when you do this and that you will go to hell…” People themselves had not divine love in them, compassion, instead there were competitions between religions, each of them claimed to have the right religion and what they did: they developed aversions against people who thought differently, they made a separation between themselves and them, created borders. This all lead me to be an atheist (for some years). I started to read a lot of philosophies, old Greek philosophers, Nietzsche, Kant, Schopenhauer, Hegel etc… and yet it did not please me, I could not find the salt in the soup, the water of life, the bread of life. Then a time came I started to do yoga and read spiritual books – and then a time came where I was connected with Unity of Man – a movement of conscious people who do not see the fault and suffering in a punishing God, but who see that we all are one in Him, no matter which religion we belong to, or nation, or skin-colour – we all are His children. With our free will (which is limited) we always have the choice which direction we go, what we do, what we speak and write, even what we think. There is a divine law in it: The karmic law – “cause and effect” and the Bible tells us: “What you sow you have to reap…” – so that we see a world like this with all its suffering in it – we all have caused it, with our thoughts and words – it is not God who has created it. God made man and man made religions… Karma also means to see everything in a much wider horizont – then we can also understand why there are rich and poor people, why a person suffers less while another suffers much – this all is connected to the many lives we already lived through and our suffering is nothing than a paying back of commited debts… so we are happy today and tomorrow we suffer again – these are the karmic waves which touch us all, which are a mirror of our own deeds, thoughts and words. Sant Kirpal Singh says:
“Stay in your own religion, no need to change, no need to dig a new well of religion – and become a good Christian, a good Moslem, a good Hindu etc…” and this means also: everything that separates us from Him or from other people should be put in ONENESS – then the veil of separation will disappear…

Three things about myself

1.) My thankfulness goes to my Master Sant Kirpal Singh Ji, Dr. Harbhajan Singh and his wife Biji Surinder Kaur who have taught me how to swim in the ocean of life.
2.) Helping people in need makes me happy, live and do for others (not according to their wishes, but everything that is essential with regard to their body, mind and soul).
3.) I am a vegetarian.

 

Answers:

1.) About what do you wonder?
I wonder about mankind’s real history – as we were taught, it does not really meet the reality…

2.) If you could only wear one color, which would you choose and why?
I would chose “white” as this is useful when it is really warm and allows you to keep such clothes always clean as otherwise each spot can be seen easily. White and yellow are divine colours as well.

3.) What type of books do you like to read?
I love to read books by the compentent Master, writen by Sant Kirpal Singh: “For example: “The crown of life” (this book explains the different most common yoga types and how far they reach), “Mystery of death” – it explains in details what happens with us after leaving the body – and this can only one explain who has made such inner experiences. Then also books from Kabir: “The Anurak Sagar” – it deals about how our world came into being and gives excellent description of the purpose of life for those who are more intellectually thinking. Another book by Kabir: “The Dialogues of Kabir” – Also a spiritual treasure to gain understanding over our purpose of life, the higher values of life.

4.) What snack do you have to have in your house??
I do not have something special that I have to have in my house, but what I have is all vegetarian food.

5.) If you could have a “wake up” song, which would you want it to be?
My “wake up” song is the inner music of the sphere – this is really a “wake up” song…

 

5 Questions for you:

1.) What is most important for you?
2.) How to improve our world with more harmony?
3.) We see a few rich and very rich people in the world and in opposite many many poor people – what can be done to distribute the money more fairly?
4.) What are the main reasons of egoism?
5.) If you were a king or queen how would you treat your people?
