Fragmented dream


 

We are splinters
Of the time
Broken fragments
Of a mirror
Once as smooth as a lake
Leaving a trace
To the past
Spreading life behind
Detaching from moments
A trail of living stars
Scattered
Swimming in limited senses
Searching for what we are
Standing at the edge
Of the moment
Looking back in the abyss
The mystery of night
Seeing life fading away
Somewhere, elsewhere

Our boat rowing
Towards the horizon
Of a purple morning
Ahead
Collecting colours
In the breath of now
Reflected in fragments
Lost
Gathering life
In the vortex
Beyond time
To dream completion…

Touch of eternity


 

Cosmic winds
Touch of eternity
Coat of time
Contractions of joy and grief

Sliding seconds
From moment to moment
Breathing, weaving life
Promise of happiness

Secret silence
Inaudibly singing
Dancing naked
Penetrating the heart

Thoughts on the run
Seek refuge
Pulsate and tremble
Want to rise up

Touched depth
Whispers in echoes
Spirit anchored in causes
Birth of the hour

Light in fraction
Smell of a dream
Derailed time
A touch of eternity

Quote: How to develop love for God or for the competent Master (mouth-piece of God) – By Sant Kirpal Singh Ji


 
Excerpt from the book: “Morning talks” – By Sant Kirpal Singh
 

 
Guru Har Govind said that whoever should recite from the Jap Ji with no other thought intervening during the time that the verse was being recited, would be given his heart’s desire. One man came forward and said that he would recite. He began reciting and just before he was nearing the end, he thought to himself, “I wonder what the Guru will give me?” He remembered the Arabian horse that had been given to the Guru and thought that it should be given to him. When he completed the recitation, the Guru ordered that the horse be given to him. He then turned to the man and said, “You poor fellow, you did not know what I was going to give you . I was going to give you my very own place.” So it is not for you to judge things and request what you want, but it is for Him to see what is really in your best interests. How can you develop love? First, just develop those attributes which are in the Master. If He is a good painter, then develop painting. If He is a good singer, then develop singing. Our Master used to have wells dug for the good of the people at large. So those people than began to dig wells for Him and He was pleased. He wanted selfless servants who would never utter any word to Him about what they were doing for the Master. He was a very plain spoken man. Those who went to Him and said, “Master, I have committed this or that sin,” He would say, “All right,” and forgive them. But those who concealed their shortcomings from Him would lose out. When we go to the Master, we simply think that He does not know anything. But at the heart of hearts He knows what you say. As I was telling you yesterday, just like something in a glass jar, He sees what is in us. Even if you try to conceal it, He still sees. So we should go to the Master with very clean hearts, with love for Him, with all due deference for Him. Then naturally, He will give His own Self to you. So this is how we can develop love for the Master, for the God in Him. The attributes that He has developed in Him, you should try and develop in you. What are they? He wants love, no show, strict obedience to what He says. Once He says something, obey Him. Obey Him literally. While developing these things you will all the time be having the sweet remembrance of the Master within and also outwardly. It is for the Master to see what He has to give. He has come only to give Life. He has no other business. He is Life, Light and Love. He can give you these qualities only when you have become receptive and there is nothing that stands between you and Him. The attributes of God are reflected in Him. If you just adopt those attributes in your own life, then you will be loved by the Master and by the God in Him. As Christ said, “Those who love me, will be loved by my Father, and whom my Father loves, I manifest myself to him”. All Masters have said the same thing.
 
 

Quote: An example of true love – told by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

Excerpt from the book: “Morning talks” by Sant Kirpal Singh Ji


 

Lord Rama was exiled for fourteen years, and one woman called Shivri, who was living in the wilderness to where Lord Rama was exiled, heard that he was coming. She thought to herself that he would be coming bare footed and that the thorns would prick his feet. So she began clearing the way of all thorns. Love is developed not necessarily by seeing, but also by hearing. She also wondered what she would offer him to eat. In the wilderness there wasn’t much, only berries. So she started picking the berries, tasted each one of them, and kept only the sweet berries. There were also some great yogis living in the wilderness but Lord Rama never went to them first. He went to Shivri, who cleared the way for him so that the thorns would not hurt his feet, and who had kept the half eaten berries only for the sake of knowing those which were sweet and those which were sour. So love knows no law. After Rama had been to Shivri, he went to visit the yogis. There happened to be a pond where the yogis lived which was full of insects and the yogis asked Lord Rama to wash his feet in the pond, so that the insects would be cleared out. Lord Rama declined and said, “No, you are great yogis, it is better if you wash your feet in the pond, and it will then be cleared.” All of the yogis put their wash water into the pond but it was not cleared of the insects. The yogis then said, “You are Lord Rama, if you wash your feet in the pond it will surely be cleared.” “All right,” said Lord Rama, “We’ll try it.” He washed his feet in the pond but it still was not cleared. Lord Rama then told the yogis to wash the feet of Shivri (whom they disliked) and when they washed her feet and put the wash water into the pond, it was cleared. Those who love God, love the Master, the God in Him of course. It is not matter of show. That very power is within you and knows every act of yours, what you are doing and why. He knows the very trend of your thoughts. Love knows no show. Love knows service and sacrifice. The outward symbol of love is a sweet tongue, imbued with humility. When you have developed that love, what should you do? You must have patience, perseverance and go on with it. Just like a moth which burns itself on the flame of a candle but never makes any sound. So those who want to love God should not care for their name or fame, honour, this or that thing. They should leave every greatness that they have got physically outside, and lay down at His feet. If they lose their life in sacrifice, even then they won’t mention it. So this is a very delicate question, I would say. Those who have love for God, or the God-in-man, well, this is a relation between you and the God in Him and nobody else. You have to develop it. For that you must have perseverance. It takes time. The work of the servant is to do work, that’s all. It is for the Master to see what He has to give to him.

 

Gate to a new dawn


 

Scared time
Wounds in the night
Bleeding past
With little light

Searching for happiness
Peaceful understanding
Living dreams
Side by side

Forward in looking
To feel the freedom
In the presence
In deep thankfulness

Thirst in the desert
For drops of love
Ready to still a heart
In the dawn of light

Unity of Man – Sant Kirpal Singh

The intention of the movement Unity of Man is to inspire man by the ideal set by Sant Kirpal Singh: Be good – Do good – Be one.

It invites all to unite in order to find out about the spiritual base of human nature and to promote a spirit of oneness.

The name Unity of Man carries the core message of Sant Kirpal Singh:
This human birth is our chance to realize the great truth of the oneness of life vibrating in the universe – Unity already exists, we only have forgotten it.

Respect for the whole creation and love and tolerance for each human being regardless of colour, creed or nationality are the practical shape of this ideal.

There is one hope for the world, and this hope lies in the spiritual link from man to man and nation to nation. This genuine hope will bring us together.

The problems of the world are not of political, but of spiritual nature, so we have to find the solution on the spiritual level, on the level of consciousness. The change will begin from man’s heart.

Deceived and fooled


 

 

You led me to the market of the world
Bazaar of trade and desires
You showed me treasures
Beauties, attractions

No breath without show
Attention without direction
I got stuck in my senses
Deceived by the splendour of the world

You came with promises
To find everlasting happiness
But your happiness is bound
At the post of time

Everything passes like sand blown away
And you still say:
This is my home, my wealth of the world
Yes, it is your house, built on sand

You pretend: eternal happiness
Eternal home that falls apart in your hands
Breaks to empty illusions
You deceive, seduce, kidnap

The truth is not outside
It is within me
That you trample all over
With lies besmeared

You live for my death
Though you get all the strength from me
You go the way out
And not the way in

You are my constant companion
Shadow of my light
You control, you direct
Set directions

Time to change roles
Since you are a bad master
But a good servant
So follow me, my mind…

“Man! Know Thyself” – by Sant Kirpal Singh – Part 4


Dear friends,

Life Beyond Death

Saints say that nature has designed man to leave his physical body at will, transcend to higher planes, and then return to the body. They help each aspirant personally and each receives a practical experience, however little it may be, during the very first sitting at the time of Initiation. A person who is competent to give a man this personal experience of withdrawal or separation (temporary) from the body, and who can thus put him on the way back to God, is a genuine Master, Saint, or Satguru. The heads of different religious organizations were intended to do just this, but we may judge for ourselves their efficacy today.

The first-hand experience we receive, through the kindness of a real Saint, is in itself the solution to the problem of death. According to the Bible, “Unless you are born anew, you cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.” So to be born anew is to leave one’s body and enter into the beyond – a transition from the physical to the astral plane. Some day we have to leave this temporary structure which, like a building of bricks and mortar, deteriorates with time. There is no appeal to the laws of nature against the “death sentence.” We fear death because of the agony and suffering which it brings, and also because of the uncertainty that lies ahead in the beyond. We fear illness because it brings us near death’s door; so we struggle to live though we know that our end is certain. No soothing words from doctors, friends, relatives or priests can bring peace and comfort to our minds at the time that nature’s destructive process commences. This is the natural course of things and we cannot deceive nature.

What then is the remedy? There is only one way out of this abyss of despair: to adopt and accustom ourselves, during our lifetime, to nature’s process of the withdrawal of the spirit current from the body, while still in a conscious state. This may be done with the help of a Master, and may be accomplished without any suffering or trouble whatever. This is not only a possibility but is a remarkable fact. Our joy will know no bounds when we come into possession of the secret that has baffled man for so many centuries. We become supermen, having possession of a key to peace and heaven, the life of which we had till then only read about in sacred scriptures. Arise, therefore, and awake! before it is too late to put this science into practice. If we observe closely the process of death in a dying man, we see the pupils of his eyes turn upwards a little (afterwards they may return to normal) and then he becomes senseless. But when they draw upwards too much, he dies. Life ebbs out via the root of the eyes and becomes disconnected from the ties of the physical body and the sense organs. Knowledge of this process and the method by which we may travel this way during our very lifetime is the solution to the problem of death. No physical exercises are necessary; there are no drugs to swallow and no blind faith to cultivate. The mystery of life and death is solved easily with the help of a Master Saint, who will give you an experience of the process and put you on the highway to the inner realms. Even when acting indirectly through an authorized agent, He still remains the responsible Power. Distance is immaterial to the Masters.

What is there to be gained by this process? This cannot be described in words. At the time of Initiation, the aspirant sees the real light within him, whereas normally the inner eye is covered by a thick veil of darkness. He then realizes that the tradition of the lighted candle found in churches and temples is to remind him of the Divine Light of Heaven within. This light grows to the radiance of several suns put together as he advances on the way. He understands that the unceasing internal sound he contacts within is the divine link called “Word” by Christ, Kalma and Nida-i-Asmani in the Koran, Nad in the Vedas, Udgit in the Upanishads, Sarosha by the Zoroastrians, and Naam and Shabd by the Saints and Masters. In time, he meets the Master within, talks to Him face to face, and is henceforth certain of His grace, guidance and protection wherever he may go, even to the other end of the world. With such evident proofs before him, he is now confident of himself and of the science. Only then can he be called a theist in the true sense of the word, and can smile at those who talk of religion as a fool’s paradise, a phantom conjured up by crafty priests, and the opium of the masses. He has found a sure ingress through the doorway of heaven in this life, and is on the threshold of viewing, both internally and externally, the secrets of nature. He is truly “knocking at the door of heaven” or “tapping inside.” Words of opposition cannot shake his faith in the science as the Master guides him onward. Death becomes a voluntary process. Past, present and future merge into one, and he grasps the incontestable truth, the essence of being, in the palm of his hand. Liberated from the body, which now appears as a husk without the kernel, he knows that he is soul, an inseparable part of the Eternal Spirit, and so he presses onward to his original source. The world appears as a dream to him, but under the instructions from his Master, he returns to his mundane life, wise and fearless in the discharge of his duties.

 

 

Labyrinth of mind


 

We get lost in ourselves
Stuck in questions
Answers in speculations
Fight for point of views

We speak much
With empty words
We appear with masks
With fear in tasks

We run after pleasures
To keep us entertained
We talk about love and happiness
And lose us in words

Let the silence speak
Arising from the heart
Where no food is given
To the labyrinth of mind

Collective Consciousness


 

 

As the drop is not separated
From the ocean of all being
So is not man from man

Thoughts interact between people
In realms of subconsciouness
Communicate unknowingly

Synchronities demonstrate presence
In neural higher networks
Connect man through time and space

Living unities turn to
Higher thoughts, combined
As an Ocean of life

Reservoir of moving waves
Self-sufficient biosphere
Migrating life impulses

Oneness without a break
Void and abundance intertwined
Timeless, spaceless, formless

Voiceless voice, living light and life

Acted kindness


 

 

 

Sometimes we make a show
Perform a play of theatre
Use friendly words
Pretend humbleness, respect

When life comes to test us
We lose self-control
Are hurt within speculations
React: hurting, punishing

Fired arrows find their goal
Through self-made illusions
Revenge onself for being “hurt”
Self-pleased satisfaction

Words of respect
Crumble, fade away
Reveal the true face
Unmask the show

Our mind has thousands masks…

Spaceships


 

 

We all are spaceships flying
Through space and time
In loneliness and oneness
Searching for Home

Riding on light beams
In the depth of being
Set sail in the wind of time
Collecting answers

Passed by metors and comets
Sometimes struck in pain
Gravity of suffering
Attracked by thousands of planets

Journey through darkness and light
Forwarding life into the open mouth
Of a black hole, a vortex
Beyond death, a new beginning

Pulsars and quarsas
Like lightning storms
Give birth to vessels of light
Stamps of fates

Spaceships rush through the space
A fleet of flying life
Universal symbioses
Part of hyperspace

Hyperspace of no time and space
Eye of eternity, mothership
Stillstand in deep silence
Embraces all life

Karma – three kinds of karma


 


Kirpal Singh

Karma

Original text can be read here:
http://spirituality.unity-of-man.org/en/essentials/karma.html

 

Every action brings about a reaction

We are to understand this principle, this law. If we understand this principle or Law of Karma, then we can come out of it and go back home. Otherwise we’ll keep on coming and going and coming and going. So each cause has an effect. Every action brings about a reaction. Uproot the cause and the effect disappears. This has been done by the Masters who have transcended these laws. But all others are bound by the bonds of karma, which is the root cause of physical existence. Of course, these are very good actions, the reactions of which have given you the manbody. But still we have to be very careful what we do: either we are trying to go back down or back home.

There are three kinds of karma

One kind is called Sanchit. “Sanchit” means “which are stored as yet,” not fructified. So suchlike karmas, you see, from hundreds of births back, are just in store, not yet touched for reaction.

Ever since we have left the house of our Father, ever since we have been sent to the earth, we have been coming and going. Action and reaction has been going on. Some has been paid off by Pralabdha karma. Pralabdha karmas are the karmas which are in fruit, which are fructified, and on which our present existence is based. First, we have got the manbody. That is the result of very high karma, good karma.

So pralabdha is the karma on which our present life is based. It is what is called “fate” or “destiny.” Fate or destiny is a reaction of our past karma which is now in fruit.The third class is Kriyaman, the actions that we do daily. Man is free within certain limits and bound within certain limits.

When you sow a seed, it will bring forth similar seeds

There is action-reaction; then again a reaction; and the thing goes on like that. There’s no end to it. After sowing the grain, a man cannot stop having the harvest – the fruit will come. So there are many actions. Actions are of one kind, but there are three aspects to them. There are certain actions which we are doing now, daily – fresh actions; fresh seeds are sown, you might say. Some have already been sown and are bearing fruit. Others have been sown, but are not yet bearing forth fruit. So there are three kinds of karmas or actions.

Is our destiny predestined?

Our present life depends on those reactions of the past karmas which are bearing fruit. They are called pralabdha karma. On that karma our length of life is based. According to that, some people get children, some die, some are ugly, some are old, some have a give-and-take. This is based on those karmas or seeds which have grown in the past and are now bearing forth fruit in action. This you cannot change.
We are independent within certain limits to do some actions, and we are also bound to some extent

When a railroad line is laid down, the train will run over it. Before you lay down any railroad line, it is up to you to lay it down this way or that way. But once it is laid down, the train will have to run over it. So, as I told you, some karmas are bearing fruit; some we are doing fresh; and others have not yet borne any fruit – that will come up in due course.

So we are independent within certain limits to do some actions, and we are also bound to some extent. Action, reaction, action, reaction goes on – there’s no end to it.

How to overcome the karmas

When a Master meets someone, he does not touch the present reactions which are coming up; for our life is based on that. He lets it alone, he lets it go on. For the future, Master lays down a line of conduct. For the present which is bearing fruit, he gives food to the soul so that it will become strong and there will not be any pinching effect. And for those which are not yet bearing forth fruit, he gives the disciple a contact with God within. By coming in contact with God within – when his inner eye is opened – he sees that He is the doer of all; that we are mere puppets in His hands. He becomes a conscious co-worker of the Divine Plan. The result is that there is no I-hood left. And all those actions which were sown in the past, and are still awaiting fruit, are burned away. Who is there to bear their fruit? So this is the way in which you can escape from the reactions of the past.

When you come in contact with God – when you become a conscious co-worker of the Divine Plan – all karmas which are in store are burned away; just as if you roast seeds in the oven, they won’t grow. And this is the way in which all the karmas are wound up. That is why it is said: “What is the use of going to a Master if these reactions are not ended? If you go to the feet of a lion and are afraid of jackals, what’s the use of going to a lion? This is how the karmas are wound up: first, by prescribing a certain conduct of life; second, by an inner, higher contact.

Truth is ONE


 

One is the truth
Is like the sun
Which embraces us
With her sun-races

Some feel more light
Other less…
We are the ones that separate us
From the sunlight in grades and shades

However, truth is ONE
Eternally and unchangeable
Is beyond time and space
Life and death

God is this truth
Silence of true life
Is light without shadows
Love without spots

Cold as ice


cold as ice

 

Is it clever – to appear clever
And to be paid for it?

Is it clever – to speculate on people
And benefit from them?

Is it clever – to propagate truth
And to hide the lie

Is it clever – to help
And to bath in generousity?

Is it clever – to take
Instead of sharing, giving?

Cleverness that selfishly uses others
Is cold and has no heart

Unity of Man


unity-of-man

 

If we humans face trouble
Merit great suffering
Our humanity awakes
Then we help each other
With open heart
Not asking from where we come
What colour, religion we have
We are then one in distress
Standing together from man to man

Back in our everyday life we fall asleep again
In anonymity, distance, old habits

Foreign people who lay in their arms
Now avoid eye contact

So let us keep this humanity alive
Not just in bad times, but also in good times

Let us be aware of this deep happiness
Of this unique unity – as we are all One
With selfless help any time…
