Clenched fist


 

There is a huge difference
If you want to hurt someone
Or someone was hurt by mistake
Without the intention to hurt

Then the mistake
Becomes violent
In response…

An escalation founded
On misunderstandings…

How much violence we see in the world
Based on misunderstandings?

They cannot be mistaken…


 

When many people do the same
It is not the guaranty
That this is the right thing
What they are doing

Truth cannot be backed
By a large amount of people
Based on quantities
But founded on qualities

In this way many are mislead
Inspite of their argument:
Many cannot be mistaken…

Blessed are those with right understanding…

God and the world


 

World, a permanent change
Identified body
Journey into abyss
Shadow of light

Eternal God
Unity of all
Life in His breath
Sun without shadow

Worldly love
Crazy attached to pieces
Life in mirrors
Broken in fragments

Conscious love
All in One
Egoless giving
Compassionate Oneness

Worldly life conditioned
Sharing of one’s own
While divine light
Lives in service thankfully

What is God, and how can we know Him? (Part 1) – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

 

My dear friends,

Today I would like to share with you a talk by Sant Kirpal Singh: “What is God, and how we can know Him” – this important talk given by a real competent Master I am going to share with you in several parts.

The complete text can be read here, under the website of Unity of Man:

http://spirituality.unity-of-man.org/en/spirituality/god-ocean-of-consciousness/276-what-is-god-and-how-can-we-know-him.html

 

Have a good time in reading and digesting

All good wishes
Didi

 

God an ocean of all consciousness

God is described as the one supreme being, the unmanifest-manifested, the eternal verity, the conscious spirit pervading all forms that emanate from Him – He upholding all creation, but is immanent in every form.

God is nameless, absolute, but when He wished to become from one to many, His power came into expression. That power is known as Naam in the terms of the Masters. It is also known as Shabd, as Kalma, as Word, and other names. That power is the creator of all things, it is controlling all things.

God is an ocean of all consciousness. We are of the same essence as that of God: a drop of the ocean of all consciousness.

Sant Kirpal Singh

 

 

What is God, and how can we know Him? (Part 1)

“He is One, He is the First. He is all that is. His name is Truth. He is the Creator of all, fearing naught striking fear in naught. His form on lands and waters is Eternity; the One Self-existent.
Through the grace of His true servant, continually repeat His Name. He was in the beginning; He is through all ages, and He shall be the One who lives forever more.”

This is the first of four talks given during Sant Kirpal Singh’s First World Tour in Philadelphia

Let me introduce myself, I have come to you as a man to man. I am just as any of you are. Of course, each man has got the same privileges from God. I developed in a way that concerns my own Self. What I learned at the feet of my Master about my own Self, the real Self, I will put before you so that those who are seeking after Truth may find some guidance.

As a child, I had that awareness in me: “What is the mystery of life?” I sought to find the solution in books. I may tell you that I had the opportunity of going through almost two libraries and also going through the holy scriptures of almost all the religions, or the majority of them, I would say. There were very good descriptions given there, but I could not find the practical solution of my problem.

What I came to know at the feet of my Master, I will be putting before you in the course of four talks. The subject of each talk will be a little bit different.

Today we will deal with “God and Man.” The next three talks will deal with “Higher Values of Life,” “Kingdom of God,” and lastly “The Most Natural Way to Enter the Kingdom of God.”

From a careful and unbiased study of the sacred books of the world we find that there is one Reality, which is our goal. That Reality is termed God and by various other names.

God made man and man made worldly religions. Such religions were made for the uplift of man. We have to make the best use of them so that ultimately we may know ourselves and then know God.

Religion has two aspects: One is the social side, or the outward side. The other aspect is the inner religion, the spiritual side. We have to start with outer forms of religions. Man is social; he must remain in some society.

Each society has its own various ceremonies and rituals, its own scriptures, its own mode of saying prayers. This is the non-essential side. We have to remain in’ some social religion because man is a social being – and to remain in some social religion is a blessing. But that is an elementary step – our going to churches or other holy places of worship, saying prayers, reading the scriptures, observing certain ceremonies, and rituals. All these go to create love in us for God.

But if our performance of rituals, reading of the scriptures or attending the churches or other holy places of worship does not even create in us love of God and constitutes mere mental gymnastics, these lead us nowhere. That does not mean that you are not to live in any social religion. You are to do so. If you revolt against it, you will have to form another society.

Suppose there are ten thousand people of your views. Then you will have to form a separate society and make certain rules to go by. After some time you find that a certain rule has proved defective and must be amended. So you go on amending the rules.

All the same this has to do with your outer selves. The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. Similarly, social religions were made for man, but man was not made for social religions. The purpose of remaining in any social religion is just to know oneself and then to know God. That is one aspect of religion. The other aspect is the observance of certain rituals and ceremonies. These vary in different religions, but you will find their purpose is nearly the same.

For example, in some churches to sit bareheaded is a mark of respect. In India, to sit with one’s head covered is a sign of respect. That is a custom there. Apparently, there is a difference between the two observances, but the purpose is the same. Both signify that whenever you sit in the presence of God, just remembering Him, you should sit in a respectful posture.

These are, however, non-essentials. The purpose is the same, no doubt. Apparently, some differences exist, but those differences do not affect in any way the purpose of the church.

Those who follow the letter of the rule, simply forget the spirit and fight only for the apparent differences. In Arabia, where there is a dearth of water, there is a custom that whenever you say prayers, you should just wash your hands, feet, face, and then sit for prayers. In other countries where there is an abundance of water, they say that until you take a bath, it will not be right to sit for prayers. That is only an apparent difference on account of the climatic or geographical conditions of the place.

We have to live in some social religion. So it is better to remain where you are. Do not change, if it can be helped. While there, what should you do? Just read the holy scriptures – the sayings of the Masters – you have, and try to understand what they say, and live up to them.
This is what you find: All Masters who came in the past were the children of Light, and came to give Light to the world. They did not come for any special religion or special country. They came for all humanity.

It is now time to cast aside the trivial differences that exist – the non-essentials. We should just look to the purpose for which they were made, and open our eyes to the Reality that we are all worshipping the same God. These were meant to represent that Reality which exists.

Now you will find, from the standpoint of all religions, that God the absolute is beyond what is known and manifested. That is something even beyond what is supporting and creating all creation. That Reality is at the back of everything. Can we search Him or find Him? No. He cannot be searched. He is unsearchable.

Canst thou by searching find out God? Canst thou find out the Almighty? The Almighty is inexpressible and cannot be expressed in words.

Names are simply given by the Masters to express that Reality, which is really inexpressible. He is the Changeless One. You find: “Forever more, O Lord, Thy Word existed in Heaven.” Forever more – that is the lasting Reality and that is the Changeless One. Ultimately, it is unconditioned and undivided. He is the Nameless One.

 

 

Embracing Yin and Yang


 

Between two bodies
a warm hug
Can open hearts
Merging together
Into one world
Without words

Living silence
Interwoven
In each other
With stars pulsating
Giving birth
To unknown universes

Two hearts beating
In oneness
Rhythm and heartbeat
Eyes beyond worlds
Beyond bodies

Arm in arm
United, one
Singing love
Sphere
Of dancing light

Music of the soul
Vibrating tenderly
Harmony
Yin and Yang
Imploding explosion

Touch of inscrutability
Tides of feelings
Spiritual Gravity
Breathing life
Together

New impressions of Kirpal Sagar and history


Dear friends,

In the library of Kirpal Sagar visitors can see the history how Kirpal Sagar came into being – by the Grace of God, uniting all religions and men – only our ego and our outward going senses separates – in reality we are all One. We are the ones who draw the borders as matter discovers matter… as our physical eyes see the physical world (same recognizes same).

Have a good time, dear friends and good yearing on your path to find the truth, to find your self.
Didi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Question of conscience


 

You are leaders of people
Within politics, in the military
At the working place, in the society
What was your reason to lead people?

Was it money?
You believe to get along
with people in an excellent way?
You believe in it
That your leadership
Is a good service to your country?
You have “more” privileges?
You have “more” recognition in the society?
Or to advance in your profession, career?
Or you just like it –
To be in control of other people…
Or was it to quench your thirst for power?

Your honest answer maybe
A mixture of those questions…

But how can a man lead people
If he/she does not know him/herself?…

And all will answer:
We all know us, know ourselves very well…

You may control other people
But you are controlled by your mind…

Gilded silence


 

Silent is the mouth
While heart is trembling
Talking with light:
Vibration

Stream of muted voices
Flowing in each other
Receiving, sending
Stars in exchange

Fantasy touched
By ripples
Heart drops
Falling

Invisible touch
Warmly hugs
Woven in echos
Heart reflections

Wave of time


 

 

 

Like sparkling light
We surf on waves
Meeting, greeting people
On the sea of life

Storms may shake us
Make afraid us
But when the night has passed
All forgotten fast

Waves taste shores and islands
A noisy journey, seldom silence
And while all is on the go
Age is coming on tiptoe

Wind of time set sail
Crosses our trail
Drags us here and there
Demands its share

Inhales life to make us change
From young to old
In order to arrange
Moments to unfold

Moments in return
Breath of time
Has one concern
Life to climb

Quote: God is His own Devotee and Master at the same time


On the photo: Sant Kirpal Singh Ji


Kabir (Hindi: कबीर, IAST: Kabīr was a 15th-century Indian mystic poet and Saint, whose writings influenced Hinduism’s Bhakti movement and his verses are found in Sikhism’s scripture Adi Granth. His early life was in a Muslim family, but he was strongly influenced by his teacher, the Hindu bhakti leader Ramananda. He is also called the Father of spirituality as He came in all four yugas

Kabir Sahib tells His own story when He says, “I came in all four ages – in Satyug (Golden Age) my name was Satsukrat, in Tretayug (Silver Age) my name was Karunamae. When I came in Dvarparyug (Copper Age) my name was Maninder, in Kalyug (Iron Age) my name is Kabir.” In all four Ages He told the people of Naam’s greatness.

Two very interesting spiritual books by Kabir I would like to recommend:  The Anurag Sagar of Kabir and the Dialogues of  Kabir – For those being more interlectual and interested in spirituality, these are just the right books…

 

 

Home


 

Can one feel the music of this word?
Is our home the place where we live?
Is it the village, the town?
The state we live in?
The planet we live on?
The solar system our residence?
The universe our home?
The dimensions and multiple universes?

Our true home is not in this world
It is our Father’s home

The soul is singing
Home, sweet home
Reflecting in the tears of eyes
Trembling within divine music
Vibrations like ripples
Sent out to touch home
From the market of this world

Yearning arises
With homesickness
Vibrating voices
Near and far
Penetrate the heart:
My children come home, come home

We are in this world
But not from this world…

Leaving the wheel of life


free-from-wishes

 

Wishes in the last breath
Come true
Bring us back
In this world

However this world is a big prison
Bindung us with
Attachments and wishes

With a pure heart
Free from attachments
Free from wishes
Embedded in God
We can leave
This wheel of coming and going
Of living and dying
Of giving and taking
of 84 millions
Different life forms

Believe what another person believes ?


 

 

 

How can a person believe
What another person believes or thinks?
Even when they know each other over years
None of them sits in each other
Noone knows him or her completely
Not his or her motivations, background
And only sees a tiny part…

How easy it is to judge, condemn…

Hurting people with prejudices
Is in fact a bumerang to oneself…

The inner Sound (music of the spheres) – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

 

 

 

Maulana Rumi says: “The Saints are the True Devotees of God, always listening to the Divine Music within. That infuses life into the lovers of God.” Shamas Tabriz, another Muslim Saint, also speaks of it: “Every moment a strange type of call is coming from the Heaven. I hear that voice and none else. Blessed indeed are they who hear this call.” This song is quite unique in character. No language can describe it — neither Turkish, nor Arabic, nor Persian, nor any other. It is, in fact, an Unspoken Language and an Unwritten Law unto itself. The Prophet Mohammed once declared that He listened to the Voice of God just as He listened to any other voice. But when questioned as to why it could not be heard by others, He said, ‘”You cannot hear this Voice as your ears have been sealed up. Hie to some Master Soul with a prayer for breaking of the seal and then listen attentively in the silence of your heart.” Mrs. Annie Besant, the great Theosophist, calls it the Voice of the Silence and says that the Silence becomes vocal when the mind is at perfect rest. “The Kingdom of God is within you,” says Christ. The trouble is that we search for it without and find it not. Man in his search for God has not spared any efforts. He has looked for Him in the sacred rivers (like Ganges, etc.), in the snow-capped mountains of Badrinath, Kailash, Amarnath, etc., in the deep recesses of the forests, and in the sacred places of all antiquity, but with no success. As the “way out” to God lies within, you will have to find a Master who knows the Way and would be a guide unto you until the goal is reached. This work only a True Master can do and no one else can do it. Now the question comes: Where can this Divine Music be contacted? To this the Master replies, “This Divine Music is going on in Sukhmana (a central cord between Ida and Pingala, the two cords on either side, which running through the spine and passing through the center of and between the two eyebrows, reaches directly as far as Sach Khand or Shah Rag as named by the Muslims). It can be experienced by the soul in her deepest depths, when layer by layer the various sheaths or coverings (physical or gross, mental or subtle, and causal) are shaken off from the soul in her onward journey to the various Lokas or regions: the sun, the moon, the stars, of spirits (Pithrian), of Deities (Devian), etc. At each stage, the Music becomes more enrapturing than before, until in Par Brahm (beyond the three Lokas) the soul becomes self-luminous in her pristine glory; then the Music, too, becomes exceedingly charming, in full swell with unending continuity. This is the Ajapa Jap going on at all times in an Unspoken Language. As the soul hears it she gets magnetized, with the result that the mind with its outgoing faculties is paralyzed for want of the inspiration it is used to drawing from the Spirit, and gradually it loses its hold of her. The high-born maiden (being a drop of the ocean of Sat Nam) is freed from its clutches and now moves on unhampered.” It is, of course, impossible to describe the sublime symphonies in so many words, as they are past description for want of adequate expression. At present every soul has, on account of constant association with mind, acquired a tendency to flow downward and outward through the outgoing faculties. It is because of this that she cannot catch the Sound Current (the Elixir of Life) within. A cup turned upside down may for ages remain in the rain, but not a drop will fall into it. But if it is turned aright, it will get filled up in one or two showers. Exactly is it the case with the soul. As soon as the Master Soul gives her a contact with the life-giving Sound Current, by turning it aright through the withdrawal of the sensory current, the lotus-like cup of the spirit gets more and more water of Immortality until she gets drenched through and through and is saved forever. Mind, you know, is ever after pleasures of one kind or another. But the pleasures of this world are all transitory and have always some sting at the bottom. “Our sincerest laughter with some pain is fraught,” says an English poet. This renegade of the mind can only be subdued if some internal pleasure of rapturous strains of the Divine Music — the Word — is given to it in lieu of the external one. When mind tastes the sweet Elixir, it is diverted from the worldly enjoyments and is subdued. The soul becomes free. This is the only remedy by which the sages controlled the mind. It held good in all ages — the Golden, the Silver and the Copper, and holds good even today in Kali Yuga or the Iron Age. The Sat is eternal. It was in the beginning. It was in the middle, and it shall ever remain until Eternity.

The Divine Music of Sat is then the sovereign remedy for stilling the mind. In due course of time, by regular practice, the soul becomes fully absorbed into the Elixir of Naam, and the mind is rendered absolutely ineffectual. As said above, the Sound Current begins from Turya Pad when, the sensory current having withdrawn from the body, the soul enters into the Beyond. The five strains in seriatim follow one another from one spiritual plane to another until Sach Khand is reached. One has to take hold of each of these strains or melodies for traversing from stage to stage until the final stage is attained. It is only here that salvation of the soul is assured and the cycle of births and deaths ends. This is the grand purpose of life, which one fulfills through the grace of the Master Soul. The Master Saint Shamas Tabriz says: “The Great God has turned us out and closed strongly the door behind the eyes. He Himself comes to us in the garb of a man to take us back into His fold.” The method by which He lets us in once again is explained further: First one has to withdraw into the silence of the soul, before he begins to hear the five strains of Music. The sensory current is to be withdrawn at the seat of the soul behind the eyebrows. The journey onward begins from this stage, the seventh in the order from below. When the soul rises above the six chakras or ganglions in the Pind or physical body and starts toward Sahans dal Kanwal (thousand petaled lotus), the seventh stage, she catches the first of the five strains of the Divine Music and proceeds further. There is no Naam in the lower six chakras. These, in fact, are the grave, from which we have to rise above and come to the point from where the Grand Trunk Road of Spirituality begins. Another Saint says, “At the seventh stage you begin to hear the five strains of the Divine Music, when you remove the tent of the soul from the graveyard of the body comprising the six lower chakras. From here heavenly Music takes charge of the soul and pulls it up from stage to stage until the final consummation with Sat Purush or Sat Naam takes place.” Almost all the Saints have given the same qualifications of a True Master. Guru Arjan says, “Accept that man as a Guru who can give you an experience of the Truth, the Naam. That is indescribable, no doubt, but we must have some contact thereof.” In short, whoever can tune us into the Shabd — the Divine Music.

 

 

Unique ways


 

Some people like to play General
Are in love with greed on power
Some hide
Behind their knowledge
Some fish in troubled waters
Lose themselves in speculations
Some seek pride, satisfaction
In wrestling intellectually
Some want to have attention
Through self-pity
Some keep themselves high
To keep others low
Some use force
To detract from their fear
Some sow fire
And burn in it
Some know everything better
Not to be worse off

But some people lose themselves
To find themselves…
