Saying and doing


 

We are what we do
Not that what we say

However, there should be no difference
Between saying and doing

Packaging and Content


 

Often we place more value
To packaging than to content
Allowing ourselves
To be hoodwinked
By appearance

Isn’t our mind
A type of packaging?…

Rolling tears


 

 

Shedding tears express
Joy and sorrow
Are invisible words
Living experience
Water of life

Tears wash and clean
Pain and heart
Are talking pearls
Stories of ups and downs
Innermost feelings

Tears flow from the depth
Sing a sad or joyful song
Invite for compassion
Deep empathy
Is understood wordlessly

Tears are touching
Leaving a trail
Salt of the soul
Infect warm hearts
To strech out hands, embrace…

Tears – language of the soul

The true Bread and Water of Life – by Sant Kirpal Singh


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

 

Guru Nanak said, “I speak what God makes me speak, I speak as it comes from above. I am simply a mouthpiece”. Such a human pole at which God is manifest is called a Saint or a Master. He gives you such a gift which nobodyelse on earth can give you. No son of man can do it. No intellectual can give it to you. So this is what the Masters give when they come. Although references to these facts are made in the books, pity it is that they are not explicitly explained in them. The references are made but who will interpret the true import of what is said? Only a man who has lived it can do this. He explains in a clearcut manner and in very few words. You understand now what the Master gives? He is intoxicated with the Elixir of Life and whoever goes to Him also gets a cup of the same Elixir. The competence of the Master lies in not giving theories or lectures, or explaining what past Masters said, but to give you first in theory and then a demonstration of the theory in a practical experience. This is really where the greatness of the Master lies. So this is the Bread and Water of Life, which the Masters have been giving in the past. The formations that resulted from their teachings were made for the purpose of enabling more people to have that Bread of Life. So long as the practical God-in-man or man-in-God was amongst them, they enjoyed that privilege. When the formations became devoid of such Personalities or human bodies at which God was working, these very formations became stagnations and stagnation results in deterioration. An intellectual can give you all of these statements by word but cannot demonstrate or give a cup of that Elixir, by giving some capital to start with. Many so called masters come with their propaganda, but they give only the theory. They tell you to repeat this or that mantra or words. That alone won’t do. Our Master used to say, “Any little girl spinning a wheel can give you the five words. That means nothing, it is the demonstration which counts”. The greatness of the Master lies in the fact that He is competent to give you some capital to start with, by withdrawing your attention from outside and raising it above body consciousness. He opens your inner eye to see the Light of God and to hear the Voice of God, maybe little or more. That depends upon each man’s background. But you must have something to start with. He who can give that Bread or Water of Life is called a Saint. This is why the Masters have been so highly spoken of in sacred literature, whether they belonged to one country or another. To meet with such a Master is a great blessing.

 

 

Overflowing love


overflowing-love

 

Sometimes I want to embrace everyone I meet
A stranger or someone known to me
Sometimes overwhelming feelings get on me:
Love for everyone,for the whole creation

In feeling so, oh Lord, I feel you
Everywhere I go, everywhere I am
Tears running from my eyes
Thinking of you, Creator of Life

Moments of flooding happiness
When touching your temple inside me
Wordless words illuminating
Light that whispers gently:

You are Home in my heart
Thankfulness overflowing
Seat of eternal Home
You are the life of my life

Becoming conscious


 

If we are aware
That God is everywhere
How can we hurt other people?
As in all people
This power is there too

We can only hide us from Him
When we are unconscious, dyed in ego
Ignore, hide Him in us
When we deceive ourselves
Play a game or make a show

So let us become conscious
Knowing that we are all one
That He is the One in all of us
Let us treat therefore with respect, love
As this is love and respect to God

From good thoughts
Good words and deeds will follow
On the foundation of honesty
Which is honesty towards God and Oneness
A tool to clean our dirty mind…

Treasure of Naam or Word


 

 

My dear friends,

Most of us know how the Bible begins: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God…” – it is not just a word, but it is the God into expression power in the Word. Please, read what Sant Kirpal Singh has to say in this connection:

Full text can be read here:

The treasure of Naam

The Absolute God is Wordless, Imageless and Nameless. When it came into being, it was called Word or Naam.

“Naam” is nothing more nor less than Godhood of God; one may call it what one may like – the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, etc. It is the primal manifestation of God, responsible for the entire creation. It is the primeval form of God.

St. John speaks of it thus: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of man. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehendeth it not.”

In these memorable words, St. John has tried to give us some idea of the marvellous nature of the Word or Naam, as it is also called. It combines in it the triple principle of Creation, Sustenance and Destruction-the Trimurti of the Hindu mythology of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva-the Creator, the Preserver and the Destroyer respectively, all the three deriving their motor power from Godhood or God-in-action, Naam or Word.

Hazrat Moieen-ud-Din Chishti, in this context, says, Name and the Named are but one, Light of Name witnesseth His glory. All that is, is of and from Naam, for it pervades everywhere. It is the life principle of the entire creation. He in whom this Word or Naam becomes personified is called a saint for it is said that, “Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” Such a one has reached the summum bonum of life and gained the El Dorado of human existence. For him there is nothing more to wish for and aspire for.

 

Naam: What it is

All scriptures speak of Naam but have not been able to say adequately what it is. It is impossible to define and delineate it in words. It may be described as “Life-impulse” or “Conscious-principle.” When it begins to vibrate, it produces melodious sound, which is termed Naam or Shabd. This Sound Current proceeding from the Deep Silence of the Formless Kutasth is responsible for all forms and colors, visible and invisible to the naked eye. All life hangs on this Life-principle. No life can exist without Naam. The Sound-principle is all-pervading; it may or may not be felt, yet it is reverberating from top to toe. It is the Kernel and the Essence and at once both the material and efficient Cause of the endless universes in which this physical earth is but a speck.
0 Pipa! This universal vibration is the Primal Causeless Cause, but can be apprehended only through a Master-soul.

  • RAJA PIPA

In all religions God is spoken of as the Sound-manifest or Life Principle. It is a current, live and conscious, and has in it the germs of creation. It is because of this link between the Creator and the creation that the spirit or soul of a person can cross over the physical body and traverse the spiritual regions to reach the True Home of our Father-Sach Khand.

 

Greatness of Naam and its needs

The access to spiritual regions cannot be gained except with the wings of Naam.

A Persian poet says,
It behooves thee to fly to the higher realms and that thou canst do with the wings of Naam.

Again, If thou wishest union with Truth, thou must get united with Naam (i.e., Word or the manifest form of Truth unmanifested) for therein lies the only possible union with Truth.

 

All Saints spoke about Naam, Shabd or Word

The Path of the Naam is the most ancient and the most natural. It is in consonance with the Divine Law. In all the four ages, it had acted as a saving lifeline for the people.

During the last five hundred years, Saints like Kabir Sahib, Guru Nanak and the other nine Sikh Gurus, Dadu Sahib, Paltu Sahib, Tulsi Sahib, Soami Shiv Dayal Singh, Baba Jaimal Singh and Baba Sawan Singh have been the great exponents of this Path.

The Muslim divines have been practising and preaching the Path of Kalma for fourteen hundred years or more. The Prophet Moham­med, Shamas Tabrez, Maulana Rumi, Hafiz Sahib, Moeen-ud-Din-Chisti, and others taught this very thing.

Again, two thousand years ago, John, the Baptist, and Christ laid down the Path of the Word or Logos. Zoroaster long before preached of Sarosha or the Sound Current in Persia. Lord Buddha, twenty-five hundred years ago, practised this very sadhna (spiritual practice).

Four thousand years back, we find that in Egypt it was known as the “Path of Aton” which was preached by King Echnaton. In the Upanishads we find references to Udgit or the Harmony of the Beyond. Lord Krishna, long before, was fully conver­sant with this science. In the Vedas, the oldest scriptures of the world, we read in Wak Devi Sikat of Naad or music and Sruti or that which is heard. Kabir Sahib tells us that He came in all the four Yugas, and every time He preached of Naam or Word.

Prayer for 2019


prayer-for-whole-mankind

 

May we all be on the road of light
The path of truth,
The way of spirituality

To see our own face
In the reflection
Of the water of life

May we be all a light beam
Back to the source
The sun of our heart…

May we be all brothers and sisters
In this great sun living in us
In exchange of love and understanding

To bring a change in this world
Not governed by mind and ego
To shine as bright stars

Love is the answer…

True heroes


 

 

 

People who have to suffer
From sickness, disability
People who accept their fate
To make the best of it

People who are fighters
Who never give up
People who shoulder their weight
Nonetheless shine in light

They are my true heroes
Who accepted their destiny
Not to wrangle over it
Coming out as winners

Courage and strength to you all
There is no: I can’t, impossible
But: Yes, you can, just start
Your courage will take you by your hand…

Touching truth


 

 

Mind loves to play
Enters worn out pathes
Seeks happiness
In his own house (ego)

Stays away from the truth
Loves deceptions and tricks
Kidnaps and seduces
Head and heart

Remains anchored
In the game of time performed
Directs and deceives
Keeps one “comfortable”

Any excuse is welcome
If only soul is controlled
Living fields of wishes ploughed
Inside journey prevented

“Tomorrow, tomorrow I meet the truth!”
Mind speaks to itself again and again
Fearing the truth
To be robbed, to be changed…

… To lose control… to lose old habits…

Introducing a deaf singer: Mandy Harvey


My dear friends,

Mandy Harvey has lost her hearing ability. Before this happened she was singing a lot and gave up singing 11 years ago, but with her courage she enabled herself to come back to the stage. She controls her tempo and rhythm with her feet on the stage feeling the vibration. By having chosen this wonderful voice of her, inspite of being deaf, I want to give an example for people who have any kind of disability with the message: Do not give up as you are a very precious human being with talents as well. Each human being is unique and has his/her place in our society, in mankind.

Love to everyone
Didi

Power seekers and their fools


 

Stupidity alone cannot last
It needs to be accompanied, supported
By mellifluous people
Copycats and fools
To keep stupidity alive

Especially it can be seen
With power seekers
Craving for power to have control
Over people and peoples
Time to open our mouth…

If a blind leads a blind…

Compassion


 

 

Tears fill the sky
Of millions of crying hearts
Each of them walking
Through dark times

Oceans full of bloody tears
Lose their voice in storms
Lost fates, drowned screams
In the ocean of life

Such voices whisper in my heart
Need someone to listen
A ray of sunshine
To warm their broken hearts

With the prayer of my heart
May all who suffer in deep pain
Detach from darkness, tormenting states
To take a bath in light

My tears accompany you
With showers of hope
Rain of good wishes
To wash away your pain

You are not alone, my friend
Your pain is felt
Your voice heard
In the depth of my heart

My answer, dear brother, sister:
Love and light to you
Rise above agony
Seize courage, a new beginning…

May the ray of my love
Reach your heart
Give some solace
And be a lamp in the night…

“Man! Know Thyself” – by Sant Kirpal Singh – Part 8


Dear friends,

This is the eighth part of the very important subject: “Man know thyself!” – by Sant Kirpal Singh
which can be read also here:

http://spirituality.unity-of-man.org/images/Man_know_thyself_ENGL.pdf

Peace and harmony in your heart
Didi

The Science

In the physical body, two main currents are working that control life: one a motor current (breathing or prana) and the other a sensory current, which may also be called attention or surat. The Masters ignore the former so that the breathing is not interfered with and the life process goes on. The sensory current ramifies throughout the entire body, but its main centre lies between and behind the two eyebrows, along with the mind. We have to withdraw the sensory current or spirit to its centre.

 

Initiation

The mind will not allow man to have knowledge of the soul. Its nature is to seek pleasure and its constant fluctuations are difficult to subdue. Attuning one’s self with the internal sound current is the best way to calm the mind and practice concentration. It does not matter what school of thought or society a man may belong to. He has not to convert himself and can remain where he is. There are no hard and fast rules, no rituals, no ceremonies, no pomp and show, no offering of gifts, not even of flowers. All that a disciple has to do is to enter inside and henceforth consider the body as his laboratory. With regard to the theory, he has to understand the following, which is briefly the pith of what he will hear at Satsangs:

1) The Master is not the body, He is the Power functioning through the body and uses it to teach and guide man in much the same way as a spirit uses a medium. Only in bodily form will the disciple be able to recognize his Master in the higher regions and here on earth.

2) The Master is Shabd, Word, Nad, etc., all of which refer to the God-into-expression Power of light and sound principle. By having contact with this Power, man is led back to his true home.

3) For the sake of those who are disillusioned with life, and who yearn for permanent happiness and peace away from the world and its worries, the Word assumes a body to afford them solace. The Bible says, “Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.” Once a disciple contacts this Word (which is done at the time of Initiation by the Master), the audible form of this Word resides within him every moment of the day and night and never leaves him – not even after the end of man’s physical existence on earth. It will go with him and stay with him until he achieves the final goal. The Word is also known as the voice of God or the sound current, and is the Life impulse given by the Master at the time of Initiation. It may be heard as a sound coming from a distance and gradually develops into such sweetness that no music on earth can excel it. It is the Water of Life, the Spring of Immortality, the Elixir of Life, the Nectar of Spirituality, etc., that is spoken of in Holy Books.

4) Man has an inner eye with which he can see within himself all the higher regions when the veil is rent asunder by a competent living Master. In this state he remains perfectly conscious and undergoes amazing experiences. To ascend into the higher regions without a competent Master is fraught with dangers.

 

Simran

The repetition of the Holy Names is given to the disciple at the time of Initiation as a guard against all dangers. It acts also as a password to all spiritual planes, gives strength and sustenance to the body and mind during trouble and afflictions, brings the soul nearer to the Master, is instrumental in achieving concentration, and imparts many other diverse powers. Simran taught by a so-called master is just a bunch of words. But these very words become electrified when charged with the attention and grace of a real Master.

Initiation commences with the explanation and description of inner spiritual regions and the way in which the path is to be pursued. The opening of the inner vision to see the inner regions, with their distinct heavenly lights, together with the contact with the divine link or sound current, constitutes the practical side of Initiation. Daily practice of these, combined with Simran, is meditation. In addition to this, the Master gives instructions on pure and simple living, the need of devoting regular time to the practices, and other words of sound advice. The whole ceremony takes from two to three hours. Diaries of one’s spiritual progress must be kept and the mistakes of old and new disciples are corrected from time to time to insure progress.

 

 

Man – like a chameleon


 

What colours do we adopt?

The colour of pride?
Of happiness?
Of love?
Of hate?
Of humbleness?
Of egotism?
Of peace?
Of anger?
Of compassion?
Of sexual desires?
Of unattachment?
Of dependence?
Of greed?
Of independence?
Of darkness?
The colour of light?

We adopt just this colour
According to the reaction of our mind…

However, we are not mind and body
We are a collective consciousness
Drop of the Ocean beyond beginning and end
Connected to each other in this “higher Self”

Colour of life and light

Language of the heart


 

Is understood by everyone
Doesn’t need words
Memories return
Wake up feelings
On the grave
Of burried times
Bridge of past till now
Heart is beating
Communicating
Releasing a smile
Into the presence
Thankfulness is there
Nothing forgotten
Embraced moments
Love alive
