Beyond Being


 

If being is Being
Beyond being
There is no question
Of being, non-being
There is just
One Being
Beyond being, non-being
Being Being…

Nameless sun


 

 

 

All we see the same
Mountain, sky, ocean
Give names what we grasp
With our senses

Different countries
Dress them in their language

Different cultures
In their own way

Different religions concrete
Their creeds by different names

Countries fear the otherness
Cultural infiltration

Cultures fear diversity
In habits and customs

Religions fear religions
Competitive exclusion

Translators, interpretors
Smooth the waves of thousand names
Are glasses to see same things
In same names and words

Countries, cultures, religions
Should put on those glasses
Then Oneness, not diversity, will appear
Based on humanity…

The sun does not hide behind names…

Satsang, one of the three pillars of spirituality (part 7 – last part)

By Sant Kirpal Singh, in Oakton, Virginia, USA, 29 September, 1972

 
 

The Master prays, “O God, You are the highest of the highest. We are wearing physical bodies, astral bodies, causal bodies, supercausal (bodies). We are on the earth, You are in the sky. How can we meet You, unless we rise up to that level?” You see? “Is there any remedy for that?” They say, “How to come up to that level where You are, nearer to You?” That (remedy) is the company of the Saints, when you become receptive.
Masters tell us in detail everything that is given in the scriptures. To have the right interpretation thereof, you must have somebody who has experienced that (mentioned in the scriptures). I have just been explaining to you one pillar (Satsang) of the three pillars which are most important in the Surat Shabd Yoga.

They (the Masters) give you a contact with Sat Naam within you, and in the company of the “Word made flesh” you have a boost. All other Masters also say the same thing, in their own languages, of course: “To come into contact with the God-into-expression-Power is coming in contact with the water of life, the nectar of life. That is the bread of life.” That comes from where? From heaven. “Whosoever partaketh of it shall have everlasting life.” This (inner) contact can be given by whom? By Him who is already “Word made flesh” – no intellectual can give you that. Of course, if he who is the mouthpiece of that Godpower is a learned man, he will tell you these things, giving so many instances from literature and elsewhere. Even if he does not have any degrees of outward education, He can give you a contact. You can have that by radiation by coming near in the field of action or the area. That’s the only difference.

So man-body is the highest in all creation. In this man-body, the ultimate goal is to have a beatific vision of God. That’s all – before we die!

Amongst the Hindus, there is a custom that when a man is just ready to die, people light a candle and put it on the palm of the dying man and tell him to look into the flame of this candle. The mantra which they read out means, “This light will accompany you hereafter.” The light and the palm of the dying man remain here. What is (the value of) that candle which is outward? “Take heed that the light which is within you is not darkness”, that’s all.

Do you now see the beauty of the Surat Shabd Yoga you have got? No other yoga can vie with it; they have their own scope. That’s right.

What is to be done? When you have got it (the inner contact), enjoy it. Make it a point, you see. That is the most important and most personal question, private work that you have got. We do not find time for that, and for worldly things, which will not accompany us, we put in (time) from morning till night. Then we come and say we have got not time to attend to that (spiritual practices). At least, in that case, if you have got “no time”, then surely you will have time to repent, to cry, to shed tears, at a time when nothing can be done.

So that is why all Masters enjoin, “Catch the time by the forelock. Don’t put off till tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time.”

That does not affect your (outer) labels ethically. You are a man, you see; man-body is the temple of God: you are simply to invert (your attention). How to invert? That demonstration is given by a Master; follow it accurately! Every Saint has his past and every sinner a future. So, please, “Time and tide wait for no man.” You know? “Time and tide wait for no man.” Time is passing away. Make the best use of the time at your disposal. What has passed is past; what will come in the future, we will see. Live in the living present. Let no second pass, no minute pass without it (inner remembrance).

This (inversion of attention) is what the Masters want from those who come to them, who are sent by God to them, of course. “It is He who sends and it is He in Him (the Master) who gives, not the son of man.” We respect that son of man (living human pole) through whom this thing (inner contact) is given and in whom He (God) is manifest. Wherever such Masters put their feet, those become the places of pilgrimage. He is the “moving (place of) pilgrimage” on earth. Wherever He sits, that becomes a place of pilgrimage. Make the best use of the radiation you receive in the company of a Saint. Whatever you have got, put more time into it by regular practices. Snatch away as much time as you can for that purpose, because that is your and your only work. That will help you here and hereafter – in both the worlds. All other things will leave you, but the Word and the Word made flesh will never leave you, not even after death. He will be extending all feasible help and protection to you wherever you are, near and far, that makes no difference. All Masters, all scriptures say these things.

 

 

Turning into…


 

 

When someone talks badly about you
Talk nicely about him

When someone thinks badly of you
Think well of him

If someone accuses you of making mistakes.
Emphasize his good qualities

If someone hates you
Embrace him with love

When someone criticizes you
Praise him

When someone is angry with you
Show compassion

When someone appears to be your enemy,
Treat him like a friend

If someone hurts you
Have gratitude

This is how a stone is transformed
Into a heart… into humanity…

Our inner anchor should be:
Peace, balance, love, humility
Compassion, kindness, non-violence – ONENESS

We are…


 

 

We are like streets:
Crossing each other

Like mountains, valleys:
Kissing the sky

We are like seas:
Wobbling on waves

Are like flowers:
Blossom and wither

Are like clouds:
Passing by time and space

We are like suns:
Giving light and warmth

Like nights:
Dark and bizarre

Are like fish:
Swimming in water, searching for it

We are like birds:
Screeching through universes

Are death and life:
Wandering Eternity

Are golden stars:
Dream and reality

Are a dream within a dream:
Yearning for awakening

Are united souls:
In the Ether of love and happiness

Have Forgotten our light…
