Power seekers


power-seekers

 

Power seekers want
To control
Dictate and rule over people,
Use all means
Without scruples
To reach their goals

May God bless them
With right understanding
Respect people
Not prison them in fear
With their intrument of power
In their hands

May they see their own mirror image
To understand what they are doing
And stop abusing power
On the shoulders
Of millions of people

  1. Like misogynists who won’t let women enjoy sex. Would feel sorry for them if they weren’t always improving their capacity to hurt others.

        • Dear friend,

          I ask you not to use swearwords in my blog. Look, dear friend, don’t we have enough mistakes in us too? When using swearwords against any person, it provides us a better position then that person or persons we disagree with? In fact we all are not perfect and we are also not really better than others. If we start finding our own shortcomings, well then we do not have time anymore to use swearwords against others. Where does positivity or negativity start from – yes, from our thoughts and in fact we are controlled by our mind. When we are angry it draws us here and there. So we have to control our thoughts if we do not wish to becontrolled by them (mind). If someone or many people are on fire we cannot extinguish it with fire against them – only water can help and the water of good thoughts. In the whole history of mankind we have seen that violence only ends in more violence. We humans go always the easiest way and it is also easy to criticize, but not so easy to find a solution, to do just opposite – to think positive and contribute with each positive thought to make the world a bit better – as we all one, all connected like drops with the ocean. Gandhi for example pled for a non-violence principle which he also successfully used against the British colonial rule and he also said: If we want to see a change in the world, then first we have to change ourselves. And violence already starts in our head. Therefore, each of us is needed and wanted to bring a positive change through changing ourselves positively as living examples.

          What did Jesus Christ say to such persons who are abusing power or who are doing evil things through which man and mankind have to suffer? “God loves the sinner, but He does not love his sins…” So if we know that everything is one and God has brought forward His creation into life and worlds – then in each of us there is this temple of God. From this point of view we can develop respect and love to everyone.

          Thanks for your attention
          All the best

          • Sorry. Didn’t realise I did. I like to show a sermon rather than give one. Plenty of nice speaking criminals. Actions are what it’s about. Take care. Have a great day and keep doing the good work

            • Hi Coyote from Orion,
              SoundEagle would like to applaud you for responding to Didi’s explanations reasonably well, and would like to add that even if your statement “An asshole is an asshole.” can be considered to be not containing any objectionable words and/or expression, the statement still lacks explanatory power, amounting to something no better than the sentence “It is what it is.”

              SoundEagle would like to wish you all the best to your endeavours in BA (Political Science/History) and Bachelor of Communications.

          • Hello Didi,
            As you might already have noticed, SoundEagle has been reading both your posts and the comments in those posts. Your long, highly commendable comment addressed to Coyote from Orion with such degree of patience and love is the ultimate element or final piece of the jigsaw that pushes SoundEagle over the line to follow your blog.

            • My dear friend,

              Thank you very much for your kind words 🙂
              I think it is important to understand that we are all on our way to develop us as real human beings. For this each of us is responsible for him- or herself. With respect and kind words to each other avoiding even violence in out thoughts, we all can contribute a bit to a better world.

              I am still “on holiday” – but when the time is mature, I will return.

              So wishing you all what is good for your soul, dear friend
              Didi

    • Dear Ulli

      I am writing poems, aphorisms and quotes since over 40 years – there may sometimes be similarities with the quotes already existing, but they all were written due to my own experiences and way of thinking. My Master Sant Kirpal Singh has taught me respect and human values for which I am really thankful. He also said: “No need to dig new wells (new religions) everyone can stay in his own religion which surrounds him, but we should develop to become a good Muslim, a good Christian, or Hindu, or Buddhist or or…) – then we should not judge people by skin, nationality or religon as it is impossible to say this or that for all people and I think not even for one – because we do not live the life another person lives. What did Jesus Christ say when a crowd was going to stone a prostitute? He said: “If there is anyone without a sin (mistake, shortcoming) he may throw the first stone…” But then noone has thrown the stone. This judging makes us only better and the other smaller – but are we really better? – No, surely not – we have also our shortcoming as others have, but we do not want to see our own mistakes, we just sweep them under the carpet. Thats why I once wrote: It is easy to critisize others, to judge them, because we do not have the same passion of judment with ourselves… When we would judge ourselves, really critically as we easily do it with others, then we would really find lots of mistakes in ourselves and then we would start to be a bit more humble and have more respect to other people and peoples. They great Masters, holy Saints and Sants they all had this respect even towards the religions, because the original idea was to remember the Creator. That is why people go to churches or gurdawaras or mosques. When we judge other people and even other religions, even when we do not consider us as followers of them – we do not even hurt people with it, we put them all in the same pot. We have to learn to differentiate what is what and all should be done in respect, if not in respect towards God, but then in respect to the human being. The ABC of humanity starts with ourselves.

      I remember myself: When I was a young man I studied philosophy, especially those ideas from Friedrich Nietzsche. At that time I was an atheist, I could not believe in God – God who watches his own children suffering? – I did not understand it, not at that time. So I was a proud philosopher and I must admit, even arrogant. I knew things better that there was no God existing. But how can the drop know the ocean? We are limited in our knowledge and the more we learn and gather book-knowledge the more I agreed to the quote of Sokrates: “All I know that I know nothing…” Indeed, we are proud of our knowledge and yet do not realize how little we really know. We compare us with others and in comparing us with others we always have our own scale with us, of course we put us in the scale-pan to make us better and the other smaller – Kabir was a very high spiritual person, he was called the Father of spirituality, but he himself saw himself as the worst of all people – this I call real humbleness. Unfortunately this humbleness is really missing, or nearly missing in our society. We were taught to compete, according to the sentence: To get the maximum with minimum means. – This means: the center of our being is that ego, ego and mind. I come first and then the others… I wish we would see a change as Platon has put it in: “The state” – there, even people who have to bear much responsibility do their job out of vocation, not out of money… and do not ask for more money than other “ordinary” people get.

      Let us deeply look into ourselves – there we can start with a good change for the better, no matter what our ideology is – this is a process of man-making.

      Thank you for your attention, dear friend
      All good wishes
      Didi
