Symbols of Unity


 

 

Symbols of unity

If you come to Kirpal Sagar, you can see the symbols of unity from afar. At first sight they are models of the four most common types of churches: the model of a Sikh temple, a Hindu temple, a mosque and a church. These typical forms are known from all religious traditions. Less known is that they refer to the human body.

Gurdawaras, the temples of the Sikhs, are dome-shaped, similar to the form of the head. The shape of the mosque reminds one of the forehead. The nose-shaped towers of the churches often stand on a ground plan resembling a cross that corresponds to a person with outstretched arms.

Their message is: God is in us – the true temple is man himself.

The history of mystics and saints of different epochs and cultures shows that they all went the way of contemplation and meditation and thus came to their statements about God. The Holy Scriptures contain hints and reports about their inner experiences. When comparing the scriptures, one encounters conforming statements about experiences of light and inner sounds, with perfect spiritual teachers or Masters able to convey them to other people in practice.

While the Absolute God is indescribable and incomprehensible, light and sound are the two aspects through which He expresses Himself.

Everything originated through this God-power, is the life principle or the life impulse, without nothing can exist. Man as the ‘crown of creation’ has the ability to perceive It by turning inwardly and coming into contact with It. Becoming one with this power is the original goal of meditation, and this is also the spiritual core of religion, which is completely independent of the external forms and rituals of the various religions.

In the scriptures, the working God-power is described by various names, among others as Sruti in the Vedas, Naad or Udgit in the Upanishads, as Sarosha in Zend-Avesta, as the word in the Bible, as Kalima with the Prophet Mohammed, as Saut with the Sufis, Shabd or Naam in the Sikh scriptures, as music of the spheres and all harmonies with Plato and Pythagoras and as the voice of silence with the Theosophists.

Light, life and love are regarded as the essential attributes of the divine and are innate in every sentient being. If man forgets his true nature and experiences himself as separated from that Power, it will result in strangeness, which may lead to hatred and suffering.

The relationship between man and God is based on unity of man – the brotherhood of man under the fatherhood of God.

 

Two-sided love


two-sided love

 

Love in duality
Takes, demands

Love in unity, oneness
Gives, unselfishly

Love in duality
Separates, loses

Love in unity, oneness
Is universal, wins

Love in duality
Fires the mind

Love in unity, oneness
Is life, is soul

Love in duality
Is possessive, wordly

Love in unity, oneness
Is free, divine

Love in duality
Is unconsciousness

Love in unity, oneness
Is consciousness

Duality is Maya
Unity, oneness is God

Roots of evil


root-of-evil

 

The roots of evil in our world
Is in the core of each single person:
Our ego!

From there all power struggles start
On a smaller as well as on a larger scale…

It runs rampant with its attributes:
Hate, greed, anger, carnal desires and attachments

Such is our world – rooted in each other –
Highest time to be aware
Of the wheelings and dealings of our ego
Which thrives on the fact to gain advantage
By taking and stealing from others

Highest time, to keep it under control –
Its thoughts, words and deeds

Wanted: Each of us! –
For a better world…

How do we do it?
With honesty towards ourselves and others
With respect and self-criticism –
Instead of critizing others

Lets change to change the world…

Dangerous ways


 

 

How many things do we mix
Put in the same pot
Lose the sharp look
To differentiate?

Slip in thoughts
Are deluded in results
Stay in the wilderness
In the jungle of ignorance

How many things do we declare
To know them, without knowing
Without personal experiences
Adopt, accept without checking?

Are proud of acquired opinions
Soup of light and shadow
We defend angrily, vehemently
Leaving traces of violence

So we eat our meal
Convinced of its taste
Ignoring the risk
To upset the stomach of our spirit…

Who am I


 

 

What am I?
Who am I?

I am a thought that lives
An indescribable something

Live on a time-floe
Breathe the cosmos, the infinity

Am a wave of action and reaction
Trace of the past, brick of the future

Knowledge of own existence
Veiled in being

Am I a domino effect
Programme within a programme?

Am I a conscious simulation
A perpetual transition?

I feel that I am
And feel that I am not

What am I? – A divine dream
Who am I? – Everything and nothing…
