Led astray

 

 

We believe the more of here and there
In all directions of “spirituality”
The greater the “weight”
The better the “taste”, the “spices”
The deeper the realization
The more developed we are
On the “path of spirituality”

We mix everything in one pot
And wonder
Why we still suffer blindly
Without proper background knowledge
Proper understanding

It blinds our power of discrimination
Makes us walk thoughtlessly on thin ice
Because not everything is tolerable for us
Not every “spiritual ingredient”

We can even drown in this process
Without even knowing it
While stepping on dangerous ice

Eating wrong mushrooms
May cause dangerous consequences
Taking the wrong medicine
For body and spirit
Will have dramatic effects

Before we prepare a “spiritual diet”
We should know its “ingredients” very well.

Do we not blindly follow what is in fashion?
Such as countless types of yoga and meditation?
But in truth do not know where they lead us
To the purpose of our existence?

Who only knows the night,
Knows nothing of the light of the day
Everything is then limited within the range of the night

Are we not blind in a moonless night?

Killing in the name of

 

 

Man is still more animal than man
He kills in the name of God
In the name of religion,
In the name of the state,
In the name of a people
Hides his motives
Is hungry for power
Starves for more
Speaks of love
But hates in reality
Speaks of peace
But dreams of conquest, campaign
Is ego oriented through and through

When will he learn
That no one is a stranger
When will he learn
That all are one
When does he learn
That all are brothers and sisters
Children of the same God?
When?

Is he still killing then?
Will he still go to war?

Or does he then understand
What love really is?

Man is still more animal than man

Throwing stones in the glass house

 

 

There are people
They do not only want to criticise
Know everything better
Actually want to punish
Have a hidden reason for it

As Nietzsche said:
“They attack to hide that they are attackable”

Let us pass them in silence
Wishing them all the best

True Prayer

 

 

True prayers do not need approval from others
They come silently and sincerely from the heart
Are not pinned to one’s own breast
Like an order
They need no witnesses, no emphasis
Are selfless, addressed directly to God
Are neither materialistic nor selfish
Are full of compassion for others
Without attracting attention…

Like a thousand-headed snake

 

 

Weed that is not pulled out by the root,
Will always grow again, even multiply.

Isn’t our mind like a weed
A thousand-headed serpent?
