Making a show of oneself in front of others

We judge others
Just to put ourselves in the light

How little this has to do with humility
And much to do with ego…

Market of the world

The world is spinning
Everything moves
Time passes
Breath flows

Spaces are dreams
Foam of the mind
Shadows on the wall
Burnt reality

Everything changes
Comes and goes
Like a sandstorm
Without a trace

In truth everything stands still
Has no movement
No time, no space
Is only illusion, a shallow dream

Where there is light
Is no darkness
Where there is darkness
Is no light

We breathe deception, maya
Lose ourselves in the shadows
Follow the lure of the world
Do not listen to the inner call

Sinking in the mud of desires
Removing ourselves from our Selves
In the rampage of our shortsightedness
Without stability and balance

We stand still by ourselves
The veil lifts
Carries us into the light
That waits for us…

What is love?

Love is not a toy
Love is not a sentimental affair
Love does not change
Love is not a barter
Love does not expect
Love does not take
Love does not demand
Love is not for sale
Love knows only giving
Love does not leave
Love stays
Love sacrifices
Love is oneness
Love serves
Love surrenders
Love is home

Worldly love

Love is not a piece of clothing
That one can change

However, in the world we see everywhere
Cabins to change dresses…

Sirens of the World

We admire the real saints and sages
But are too lazy, too distracted
To follow their footsteps

Because the fair of the world enchants
Its glitter steals our attention
Makes false promises

Binding us in a thousand wishes, desires
Into a labyrinth of delusions
Captivating us like Odysseus’ sirens

We should close our ears and eyes….

Giving up oneself

Who does not give up
Reaches his goal

He who gives up himself (ego)
Reaches his own Self

Only a reflection

The outer light
Is only the shadow
Of the inner light

The outer music
Is only an imitation
Of the inner music

The whole outer world
Is only a reflection
A dead reflection

Light and sound
Is an expression of the power of God
Love, life consciousness

Dwells in every heart
Beneath the rubble
Of ego and mind

Is indivisible One
One in the One
Eternal Being, Oneness

We are blind towards ourselves

Would we see the mistakes we make
How many times a day would we have to apologise

Would we see why we do or say something
We would see our selfish motives

Would we see how we treat other people
Our pride in ourselves would leave us

Would we see how we treat ourselves
Our theatre towards ourselves would end

Would we see how we struggle to gain advantages
Our self-respect would be at rock bottom

Would we see what we are doing with our lives
Would we be ashamed to the core

Would we see where our attention goes
We would perceive wasted time

Would we see the meaning of our life
We would become a different person….

True love – quote by Sant Kirpal Singh

“What kind of love is it that exists today and is over tomorrow, where you love one person today and the next tomorrow? Love is one. What changes is not love. And the love that is real, like no other, the soul receives through (inner) experience, this love always remains unchanged.”

Sant Kirpal Singh

Flattering Pride

After every good deed
Our pride flatters

May pride and ego stay away
As well our knowledge
Of having done something good….

Gates of Wisdom

Life contains many ways
At every moment they fork
Shower us with tests

Once passed
New gates open
Gates of wisdom

They become part of our lives
Create new challenges
Search for answers

Situations come and go
Entangle us in them
Challenge us to untie the knot

Every moment dies and lives
Demanding understanding
For practical experience

Opens invisible gates
That want to be crossed
Colour us in wisdom

He who knows himself
Knows the others

Because we all come from the same source…

DidiArtist, 10.08.2021

Separation of people

Cracks do not only go through politics
The virus also divides people
In camps of pro and con

Differences of opinion are aired
Openly with hate and violence
The “right” between claws and teeth

Humanity is forgotten
Parties form against each other
Have no togetherness

One sees the other as a foe
Not as a friend
Raising fingers threateningly

Everybody claims
To do the right thing
No matter how high the price

Everybody wants to see themselves
On the throne of truth and approval
And trample it with feet

Humanity looks different
It unites and does not separate…

DidiArtist, 22.07.2021

Thoughtless silence

Thoughts circle,
Sharing with each other
Follow inner vibrations
Feed each other
Seek connections
Entertain the mind
Nonstop

Only when thoughts fall silent
Do we find ourselves
The off switch is called: silence
The journey within…

Puppetry

Behind every stage curtain
Conceals the roles of the play
Behind the curtain of the world
The role of the One
A hidden secret

When it is revealed, the curtain falls…

DidiArtist, 19.05.2021

Artificial excuse

Sometimes we conceal the truth
Looking for another playing field
For another person
Distract from it
Not to use violence
Yet it is our own scorpion-like sting
To make us lying

Sometimes truth may hurt
But better than to live with a lie…

DidiArtist, 14.07.2021

Show outside – dirt inside

We care about outer hygiene and cleanliness
But inside are filthy and dirty
Neglect our inner purity

No suit or tie, a beautiful dress
Can cover it up…

So-called masters – by Kabir/Sant Kirpal Singh/Dr. Harbhajan Singh

 

 

So-called masters

What a mire the world is lost in! It doesn’t know a Saint from a charlatan!
O my brother, just because someone has collected a group of followers, does that make him a holy man?

Kabir

It matters what we want to attain

Sant Kirpal Singh describes it as follows: There are Masters and masters, with due deference to all. It is for us to see what we get. Those who are after worldly things or supernatural powers or mind-reading or perhaps healing are really not after God. These are side issues. They get that thing and that is all, but they do not get God.

Why is gurudom in disrepute today?

Modern gurus are generally political at heart. They have an axe to grind – to make money and get honour and respect. They are not concerned with the well-being of the people. Their object is to impress the people by their hypocrisy, deceit, and falsehood. You may be taken in by these methods.

What did Christ say: “Beware of the false prophets who come in sheep’s clothing but are ravening wolves.” They appear to be very polite. The only criterion can be one who can give you a lift, open the inner eyes so that you see there is light there; not tell you that you’ll get it in due course. What another criterion can there be, tell me? Their propaganda? No! There is no dearth of propaganda anywhere. Money can buy anything. Propaganda can be paid for. But what is the criterion? Can he open the inner eye, remove the darkness from within for you to see? There you say, “God is Light”.

Sant Kirpal Singh

 

So-called masters

“Tricky people create confusion and the confused follow them as their Master and out of confusion they do not leave. To create confusion in one’s heart is the act of “so-called poles” (who claim to be a Master or a competent teacher but do not have any competency). Directly or indirectly they are connected with the negative power. They themselves do not know the consequences of that play and cannot explain it to others. Preacher and followers are under illusion, which they think to be an act of God.”

“Miracles, which are a play of the astral powers, affect such people and bring them into the fold of the negative power. Those who enjoy the miraculous powers are devoid of the positive and the higher values of life, (they cannot regain them) till they really find the way to an awakened person.”

The miracles shown by those confused people are the outbursts of the astral effects in the physical world and bring them lots of diseases of the mind. Thus the diseases of the mind are due to the astral effects on the mind. In other words, mental diseases or the diseases of the mind are astral diseases. Most of the people wish to gain peace of the mind, and they can be easily misled by the negative power and the astral effects upon them.

Very rare are such people who have no desires and whose wishes are fulfilled without having any desire. They are the blessed ones to whom God reveals all they need. All others are thus (due to their wishes) bound in giving and taking since there is no (possibility of getting) free out of grace without the gracious Master. Thus all such people lose their capital, and their interests are increasing till they have lost the whole capital and also the positive vision.

Its likings in an always finer and more subtle way, and there is no end to this desire. Thus one feels even happier when one sees something in the astral vision. But he is ignorant and does not know this play which is mere smoke and dust. The miracles which appear due to one’s wishes, affect one’s mind and the thoughts remain involved.

The fruit of life is within the belief of the Master

One may outwardly pose like a Master, one may create oneself to be a holy person and start proving a great holy personality with the help of bookish knowledge, but the inner life is not changed. For how long will such acting and posing continue? At last, the cat will be out of the bag. For how long will people trust?

One may put a silken cloth on dirt, the bad smell will be emitted from there. Acting and posing have taken the place of true living. Those who act well are taken into good books. When people have bitter experiences for want of their demand, they call names (him who was not able to give them something). They should (complain) since they had given their head and heart. So Master says, “Believe only when you see yourself.” Without seeing, sometimes belief becomes a mystery, and to solve it may take one’s whole life.

Master tells us: “Reading, writing, feelings, emotions. drawing inferences are all subject to error, seeing is above all.”

All worldly disputation is fake and futile.

There are two pieces of knowledge – one of the heart and the other relating to bookish knowledge. The knowledge of the heart is light and full of intoxication. It is easy to carry either during life or after life. Whereas the bookish knowledge is a burden of many sighs and is difficult to carry.

Saints have respect for the bookish knowledge provided one moves further to attain it in practical form. Otherwise, this theoretical knowledge is liable to forget. In the scriptures, there is written about God, but God is not there. Without practical knowledge, there can be strains of various degrees, which leads to illusion and delusion.

The “so-called saints” in the world are devoid of that practical knowledge but are well versed with the theoretical aspect of life which they have grasped from the experience of others. They advise others (in spite of) their fake and suspicious conduct. They preach the truth but they act the other way. There is a difference between day and night between their inner and outer life. It is the highest time to rely on the experience of our past competent Masters, which are in accordance with the holy scriptures, and to develop the sincere wish to have those experiences ourselves. And this very same experience we should demand (from a Master). One should create a ruling passion to get the highest gift of life and never remain (contented) in those experiences limited to one’s intellect and mind. Where the world’s philosophies end, there the religion starts. The physical, astral, and causal regions are the worlds made by physical, astral, and causal matter, and they have no importance for us and have nothing to provide. Whatever exists there is not the heritage of the soul but is rather the food and heritage of mind and intellect. What the soul wants is the longing (for God) and the reunification with Him.

Written by Dr. Harbhajan Singh

 

 
 
 

Kind of blindness

Pride in oneself
Keeps away any gratitude
Leads to know everything better
Compares itself with the rest of the world
Puts the own person high
And keeps others low…

There is a lack of courage
To admit that…

Vegan Omelette

Dear friends,

Today I would like to introduce you to a vegan recipe:

Vegan omelette with potatoes and vegetables.

Simmer the vegetables and potatoes in a pot for about 17 minutes. During this time, prepare the vegan omelette.

125 grams silken tofu
1 small onion (chop)
50 grams vegan bacon or smoked tofu
1 avocado
A little kukuma (to make it look nice and yellow)
A little Kala Namak (Indian black salt), as needed.

Mash everything in a bowl with a fork, then add to the pan, fry on high heat until golden-yellow.

Was very tasty.

Bon appetit to you 🙂

A good time to you all 🙂

Didi

God is love, not hate

God is love
Not revenge, not hate

When will this be understood
In all corners of the world?…

When will it stop abusing God
To kill, to hate in His name….

Al(l)-one

Life is like an inverted pyramid
First we come alone
Have a wide contact with many
In the course of life

In the middle of our life
The pyramid turns
Stands upright
The many become few

Alone we came
Alone we go

You people of the world, please listen

People of the world
Stop the game of fire
Stop fighting each other
Fighting for power, ideologies

We should learn to understand each other
Have respect, tolerance, appreciation for each other
We should overcome our weaknesses
Exchange selfishness for selflessness

People of the world
Let us understand
We are all one
No one is better, no one is worse

We should work together
All over the world
Help each other
Banish the weapons and the war

People of the world
Let us trust each other
Together create a new world
A world full of peace and bliss

Let us listen to the voice of the heart
Each one for himself, herself
Love one another as one big family
Let us allow consciousness to enter into us

People of the world
Let us banish wickedness from our hearts
And we will see the dawn coming up:
Hand in hand, heart to heart

The sun of great love rises…

Impotent Consciousness

We think, feel corporeally
The heart of the body beats
But not of the soul

We see, hear corporeally
Attached to the forms
Bound to external noise

We are in the grip of the senses
With impotent consciousness
Playing the game of the world

Seeking truth on the outside
However, it is already there – within…

A wrong picture

We criticize people
Although we do not have the eyes
The head and the heart
Of those being criticized
Cannot follow their traces
What makes them what they are

Criticizing others is only an attack
To hide our own shortcomings
That we ourselves are vulnerable
