Sails of the moment

We swim on the waves
Of reactions and actions
Of cause and effect

Labyrinth of viewpoints

We assess people
Only from our point of view
As life teaches us
But people’s points of view
All have a different angle

Through this labyrinth of points of view
We must find our way
To the freedom
Beyond cause and effect
Matter and time…

Doubt the doubt

Doubts should also be called
In doubt once in a while

True to be oneself

If we want to progress on the spiritual path
Then we have to be very strict with ourselves
We should judge our own mistakes
As we judge the mistakes of others
After a while, we will not see
The mistakes of others anymore
Just our own mistakes

As long our own house is on fire
We cannot help to extinguish the flames
Of other houses

We also will get to know
That we cannot help ourselves very much
It is God who can help us
So why not surrender to Him
Wholly and solely?

Well, it is our mind
That turns the attention
To the pleasures of the world
Distracting us from God

If you ask someone if he is true to himself
And he answers: “Yes I am”
Be sure then, he is not
As he does not know himself
He does not know all the hidden tricks of the mind…

Are you a good person?…

To be in a huff

For being in a huff
It requires at least two persons
Who are responsible
For their saying and doing

The one who offends
Cannot hide behind the words
“You are in a huff”
For he is the cause
To be offended

These words are like:
Oil in the fire

Our words should always be
Smooth and friendly…

Friendly words will usually be answered with kindness
Unfriendly words usually with unfriendly words

It is nothing
But a competition of the mind…

Landscape of our memory

Memory is our inner landscape
In which we often take a walk
In joy and sorrow

We should open the sky to the presence
Devote ourselves to the very moment
Accept both: joy and sorrow likewise

Weighing differently

One bears one’s own bad smell differently
Than that of the others
Means: One measures with two different scales

This can be applied figuratively to many things:

Example:

One deals with one’s own mistakes leniently
With those of others less or not at all…
