Self-introspection

 

 

If we don’t look at ourselves in the mirror
To find the original reflection of it
Then we cannot see us either
Do not know who we are
What we are
Where we come from
Where we have to go…

Then the purpose of life
Is covered by our ignorance…

Man know thyself…

Acted kindness

 

 

 

Sometimes we make a show
Perform a play of theatre
Use friendly words
Pretend humbleness, respect

When life comes to test us
We lose self-control
Are hurt within speculations
React: hurting, punishing

Fired arrows find their goal
Through self-made illusions
Revenge onself for being “hurt”
Self-pleased satisfaction

Words of respect
Crumble, fade away
Reveal the true face
Unmask the show

Our mind has thousands masks…

Lashed freedom

 
 


 

Strandet at self-created limitations
Horizons fenced with words
Thoughts of right and wrong
Shaking, breaking

Waves of fixed measurements
Strike against the bank of tolerance
On a rigid sea called non-acceptance
Water of no space

Accompanied by fear and pride
Defended knowledge of scarred injuries
Fortress against hostile attackings
House of a snail

Ship of prison in the mind
Should weigh its anchor
To be free from thoughts and words
From luring wishes of these worlds

Like an eagle fly above all clouds…

Oneness is the Goal

 

 

Many roads lead to that one way
Differences flow into equality
Merge into oneness

Where they touch each other
The world is parting
Between death and life

Like an hourglass through time and space
From illusion to reality…

Cry of my heart

 

 

My words are a cry
Of my heart
People, brothers, and sisters
Let’s not seek the fight
Battle among one another
Let us meet in kindness
With compassion and love
Let us free ourselves from hate
Of being better, of craving for power
To find each other in peace
Let our hearts speak
Not our mind

People, brothers, sisters
Let’s replace self-interest.
To help each other
Bury prejudices
Serving each other selflessly
Overcoming pride and ego
Finding our own mistakes
Not those of the others
To make us better
To be higher
To create envy
But to create harmony
Togetherness, not selfishness

People, dear brothers, sisters
We’re all one
No-one’s better, nor worse
In our hearts we are all equal
Let’s stop waging war
Because every war
Is a war against ourselves
Let our hearts speak
Not our mind…

This path begins
By ourselves – individually:
The way of love and generosity…

Let us begin – not tomorrow, NOW…

Unity of Man

unity-of-man

 

If we humans face trouble
Merit great suffering
Our humanity awakes
Then we help each other
With open heart
Not asking from where we come
What colour, religion we have
We are then one in distress
Standing together from man to man

Back in our everyday life we fall asleep again
In anonymity, distance, old habits

Foreign people who lay in their arms
Now avoid eye contact

So let us keep this humanity alive
Not just in bad times, but also in good times

Let us be aware of this deep happiness
Of this unique unity – as we are all One
With selfless help any time…

Divine Play

The drop dreams
It is a drop
A drop of the Ocean
Not knowing
It is the Ocean

The drop has never existed
Only the Oneness, the Ocean
That split in fragments
Dreamt to be Many…

Love and be loved
The magic glue to be One…

Two seekers after truth went to… story by Sant Kirpal Singh

 

 

Excerpt from the small book: “What is a true Satsangi”

Two seekers after truth went to a Master to be put on the way. What did he do? He gave them two pigeons and told them, “Go to some place where nobody will see you and kill them.” One man went out behind a wall, killed the pigeon and came back: “Master, I’ve killed it. There was nobody there.” The other poor fellow was hunting, knocking about from place to place, in many secret places, many lonely places, from morn to night. He could not find any place where nobody was seeing him. He came back: “Master, I’m helpless. I could not find any place where nobody was seeing me.” – “Who was it?” He said, “The very pigeon was seeing me.” When he went to kill, it looked at him. It was God in him. Just think. These are very simple things, but they are pregnant with meaning.

God resides in every heart. He also resides in you. He is watching our every action. Similarly, God in man, the Master, also looks to our shortcomings, but he does so lovingly. He wants to wash them away. So always remain in his presence. That is why Kabir said, “When the Master initiates you (Master is not the body; it is the Godpower working in him), he resides with you forever.” One thing: He is always present. Can you do any sin, tell lies, deceive others, act or pose? No.

Upside down

 

 

Everything seems to be upside down
Is that why we’re looking
At the wrong end?

Spaceships

We all are spaceships flying
Through space and time
In loneliness and oneness
Searching for Home

Riding on light beams
In the depth of being
Set sail in the wind of time
Collecting answers

Passed by metors and comets
Sometimes stuck in pain
Gravity of suffering
Attracted by thousands of planets

Journey through darkness and light
Forwarding life into the open mouth
Of a black hole, a vortex
Beyond death, a new beginning

Pulsars and quarsas
Like lightning storms
Give birth to vessels of light
Stamps of fates

Spaceships rush through the space
A fleet of flying life
Universal symbioses
Part of hyperspace

Hyperspace of no time and space
Eye of eternity, mothership
Stillstand in deep silence
Embraces all life
