Good and evil kindled
Fire of the mind
Are we sitting in the front row
As the good guys, play the game
Justice: better and worse
A trick of cunning treachery
To reap advantages
Willing to die in this battle
As a slave of the mind
To measure ourselves in search of adversaries
Emerging as a winner
Scale of equality
Weighing in our favour
Without the host’s bill
Same gambling everywhere:
With haggling, bargaining
To place one’s own person
In the right light
Lost seems to be who wins
Who doesn’t respect himself anymore
Looking for money and power
To classify man, use man
As a means to an end
An operation without dignity
As lost humility
Intoxication of one’s own arrogance…
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?
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
“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 the 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 more happy 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 knowledges – 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 forgetting. In the scriptures there is written about God, but God is not there. Without the 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 (inspite of) their fake and suspicious conduct. They preach the truth but they act the other way. There is the difference of day and night between their inner and outer life. It is highest time to rely on the experience of our past competent Masters, which are in accordance to 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 region 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.

My heart paints a world
Free from fear and sorrow
Where weapons are buried
Freedom is among
People and peoples
My heart paints a world
Free from poverty and money
Where all is shared
My heart paints a world
Free from hate and anger
Where love and peace is present
Support and help alive
Unconditionally in man
My heart paints a world
Free from ego, selfishness
Where we as brothers, sisters
In harmony and oneness
Make our world a paradise
My heart paints a world
A meadow of beauty, happiness
Where differences are respected
Unfolding blossoms of love
How much nonsense goes out into the world
Out of stupidity, ignorance
Acting and posing
Out of greed for power, money, reputation
To achieve advantages
By a selfish attitude
To be better than others
To instill arrogance
Unfair usage of elbows
Let us see the good in people
Because bad things create bad things
While good things sow good things
Therefore, we have to be more honest with ourselves…
In the labyrinth of life
Dead ends are entered
With pride as a drive
False sights ensnared
In the light of others
Trap for sisters, brothers
A barb in the heart
To spread illusion
Mind of the art
Black blood infusion
Houses built on sandy grounds
With bricks of charming words
That leave the truth in wounds
To raise illusive worlds
Flattered ways prepared
Where feet are lost
With filth besmeared
The light in frost
Dressed in uniforms
Following the cross
Of worn out norms
In ignorance and loss
A chorus of praise
Along the sky
A costly price
Honesty and respect
Are the foundation stones
To begin with
To live and develop
Higher values of life
Is Our connection
Unity in strength
The trowel of our heart
Is our realization, Our goals
Brick by brick
Goal after goal
Until we all live
In one house
Under one roof:
As brothers and sisters in Him
Light in light
Like son in father
You observe our time
At the edge of eternity
You pour life in us
To find us in you
Memory of old traces
Of love and unity
Silently we are connected
In the sand
Of here and now
Knowing we are One
Watching presence crumbling
In the night of nowhere
The night passes
Gives us hope
A new dawn of harmony
When silence paved the way…
Today my heart is wide wide open
I feel the vibration
Of all souls in my heart
Ocean of happiness
Waves of millions of hearts
Touching my innermost core
Tears flow sparkling
Through the inner sun
Fluid of the soul
Smiling eyes everywhere
United – One
Harmony – deep joy
Beauty of life
Song of you and me
Music of the stars
Symphony of love
Blissful happiness in all
Together – we are one
All of us: hand in hand
Creation bows down
When many people do the same
It is not the guaranty
That this is the right thing
What they are doing
Truth cannot be backed
By a large amount of people
Based on quantities
But founded on qualities
In this way many are mislead
Inspite of their argument:
Many cannot be mistaken…
Blessed are those with right understanding…

More information about Unity of Man:
Why we compare us with others?
Why we exclude and include?
Why we need witnesses
To our critical voices?
To feed our ego
With dark voices
To play the game
Of worse and better
A heart that really wishes improvement
Is able to listen between 4 ears
Has no need to flock together
To stone a situation, an absent person
Searching for confirmation
To justify ones own criticism
It is the deep fear
It could be true
What was said between 4 ears…
Why we need negativity?
In our thoughts, words and actions
Because we want to make us positive?
Hidden in supporting voices we need so badly?…
Are we really such good persons???
What we really need?
A bit more respect, a bit more humility
Really, a “bit more” love and understanding…
It is not seldom that we show ourselves
As the good, the infallible ones
Looking down on others
Measure them, judge them
It is not seldom that we compare ourselves
With people around us
Loading guilt on their shoulders
To rise above them
It is not seldom that our gaze
Is dyed in Higher and Better
To demonstrate flawlessness
Humiliate our fellow men
It is not seldom that we exhibit
How great and good we are
Catching applause, reward
It is not seldom that we seek victims
Who pay the price
For our fallibilities
That we hide from others
Why are we all in so many things
Same or similar
In facial expressions and gestures
In laughing and crying
In smiles and in anger
In fear and courage
In joy and in sorrow
In enthusiasm and in mournfulness
Because our mind emits similar conditions
On the basis of our senses
Because we all are from the same source…
My dear friends
Continuing talk by Sant Kirpal Singh: “What is God, and how we can know Him”
The complete text can be read here, under the website of Unity of Man:
Have a good time in reading and digesting
All good wishes
What is God, and how can we know Him? (Part 3)
Ever since the world began, all Masters have been saying the same thing. We have so many scriptures at our command, so many pages of the books of God that have been written. There will be many more as each Master comes and describes his contact with God or Reality. From their God intoxication, they pour out whatever comes, of high inspiration, just to give us the knowledge of Reality they have seen. Man has been trying to follow that but has failed.
Then, how can we see Him? Ever since the world began, this has been the fate of man. Unless we see God, the question remains, what is God?
Kabir says there is one Reality in all, supporting all creation, immanent in every form. With That immanent in every form, why do we differ? Why are there so many wars, so many religions everywhere?
The reason is that when a Master came he had some experience of that Reality. To the people who met him, he simply gave them a first-hand experience of that Reality. When he left the scene – to err is human, you see – some persons gathered together and they had their own way of thinking. So changes occurred.
Again, another Master came, he found dross was added to Reality, to the teachings of the earlier Master. He thrashed out that dross and again let the people know the truth about Reality, to some extent. Again, another religion started.
The Masters never started any creed. They only gave out to the people: There is one God and you should love Him. How can you love anybody until you see him, get some good out of him? Mere feelings or emotions are simply inferences arrived at by intellectual wrestling. They will not give you any definite satisfaction. They will be wavering. Sometimes you may accept these inferences, but they are all subject to error. Unless you see Reality, come in contact with It first-hand and derive the bliss of It, ineffable and direct, enjoy happiness within – only then will you have love for Him, after having tasted the elixir of that Reality.
When the Masters come what do they tell us? St. John says: God cannot be seen with thine eyes. But then you find that some Masters said they saw God. The question was put to Guru Nanak: “Do you see God?” He replied: “I see God. He is everywhere.” Christ also said: “Behold the Lord.” He pointed to the Lord, saying: “There, behold Him.” No reasoning.
The same question was also put by Swami Vivekananda. He was initially an atheist and challenged everybody: “Is there a God? Is there any man who has seen God?”
In those days, there was a man of realization, Paramahansa Ramakrishna, and he was asked to go to him. Vivekananda went to him and asked: “Master, have you seen God?” The sage replied: “Yes, my child, I see Him as I see you, even more clearly than that.” And he came in time to be a great theist. In the latter days of his life, Vivekananda confessed: “Because of that Godman I was saved.”
You will find that those who profess to be theists are, truly speaking, not so. We have simply learnt in our scriptures that there is God. We have heard this many times, but we have not seen Him. Unless we see something, we cannot be convinced.
When difficulties arise, the vicissitudes of life come up and we have to pass through them, we are bewildered and ask “Is there a God?” We become sceptics. But once you have seen, you have had some experience of Reality, you cannot have any doubt.
The Masters say: “We see Him.” But what are those eyes with which He can be seen?
Shams-i-Tabrez, a Muslim saint, tells us that we should be able to see God with our own eyes and hear His voice with our own ears. You find in the Bible: We have eyes and see not.
What are those eyes? Guru Nanak was asked: “You say you see God everywhere.” He replied: “Those eyes with which you see God are different.” What are those eyes with which you can see God? Those are not outer eyes, but that eye which is within each one of us. That eye is called by Christ the “Single Eye.” The eye is the light of the body. If thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. The Hindu scriptures and sayings of other Masters tell us of the Third Eye, or the latent eye. That eye is within each one of us. That one eye is not of the flesh and bone, as those we have outside on our faces.
Guru Nanak defines a blind man as not the one who does not have eyes on his face, but one whose inner eye is not open to see the Light of God.
God cannot be expressed. That absolute state can be had only when you rise into that Reality. But when this Supreme Power is the cause of all creation, immanent in all forms, supporting and maintaining them, It expresses itself in two ways – Light and Sound – and that expression of the God-power is an actual experience of Godmen within. It is said, God is Light. The Mohammedans also say that God is “Noor,” i.e., Light. They say that one who goes above and beyond the physical body and sees the Light of God within is a true Muslim. The Christian can also be defined in the same way; one who sees the Light within is a true Christian. The tenth Guru of the Sikhs says the same thing: Those who see the effulgent Light of God within are true Sikhs, or true “fakirs.” They are pure ones. You will find the same definitions given in all religions, in all the holy scriptures: Have you seen the Light within you? Again, they have said: If you shut the doors of the temple of the body, you will see the Light of Heaven. It is a possibility.
All the scriptures tell us of the Light of God within. The Voice of God also reverberates in each one of us. There is a way in which we may have an experience of that Reality and its expression. That is the way back to God. Has our closed inner eye been opened or not? That is the question. Unless that inner eye be opened, we cannot see the Light of God within us. It is a question of introversion and inversion.
The ultimate goal of all religions is God, and that we should be able to see God. Leaving the non-essentials, what do they tell us? They say, Love thy God. This is said by all the religions. When you see and come in contact with God, only then, truly speaking, can you love God. At present, your loving God is practically impossible. Simply on the emotional side, you sometimes say certain things, but you have no contact with that Reality, and true love does not arise, and does not last.
When the Pharisees and the Sadducees went to Christ they returned in silence, because an intellectual man speaking to a man of realization cannot stand before him. While the latter sees certain things and then speaks, the intellectual man simply quotes verses from the holy scriptures which he has read, and afterwards he cannot reconcile things.
Naturally, when they came to Christ, they became quiet. Then they gathered together and came up to Him. “Now, Master, what is the greatest commandment in the law?” What did he say? Jesus said unto them:
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul and with all thy might. This is the first and greatest of all commandments. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
The ultimate teaching of all social religions is just to love God. As God resides in every heart, love all humanity, all creation. For the love of God, you are to love all humanity. If we have love for all humanity, all other commandments follow. He whom you love, are you going to kill him? Are you going to rob him of his property? Are you going to bear false witness against him? No, not in the least.
Depending on what lawyer you have
How much money you have
A matter of sympathy and antipathy?
Lawyers who are able to neutralize sins
To turn lies into truth
Culprits into innocent people
Lawyers who twist the right
If only the money speaks loudly enough
Within hidden corruption
Judges who allow sentences
In the niches of laws
Even the case is clear
Judges who are themselves dependent
Which parties, opinions they belong too
Fall victims to cunning arguments
Judges and lawyers who have forgotten to judge themselves…
Justice degraded to money, reputation, self-interest…
