Quote challenge – day 3!


Rules:

1.) Thank the person who nominated you.
2.) Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
3.) Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
4.) Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

I was nominated by Carly for this cool quote challenge which I appreciate very much. Thank you, dear Carly 🙂

 

 

 

 

This quote indicates that no Master has fallen out of the blue. Theory alone does not help to bring us forward on the spiritual path, it requires constant practising, discipline and patience.
On this way we should never give up, even when we fall down many times, then we simply have to take the dust down from our clothes, get up again and practise and practise until we have reached our goal. Each falling down enriches us with more and more experiences which is part of the later success.

Thank you very much, my friends
Wishing you all inner peace and sunshine

I like this quote very much as it includes our responsibility and own contribution as well as own development to make a step forward to help the world become better. We cannot just push off this responsibility to others, but have to bear it on our own shoulders. Also Gandhi said: “Be the change that you wish to see in the world!” Usually we tend to blame others for our shortcomings or seek for a victim to put the blame on – so isn’t it time to see our own shortcomings, to be aware of them and weed them out – one by one? If we criticize ourselves with the same passion we do with others, then…

Thanks, my friends 🙂

During His world-tour in America my Master Sant Kirpal Singh Ji was asked to describe the universal teaching of all competent Masters in a few words.
He answered: “Be Good, Do Good and Be One”

If someone has cleared himself inside from the spots of the mind, his thoughts are good, these thoughts lead to good words and deeds and when all is done selflessly (not being the doer, egoisticly) with the understanding that all is unity, all is one, we consequently develop love and respect to everyone as our neighbours, or brothers and sisters in Him.

Thank you Shobha Iyer for the nomination: “The Versatile Blogger Award”


The Versatile Blogger Award

“The Versatile Blogger Award is an initiative for bloggers to highlight the work of other bloggers, helping each other, after all that is what the blogosphere feeds: sharing.”

It is an initiative to publicize blogs with less followers, this Tag is like a joke but still it turns to be very effective to meet new fresh bloggers as well as experienced bloggers with talent as I am to start the prize I’m going to nominate a blog, then the rules are simple:

Rules:
Thank the person / blog that indicated it
Include the blog link that nominated your blog for the prize

( Thank you Dear ===>>> https://thoughtsofsho.wordpress.com/)
Select and nominate another 10 blogs to attend:

And write 10 facts about yourself to the person who nominated you for the Versatile Blog Award. By participating in this contest you must wear my logo above “blue and pink crown at the beginning of the post.

I was nominated by Shobha Iyer for the “The Versatile Blogger Award” for which I would like to express my thankfulness and appreciation.
Dear readers and friends, I refer you to her interesting blog, Thoughtsofsho by Shobha Iyer , full of positive aspects. Just convince yourselves 🙂

Ten facts about myself:

1.) The most important persons in my life is my Master Sant Kirpal Singh Ji, Dr. Harbhajan Singh and his wife Biji Surinder Kaur. These universal teachings given by them and all competent Masters in the past have helped me a lot, to understand the purpose and sense of life. Humbly I bow down to them in deep thankfulness.

2.) I am a man, although my nick “Didi” sounds like a female name.

3.) Spirituality is my daily bread, to live and do with it.

4.) I am a lacto-vegetarian and consider all animals and plants as our brothers and sisters in a lower form, where also God’s life-impulse is embedded. There are two important laws: The Law of Karma and the Law of Grace – without the Law of Grace we would always be prisoners in the wheel of coming and going. Every tiny thought, even a single vibration of a thought is subject to cause and effect, is like a mirror to our own
thoughts, words and deeds. Thus everything comes with a reaction (action and reaction, cause and effect) – to eat plants has therefore two advantages:
first: it is living food, second: it causes less karma than eating animals. However, only through sincere longing for the truth, through devotion and love, the Law of Grace will take measurements to bring such a soul out of the transmigrating wheel to the higher planes such as Sach Khand, the plane of no matter but pure consciousness. From there our real journey home starts up to Anami, the 8th divine plane, where God Absolute is residing.

5.) My first poems and aphorisms I started to write over 40 years ago.

6.) As in my family there are artists, I also have become interested in art, in digital art. In this way I often try to create photos going along with my poems.

7.) Video creation also belongs to my hobbies.

8.) In my heart I wish that we all have a better understanding and treat us as human beings.

For those whose tongues are too fast I wish thoughtfulness.
For those whose hearts are hardened and hateful I wish peace and serenity.
For those who create misunderstandings I wish right understanding.
For those who have black blood in their veins I wish love and light.
For those who are indifferent I wish more responsibility.
For those who criticize I wish that they look into a mirror…
For all I wish to see the strings with which we are equipped, then we no longer are the Doers (as we are the puppets on the string, controlled by God)
For all I wish to see that we are all brother and sisters in Him, so that we treat us as brothers and sisters.
For all I wish to see that there is only one God for all, no matter how we name Him… as we are all His children.
For all of us: unity and oneness, no longer with the view of our ego/mind that separates everything.

9.) I love to be in the nature, I feel oneness, unity in the nature, all with all.

10.) My interests also extend to all old cultures.

Honoured by the “Blogger Recognition Award”


 

My thankfulness goes to Natasha who has nominated me for the “Blogger Recognition Award”.
From her writing I can feel that she is a deep-thinking person willing to reach her goal with her power: “My saying is my doing!” I consider her as an honest and interesting person as well. Please, my dear readers, find out yourself, what Natasha has to share and tell us and visit her blog.
Thank you, dear Natasha 🙂

2. Write a post to show your award.
3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
5. Select 15 other bloggers for this award.
6. Comment on each blog to let them know you’ve nominated them and a link to the post you created.

 

A brief story of how my blog started

I started about 6-7 years ago but did not pay attention so much and left it rather aside for many years, just to place there a few poems of mine. At that time I did not know that blogging could have a positive impact on me – So in fact this year, beginning of this year, I have really started to be a blogger and found it useful to exchange thoughts and words with other people and share own thoughts and also the teaching of my Master Sant Kirpal Singh Ji.

I have always liked to write poems, aphorism and quotes and gave them a “frame” with my digitial art that I also like very much as it may express sometimes things you would not be able to express them with words. Every now and then I am pack my ideas and art into a video.
So wordpress allows me to share this kind of art in an easy way.

 

My Advice to Beginners:

1.) Write comments and write always in friendly positive words –
so that people feel comfortable with what you have to say, even when you disagree with them.
Because friendly words are free…

2.) Be yourself, honest and unique and express it in your own words (unless you use quotes).

I was nominated for the “Liebster Blogger Award”



I am happy and thankful for being nominated for the “Liebster Blogger Award” by Mozer G.
Please, my dear readers, pay a visit to his lovely site and explore yourself what Mozer
has to tell us- A visit is really worthwhile.

Thank you very much, dear Mozer G. 🙂

 

Rules:

1. Acknowledge the blog who nominated you and display the award.
2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger gives you.
3. Give 11 random facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 11 blogs.
5. Notify those blogs of the nomination.
6. Give them 11 questions to answer.

1. What are you most afraid of?
That I am afraid of not being afraid of anything. LOL
No I really do not know

2. What are you most proud about yourself?
Since some years I tried not be pround of myself or anything, because the pride is another tool belonging to the ego. It makes us the doer, but infact there is only ONE doer who has created everything. Only ego and mind think that it is doing, acting, but do not see the divine strings fixed on the puppets – as we are puppets on the string. Pride gives food to the ego. If we do selfless service to man and get proud of it the credit goes to the ego, as this is not a real selfless service

3. If you can change something significant in your life, what would it be?
I do not want to see the mistakes of others, or criticise, or compare me with others – I want to be strict with myself and honestly find all mistakes in me and weed them out one by one. This is way to become more and more conscious and it requires honesty to oneself, to others and in front of God.

4. What was the silliest thing you’ve done?
Many years ago from I was living in a flat, 4th floor and I took the trash-bags with me to bring them down to the proper place. However, I saw my bus arriving and started to run with my both trash-bags (I did not realise that the trash-bags were with me as I was deeply absorbed). Luckily I reached the bus and was happy about it. Then I was shocked to see my trashbags in my hands – that was really a funny thing…

5. You eat heavy breakfasts?
I am a lacto-vegetarian and usually eat 2 slices of bread with cheese and have one glas of milk as well. So would say that I am not a heavy breakfast eater.

6. If you need to do with less food or sleep which would you rather give up?
Less food.

7. If you can meet anyone that’s alive today, who would it be?
My Master Sant Kirpal Singh

8. Are you an extrovert or introvert?
I am an open-minded person, thus an extroverted person.

9. What is your best post (in your opinion) and why?
Do you mean post like profession – it would be a language prof as I do speak 5 languages and have always been interested in studying languages.
Do you mean post like mail – the quotes of my Master as these wordings are deep and a treasure and food for the soul.

10. Do you get drunk ever?
I do not drink alcohol at all – once you entered the true path spirituality then smoking, drinking or taking any drugs – would have considerably a strong impact on your spiritual development and would bring you down again.

11. What inspires you?
When reading the books of my Master I feel very much inspired as these words go deeply into heart.

 

11 Random Facts about myself

1. I love nature very much

2. Make trekking tours in the wilderness

3. Read spiritual books

4. As God is in all, I love all

Thankfully I was nominated for the “Sunshine Blogger Award”


Dear truthiskef(click here to visit her blog) thank you so much for being nominated for the “Sunshine Blogger Award”. I would like to recommend my readers to check out her blog. She is an intresting person and straight forward in her inviting writings and sayings. So have my thanks and good wishes to you, dear friend.

Rules:
1.) Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
2.) Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
3.) Nominate 11 other bloggers to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
4.) List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.
5.) Questions & Answer

Questions & Answers:
1.) The biggest lie you ever told someone.
I never lie… LOL

2.) The best city in the world acc. to you.
Kirpal Sagar, as it is unique place in the world belonging to the whole mankind.
A place where all religions are peacefully under one roof.A place to help pure and needy
people.

3.) New York or Dubai?
I do not know as I have never been in New York nor in Dubai.

4.) What do you think is the best compliment you ever received.
Actually I do not care about compliments (praise) or rebukes (criticsm) since they both come from the same coin. I try to keep both side neutral.

5.) Tell us a bit about yourself
I follow the path of spirituality, means: “Man know thyself” – Gandhi said: “Be the change if you wish to see a change in the world”. So it is better to clear oneself instead telling other peope what to do – it requires responsibilty and to understand that we all are one. So first I try to clean my own house and extinguish the fire (mind) therein. Only then it is possible to help others, but each of us has to make an own step forward and not have a wait- and see attitude (others are doing the job), as each of us is responsible for him- or herself.

I travel every year to India (Kirpal Sagar)and help there as a voluntary helper to fight poverty.

I like languages very much as you get to know a deeper glimpse into their cultures accordingly. So I am able to speak 5 languages, mainly Scandinavian languages.

I am also a computer specialist and programmer which allows me to handle all stuff concerning a pc, also graphic designs, web-designs and internet specialist.

My hobbies: Creating pics in a special way, writing poems (since 40 years about) and create videos as well. Reading spirtual books, gardening, cooking, travelling, trekking-tours in the nature, graphology, sports (fitness centre), playing chess, helping people.

6.) If I ask you to leave WordPress right away, what would you do?
I would leave WordPress right away LOL

7.) If someone hacks your phones then, what would you do? Please don’t say you’ll inform police.I want something smart! ??
I would trace him or her back and find out from where the attack was launched. With the help of an anti-virus app you can trace back to catch the IP from the attacker. For security I would delete everything and would start from scratch or use my back-up from the pc (best option) so that all apps I use are present again in my smart-phone. Then I would reinforce my security system, using even a firewall and anti-virus apps and updating all security apps.

8.) Suppose you won $15 million in a lottery, how would you spend it. Don’t say you will give it all in charity????
In fact I would not keep much for myself, a bit I would keep to make a journey around the world. The rest I would give for charity.

9:) What would you prefer sir/ma’am- Presidential post or a billionare??
I would prefer non of them. According to Nietzsche: the one who possesses very much
is a slave of his/her possession…
To have a Presidential post is deeply connected with politics, but in the last few thousand years of mankind’s history – politics has never worked in such a way to solve all problems in the world. Dr. Harbhajan Sing hold a speach in front of the Viena Human Right Conference. And there he said: Politics has failed so far to bring peace and justice, equal rights for everyone, stopping famine and provide for fair distribution, i.e rich people get richer while the number of poor people increase – therefore he said: that we only have to turn our face to our own face and start to weed out all our short-comings, controlling our mind (we all are controlled by our mind so far) in thoughts, words and deeds to become a real human being with virtues of respect and love to everyone, with selfless service to help other people. So coming to our own roots and discover us, how we really are, what motivates us to do this or that, if there is a show made by us or other things to gain benefit for selfish purposes. This individual discovery is Spirituality: “Man know thyself”…

10.) How do you celebrate your birthday?
Usually I do not celebrate my birthday.

11.) The person whom you hate most.??
I do not hate anyone as it is said in the holy scripture: love the sinner but not his sins…
We should have respect and compassion to everyone as we are all sitting in the same boat.
The temple of God is the human body, He resides in our heart – If I hate one then I also hate the one who is in us too. In this case, when someone is doing ugly things to us and our mind reacts to these things, then we should remember: to love the sinner but not his sins…

I have to name several books that I like very much: “The dialogues of Kabir”, “The Anorac Sagar” by Kabir, “The crown of life”, “The mystery of death”, “Naam or Word”, “Spiritual Elexir”, “Morning Talks”, “Karma: The law of cause and effect”, “What is spirituality”, The night is a jungle” – are all written by Sant Kirpal Singh Ji – for readers who are very much interested in spirituality these boos are really a treasure.

Regarding movie: I cannot tell, as I do not watch so many movies.

7. What are 3 things that make you happy right now?
a) To see Kirpal Sagar becoming more and more shining and the time will come that Kirpal Sagar will be a pilgrim place for all religions (as they are peacefully under one roof there ), and human beings – a place that is really unique in the whole world, belonging to the whole mankind.

b) I have noticed that more and more people are ready to bear responsibility and become messengers of truth and love, pouring it into the world and sow the seed of a harmonic world in the future – this is my hope too. And we all can contribute to it with our hearts connecting people.

c) Sometimes little things in our every day life can make me smile and happy as even small things can move moutains. Even a happy smile to our fellow human beings can be like a sun-beam, touching the heart of them and elicit a smile from them in return 🙂

My thankfulness to be nominated for the “Cramm award”


Thank you, dear Tapasi for having nominated me for the the Cramm award.

I recommend to visit her interesting blog. What I also like is that this blogging friend, Tapasie, is straight forward and honest. Please, see and read yourself what she is offering us in her blog.

Rules:
Mention the person who created this award with a link.
Mention the person(s) who nominated you.
Share three things that motivate you to blog.
Share three people who inspire you to blog.
Share one thing you hope to do to improve the world.
Answer your challenge question(s).
Nominate other bloggers and give them a fun challenge question

Share three things that motivate you to blog:
1. To share my spiritual experiences

2. To give attention to the project Kirpal Sagar, which is a place for the whole mankind, where all religions are peacefully under one roof.

3. To be in exchange with other bloggers and get to know their experiences as well on many different fields.

Share three people who inspire you to blog.
1. My Master Sant Kirpal Singh Ji (if we take the spiritual perfume from Him then it will linger also around our being and we all can benefit from it)
2. Dr. Harbajhan Singh who was commissioned to build Kirpal Sagar by Sant Kirpal Singh
3. Biji Surinder Kaur (wife of Dr. Harbhajan Singh), who was likewise involved in building Kirpal Sagar, a place that belongs to the whole mankind.

Share one thing you hope to do to improve the world:
The ancient teaching from all competent Masters coming into the world in different times and even in different religions, spoke with one voice: “Man know thyself” – When we get to know ourselves and deeply dive into our mind – how it works, how we are trapped in it in all kind of forms: like being angry, colour of hate, lust, ego, attachment etc. – when we go to the roots of the motivation of our mind that controls us, dictates our deeds, words and thoughts – then we slowly start to understand that we are all ONE in Him (in God) – then we can start to control our own mind and we can change ourselves to be in harmony with all people around us with respect, love and honour towards God’s whole creation and His creatures. Then we learn that we are all brothers and sisters in Him and as such we can treat us too, no matter which religion we belong to, or nation, or skin-colour – then we can treat us as real human beings and contribute something (our own change to the better in knowing ourselves) to make our world a bit better.

Challenging question: What is your meaning of life?
For me the purpose of life is to solve the riddle of life and death. What we really are, where we come from and where to we have to go. For this discipline is necessary to weed out all our shortcomings and consciously see how our mind really works – we are then our own spectator, observer and can find the cause, why we thought like this or that, why we do this or that, or speak this or that – to find the real reasons and motivations of our mind. Once with pure honesty towards ourselves, others, and towars God, we discover how the snake in us (our own mind) is functioning – if thoughts are coming in a selfish way, if pride is the reason for writing or speaking this and that, if the motivation is lust or anger or hate – this all can be discovered with a strict and disciplined observation of our own mind.

Then the next step is to learn to differentiate as we often mix things and throw the things in one pot without really seeing what is what – then we are easily confused and go the ways of the mind where it leads us to. Only when we rise above the body-consciousness we can deeply dive into the inner worlds and also see that we are not the body, but souls on their way back Home. This requires a certain meditation, called Surat Shabd Yoga, meditaton on the inner Sound and Light (there are hundreds of different forms of mediations and most of them are limited and cannot go beyond the three worlds above our pysical plane. Those so-called meditations bring people to the astra plane where they have “nice” experience, see the light and colours intensified and they think that this is the ultimate goal. But this is a fake and delusion. Only when we rise above the three worlds: astral, causal and super-causal plane, then we get to Sach Khand plane (the 5th plane) there we find only pure consciousness and no matter anymore mixed with the soul. This only is possible when we have a real “guide” who knows the way and can give us also a first-hand experience (bringing us above our body-consiousness and lead us safely through the inner worlds. Who is interested in learning much more about it should read the book: “The crown of life” written by Sant Kirpal Singh or “The mystery of death” also written by Him. Then we get to know the theoretical aspect of the purpose of our life – it becomes then a practical matter…

Real Net Blog Award


Nominated by Pharaoh:

Pharaoh has kindly nominated me for the “Real Net Blog Award”. Thank you so much, dear friend 🙂

My impression of my friend Pharaoh: He is a very sensible person and interested in spirituality as well. He questions himself and his role in this world and with his thoughts goes deep into the purpose and questions of life. I want to thank him for his active friendship (participating in comments and showing interest in my thoughts and writing as well) – so I want to recommend him, to visit his blog-site as he is surely an enrichment for every blogger.

The Rules

1. Put the award logo on your blog.
2. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you
3. Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.
4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.
5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

Questions put by Pharaoh:

1. What is your main inspiration as a writer. Which writers inspire you, and why do you write?

As I am interested to get to know myself in the sense: “Man know thyself” – I have carefully observed my own mind and found that there is a connection with other people, means that those things may also occur in their lives, in their experiences and in their minds. This inspires me to write about spirituality and share with the community of wordpress.

I am reading many books about spirituality and my favourite ones are written by my Master Sant Kirpal Singh Ji, Dr. Harbhajan Singh, Kabir, Rumi and Baba Jaimal Singh – they can give many practical advices as they lived their live not just in theory but living practice.

I started writing poems at the age of 20 when I was sitting in the middle of the nature, close to two lakes and was so much filled by love for the beautiful nature of Finland, far and wide no other person – just the nature and me – that I began to write what came straight out of my heart.

2. If you were stranded on an island with one thing what would it be?

To have God all the time consciously in my heart – then He would take care of His child and nothing I would miss…

3. If you could travel anywhere in the world right now where would you go?

I would go to Kirpal Sagar, in India, about 350 km northwards from New Delhi. It is a wonderful place for the whole mankind where not only social work can be done to help poor and needy people to get free medical treatment and operation, not only because there is a school with about 650 students educated in the right sense of life, being taught respect and love for everyone, not only because there is a hospital which many voluntary helpers from all over the world have built up – also to help needy persons, not only because there is and old father’s home for those who are poor and lonely and have no family to care of them, and many things more, but also because this unique place has all world-religions peacefully under one roof – due to Sant Kirpal Singh’s initiative and the huge helping factor of Dr. Harbhajan Singh and his wife Biji Surinder Kaur who have spent their lives with each blood-drop devoted to the Mission of Sant Kirpal Singh, who had and has a big heart for all people of the world.

There, Kirpal Sagar one can practise spirituality in its true sense and become a real man with human attributes, to help each other and to be there for each other.

A library to study even different kinds of religions is also available to have a better understanding among religions (there are the most important holy scriptures in all world-religions, also in different languages). This allows man to have comparative study of the religions – by this we all can understand that there is just One God for all – we all are His children, no matter which name we give to Him, the Nameless…

4. What is more important to you, self-love or health?

I would say it is Self-love (not to mix with loving oneself as a narcissist) but to love this higher Self in us in which we are all connected has for me more priority than just health – if it is in my fate to die of some illness – ok, I would accept it.

Isn’t the higher Self a collective consciousness that connects us all? It is said: first comes Self-realisation, then followed by God-realisation… So I do not love my mind or ego but the higher Self in me… however, I will treat also my mind, whenever possible, kindly.

5. If you had to eat a food every single meal for the rest of your life what would it be?

It would be always vegetarian meals anyway (no eggs but with some milk products) I have heard that nuts for example is enough to survive and I would also eat lentil soup as it is rich of proteins, also potatoes with just some milk or quark, besides of course vegetables of all kind, also fruit.

6. What is one thing you truly regret on a deeply profound level and wish you could change?

Or are you at peace with everything? There are moments when the mind directs you and convinces you to do things that are really not good, be it eating unhealthy food, be it to be attacked by lust or greed or any egoistic thought, word or deed. These things happened in my life and still happen – you can say it is human, but this is not enough for me: as long we are in the clutch of our mind, when our mind is dragging us here and there and our poor soul has to follow where the mind directs you – then I cannot be satisfied. However, there are good signs at the horizon that slowly, slowly with the Grace and help of God – mind will become a servant of the soul… (mind is a bad Master but can be a good servant…)

7. What are you most grateful for in life?

When I was young I was in search of the truth and I had a wonderful experience how I entered the path of truth, the path of spirituality (but this is a long story and maybe I will tell this another time…) – When I came to Unity of Man I found all this what I did not find anywhere else: respect among people and religions, understanding, consciousness and love for the whole creation. I joined many Satsangs which means that people come together to receive some kind of food for the soul, where you learn practically what spirituality really means… Since many years I am a follower now of Unity of Man movement – it seems for me that this is the only way for the whole mankind (as the name already says: Unity of man – that we are all one – and so we have to treat us too, as brothers and sisters…) So all my thankfulness goes to my Master Sant Kirpal Singh Ji, to Dr. Harbhajan Singh and his wife Biji Surinder Kaur – they are the most important persons in my life and have also changed it…

Thanks, dear Pharaoh for your kindness of having nominated me 🙂

My questions to you:

1.) Purpose of life?

Sunshine Blogger Award


Simplisticinsights has nominated me for the “Sunshine Blogger Award” for which I would like to express my thankfulness.

From her writings you can learn that she is an open-minded person, always ready to learn new things in her life. If you want to know more about her just visit her site.

Rules:
1.) Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.

2.) Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.

3.) Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.

4.) List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Questions put by Simplisticinsights<:

1.) Most memerable day of your life?
When I had an awful car-accident together with my family. We were on the motorway when suddenly one tyre exploded. Then we were in a kind of super-carousel with many loopings of the car. When coming back to the street on our wheels then we were all lucky to have survived this accident: the car was totally damaged but we all got away with not even one scratch. Our thankfulness to God as He has had His protecting hands over us.

2.) Most beloved feeling you have ever felt, Explained in detail?
Once I hugged someone and it felt like being beyond time and space, as if two souls merged together as one soul – words cannot express this condition.

3.) Favorite destination you have traveled to
One of my most beautiful journeys was to set a foot on Iceland and see its wonderful landscapes and beauty. The nature there is very rich, although there are not many forests or woods (in fact no forests) as we know them in Finland, but it has its charm and magic in the huge waterfalls, sulphur lakes, (blue laguna near Reykjavik), earth-quake areas, volkanos, crater landscapes, calderas, geysers and much more… also Svalbard, 1000 km northwards from North-Norway was very interesting too. Then I also like all old cultural countries with there mysteries.

4.) Most memerable dream you have ever had?
In fact it was not a dream but rather a vision: When the Gurmukh Biji Surinder Kaur, (competent disciple of Sant Kirpal Singh) has left the body, she appeared to me and wanted to say Good Bye – her thank went to all of us who helped building up Kirpal Sagar. I did not know that she would leave the body and at that night she came to me in my vision. I was crying like a small child and when I “woke up”, my eyes were full of tears…

5. Most desired destination you wish to visit someday?
I would like to visit Greenland, Alaska and North-Canada as they have something very special: mostly untouched by man. I am also interested in all ancient high cultures that our mankind has brought foward throughout the history. Those old places where mystical traces of such ancient cultures were left in giant monoments, I would like to visit too.

6.) Best Triat in your writing style?
I usually want to write in such a way that the result is not at the beginning but at the end, so that the reader still might be interested to read to the end in order to get to know the revealing sense of it.

7.) If you could have one superpower what would it be?
Frankly, I would not use super-powers as they have an impact to our spiritual development: If I would have one, the chances are high to be proud of it and pride is something close to ego… If I would have a super-power from the beginning on, I would ask God to keep it in reserve for me and not use it…

8.) If you could attend any event what would it be?
I would like to observe the lives of all competent Masters coming into our world – and to learn from them directly how they handle situations, even difficult ones.

9.) If you could be someone or something for a day what or who would it be?Personified love and bring love into the hearts of every person in the world.

10.) If you could meet anyone in the world who would it be?
Manifested Christ-power, Guru-power, Master-power, God-power – Kabir, Sant Kirpal Singh

11.) If you could travel back in time, which year would you visit and why?
I would travel back to the time when the pyramids were built – how did they build them, how was it possible when mathematical precision was required, even to bring in such a condition that all was for example oriented towards the stars “Orion” without knowing mathematical sizes as Pi and golden cut?

My Questions:

1.) What kind of hobbies you have got?
2.) What is most important for you?
3.) How can we achieve harmony between nations and people?
4.) What kind of improvements you suggest for your our society?
5.) What is your biggest wish?
6.) What was your biggest mistake in your life?

8.) How to stop poverty in the world?
9.) Your most interesting book?
