Shadows of our Selves

How much is real about us?
How much is copied, taken over?

How much is in us
That our mind demands?

How much is in us
That makes up our soul?

We follow our ego
Have selfish goals

We are deaf and blind
Repress our innermost

We wear different masks
Depending on the event and occasion

We are not
What we really are

We are only shadows of our own selves….

When being aware of it, then…

Giving up oneself

Who does not give up
Reaches his goal

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

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…

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….

DidiArtist, 27.08.2021

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…

Spreading violence

 

 

The more we deal with violence,
Through movies, games, media
The more it influences us…
Is passed on:
In thoughts, words, and deeds

A virus of our mind…

Food of our Senses

 
 

 
 

People are equipped with antennas
These are oriented to the outside
They connect to objects
Suction of information

We connect in seeing
In hearing and feeling
In tasting and touching
Ready to eat information

Millions of pieces of information flow
Want to be processed, digested
They land in the catch basin of our mind
Influence our thinking

Splitting, analysis takes place
Memories of good and bad
What is repeated, what is avoided
Data streams that move us

Senses control the mind
Garnishing it with information
The mind in turn controls us
Shackles us with habits and attachments

Do we have an antenna
That leads us inside?

Differentiation of feelings between mind and soul

Our mind harbours many negative feelings:
Jealousy, pride, aggression, resentment
Envy, arrogance, conceit, feelings of power
Vanity, narcissistic self-love, accusation
Feelings of lust, self-gratification, self-indulgence
Anger, fear, disgust, exaggeration
Contempt, hatred, desires, greed
Guilt, obstinacy, lies, crimes etc.

Our soul overflows into feelings of the heart:
Love, compassion, pity, generosity
Sacrifice, helping, affection
Selflessness, goodness
Kindness, balance, mercy
Patience, sharing, caring
Courage, serenity, joy
Honesty, constancy, discipline etc.

These feelings are our compass
Give direction
Mix daily
Have their own colour

Let’s take a bath in the heart
To come out with humanity
Human, positive values
In the awareness: we are all one…

Prayer from the heart

The helpless cry of the soul
Is the prayer that is heard….

DidiArtist, 20.07.2021

Money rules the world

Is hope and destruction
Is help and exploitation
Makes greedy and envious
Proud and submissive
Is a means to an end
For dreams and wishes
Is sorrow and happiness
Is joy and pain
Is rollercoaster of emotions
Makes dependent and repressed
Violent and demanding
Makes corrupt and blind
Is human and inhuman
Is power and influence

Consciousness also means:
Being generous with money….

DidiArtist, 15.07.2021

When will we understand

When will we finally understand
Being willing slaves of our desires
Of our egos and our minds?

Freedom starts in controlling
Our thoughts, deeds, and words
With the help of God

DidiArtist, 01.07.2021

Too less – too much

All our thinking and doing
Is dependent on our state of mind

How many things we do
That are wrong
In this state
Only to regret them
After a few moments…

A word too much
A deed too less…

Or:

A word too less
A deed too much…

A word wrongly chosen
A deed wrongly made…

Therefore, think twice
Before doing or speaking…

Life in God

Real understanding changes the angle of view
Clothes behavior anew
Lives in the commandments of God
Is the way back to the true home
Breaks the shackles of one’s own identity
Dissolves it in the whole…

DidiArtist, 27.04.2021

Proactive Life

A good driver looks ahead
Sees possible dangers coming towards him
Can react prudently

We are our own driver
But we often do not follow the rules of life
Putting ourselves in danger

We are distracted by thousands of things
On the road of life
Often react too late in dangerous situations

Then lie injured on the roadside
No sooner are our scars healed
We invite new wounds

Where are we heading in blind drive?
Without a goal in sight
Wasting precious life time

Conflicts lurk at many crossroads
Let us collide with others
Without insight we go on like this

We all want to go home
Then we should know our way
All the dangers waiting in ambush

Thousands of detours hinder us
Temptations in the marketplace of the world
Keep us from reaching our destination

Let us be a good driver
At the destination we may throw off the fatigue
Enter our true home…

DidiArtist, 26.07.2021

Surrender of the proud intellect

Only when we deeply have understood
That we cannot understand everything
The river bows to the ocean…

DidiArtist, 03.07.2021

Fallacy

A dirty garment does not come in the wardrobe
Neither does a dirty garment of the soul

We must learn to understand here and now
Become conscious now
Becoming conscious is a process
That cannot be achieved after life
Thus we continue to remain dirty

We should not believe that after death
Everything falls in our lap
Without lifting a finger
Like snapping the fingers magically
To bring a sudden change

No, consciousness must be achieved
By the sweat of our brow

God wants to see our efforts too…

DidiArtist, 11.07.2021 – inspired by Him

It all starts with honesty

When we change our angle of view
A new understanding is born
By observing ourselves
What we think, feel, say, do
Then the haze of inattention lifts:
Attention – scattered in all winds
That makes us unconscious
Distracted from our own faults
Drives and pulls us into the outside
Out to the market of the world
Lets us sow bad habits

The new point of view will help us
To overcome the old and bad habits

Everything begins with longing for the truth
For the One, Indivisible, Eternal

It all starts with honesty
Before oneself and others
Let alone in front of God…

DidiArtist, 06.05.2021

Confessional of our mistakes

If we could see all our faults
We would not be able
To leave the confessional….

DidiArtist, 08.07.2021

Fooling ourselves (2)

How can we trust ourselves
If we are not even honest to ourselves

This belief in ourselves
Is broken by the first lie

Then self-cheating starts…

DidiArtist, 03.07.2021

Forgive and forget

We all have mistakes and weaknesses in us
We do bad and good things
Nobody is perfectly good
No one is perfectly bad

Life shows us the direction
Though we may have to go through many chambers
That are painful and unpleasant
We are all in the process of becoming, in the making

Let’s not pigeonhole any human being
To judge, to condemn him as he is at the moment
For time and tests of life will change him
Like the waves of the sea breaking at the shore to form the rock

God always gives us new chances
To learn from mistakes, to become a real man
That’s how we should treat each other
Always giving us new chances

That is true forgiveness and forgetting…

DidiArtist, 30.06.2021

Blind to ourselves

Many of us do not even notice
When our behavior
Through words, gestures and deeds
Hurt the feelings of others

In such a way we are blind to ourselves…

Perfect in Imperfection

 

 

We are not perfect
But are perfectly
On our way of imperfection
Towards perfection

Vision: A World of Peace

 

 

A world without weapons
Nonviolent thoughts
Brotherhood everywhere

A world without fear
Free life for all people
Without corruption

A world of sharing and caring
Without better and worse
Without comparison and condemnation

A world of respect
With dignity and honour
Without discrimination

A world of hearts
Among brothers and sisters
Without shadows

A world of togetherness
Living in the Garden of Eden
Without ego and selfishness

A world of unity
Of compassion and togetherness
Of One humanity

Divine family

 

 

Divine family

Hate sows hate
Violence only violence
Hunger for power
Remains hungry
Hunger for money
Increases without an end
Dissatisfaction remains
A game without winners
A game of losers

Only love wins
It makes two into one
It unites
Sows compassion
Respect and understanding
Is an expression of oneness
Harmony among people

If everything is One
Then everything is connected with Oneness
Then each individual is
Brother and sister of the One
Is family in the lap of God

When enters this understanding
Into our heart
Into our mind
Into our head???

When does man stop playing war?
Stop his so-called “cleverness” and tactics?

We are all one family
One in the One…

Thoughts catch fire

 

 

Violence already starts
In the head of a man
With thoughts catching fire
A game between
Reality and fantasy
That invites violence
Ready to use it
To manifest it

It turns us
Into prisoners when joining
The game of one’s own mind…

Throwing stones in the glass house

 

 

There are people
They do not only want to criticise
Know everything better
Actually want to punish
Have a hidden reason for it

As Nietzsche said:
“They attack to hide that they are attackable”

Let us pass them in silence
Wishing them all the best

DidiArtist, 30.04.2021

 
 

Unity of Man

 

 

Blind people do not judge people
By the colour of their skin

Wise men do not take sides
For one religion

They see all religions
Under the roof of God

But we entrench ourselves
Behind words and idiologies

Arguing for right
Holding our own flag high

We kill in the name of God
Throwing stones at those who are different

Is this love
Love for God and man?

It is small-minded thinking
Behind which man hides

It is the seed of separation
Not of unity…
