Sleeping desires


 

 

Our desires sleep
Like flower seeds in desert sand
As soon as the first rain comes
They awake and bloom…

Judge or not judge


 

 

How can someone judge
Who is not able to judge himself…

And he who is able
He does not judge others, except himself…

Lotos of the Soul


 

 

The soul blossoms
Like a lotus flower
From the mud of matter and mind
Once it rises above the body
When solving the mystery of life and death
The purpose of human life…

Ocean of All and Nothing


 

 

We have to become
Like a white sheet of paper
Unwritten and empty
Where we lose ourselves
To find Him

Losing our ego, our personality
Dissolving into the great void
Where no dual pencil writes anymore
No more vital ink is used
Law of karma has no power

We have to become
Innocent as a baby
That thinks with the heart
Bathing in eternal light
Listening to the sound of the voice of God

When we are no more
And yet dwell in life
We dive into His will
Are one with Him
A blank sheet of paper

Ocean of All and Nothing…

The making of Man – by Sant Kirpal Singh Ji


 
 

 
 

Change for the Better


 

 

Stability makes life flourishing
Peace creates stability

Tolerance bridges differences of opinion
Respect for each other creates tolerance

Common ground strengthens understanding
Overcoming differences creates common ground

Differences lead to enrichment
Fair sharing creates togetherness

Love for all people, animals, and plants unites
Compassion creates this love

Not where we separate us is the hope
But where we connect us as human beings…

Inside Out


 

 

The water of life
Is not boiled outside
But inside…

Colours of Consciousness


 

 

Consciousness is understanding
Consciousness is compassion
Consciousness is learning from one’ s own mistakes
Consciousness is thoughtfulness
Consciousness is true life
Consciousness is fear of the consequences
Consciousness is the light of the self
Consciousness is immortal
Consciousness is oneness
Consciousness is kindness
Consciousness is honesty
Consciousness is the thin warning voice in us
Consciousness is devotion to others
Consciousness is practical life
Consciousness is to be a living example
Consciousness is service to man
Consciousness is thankfulness in every moment
Consciousness is a drop of All Consciousness in God
Consciousness is the actual soul
Consciousness is the knowledge of the heart
Consciousness is love for all

May we rise from the shadow of our ignorance…
May we become conscious, living beings…

Crimes committed in thoughts


 

 

If thoughts could be made visible
How many crimes has each one of us committed then?

We’re all sitting in our own jail
But wearing a clean jacket on the outside…

It is our mind that commits sins and crimes
Not the real we in us…

We have to clean our thoughts from dust, matter, and darkness

Between madness and foolishness


 

 

Mind that conquers winds
Questioning everything
But not itself
That loves challenges
Compete with opponents
Under the cloak of good and evil
Giving orders, forcing obedience
Watering deserts with hate
And crazy dancing feelings
That plays theatre, performs shows
Between suffering and happiness
Anxiety and worries, emotional facets
Looking to taste itself
To feel liveliness
To be in existence
To seize the power

Oh, man, when do you wake up?
From your illusion, your delusion:
Alone, separated from everything…

Only Oneness is One
That holds itself together with love…
The missing link of the mind…
That searches reality — in vain…

A humble man


 

 

Many people feel
Better or higher than others
If they have more money
Have more power
Hold titles
Are highly profiled

They compare
In order to make themselves better
There, no humility is contained…

Only a person with humility and respect
Becomes a real man…

Courage to admit own mistakes


 

 

Sometimes we are not aware
Of the consequences of our words and deeds
When we notice them,
Often it is already too late…
Then we get stuck in our own pride

With courage and confession
To be responsible for own mistakes
The rudder can still be pulled around

So we have to make peace with ourselves
To be in peace with others…

It is never too late for that…

Effect of a mirror


 

 

Prejudices only distract
From one’s own shortcomings…

Dry Within


 

 

Outside we may appear like a fertile garden
Full of fruit trees and lush vegetable beds
Which represent our fulfilled wishes
But inside we are dry, barren land

As we have not yet drunk the water of life…

Lack of Determination


 

 

Whoever has his chair between two camps
Will neither know the one place
Nor the other one properly

He sits on the chair of indecision
Is neither here nor there at home…

The perennial nagger


 

 

His characteristics:
He knows everything better
Criticizes everything
Knows an answer to all questions
Speaks ill of others
To take a bath in the limelight
His hobbies:
He judges and condemns

Spares himself
Without nagging
Because he is not aware
Of himself and his doings

May he find the road of life
In humbleness and respect…

Self-cheating


We just want to hear
What we like
Any truth that is contrary to us
We sweep under the carpet

Are we afraid
That our innermost is discovered?

Are we anxious
That the truth harms others?

Are we frightened
That we lose appreciation?

Are we scared
That our ego is losing something?

It is an illusory world
That we are building
Leading us to dependency
On the opinions of others…

How much honesty towards ourselves do we have?…

Painful Understanding


 

 

Only a deep pain breaks through
The wall of our ignorance…

Learning to be Thankful


 

 

When we have lost our jobs
We start to see what we had

When we have lost our freedom
Only then we start to appreciate it

When we have lost stability of our life
Only then we understand its meaning

When we think we are lost
Then we are really lost

As we think
So we become

When we think that each thunderstorm will pass
No wind can treat us like a leaf

When all is back to normal
We are aware – in thankfulness what we have…

Understanding rises out of problems
Is medicine to make us aware of our own value:
We are all human beings
Children of God
Have to live in harmony together
To bring out of us: humanity, thankfulness

Game of Mind


 

 

If we stop playing
The world can no longer capture us…

First, we have to understand this game…

Outside Shining – Inside Fouling


 

 

How many angles and corners are there in us
Where chaos and disorder reign
Where dirt accumulates
Dust is setting down?

How many impurities are in us
Which we have neglected
Falling into oblivion
Where no external soap helps?

On the outside nice and clean
Well-groomed appearance among witnesses
Inside without hygiene
There’ s no one watching

But inner dirt
Moves motives on the outside
Hidden, concealed
Determines our thoughts, actions.

Our internal residence
Like a mirror:
What is inside is outside
What is outside is inside

We should be dust and germ-free
That the inner dirt
Does not become external dirt
With the soap of innocence and honesty

We cannot hide from ourselves nor from God…

Time for Self-Introspection


 

 

Many questions come
Addressed to ourselves:
How has my life been so far?
What have I done wrong?
What can I improve in the future?

So much dirt in my thoughts
Garbage in words and deeds
Pyramid top of a now and here
Time to take stock
Who I was, who I am

How many people have I hurt
Including myself?
In the hamster wheel of equal deeds
Bad habits?
Shame on myself

Every thought, every word, every action
Has a heavyweight
When they hurt
It’s banging against the walls
Of one’s own heart

The scale shows
Where we stand
Honesty and confession may help
To cleanse us from dirt
To become a better person…

Time to bring about the change in us…

Virus: Ego and Mind


 

 

Ego and mind of a man
Is like a virus
It needs a host
To multiply his power through:

Money, selfishness, pride, greed,
Attachment – packed in wishes

Detachment is the solution

Even from oneself
To be one…Self…

This virus is spreading around the world
May we all find a serum against it
