Ill mind

As long as our mind rules
Over our soul
It causes destruction
Is like a wildfire
Untamed, uncontrolled

Mind fights against mind
Separates instead unites
Leads wars, is selfish
Is greedy, egoistic
Wants power, wants money
All wishes to be fulfilled

Mind is self-destructive
Far from love and respect
Is full of disharmony
Able to change feelings
From one second to the other
Is only the shadow
Of our soul

Mind is a monster
Hidden in us
As long uncontrolled
Policy is only born
From our mind
It only searches
For own advantages

Consciousness means
To be aware of our thoughts
Aware of our doings
To know the consequences ahead
To know where it leads to
When following the voice
Of our mind

Mind is the illness in us
The devil in us
If it is tamed
It can be a good servant
To support us
As a tool of the soul

Let us make the step
Out of this fire…

Own dialogue

How often do we mix up?
Mind with soul
Love with lust
Truth with half-truth
Selflessness with obstinacy
Wholeness with particularity

Should we not question ourselves
To get to know ourselves better?…

DidiArtist, 06.11.2022

Observe and Understand

Not like being involved
To see what we think and do
From a distance
Beyond ourselves
As watchers from above

To understand the connection
With all and everything
Actions and reactions
Where it leads us

To understand ahead
The consequence
To avoid wrong ways
Within the silence of non-thinking

An understanding deep down in our hearts
Consciousness that leads us
Like a shining star
Above the ocean of life

No automatic prayer

Mostly our prayers are wishes
We want this and that
For ourselves and others

Have we forgotten
That God knows our hearts?

If we surrender to Him
Through and through
He takes seat in us

He becomes the Doer in us
While our ego slowly disappears

However, we play with the world
Are not really honest towards ourselves
Accept only what we want

He lives in us
And we live in Him

Our prayers become thoughtless
Connected with Him and wishless
Based on trust and surrender

A matter from heart to heart…

DidiArtist, 07.09.2022

Broken mirror

We can see ourselves in the mirror
Only when it is complete
We cannot see ourselves
Because the mirror is broken
Ego breaks it
Into smaller and smaller fragments
We lose ourselves in broken pieces
Like our attention
Which also splinters in all directions
Our senses pull us from fracture to fracture
We have lost unity

Only a mirror of unity
Lets us recognise ourselves…

Unity is love
Is soul and humanity

Unity is Oneness…

Living without a goal

We build our future on sand
And pretend it’s for eternity
But eternity needs a different present
Another foundation

What is it?…

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…

Reincarnation and Eternity

Not reincarnation is the goal
But the eternity…

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…

DidiArtist, 14.05.2020

 
 

Cries of the war

Did you see the sorrowful tears
The broken hearts
The pain in the eyes
The depth of suffering
The radiating sorrow
Exuding fear and dread

Did you hear the silent questions: Why only?
The cries from the deepest ground
The voices of helplessness in the face of what has happened
The sound of despair
The fearful cry for help
From the hearts of deeply wounded people

You give orders
But you see and hear nothing
You hear and see only
What you want to hear and see
You are deaf to human cries
Blind to see people suffer

People have no nationality
People are people
And yet you wage a merciless war
Which you base on speculation and selfishness
Built on lies

Where is your humanity?

True compassion is not limited to one country…

DidiArtist, 25.07.2022

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…

DidiArtist, 03.05.2020

 

Addressed to the warlord

Cruelly you kill people
Waging war against an “enemy”
Whom you have designated as your enemy
Hiding behind obscure reasons
Only to see your dream fulfilled
Through violence, threat, lust for power

If your people would suffer
In the same way
As you make your so-called enemy suffer
Would your anger become boundless?
Or would you finally begin to understand…?

Responsibility means:
To be aware of one’s own actions…

DidiArtist, 29.06.2022

Power-ulcer: War

Respect and honour are earned
Not through violence and land theft
But through compassion, understanding
Through help and sharing
Through service to man
Through foresight
That all is one in Him….

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…

Is not better or worse

Just because someone has a title
Doesn’t make him better or worse
But we treat him that way
Because he wants to be treated that way too

Just because someone has a talent
They’re not better or worse
But…

Just because someone has a leadership role
Is not better or worse
But…

Just because someone is president
Is not better or worse
But…

Whatever role we play in life
It is no better or worse than others
But…

Why? Because we are all human beings first and foremost
Are no better or worse
Because we are what we are:

Human beings with human ups and downs
Human beings with human weaknesses and strengths
People who need each other in good and bad times

However, we should respect every human being with dignity.
Not regard him as property
Or lay claim to him

DidiArtist, 01.03.2022

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…

DidiArtist, 12.10.2019

 
 

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…

DidiArtist, 22.08.2021

No differentiation

As long as we still distinguish
Between happiness and unhappiness
The ego speaks from us

Everything comes from God
Sweet or bitter medicine

After a long night
The patient awakes…

DidiArtist, 30.10.2021

Under the coat of ignorance

We hide behind our ego
With a thousand excuses
As if we were innocent

Truth is we are dishonest towards ourselves
We look away from our own selfish motives
To forget what we are doing…

DidiArtist, 04.10.2021

A question of conscience

Is it you who contributes to the chaos in the world?

Who rashly takes sides
Who is easily influenced
Who hides responsibility behind bogus reasons
Who spreads disinformation in the society
Who fanatically clings to baseless ideas
Who thinks that his intentions are good and positive
Who does not admit his mistake, does not see it
Who sows disharmony around himself
Who carries violence in his thoughts
Who is not honest with himself
Who denies himself to these question

Who lacks the power of discrimination, the inner voice?

DidiArtist, 05.12.2021

Peace on Earth

Only when the world is free of all dictators
When greed and power take their leave of mankind
When the gap between rich and poor is overcome
When man has recognised his destiny
When we honour and cherish each other as one family
When envy and hatred disappear from the earth
When love and kindness to one another reign
When the I expresses itself in the You
When we all help each other
When we realise we all need each other
When we see everyone is a cog in the machinery of humanity

Then we will experience peace on earth
Peace in the individual
Peace in the Whole

DidiArtist, 04.06.2022

Overcoming war

If we want peace
We must overcome the war
That rages in our heads

DidiAtist, 01.02.2022

How is it possible?

How is it possible
That a few people rule
Over people and nations?

How is it possible
That a few people live
In hustle and bustle
While a large part of the people have to starve?

How is it possible
That the many allow themselves to be controlled
By the few?

In this way, man is like spreading metastases
With his greed for more and more
With his I, I, I first
With his brutal ruthlessness

This man of power is a danger to the whole world
Who has not even recognised
What weaknesses does he suffer from
Who is unconscious like an animal

We need a change
No longer poor and rich
Not those with power or powerlessness

We need a fair distribution
In all areas
We need people with heart and understanding
People who are aware of their own mistakes
People with humanity and humiliation
People in which everyone finds their place
As one big family
In the realisation
That we are all one

Time to overcome egoism
With the help of honesty, attention and God

Egoism, the destroyer, the devil in us…
